So today at dinner, my two kids and my wife, all three of them, insist that I buy Dominant Species and that we play it.

I'm like, well, OK, I didn't think you'd like it, but if you really want it...

Then later, while I'm showing my wife the Anniversary Edition of War of the Ring, my daughter inists that we play it tomorrow.

I'm like, well, I have to put away the Christmas stuff; we're going out to dinner with Mom-mom for her birthday...

She makes me promise to get up a little earlier, so we can play.

What the hell is going on? Since when is my family more interested in long games than I am?

Cool. Maybe they'll soon be requesting Advanced Squad Leader and A World at War!

It wasn't up, it was packed but waiting to be put in the attic. It's in the attic now.

Well, I wouldn't be interested in playing those games. But when they request Advanced Civilization I'll have to start checking if it's April 1st.

maybe its a trap. they suggest you buy games, they play games with you. then 2 months from now they spring a super expensive family vacation on you with the "but you bought all those games, and we spent all that time playing with you, can't you do this one thing for us?"

If this happened to me I'd immediately be suspect!

Maybe they've realized that this is a fun-for-everyone way that they can spend more time with you, and it's a proverbial "gift horse"?
