Thumb up

Eyes Opened

I grew up in a family that played Hearts, a little Cribbage, and Pitch. We dabbled a bit in Monopoly, Life, Scrabble... stuff you can find in a big box store, and no more.

Over the last couple of years, I had heard vague things about this game called "Settlers of Catan" but never took much time to take a look at it.

A few weeks ago, a co-worker mentioned Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne as a couple of fun IOS apps that had been made from successful boardgames. I found this peculiar, as I hadn't heard of either of them.

I stopped by the local game store in the mall and picked up a copy of Carcassonne... this has opened my eyes to a whole new avenue of game options!

My bright seven-year-old daughter loves the game, so Ticket to Ride and Blokus are a couple of her (my?) Christmas presents.

I have yet to buy Catan... with Christmas so close, I'll hold off until the season passes and see what other games might show up!
