Most of the time here at FMA is spent working, studying, etc., but on the weekend (if you have not been given work hours) we get a day-and-a-half just to chill. During this time, one can get bored easily, but it is like they say here, “the intelligent person is never bored.”
The board game arena is a great way to pass the time; just get ready to put your money where your mouth is. As the weekend goes on, players become more and more serious, until there are ten dollar a piece, winner take all, Risk games going on. If you want to bypass the board game and just go straight to putting your money where your mouth is, there is, of course, poker. With pots getting up to twenty dollars, novices have to beware they don’t bankrupt themselves in a few hands. Texas Hold ‘Em’s the favorite, although there are others that can be equally profitable or unprofitable depending on your luck.
Sometimes, we just feel like sitting back and reading a book. Fortunately FMA has quite a library and there is also a system set up for swapping your own books between the heavy readers here, and some of us have quite a collection. All this creates the recipe for a very chill weekend.
