Playing Cards: Perfect Boredom Buster

By: Mike

The worst feeling in the world, and no one can disagree on this, is having plenty of time but no work to while it out. A rarity of course, but it happens in all of our lives. Also happens in our lives are those unwanted moments when we could not carry on with our plans because of sudden interruptions. Whether we get time to feel bored or boredom is thrust on us, the point is it is one harrowing experience to feel bored. Time just does not move. It is at these moments that playing cards prove to be the best alternative. Longest of waits are rarely felt as time just flies by when people are engrossed in this wonderful past time.

People who are mere spectators to a game of playing cards may find it slow and boring but never will the same sentiments be shared by the people who might be involved in this jolly activity. The biggest advantage of this game is that it is very cheap and can be availed and enjoyed by almost everyone. It is this aspect that probably shoots its popularity to every section of the society. What also makes it popular is the fact that any number of people can enjoy a game of cards. Right from one loan man to a multitude of six or eight.

Playing cards, it must be said is a passion that is not confined to any one country but its popularity transcends the narrow confines of border making it a truly global sport. What is striking here is that though the popularity of cards can be felt across the globe, there is some confusion about the origin with no one really sure of the fact that which country can be credited with the honor of inventing this lovely game.

Whatever might be the case one thing that simply cannot be debated is that is a game that is enjoyed world over and is also number one activity in many people's book when it comes to warding of boredom.
