Although I do not gamble, I do like to play card games and board games for social reasons. I grew up with brothers and am very competitive, so I enjoy the challenge of a good card game or board game, like Monopoly or Clue.
Sometimes I will play a few social games online. It is difficult to determine the ability of other players on the internet if you have not had the chance to play with them earlier. So taking a chance on the internet is a very big gamble, but when it pays off it is very nice to win a few games.
