Board Game Day
Today, 24 people showed up for our winter board game day! Groups played all kinds of games, including Life, Apples to Apples, chess, checkers, and Scattergories. A group even tried out my new random game Quelf, with rave reviews.
The deal was that if a group played a game by the rules to the end, the winner would get a box of movie candy. (For games like chess and checkers, you could only get candy once, even if you played multiple times.) I gave away 26 boxes of candy, plus we ate our way through four bags of potato chips, several pounds of other candy, and a bunch of soda and lemonade!
The best moments of the day included Saranjeet needing two cars to carry her family in Life, Owen naming one of his Life children "Ke$ha," Kathy singing "Rawhide" while waving her scarf in the air like a lasso, and Janae thinking McCain was a U.S. President. I also had fun teaching a group how to play Scattergories with the rules. And, thanks to Jasmine for bringing in Tutti Frutti...dinging that bell was a lot of fun!
If you like board games, we'll have them out at the Random-A-Thon in February. Be sure to sign up!
