We are hosting 24 people in our home for Thanksgiving dinner, so needless to say I am in up to my neck getting things together. Right in the middle of all of the Thanksgiving preparation HiveGod turns to me and in his most loving, husbandly tone says, “I just wanted to get this on the schedule because I know how these things go and if I don’t get the momentum going now it just might not be possible.” He is being so obscure and measured in his words I already know exactly what he is about to say and I burst out laughing.

He looks at me as if he has been caught. “What?

“You want to have a game day on Thursday!”

“No, no not on Thanksgiving.” Now he looks at me like I am crazy. He waits, measuring my response. “Friday, the day after.”

Still laughing, I pause to catch my breath and think about what this request really means--HiveGod will be super motivated to make game day happen that means he will need to clean up after 24 diners. Before he has time to figure this out I reply, "Oh, sure. Why not? Let's do it."

You guys are great! We are doing some of the same thing, were going down to my parents and probably wont play anything the day of. None of us brave the Black Friday sales so that day is the start of gaming weekend with my parents . Any games planned yet? We'll be hitting:
Risk: Godstorm
Nexus Ops
Wings of War: The Dawn of World War II
Wings of War: Fire from the Sky

With some 3-13 Rummy thrown in as well.

I approve this message.

CABS is having their annual after turkey day game fest on Friday. Doors open at 10. Here's to hoping my wife might be up her first visit with me...if not, I might be able to get a game or two in with the family.

We live in a modest house, so to cram 24 Thanksgivers into the two rooms available (the entryway/TV room & the kitchen/sitting area) we're moving all the sittin'-type furniture into the TV room & setting up three tables (along with the bar) in the kitchen. It looks like a gamesday, so why not throw one?

I got enough Husband Points putting up the new window treatments to pull it off... that, and she's turned out to be a bona fide boardgame geek herself!*

*She wanted to go to BGG.Con, she just completed her first 12-hour game-a-thon (money quotes: "I don't see how you can play games all day." [fast forward 12 hours] "I can't wait to play games all day again!"), & the other day she elbowed me aside to get into the game store first to buy her own copy of Ubongo Extreme.

Those elbows hurt dont they? Its great to see the gamers blossom from 'Ok I'll play with you' to 'Lets play, come on, were going to play this one.'

We've hosted Black Friday gaming every year since we've been in San Antonio. I just don't have the energy to do it this year, though. :/

Have a great time!!

Our annual Black Friday game day has been preempted by a soccer tournament (our son's) this year AGAIN. cry I don't think we are going to ever play games regularly again until we get this kid off to college.

At least I like watching soccer, especially when my own kid is playing...

I don't think you get to call it annual anymore.

Just give that kid a car already!

Another vote for getting K a car. I'm betting that K votes yes too.

Really? Forgot to put a thimble on and pricked your thumb with your darning needle then?

Said something really nasty, like "Oh my stars"?

You manly man you.

My holiday preparations involved real manly things, like razor blades and carpet adhesive!

Sometimes it helps to have something relaxing on the TV in the background when you're doing stuff like that. Gilmore Girls, Men in Trees, whatever.

Maybe all this banter back and forth is keeping HiveGod from getting the third and final window done. Our neighbors will feel like they are right at the table with us if he doesn't finish. Alas, my neighbors may come over to help if they keep seeing HiveGod walk about our house in his jammies wow

I'm curious, but only if actual jammies are involved and not just the skivvies he calls jammies, what kind of jammies HiveGod wears. And I like typing the word jammies.

Jammies.

Well, come on over--everyone at Chit Chat is invited! You can stuff yourself silly with our fabulous turkey from the BBQ then crash out on all the comfy furniture that is now all packed into the front room to make room for the game/dining tables.

Jammies.


HiveGod doesn't wear skivvies as a general rule blush, but jammies he does adore. Why just last night he couldn't find his own jammies to lounge about in so he grabbed my blue flannel PJ pants with the French kitties on them. They were ridiculously short on him, a bit tight, and he complained there was no fly.
