I always enjoy a good story...and a good laugh.

Which is probably why I really enjoy watching stand up comedy.

Who are your favorite stand up comedians?

Being a parent is it's own supply of comedy gold. Sometimes things are clearly funny, other times we laugh just to not cry.

What is one of your funniest memories of/with/involving your kids?

Have you ever been to a game night with multiple tables set up for players enjoyment. As the evening progresses there is one table that seems to explode with laughter, and just be full of life. Players may switch in and out of that table, but it's always drawing the gaze of those not seated.

What game(s) are being played?

Has the fun translated when being played at home with the kids?

With the tail end of one games weekend, and one of our larger games events on Sunday, it's been a good week of gaming. In particular I managed to play 7 games of Terra Mystica in 10 days, which can't be bad! All with adults this week again - but this week is half-term, so next Monday there will be a list of games played with the kids again!

5 x Race for the Galaxy
3 x Terra Mystica
3 x Star Realms

1 x Amun-Re, Apples to Apples, Ascension, Blue Moon City, Cities and Knights of Catan, The City, Coloretto, Escalation, Goa, El Grande, Kingsburg, Lord of the Rings: Sauron, Machi Koro, Power Grid, Qwixx, Say Anything, Splendor, Take it Easy, Telestrations, Through the Ages, Ticket to Ride, Time's Up, Time's Up Title Recall (half a game), Vikings, Werewolves

Not a lot of time for games last week, but we still managed to get a few played...

Played with Miss B...
 6   Balanx x2 - Becoming something of a favourite with Miss B, who is developing a taste for abstract strategy games.
 N/A   Pick Up Sticks x2 - Keeps coming back as a filler.
 N/A   Cambio - More abstract strategy with nice, chunky wooden cubes.

With adults...
 7   Timeline: Diversity x2 - A couple of quick rounds at lunchtime while we were waiting to see who would turn up. Went down very well.
 7   Tales & Games: The Hare & the Tortoise x2 - Always amuses me how often someone says something like, "The wolf is really weak" and then the next time the wolf wins.

On my own...
 6   Lord of the Rings: The Adventure Deck Game - And I got a win!

Now, this coming weekend is UK Games Expo, so hopefully I'll get to play something there -- though I'll be spending some time running a playtest, and some time helping at my cousin-in-law's stand, which will limit stuff a bit, but I'm sure some gaming will happen.

I'll go Splendor for Game-of-the-Week, since Preston (6) has been playing it more and more. As I type this, he woke up early for school so that we could get a game in while waiting for the bus. I snuck by him 15-13



 10   Android: Netrunner x12. The boys and I are finished up our exploration of the first data pack, doing what we call "deck swapping" (no outside faction influence allowed, with a focus on trying the new cards). Some early deckbuilding games using the first pack this week. Both boys are beating me more than their fair share with these new decks. I'm noticing that often my very favorite games are ones that I am pretty good at, but not quite really good at whistle
 5   Igloo Pop x2
 10   Race for the Galaxy x2
 7   Splendor x2
 7   Sushi Go! x2
 6   The Magic Labyrinth x2. A rare game for Mommy
 5   Gulo Gulo
 8   Love Letter
 4   Viva Topo!

Allow me to be another to celebrate playing Amun-Re! We had some friends visiting for the weekend; they love playing our games, and have bought a few themselves so we make sure we play a mix of old favourites and things new to them. The weather was so nice that we sat outside on the lawn and played several games on Saturday afternoon. I never realised that sunburn was a potential games playing hazard before.

Amun-Re x 1
Ticket to Ride Europe x 1
Metro x1
Apples to Apples x 1
Strozzi x 1
King of the Elves x 1
Great Dalmuti x 1
7 Wonders x 2
Furstenfeld x 1
Notre Dame x 1
Kingdom Builder x 1
