The last time i engaged in my meaningful activity (Cards) was last Saturday night. Me and my flatmates were having a night in at home so decided to watch a movie, we were just getting into it when suddenly the tv and lights flickers then turned off. Damn another power cut! the whole street was out!. we sat in the dark for while until i went and got some candles and set them up on the coffee table. we had just enough light to see each other. Hmm what to do now we thought, someone suggested cards and we all agreed. We decided on playing blackjack (a game we don't often play) two of my flat mates didn't really know how to play but i explained the rules and aim of the game then we had a practice. They picked it up prity fast and it wasn't long before it started to get competitive. Everyone seemed hyped up and excited, maybe it was because of the changed environment. Before we new it the lights came back on, its almost as though we were disappointed when the lights and tv came back on, we were having so much fun playing cards the time flew by. We played for at least an hour.
So remember if your ever have to go without power there are plenty of good card games to keep you occupied for a few hours.
