Do You Still Own Physical Board & Puzzle Games? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked you if you still check your email while on vacation. Despite the fact that some of you never take any vacations, we did get a nice variety of votes for this poll, which show an interesting picture.

Out of 234 votes in total, 5% check their email seldom while on vacation, and only if they have to; 7% don’t check their emails on vacation at all; 13% only check their personal emails and leave work emails out of it; 14% check their email every couple of days just to make sure there’s nothing urgent; 22% check their emails about once a day, even while on vacation; and 39% of the voters check their emails often, even while on vacation.

So the majority of the voters keep on checking their email no matter what. Is that harmless, or are we getting too connected for our own good?

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

This week’s poll question is: Do You Still Own Physical Board & Puzzle Games?

Love our t-shirts? The best comment in this poll will get one of our geeky t-shirts. That’s right, for free! So get commenting!

This week, my friend bought a Rubik’s Cube. A real one. It brought back many childhood memories, and the realization that no software game will ever be able to truly replace this sophisticated puzzle. Monopoly, Uno, Settlers of Katan, Connect Four, Go… these are all very popular games that started as board games, but all of them have a tablet and even a smartphone version now. Do these software versions compare to the real thing? And do you still own the real games, or are they slowly going out of style?

Tell us in the comments everything you think about physical board games. What does the future hold for them?
