The family that plays together...

I've played games since I can remember. Card games with my parents and their friends and board games with friends and family. Seems like a much healthier activity than sitting in front of the TV all day. Still to this day it continues...


My parents visited for a week in the fall and 5 of the 7 nights we spent together we had a card game or a board game out. One of Mom's personal favourites, Ticket to Ride, got played repeatedly (the Nordic Countries edition that week). Mom loves TTR so much she went out and bought her own copy of the game.


Might sound sappy but I really think games bring people together - a bit of healthy competition and a ton of interaction is a lot more meaningful than an evening glued to a television....


Latest Dominion Strategy: Buy only the cards that let you draw more cards (i.e. Smithy and Council Room). It seems to work for the drunk Romanian...

  1. For what it's worth, the blog is awesome reading. It's making me all anxious for the yard saling season to start so I can go back to looking for board game purchases again. Up until my last couple moves, I had 30-ish titles but nothing as obscure as yours. Fricking love this stuff - fantastic Monday reading. :)
