Last friday I took my family on a 5 day camping trip to Diefenbaker Lake where I am also working on my sister and her husband's log house. I already had the camper there to stay in while I work but this time the plan was to have fun in the water, relax, and play a few games. I kinda outdid myself this time for the amount of games I took along. blush

Already in the camper where:

Backgammon
Cards
Mastermind
Cribbage
Dice
Yahtze

Then, in two cardboard boxes, I took:

Ticket to Ride
Puerto Rico
Stone Age
Hacienda
Vikings
Beowulf: the Movie Boardgame
Blue Moon City
Hey! That's My Fish!
Bohnanza
Black Sheep
Cartagena
Battle Line
Tally Ho!
Caribbean
Jambo
Fairy Tale
Lost Cities

Of the 17 that where taken along only 6 never saw play. However some saw multiple plays and one that was in the camper was played 3 times.

Here is what saw play:

This was the first to be played. My 16 year old and I have played Kingdoms around 30 times and since last Christmas have gotten into this one. We love playing it together as a 2 player game and have our own way of playing (cutthroat that is!)

It got played 2 more times for a total of 3 plays there.

I was so happy to play this one! I've been waiting for ages and the same daughter has been feeling a little game deprived her own-self so she played it with me.

The nest day My 16 year old played Vikings with me after a rousing game of Beowulf: THe Movie Boardgame.

Afterward we went for a swim although it was quite windy. The waves were a lot of fun!

My 18 year old hadn't played a game in a long time so it was a real treat to sit and play Hacienda with her. After I took a picture of her pet caterpillar, Heimlich. Good thing I did cuz the following day he buried himself in his dirt and "cacooned."

The first of three games of Bohnanza was played with a Coleman lamp on the picnic table beside a campfire with 3 daughters and our family friend, Mark, who was still working on the log house during the day but joined us for this game in the evening. We all like "Beans."

My youngest and oldest daughter wanted to play this and really enjoyed it. In fact they enjoyed it so much they talked my wife and my second oldest daughter into playing and we played again over the nest couple of days for a total of 3 times.

By this time the girls almost had our friend, the 13 striped gopher easting out of their hands.

My 16 year old liked this game so much for a spell and then for at least a year she just refused to play although I have been begging for months. But she finally played! Yayyyy!

So, in a little less than 5 days I managed to play 19 games and have a lot of other fun. Although I could have played more, I was pleased!

Here's to camping! I'm glad you and your family had such a fun time. I went only for a day and a half last week, took 3 games, and only played Farkel. However, it was the first time I had busted it out (got it as a gift), and we had a BLAST! Camping + Friends + PBR + Farkel + Cubs on the Radio = Good time.

Good Gaming~! Mick
