A terrific family Christmas gift

While I'm technically not back to regular blogging until after the New Year, I wanted to pop in here briefly to thank one of my sisters for a truly fun and enjoyable Christmas gift.

She sent us this game. And we've been playing and laughing and enjoying it so much!

The crazy comparisons set the stage for unintentional hilarity--like when a category card says "Delicate" and a daughter plays the card "Men." Or when the category is "Cuddly" and your hand is full of things like Rocks, The Ark, and Judas Iscariot.

One of my girls tonight said this game was even better than video games. :)

Did you have a nice Christmas, too?

Back soon!

We've never tried the Bible version, but do have the Junior version. It is tons of fun! My mom brought Scrabble Flash for us and we all took turns being addicted to it.

My Kids are younger, but we buy them each (well, except the baby) a board game every year.

This year we got Rivers, Roads and Rails (Fun! A German-style tile laying game simple enough for the young'uns)

Richard Scarry's Busytown game (Much more exciting than Candyland, and the 'goldbug challenges' are a lot of fun. Also, it's cooperative, so more fun, fewer tears.)


Snails Pace - a game where you bet on racing snails. Unfortunately, we haven't gotten to play a whole game yet, because the snails are gigantic wooden things and the baby has declared that they are his. So we need to save this one for naptime. Because the snails are his, and the other children (who actuially OWN the game) may NOT TOUCH THEM. Sigh. They are pretty, though. And now he knows the phrase 'my game.'

We have friends coming for New Year's and they're bringing the latest Dominion expansion and Pandemic. We're looking forward to it--we don't usually get the chance to play big people games.....

We have another version of the A-to-A game as well and have loved it for years, although we don't play it nearly enough.
