Our Top 3 Board Games For the Family on a Rainy Season

12:42:00 AM

 


When the rainy season comes, most of us in the family sing the children's song "Rain, Rain, Go Away" because we want the rain to go away and come again on another day. But today, it seems that the rainy season is unpredictable because of climate change. Let us do our part, at least in the simplest ways, to help reverse the effect or be resilient to the changing climate.

But we're not going to talk more about climate change, but we're here to discuss the board games we play during the rainy season. So, what do you think are the top three (3) board games commonly played at this time of the year?

There are many board games that we can play and enjoy. Some are easy to play, and other board games are complicated, but all are fun, especially at home during the rainy season.

But before we indulge ourselves in naming which of these board games are on top of our list, let us check out its definition and explanation first. According to Wikipedia, a Board game is defined as tabletop games that are typically pieces that are moved or placed on a pre-marked board or playing surface and often include elements of table, card, role-playing, and miniatures games. Many of these games are competitions between two or more players, and most of these represent real-life situations. Lastly, these board games, basically have different types of rules to be followed to enjoy the game.

So, according to us, here are the Top 3 Board Games for Families during a rainy season.

Scrabble. This board game is the first on our list. It is also one of my favorite board games that really enhances our capability.

It is a word game that basically enhances your vocabulary. Families can enjoy playing this game together. It is played by two or four players, so if you're a family of four that would be great. Players score points by placing tiles on the board forming a word, each tile bears a single letter and each letter has corresponding points. The game board is divided into a 15x15 grid of squares. The tiles must form a simple or complex word in a crossword fashion. It read from left to right in rows or downwards.

To be more acquainted with the game you can always check out its rules online or with the attached paper indicating its production date.

Monopoly. This is the game that teaches us how to invest, budget, and spend. Though it is in a game mode of learning, still, you can learn from it.

It is a multiplayer game that is themed about economics. Meaning, this will teach us about the economic process in a simple way. In the game, each player will roll two dice to move around the board game. The game gives emphasis more on the buying and selling of properties, thus later on monopolizing everything and that's how you win the game.

Snakes and Ladders is the third on our list of board games. Just like Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders use dice and board with boxes to move around, the only difference between monopoly and snakes and ladders is the use of paper money as means of barter.

When the players roll dice and navigate the board. Landing on a ladder means advancing a square further up the board while landing on a snake means they have to go back to a previous square. The game aims to reach the final square. This game is a race that's based on sheer luck and is popular with children.

These three board games are our choices that families can play together, especially during the gloomy and wet weather or the rainy season.

With the advances in technology, board games are moving out of the board and into the digital world. If you're tired of playing the usual board games or if you're going solo and wanted to have the old school board games, better play in the digital world. The net is a vast resource. All you have to do is search!

The Hunger Games, Showing Today

11:20:00 AM

Thanks to Chicken Deli I will have a chance to watch the movie "The Hunger Games".  Just hoping to get there on time to get the tickets and also the dinner.  Hahaha!

So, The Hunger Games, what was about this movie and why most people are eagerly waiting to watch this?  The actors, perhaps, or the story.  I don't know anything about how it is foretold in the book written by Suzanne Collins.  It is a bestseller young-adult book in 2008 and I have not read it err I did not read it because of lack of sources, etc.  This movie is starred by Jennifer Lawrence who played Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, directed by Gary Ross.

The story is set in a future where food shortages is chronic and the outskirt regions are being suppressed.  The only thing left to do to avoid suppression is to annually provide 24 young people by lottery to compete and fight to the death on live television.  

So, I'm very anxious to watch the movie as well and learn why people are expecting this.

2012 Jr. NBA Presented by Alaska Program Returns for the Fifth Year

7:55:00 AM


One of the most interesting sports in the world and of course the all time favorite sports of Filipinos, the Basketball.  Fortunately the sponsor for this event is also my all time favorite team in Philippine Basketball, the Alaska Aces.  Though most of the star players the team that I looked onto before were not there anymore, still, it's my favorite team.  I just wish sometime that they would reunite and try to have a friendly match with the other teams.

So much with reminiscing of the past but instead get into the details about this event for this year. 


The event was held inside of the Treston International School' basketball court.  It was really a shrinking feeling seeing those gigantic basketball players roaming around the basketball court.  This event was a Tip-off for the 2012 Jr. NBA presented by the Alaska Program and this year was their fifth consecutive year for the Philippines.

Kids will sure love to be part of the basketball program by Jr. NBA.


Here's what they say about this program...

The Jr. NBA presented by Alaska is back in the Philippines for the fifth consecutive year, with first-time stops in Puerto Princesa, Pampanga and Cagayan de Oro.  Alaska Powdered Milk Drink will serve as the presenting partner of the Jr. NBA program for the second consecutive year.


The Jr. NBA is the league's international youth development program that promotes basketball participation, sportsmanship and teamwork, and an active lifestyle among children.  In addition to the three new cities, the 2012 Philippines schedule will also include Metro Manila, where the Jr. NBA National Training Camp will take place.  The program is open to boys between 10 and 14 years old.


"We have a great partner in Alaska, which shares our dedication to youth sports development and has played a vital role in the growth of the Jr. NBA program," said Scott Levy, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, NBA Asia.  "With the involvement of all our partners, the Jr. NBA program continues to expand and touch the lives of more young players, coaches, educators, and parents."

"Alaska is committed to developing talent at the youth level and we are pleased to return as presenting partner," said Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, Jr., President and CEO, Alaska Milk Corporation.  "The Jr. NBA is a great fit with Alaska's mission to nurture talent and promote a healthy lifestyle through sports from a young age, and we look forward to another successful program this year."


This year's program will tip off with a coaching clinic in Manila on Jan. 14, and will then travel to Puerto Princesa in Palawan for a coaching clinic on Jan 15 and a school clinic on Jan. 16.  From Palawan, the Jr. NBA will return to Central LUzon on Jan. 18 for a school clinic and NBA Cares event in flood hit Pampanga.  The Jr. NBA will also hold an NBA Cares activity on Jan. 19 in Cagayan de Oro, which was recently devastated by Typhoon Sendong, followed by a schol clinic on Jan 20.

School clinics will continue during the months of February and March in Metro Manila in the lead up to the Regional Selection Camps which will be held in Puerto Princesa (Apr 10 - 11), Cagayan de Oro (Apr 14 - 15), Pampanga (Apr 17 - 18) and Manila (Apr 21 - 22).  Upon completion of the Regional Selection Camps, the top 50 players from all over the country will be slected to participate in the three-day Jr. NBA National Training Camp to be held in early May in Manila.  As part of Alaska Milk's support of the Jr. NBA, 10 of the 50 National Camp participants will be selected from this year's Alaska Basketball Power Camp.  The program will culminate with the selection of the Jr. NBA All-Star Team providing the 10 best campers a unique NBA experience and the opportunity to play against a Jr. NBA team from another country.

Similar to last year, the 2012 Jr. NBA Coach of the Year presented by Alaska will be announced at the Jr. NBA National Training Camp, where the top 10 finalists for the award will be invited to participate as assistant instructors.  The award winner will be announced on the last day of the national training camp.  Coaches interested in joining the search for Coach of the Year can log onto the Jr. NBA website for more details.

This year, Jr. NBA coach and former NBA player Martin "Marty" Conlon, who played for several NBA teams including the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics, will oversee the program along with local coaches selected by the NBA, as well as members of the Alaska Aces coaching staff. The coaches will assist in teaching the NBA skill stations as well as communicating the importance of the Jr. NBA core values of sportsmanship, teamwork, a positive attitude, and respect (S.T.A.R.).  An NBA legend will participate in the national training camp and community outreach programs through NBA Cares.

The Jr. NBA program, together with its partners, will reinforce key values such as the importance of sports participation for parents and children, and will educate children, parents and coaches on children's health and nutritional requirements.  In addition to Alaska Powdered Milk Drink, Gatorade returns as a partner this year and Spalding will once again act as the official supplier.  Jr. NBA official broadcast partners are Basketball TV, NBA Premium TV and Studio 23, with the Manila Bulletin serving as the official media print partner.  Jr. NBA is also supported by the Basketball Coaches Association of the Philippines (BCAP).  Provincial Host Cities include Puerto Princesa, Pampanga and Cagayan de Oro.

The Jr. NBA first visited the Philippines in early 2007 at 16 Metro Manila private and public schools.  The program expanded to 200 schools and 20,000 participants in 2008-09 and to 300 schools and 30,000 students in 2009-10.  In 2011, the program reached more than 400 schools and 40,000 students, parents, and coaches across the country.  Each year a new city benefits from the grassroots basketball program that involves not just young players but also their parents and coaches.  The program remains free in all its stages for local coaches and young Filipino boys who want to join the program.  Registration is now ongoing through the Jr. NBA event website www.jrnba.com.ph.  Fans can also follow us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/jrnbaphilippines and our official Twitter Feed at http://twitter.com/NBA_Philippines
