Small Happies: Play

Saturday evening we were invited over to a friend’s house for dinner and… Catan! In a world of lunch dates and happy hours and parties where only 1/4 of your guests actually show up, it was ridiculously nice to sit around, drink wine, eat strawberry licorice, play games, make voices, sing songs, be goofy and enjoy each others’ time. More of this please.

  1. Yes. The boy’s friends from university (who are the ones who happen to be here) are all engineers and I love these get togethers where people eat, play, have fun. They are all engineers, so their new thing is a game called “Power Grid” , it is actually lots of fun.
    I want to get a board game called “Pandemic” about preventing the next big epidemic (yeah I am a bit of a freak like that).
    But otherwise I am a big big fan of Scrabble and Monopoly, they were so traditional in our families, I made sure they were part of our household.

  2. Oh yes, Catan is a good one! I’m glad to see, we’re not the only one enjoying board games with our friends!

    Amanda: Pandemic is actually one of my favorites. The big plus is that we all play together so, either we win together (we’re CDC’s super-agents! yay!), either we lose together (eaten by a flesh-eating disease) but there is no possibility for one (usually me, but I’m definitely not the only one!) to get angry at the others for being a poor looser… ๐Ÿ™‚
