The term "recreational" games is somewhat of a misnomer, in the sense that it sounds as though they are not as challenging, or a “soft” option, compared with sports. In fact, recreational games or rec games in the context of Inter Hall are not just recreational at all. They are less muscular, but no less competitive, nor are they any easier to master. The rec games played at IH level are International chess, Chinese chess, bridge, Othello, weiqi, scrabble, boggle, darts, carrom and snooker.
