When I was a kid, I always wished I was older. My friends and I would play games pretending we were ‘grown-ups.’ I was sure I would be an actress, living in a mansion in Malibu, with a wonderful husband—all because the game ‘M.A.S.H’ told me so. My mother used to say, “Trust me, Jen. When you’re older, you’ll wish you were young again.”

The games I played as a child were full of imagination and innocence. There were no dating games or addictions to games, and playing ‘make-believe’ did not automatically stereotype you as a nerd. It seems to me as we grow up, the games get a lot more complicated. In a way, life becomes a game.

This issue of Klipsun takes a look at all meanings of the word ‘games.’ From a new type of treasure hunting to the depths of Bond Hall on a Saturday night, this issue covers the variety of games played today. Klipsun features a spin on an old American classic. Bingo, and the underlying games that exist in the online dating world. The Locker Room reveals the spirit of sports in every aspect as it has been passed down through the generations of the Locker family. And, as you probably expected, we couldn’t resist the temptation of highlighting the most popular drinking games played in college in Competitive Consumption.
