Chit Chat: Playing Catch Up

Chit Chat: Playing Catch Up
Tracy and I have been having a blast since Friday with company. Our cousin came up for the weekend. He is the one that owns over 200 board games and any time he is up he brings a carload of them so that we can have board gaming marathons. So we have spent the last 3 days playing board games, having delicious food, and having Big Bang Theory marathons. Being busy having all this fun has put us behind schedule though. We haven't gotten any blogging done or ran any errands.

Every time our cousin comes, he brings a lot of games that we have never played before along with a few of our favorites. One of our favorites that he always brings is Mice and Mystics. It is a board game that also involves a story. You play a chapter at a time, so it can take weeks to actually finish the game and that's not including the expansions for it. The story is so interesting though! New games that we tried and loved this time in Smash Up and the game Agents of Smersh. Check them out on Amazon. Do you know any great games?

We also had book club on Saturday. We met at our friend Deidra's house to discuss The Rosie Project. It was a pretty good book. Not a book I would have chosen for myself and that is a good thing about book club. The other members constantly choose books that I wouldn't have chosen for myself, so I am finding things that I have loved but would have never found on my own. Hopefully, I have chosen books that have helped my friends in the same way. Next month we meet to discuss Pines by Blake Crouch. It looks like an interesting book, so I hope it turns out that way!

  1. Oh man, I love Smash Up!! I think I would enjoy this carload-options game night of yours very much! Have you ever played Small World? It's similar in some small ways to Smash Up, but maybe a bit more complicated.


Thank you for your lovely comments. They really make our day.
