Such a classic start to almost all stories written by children. I didn’t want to title today’s post that way, but it really did fit. Tonight is a crazy evening with high winds and tons of rain. We’ve already lost power a few times over the past couple of days. We are expecting to lose it again some time this evening. But that won’t stop us from having a nice quiet Saturday night as a family.
We already have a fire burning- warming up our family room. Dinner was made, enjoyed, and the dishes cleared away. We’ve gotten into our pajamas, house coats, & slippers early this evening in order to lounge and relax.
On the table tonight is Tsuro, Yardmaster, Timeline:Inventions, Timeline:Diversity, Timeline:Science&Discoveries, Nightmare Before Christmas Yahtzee, Nightmare Before Christmas Trival Pursuit, & Poop.
Timeline seems like a good educational style game as you try and play all your cards based on history in a timeline.
Tsuro is a path game where you place tiles and try to remain the last stone on the board. Quick and strategic.
Poop is a card game all about flushing a toilet without overflowing. Humorous and silly.
Yardmaster is about moving trains (I should be great at that one, since it is my regular job).
We love gaming as a family, and even though we still have electricity, not every moment we spend together as a family should be infront of a screen. That being said, I’m going to publish tonight’s blog and check out until tomorrow.
