Game news: Celebrities too fancy clever games.

Posted on: May 18, 2009

hollywood If you think that celebrities spend all their lives attending charming events, party and others social life activities, you’re wrong. Celebrities too like sometimes, stay at home with their relatives or with their closest friends and spend some of their spare time like “average people” .
Not everybody knows that in their free time Celebrities like to play board games:
For example Madonna and Guy Ritchie are Scrabble fans, just like Keanu
Reeves, Mel  Gibson, Nicole Kidman, Justin Timberlake, Sharon Stone, Amy Winehouse and Gwuineth Paltrow.
Other Hollywood stars just like every kind of board game:
Angelina Jolie and Brat pit like playing family games with their children and Teresa Palmer, Tahyna Tozzi and Natalie Kelly, love to host pyjamas parties and  during the weekends playing board games.
Other celebrities just like old classics, Drew Barrymore, Ashton Kutcher, Erin O’connor and Eva Herzigova love dominoes, instead Ashlee Simpson and Craig David prefer Monopoly.
Chess too is very popular among celebrities and famous people, Bill Gates is a great chess players (off course, He’s good with mathematics calculations); U2 star Bono Vox usually plays chess with his band before or after live performances to relax a little bit; Nicolas Cage instead can’t find  a good chess opponent among his Hollywood friends, because he’s really good at it, and Sting always leave some time to play chess with his musicians.
Even heads of states and important politicians can’t resist playing games:
Queen Elizabeth II declared that sometimes she plays Scrabble, Obama said that he always plays board games with his daughters and Hillary Clinton, always plays card games with the members of her staff.
There are lots of celebrities who are totally crazy about role games like Dungeons and Dragons (Jennifer Lopez), and Master and Commanders (Russell Crowe).
However, for both celebrities and normal people board games are always a great way to put everything behind and have fun with the people we care about.

Hello.
I must say that clevergames.wordpress.com is a wonderful forum!
I spent a lot of hours searching for a board relevant to my interests.

I liked clevergames.wordpress.com a lot. It has lots of useful info. This article is very professionally written. clevergames.wordpress.com I will be back for sure.

They don’t just play them, Daryl Hannah and Hilary Shepard have invented the game Liebrary manufactured by DiscoveryBay Games.

They will both be at The Chicago Toy and Game Fair signing copies of their game.
The inventors of the Game of Life, Jenga, Operation and others will also be there signing toys and game.

It is a terrific event and open to the public.

There is a terrific list of celebrities that play games at http://jergames.blogspot.com/2007/04/celebrities-who-play-board-and-card.html.

Also, we are working to make game inventors themselves celebrities. Many of their names and faces are popping up on game boxes. We have a Awards night for them, the Toy and Game Inventors of the Year, TAGI Awards, http://www.tagie.net, and some are even doing game tours (think book tours).
