and I were teaching my mother The Gallerist. She's pretty chuffed that we both have artwork in it, and was eager to try it, even though it's a pretty weighty game.
She got right into it. Towards the endgame she was pushing her pawn around, refusing to go anywhere she'd give us a kick-out action.
"I'm going to the International Market!" she said
"You can't go there, " Rob said reasonably. " You don't have anything in your gallery. You've got a bunch of people walking around looking at your blank walls!" (by this stage only the top section had anything left empty)
"And calling it Art." I added.
This struck us all as extremely funny so I thought I'd share it with you.
In the end, she beat the pants off us both. I'm so proud, she's over 70 and not much into boardgames.
