Cue Card 2020 #46: Describe an experience when you played an indoor game with others?

Describe an experience when you played an indoor game with others?

You should say:

  • What you played
  • Who you played with
  • Why you played
  • How you felt about it?

Model Answer:

  • I’ve played several games, both indoor and outdoor games, and still try to play whenever I get time.
  • Among those games, I enjoyed playing chess more than others.
  • Chess is an indoor game where two players participate.
  • This game does not involve any major physical movements like other outdoor games but a chess player has to use his/her brain and make game plans to defeat the opponent.
  • I mostly play this game with my friends and cousins.
  • Sometimes I play it with my father and senior relatives.
  • Since playing chess requires only placing the board on a surface and sitting position of the two participating players, it is convenient to play chess almost anywhere.
  • I mostly play it at our veranda, garden or bedroom.
  • I enjoy this game because I have a fascination about this game from my childhood and I really like the overall theme and brainstorming involved in this game.
  • It’s a thought provoking game that gives the participating players to use their brains.
  • A player can apply his/her strategy, and then allure the opponent to fall in a trap, which is much like a real battlefield.
  • It’s not a game where someone would only use the physical movements rather the game requires perfect game plan, finding weakness of the opponent and a battle strategy.
  • This game gives you a feel of being the King of a regime where you decide yourcountrymen’s fate.
  • For all these reasons this is a very interesting and enjoyable game to me.
