I've been playing Monopoly this afternoon which has inspired the theme which we will leave up for two weeks. You can post a photo each week..

So board games, cards, table tennis .. if it's played inside then post it!

Chess is an indoors game even though this one is being played outside.

Here's an early table top version of that great indoor game, (ice) hockey! Taken at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, last year.

A home made Snakes and Ladders game, made to fill a void in the Spanish toy market. I drew the snakes, my 'marido' did the ladders.

A Jigsaw (still one of my favourite inside games) which contains a story and a half!
Some yeara ago Waddingtons Jigsaw started releasing a collectable Jigsaw each year, and unfortunately I failed to get the first in the series. After much trawling through Charity shops and Jigsaw forums - even Ebay where they were far too expensive - a very kind couple sold me the jigsaw for a reasonable price.
But the story doesn't end there! This year we decided to have a clear-out and seeming I don't have as much free time to do jigsaws as I used to, I started selling the collectable Jigsaws on Ebay. This particular Jigsaw sold, but unfortunately it never arrived at its destination. Whether it be the post's fault, or it decided to on its journey is not known. But it still brings happy memories because I had done it so many times
