Happy Tuesday! Lets Play a Game, Shall We?


I like games, a little less on the board games then I used to but, I play them when there is no power, no internet and, no way in hell I can get out of it. Games have become all about the computer now… for most of us.

My favorites are Scrabble and more old school ones such as Chess, or Othello (stones). We have a lot of games here in my house though. My wife is a fan of a game called Mastermind where you are supposed to catch a art thief… I think similar to clue. I wouldn’t know though as I haven’t played it. 🙂 Kids play it with her. The there is Mad Magazine… which I had to get on EBay for her birthday once year since I couldn’t find one in a store.

The kids I managed to get interested in Chess, although I would say their favorites were always Candyland when they were younger. Now it’s card games (I taught them Poker too). They play Exploding Kittens and Disturbed Friends, Magic the Gathering and several others one looks like it has Gnomes on it… weird. Although I guess considering I Played Dungeons & Dragons I’m not one to talk… (they play that too a little).

The weird Gnome game I spoke of it’s pretty fun!

Then of course, there is Monopoly…. in it’s many, many forms of play. Star Wars, Harry Potter, Battlestar Galactica, You name it there is a version for Monopoly, I think we have four different versions, Including one with the original lead pieces that looks well loved. I have quite a few of the old retired pieces. This year Monopoly retires three more and adds new ones.
