On occasion, white Brits will not be in the mood to go out to their usual sophisticated nightspots. To avoid the feeling of having become old and boring, they will mentally regress to the age of nine and organise a board games evening.
This will involve one or more of the following: Scrabble, Balderdash, Cluedo, Cranium, Risk, the Really Nasty Horse Racing Game, Connect 4, Trivial Pursuit, Boggle and, of course, Monopoly. Novelty board games, such as the Murder, She Wrote board game and the Harry Potter Cluedo are considered the acme of board game fun. Usually centred around words and creativity, these games seem to be designed specifically for white Brits. Lego and Top Trumps are an example of children’s games also favoured by adult white Brits, and these may be included in the evening’s activities.
More often than not, the board game evening will also involve alcohol to add a degree of maturity to the proceedings. It is only a small step from board games to poker nights, preferably held in a darkened room while listening to jazz. If you wish to be ironic, suggest a night of bridge and sherry-drinking.
