Today, my family and I played a board game called Blue Marble.
A week ago, my brother played outside with his friends. He didn’t play for a long time since the coronavirus is still bad. After he came home, he talked about what he had played, and he talked about playing Blue Marble with his friends. He said it was very fun and he asked mom if she could buy it for him. After some time, my mom said it was okay, so she bought it yesterday morning. It came last night, and we wanted to play the game but it was late at night, so we didn’t play it.
Today, at about ten o’ clock, we played Blue Marble. It’s called Blue Marble because it’s a game that a player goes around the world and buys countries, sells, and constructs structures. When we look at the Earth from space, it looks like a blue marble. And that’s why the name of the game is Blue Marble. My mom became the banker, and my dad, brother, and I became the players. We played with the original rule. In the first half of the game, we bought all the countries. Not paying even if we get to other player’s land. It took one hour to end it. Then, we started the second half. It only took ten minutes to finish it because my dad bought most of the land. He bought seventeen countries, and my brother bought ten, and I got seven. I didn’t have any money left even though I had a very little amount of land and haven’t been stolen. So, I was very upset. I thought it was very unfair. My dad had a triple amount of money. I suspect that the money my brother and I paid at the bank to buy a country had been mixed when my mom went to the restroom now that I think about it. But at that moment I cried a little but hid my tears.
My brother said we should play it again, but I didn't want to and I won’t play. Playing that game made my feelings bad. My brother or my mom don’t much care about winning or losing, but I’m very sensitive about that. I intentionally lose a game when the opponent is younger or can’t play the game well. But I am the youngest one in my house. Even though I knew it was kind of silly, I was very sad. I hope I win the next time I play the game.
