It occurred to me that my wife describes games to me in funny ways sometimes. I started writing them down.

1. "The worm game."
2. "The game with Jenny."
3. "The train game."
4. "The bean game."
5. "The one with the love shack."
6. "The game with the money. And the pink cards and the red cards."
7. "That game where you buy things and make your house pretty."
8. "The garbage game."

Name them, no cheating, and I'll toss a few if you can get them all.

Edit: forgot one, so bonus question #8!

1 for 1.

Perhaps I should make everyone name all 7 and then I give a number correct. Mastermind-style. Or maybe not. Feel free to help each other out regardless, some of these strained my brain and I had the knowledge of having played the games together.

I wrote them down somewhere, you could probably find them if you looked too hard.

You can dwell on the sh*t, or you can just leave it behind in people's beds & keep going.

Some good guesses at #1, but not there yet. #6 had me puzzled for awhile and caused me to start writing all these down and turn it into a game.

But listen again. Is it really the wind, or is it the sound of somebody running one step ahead of the dark?
