My wife reluctantly agreed to give me 30 minutes to show her Cuba Libre. She was playing 26 July and the Directorio, I the other factions. I set the timer for 30 minutes. Within that timeframe she began to grasp the mechanics and strategy of the game. The buzzer went off. To my amazement, she said let's continue playing! Eventually, the propaganda card arrived. She then expressed desire to continue playing! The conclusion: at the second propaganda card she won as the Directorio. We spent 2.5 hours playing. Miracles happen!

It's a fun game. Honestly, I had my arms crossed too, expecting to hate it, but it won me over.

Great work that man!!!

I have regularly tried the same with my wife and yet to no avail - yet...

I simply await a more positive moment when I can see the 'perfect storm' of happiness, willingness and the sense that she 'owes me one' for something or other that I can 'cash in'... ninja

I know that any kind of masculine-credibility I may have accrued will be dashed with the following statement:

I kinda like going shopping with my wife!!! blush

The HARD STUFF is cleaning the bathroom and hovering the floor - now that gets me in the good-books for a llloonnnngggg time.... cool

It seems that my displeasure in doing a task directly links to the level my wife is impressed with my endeavours.

A COIN game would cost me a Full House Deep Clean!!!!
