I made some time to sit down with my 9 year old daughter today and try out some new games with her. It's a couple of weeks into summer vacation and she's already getting the shakes from being out of school.

We started with TransEuropa, and Hailey caught on to this one very quickly. We didn't use the Vexation expansion, which I think adds quite a bit to the game, but we had a nice time anyway.

Round 1: Hailey wins - Jeff takes 5 points
Round 2: Jeff wins - Hailey takes 4 points
Round 3: Jeff wins - Hailey takes 5 points
Round 4: Jeff wins - Hailey takes 4 points

I really should order TransAmerica just so that she can practice her state geography for fifth grade.

This was new to me as well, but both Hailey and I loved it!

First game: Jeff 14 - Hailey 18 (I had a bit of trouble with the cat in this one. That cat can really start to move once it goes to two spaced a roll.)

Second game: Jeff 19 - Hailey 12 (I got some great rolls and made it into the cheese paradise fairly quickly.)

Another new game for the both of us. I was quite happy with this weird little cardgame. The scoring mechanism allows for this great press your luck component. Going for larger words is a one-way ticket to the looney bin.

Final score: Jeff 90 with 1 Cthulu dude left
Hailey 102 with 2 Cthulu dudes left.

Words used:

ran, keen, pen, pat, ebb, zone, yay, tea, wax, toast, hit, saw, lid, hush, rim, glory, dog, form, and alas.
