365 Writing Prompts: The perfect game

You’re set to play poker( or scrabble or something else—-) with a group of four. Write a story set during this game.Or describe the ideal match, the players, the relationships— and the hidden rivalries.

I’ll go for Scrabble, this is a game I’m familiar with, or Monopoly, I’ve played both these games with my siblings many times and my children as well.

The only problem I face is one of my children does not like losing. Ideally we play games because it’s a source of entertainment, if there are players who’d like to win all the time, the game is stressful.

My ideal team would be: me, my daughter Seeta, my neighbor Jackie and my friend Joan. This to my knowledge will be an ideal team. None of us are worried about winning or losing.

We’d have our seven tiles, the tiles are always face down to avoid cheating. It is a good idea to be able to use all seven tiles at once, if I start the game. It all depends on what the letters are, if I get the letter “Q” and someone else gets “U” I won’t be able to use all the letters. there is a lot of strategy required to play the game well.

Concentration is one of the keys to win or come close to winning, also vocabulary is very important, dictionaries are not allowed.

If all the players get reasonably good letters the game is exciting, otherwise if you can tell from the very start who has a better chance it’s not that encouraging.
