Last night the adults played this one twice. My MIL hated it, couldn't get it, didn't enjoy it. My wife and I like it, thought Tess would too. Oh well, win some, lose some. My wife won both games.

After the previous disaster, we broke out the old standard. I generally bring this or Rage when we visit. Tess is good at trick taking games. Back in her element, she won this one.

(When looking for an image, I found that the game had been rereleased all fantasy-style. Fun.)

Today the kids got in the act. I sat out this one out, but everyone else played. I'm not sure who won. (We just use regular cards for this.)

If my daughter is there, this game will hit the table. I should have the game and image id numbers memorized by now. This one followed close on the heels of Go Fish. I missed out on the Powerpuffs as well. Don't know who won. (Smart money is on my daughter.)

My wife and I used to play the heck out of this one years ago. We used to play the verson where only 24 cards are used. Those 24 cards are worn, the other cards, pristine. There' been much said about this game and its reissue lately, so I brought it along. I found that I'd lost my English rules, downloaded them today, and discovered that it can be played with all the cards, regardless of the number playing. We played it three handed that way today and really enjoyed it.I think this may breath some new life into this one. And I think the kids might be able to play this one as well (they enjoyed helping tonight). I won this one by a long ways, btw.

While my lovely wife put the kids to bed, Tess pounded me at cribbage. Beat me two games, and could have gone more, I'm sure. This is her game and if there was high-stakes cribbage somewhere, she would make out like a bandit.

That's "Oh, Shoot," in this house, Mister. I don't usually win this game (playing against Tess). I came very close tonight. But my wife, who wins less often than I do, snatched victory from with a nice comeback win.

We finished this evening with one quick three-man round of this new garage sale purchase (see: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...) just to see how it works. Cute game that might be fun at holiday family gatherings. I won, not that it matters in this game. What's important is that my wife and mother-in-law agree that I will be the one most likely to investigate strange noises in the night.
