    1. Most often, I find myself playing online games - the ones you can play in your web browser.

      Scrabble and Reversi. That's funny. There's a balance right there!

      1.Have you ever noticed that Scrabble has square pieces while Reversi has round pieces?

      2. Scrabble has letters on its pieces while Reversi pieces are made of whole dots or dots on a dice.

      Both games have something in common, though, same colors, complementing colors, word-forming and number-forming/counting. These games help one to revise their knowledge and speed of thinking.

      Most of the games, nowadays, have become digital and can be played, even on a computer!

    Have a nice day!

    1. G+ doesn't have an auto-follow option so we have to do it manually, at least for now!

      Thank you very much for taking the time and trouble - I couldn't find a link to your G+ profile on your blogger blog though.

      And then, I found it remarkable for you to have found my profile, but then I realized that I commented with a link to my profile on your blog.

      I was going to think the spirits were all powerful, but then I realized the God of Prosperity shined light upon me!
