Vintage board games bring childhood memory
Remember all the board games from our childhood and the countless hours spent playing Marble Chess, Jenga, Mikado and many more! Lasting friendships were made and strengthened through these board games.
The No Limits Social Club Project Leaders Alfons and Sophie Mensdorff-Pouilly had this in mind when they organised a suite of exciting board and interactive games for our guests with disabilities last 27 August, 2022.
To kick start the event, our 8 volunteers and 11 guests played Blinde Kuh (Blind man’s Buff) a popular German game. Through shouts of “warmer” or “very cold” a blindfolded player is instructed by other players to crawl towards a pot. Once reached, the player needs to successfully hit the pot with a stick and retrieve the hidden treasure inside.
Having warmed everyone up with this rousing start, Sophie formed three teams for the board games. There was much shouting and screaming of both joy and despair as players lost themselves. in the excitement of the games . Our guests particularly enjoyed watching the Jenga towers collapse . Our volunteer Anna Tai, said, “I had so much fun playing Blinde Kuh, Mikado and Jenga with our guests! Thanks for having us!”
