It's been a while since I have been abled to post another "Dad Gets Beat By Lady X" geeklist, but the little mistress of games gave me an idea for something different.

She has become quite proud of her game collection. Apparently, my money and effort to acquire these games means nothing as she has taken all the credit of ownership.

Fine. Be that way... but one day I shall have my revenge!

Without further ado, here is a list of Lady X's favorite games with comments from her own two lips. There are a lot more games that she plays (I'd say close she knows how to play about 35 different game), but these are the ones she plays most often.

This is what I would call Lady X's first "real" game. This is the first one she really got the idea of strategy and the "let's get Dad" attitude. She cut her teeth on this at 4 years old and hasn't looked back.

Lady X's Comments: "This game is a lot of a fun. I like beatting Dad at this one and I can add my cards on my fingers, but I do it under the table so no one can see. Plus, the cards are cool to look at."

I love to shop at the Thrift Shop and I am always keeping an eye open for a bargain. When I saw this little game for $3, I figure I couldn't lose.

I never expected Lady X to become a holy terror with this game at the mere age of 5.

Lady X's Comment: "The dinosaurs are way too cool. I like eatting Dad's men. Sometimes, I let him get close to the end before I eat him. The movies are also too cool, but I like playing the game a lot more."

She was a mere 3 years old when we played her first boardgame. It was this little game that everyone seems to own. I am glad to say that she has pretty much outgrown it, but sometimes she wants to play it for old times sake.

Lady X's Comments: "I use to like this game, but its not much fun now. It takes a long time to play and I hate having to go back. I can still beat my Dad."

I know... this is a strange game to find on this list, but this is probally Lady X's second favorite game. She learned to play this one at 5 and 1/2, but the luck factor gives her a lot more wins that she should get. *grumble grumble*

Lady X's Comments: "The dragon heads are awesome. I like eatting Dad's people with the sharks. Sometimes, I forget to move my boats, but I still win enough. I really like this game a lot."

Lady X and her sisters are big on card games and they are also big on Disney Princesses. It should be no surprise that this game is played as much as Rat-A-Tat Cat. lady X could play this game really good by age 5 and she is teaching her younger sister (Princess S, age 3) to become a decent player.

I just suck at this game, period.

Lady X's Comments: "The dragon card is really neat. It makes people pick up cards. I like the pricnesses on the cards and I like making Dad pick up a lot of cards. I like to play this game a lot."

Surprise! Lady X reminded me that we play this game every time we are at a restraunt. She plays it with her sisters, but they are starting to move beyond it.

She loves the video of the chicken playing tic-tac-toe. She is convinced the chicken could beat me every time.

Lady X's Comments: "I play this when we eat out. I like to be 'X' because that is part of my name. It's O.K., but I don't like it as much as other games."

Here is a game that gets a lot of table time in our house. I still enjoy playing it (or should I say, getting beat at it) and Lady X really likes it. This game really helped her learned her numbers and helped with her dice reading skills.

Lady X's Comments: "I like the pictures on the board. When kids are bad, they go down a snake. When they are good, they go up a ladder. My favorite color is red and my Dad is always green."

Arg... I hate this game. I hate the song. I hate everything about that damn bus. Unfortunately, the kids love the game and Lady X will still ask to play it once in a while. She had this game mastered by age 3.

Lady X's Comments: "I like playing with the bus. It plays a neat song. I am good at remembering where the pieces I need are. My sister loves this game."

This was a plesant surprise that Lady X got for her 5th birthday. I had always taken a poor view of "junior" games, but this one kept the spirit of the grown-up game. Lady X is almost to the point where she can play by herself, but she needs her Mom's help with the deductions still.

Yes, her Mom's help... because if I helped her, she couldn't beat me.

Lady X's Comments: "This is a fun game. I like moving the pieces and looking under them. I hope when I get bigger, I can play the older version."

Ugh. This was one of those games you had to play with your kids because they knew the song. At age 4, Lady X had this game down pat, but she didn't find it as fun as other games we owned. Still, she likes to play it with her younger sister, which means I can be a spectator.

Lady X's Comments: "The sheep is fun to move around the board. I like singing the song, but the game can get boring sometimes. I like to beat my sister at this game."

Lady X has recently begun requesting this game a lot. I think she really likes the puzzle aspect of the game and she encourages Princess S to plat with us. I like playing this one with her because I have a better chance at winning as compared to other games.

Lady X's Comments: "This game is fun because you have to match the pieces right. I like getting bonus pieces and fishing is my favorite scoring way. Dad gets close to beating me sometimes, but I usually win."

We found this at my parent's house and I took it back to our home. All my girls are in love with Jem and we barely stepped in the door before we had this game setup.

Lady X's Comments: "I like Jem. I wish I could be her for Halloween or something. The game is cool because you have these two cards. One is Rio and the other is Jem and Jerrica. You have to see which one Rio wants to kiss. Getting the hearts is a lot of fun and I am good at guessing the songs on the tape."

Another game I found at my parents that I reclaimed. Lady X and Princess S love this game. They also love double teaming me. Princess S is really good at this game, but Lady X has the cut throat approach that makes her the victor more times than not.

Lady X's Comments: "This game is neat because I am an Indian and it is about Indians. I like making my Dad lose and my sister is easy to trick into making her find Dad's men. The teepees are fun to play with and we can play a bunch of games really quick."

Lady X usually pulls this game out to start or end some of our more recent gaming sessions. She likes it and she's getting smarter about what questions to ask. I'm thinking that in another year or two, she'll move beyond this one.

For now, she'll smile as she asks a question and then slams down 3/4s of her people because of my response to her question.

Lady X's Comments: "This game is fun, but you keep asking the same questions. I wouldn't play this a lot, but I still like to play one or two games. We only have the normal versions, but I would like to play some of the special versions."
