Wyoming’s Favorite Board Game Starts With M and It’s Not Monopoly
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, seeing as how you'll be surrounded by family and friends, perhaps one of the things you may indulge in after dinner is a fun board game. Maybe you already have that as a tradition. Or maybe you have game night every week. Regardless of how you do it, everyone has their favorite board game. So what is Wyoming's?
I am not someone who has typical game nights and I feel like it's been years and years since I've had my fill of board games. That is, of course, if 'Cards Against Humanity' doesn't count. It's not a 'board' game, so it shouldn't count really. However, there was the traditional Christmas Eve that my brother and best friend had done for several years consecutively when we played Monopoly.
That is one of the most intense board games you can ever play, especially given the competitive nature we played with. There were many games where someone would flip the board in frustration by the end of the game. I would say that Monopoly would be my favorite, as it is for many others. It was even the favorite board game for the most states, as chosen by eight of them. But one of those was not Wyoming. However, Wyoming's pick does start with an 'M'. It's something called Mancala. What...Is...That?
Apparently it's something that looks like that above. Honestly, I've never played it. According to this video, this is how...
As for me, I'll stick to Monopoly. But yes, Wyomingites enjoy some Mancala. Hungry Hungry Hippos, Dungeons & Dragons, Backgammon, and Chess rounded out the top five in terms of how many states picked each game as their favorite. Wyoming was the only state to pick Mancala.
So perhaps this holiday weekend, maybe you'll have a fun game of Mancala. As for me, if I play a board game, I think I'll stick with Monopoly.
