• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

What games to you play?

Cribbage, Farkel are our usual games. I’m not a big card player but my G/F and her family play Euchre
At the casino I prefer Blackjack/21. It is my serious gambling game

I occasionally play Call of Duty, GTA, Fallout, or hockey on the Xbox One.

I like chess but never have anyone to play it with.

I also play real ice hockey year round.

I'm having trouble finding games to play. I used to be addicted to mmorpgs, but they lost their allure as my friends stopped playing and the games itself discouraged player connection and friendship.

All I really play is CSgo and GTA 5 with Mods on PS4. I'm not sure how I'm going to get away from it. The voice chats in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are incredible. Every day, I get to shoot the breeze with kids who appear to be rather intelligent. There was a lot of laughs and a satisfying strategy debate with strangers. I play solo, so I lose or encounter mean people around half of the time, but the good stuff makes it worthwhile, and CSgo will continue to be my primary game from this point forward.

I have been playing table tennis for over 50 years with over a hundred tournaments. I love coaching especially kids. People don't believe me when I tell them my racket costs $350 bucks. "Hands Like A Laser...Legs Like A Sloth".

I played my fair share of card and board games when I was a kid in the 60's. Once that phase was over I really didn't care for games of any kind. When my son was younger I used to join him occasionally in things like the Nintendo games. Yeah, it was new and kinda fun but it never really grabbed me. Now I have grandkids and I can't believe how far video games have come along since the late 80's/early 90's. The graphics alone are amazing. But it still doesn't grab me.

Guess I'm just a dull, old school kinda guy. No apologies either.

Reading, trying my hand with art, guitar and a good cup of coffee. Now you're talking!!

I played the kid's PS way back. Madden Football. SOCOM was the only shooter game I played. I actually finished all the missions and levels before the boys did. I never played online though. I liked Grand Tourismo too.
I played Flight Sim on my laptop That was actually relaxing in a weird way. I probably have over 1,000 hours flight time. I'd put on some smooth jazz station, turn on the tv to some sporting event, mute, and did stuff like trying to take small places around the globe. I actually played to break some unhealthy bad habits.

I'm a big chess nerd. And I played baseball in highschool.

When not at work, I can be found playing blues guitar, playing chess, watching the Cubs, or reading. I lightheartedly consider myself the most cultured mechanic around :p

Phantasmagoria. Otherwise, known as the game of life. It provides all the entertainment one may ever need. Or not need…many times in one 24hr period. 🫤

Wow I can't believe that I started this thread 16 years ago! Yes Wilco, Virtual Mechanix creates 3D vehicle models for games, and I have another small business called RevHeadz that makes interactive engine sounds apps. Btw no worries at all posting the pic.
