    This is great! Having worked in the field of Recreation, Sports & Leisure I can attest to the power of play in the lives of everyone; young to young at heart. Playing is when some of life's best learning happens.

      I soo feel that! I run an Adult Kickball League and agree the power of play is awesome!

    I enjoyed reading this! My 3 year old plays like a champ because he can take turns, win and loose, focus, and follow rules. All things that will hopefully help him as he grows.

    This is why GOLF is such a great Game ... really fits ALL 5 of these when you play with a group, especially in a diff. foursome each week as in "drawn"teams in men's Golf I play once a week.

    I love the tinkering one best. I learned so much from playing on sports teams when I was younger and can still hear the voice of my coach and his words of wisdom, including "Be a champion in practice—that's where champions are made."

    Great article. I really enjoy getting together with friends for a board game night. Some of my favorites are Apples to Apples, Fiasco and Arkham Horror. What do other people like to play?
