What are you doing!? I don't even know you!

My older daughter (3) recently learned to use a computer mouse. It took her no time at all to figure out how to find music and photo and video files on my computer. She usually doesn't mess up anything, so I am happy to see her learning.

However, when I am on bgg and she is in the room, she often comes to me and wants to click on those "green gloves". So if you write something truly irrelevant or offending and still are thumbed by me, it might have been my daughter.

This is just an elaborate excuse for thumbing your own posts, isn't it?

Why apologize for some thumbs?

If she is happy thumbing some random posts, so should you and you shouldn't apologize for that.

As I understand it, it's easier to just post in one of the bot threads. gulp

Candyland oddly is completely unknown in Germany, certainly not one of our classics. I hadn't even heard of it before I found boardgamegeek (and I guess I had played around 1000 different games until then). It has been the subject of many jokes here (some by me), but honestly, I haven't got a clue what the game is about.

It's about 15 minutes too long, which is odd because it only takes 10 minutes to play -- yet still somehow contains 15 minutes of suck.

I'm sure there's people out there that don't know what dysentary is, should we send them some?

I'm sure you were probably joking, but still...

Umh. I would rather playtest Candyland than dysentery... but thanks for the offer.

(In fact, I playtested dysentery in India 15 years ago. I rate it a "1" after only one play.)
