I don't really like bunco

a bunch of people I know started a bunco group and invited me to join. I went once then realized I had to pay ten dollars and I told them I could use ten dollars for something really cool and I would only come if it was free.

so they kicked me out of the group but I still always end up going because they always need subs.

and they are desperate enough that I usually don't pay.

plus I always argue with everyone that it's gambling and I have a moral objection to it.

so I went to bunco last night.

these are my probs. with bunco.

IT takes way too long........I could happily cut the game in half and be content but for some reason it continues on like a very boring made for tv movie or the FULL game of monopoly.
like who actually has played a full game of monopoly till the end?
when I was little we just saw who could buy the most properties and then we quit.
but it draaaaaaaaaaags on. until I'm extremely tired and getting weird.

also...
It's mindless. I've had multiple nightmares of counting dice the night after bunco. It's just like...1,2,3...uhhhh 1, 2, 3.....uhhh what number are we on?

monotonous.

So I end up usually talking too much and distracting the die hards or teasing people until they want to leave. Like last night I was annoying people with discussing the evils of artificial sweeteners. joy joy joy.

on a new note we are all healthy again hooray!

I'm so with you. I don't really understand why it is so popular. It doesn't appeal to me at all.

Bunco according to wikipedia: "Bunco began as a progressive dice game in England, later being imported to the American West as a gambling activity." Of course, if nothing of value such as money or material items are on the line, then it is not considered a gambling activity. Pretty straightforward if you ask me! :-)
