I taught my mom (my kids' 77 year old grandma) how to play Caverna. She did just fine!

My grandmother taught me to play chess, and a lot of card games. She studied agriculture at university and farmed when she was younger - I would have loved the chance to teach her Agricola!

Favorite story: Playing Citadels with two of my older sisters and their spouses (and a couple others, 8 player game) and catching 2 consecutive people with the ballroom (and one other later on!) for not telling me 'Thanks, Your Majesty!'


Also, you white meat people are crazy but that's fine. More good stuff for me!

I taught my wife how to play Dominion does that count? She's a great-grandma. I think we need to get it out again and re-learn it...

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

1. I prefer Dominion over Agricola in every circumstance, except using one of those two games to fuel a fire to keep warm.

2. Yes, had a good time playing 5 different games

3. I ate pizza. Yum.

4. An Epic battle between Aunt Bubba and niece Ginger

The eerie war chant emanating from the morning fog set chills down every spine. "Lah, lah, la lah, lah, lah."

The first game of the day was a five player game of RoboRally. During said game my 11 year old daughter was able to push three robots off the board in a single turn. It was pretty funny/exciting.

I brought a bag full of games. I ended up playing Mystery Garden, What's Missing?, and No Peeking! with the young children. I swear, adults suck!

Pete (had brought some nice party games for the parents, but they were no fun)

We cooked rabbit and quail over the fire outside. Then played Flash Point: Fire Rescue, watched football and a movie.

I have taught nieces and nephews many games and would not hesitate to teach them Dominion (even when they were eight. One is still and is the gameriest of them all.)

All my grandmas are dead, you bastard.

Back in the day (80's and 90's) we would celebrate Thanksgiving with some friends and after the meal we would usually play some of the traditional games of that time. One memory was of a great game of Balderdash where the Dad of our friend was a king of making up definitions that seemed so real - we will never forget his "a naval term for . . . . ." series that he would sprinkle in. Good fun.
