"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Games to show off

Dear mentors,

Please let me know whether the following is correct and a good sentence.

Games are the best way to show off.

    Hi Voca.

    A bit difficult without context. Who is showing off? What kinds of games? Tiddlywinks?

    I would avoid using "the best way", maybe "one of the best ways", and think about giving a bit more information to your reader / target audience: "Games are a great way to show off to your friends".

    My intention is to ask people to play games, I just wanted to give them a reason why they should play. However, I do not want to give any reason such as, it's good for health, good for the body.

    I think your version is OK to use in such context. right?

    Thank you for your time.
