I'm sure most of you out there have PSOs (primary significant others) or even SSOs that don't know what to get you for Christmas.

After several years of marriage, I (slowly) realized that my wife simply will not be able to find the right gift for me. So every year, I get my own presents. She wraps them up and gives them to me on Christmas morning.

Please feel free to add the games that you gave to your PSO to give to you.

She is so thoughtful.

She and I spent several excruciate days working through the old PS2 stinker of a game "Tails of the Sun." In exchange for the pain of building a tower of digital mammoth tusks that touches the Sun, she decided to get me an analog version.

Wow, is my wife something else or what! Clearly she has been spending a great deal of time looking through the games I own and realized that I like dexterity games. Especially games that are not burdened by "rules and crap."

Boy, I just didn't expect this next gift at all. She is just amazing at finding just the right game for me.

Over the last couple of weeks, I guess she finally got all my subtle hints about wanting Tumbling Dice. Perhaps it was all the hours my daughters (5yro; 7months) and I spent flicking dice at the dog: body hits are x1, head hits are x2, tail hits are x3, and feet hits are x4 (of course).

Both daughters will enjoy playing this with Papa!

BTW, that's not me at the left, but it will be after Xmas!

Hmmm....

I'm not too sure what's she is trying to tell me by giving me this game. Perhaps she overheard my ramblings about a play I wanted to write. Or just maybe she realized that I didn't have this expansion yet.

Nope, clearly not. She definitely overheard my ramblings and mumblings. The King will show her!

My 5yro daughter and I have been playing a lot of Runebound lately because she enjoys having "a princess" defeating evil monsters as she wonders around the land. My guess is that my wife decided that was unhealthy and decided that a different game would be better.

This is different!?

I'm not too sure how she decided on this game. Perhaps she read a review or two that indicated it was a cool game.

On the other hand, I write patents for a living so maybe, just maybe she thought I would like playing a game about building something real as opposed to just ?making stuff up.?

Now we're talking!

Finally, after 8 years of marriage and countless games of MOO, MOOII, MOOIII, and GalCiv2 on the computer, she finally gets that I am a closet galactic emperor.

Nothings says Christmas like conquering a Galaxy!

Another puzzler from my wife.

Apparently, at least according to her, Fury of Dracula was sold out so she figured that I would enjoy this game instead.

Let's see:

Knights: Check.
Castles: Check.
Taking over a Kingdom: Check

Well, sounds good to me!

She clearly knows me very well! Thanks Babe!
