Hi Mary. Nice to know that celebrities can be like the rest of us but sad not to see even one of them playing a numbers/maths game. Or can I take some small comfort in thinking that the ones that have declared a blanket "various board games" might just have one lying around.


Hi Tom,

Interesting point about math games. My guess is that people in movies, television and theatre are more about words than numbers. That's why so many of them play Scrabble.


Tom Lennett

Hi Richard. Perhaps their agents do the maths games!

Dominoes is a numbers/math game. You score multiples of 5. I think its called Klondike. Matching is the basic game. Go to the barrio or the hood and see how mathematical you have to be to win.


The list seemed so one dimensional. There are 100's of games out there that are more interesting and fun than the ones listed. It almost seems like people just listed one they remember from their childhood and moved on.

Hi Kate,

Thank you for commenting.

Actually, these are games the stars listed currently play, not ones from their childhood.

Everyone has different tastes in music, books and games!

Very beautiful pictures of your game fair. I would like to attend these kind of game fair in future. I like board games specially scrabble,because it's a knowledgeable game.

The Scrabble Word Finder

Once again a great job....Always very informative and well thought out. Look forward to the next one!

It's really great to see that celebrities love to play board games as well. We believe that the experience we can get from playing board games is incomparable especially in this day and age where hand-held and electronic devices are everywhere. If you like both word games with Math twist yet fun and can have a lot of social interaction at the same time, pls. check out our newly invented word game called Bull's-eye were people say they enjoyed more than Scrabble. It's a word game like no other. Check out our website and see how our game can be fun, build confidence and socialization in every player :)Great for ages 5-85 :)
