The old man and I used to play chess a lot, BC, i taught him how to play on one of our first dates (I know exciting, right?!) and he became quite
good. We've really no time anymore.
We always take yahtzee camping or to the beach with us in case of bad weather.
My parents helped my children learn to count and such using a game called Skip Bo which is a simple card game if you've never heard of it.
Back in the "partying" years my friends and I would sit for hours playing Spades.
My parents, extended family, and friends used to play a game called Wahoo...My Dad crafted the wooden board it was played on. It's a marble game
similar to Parchisi. I have, ironically, inherited three of the boards Dad made even though none of us play anymore.
My Mom LOVED this game and was a fierce competitor. As she aged and her mind was leaving she was unable to count and move her marbles correctly around
the board. My girls would come to me and say "are we supposed to be correcting her if she's sort of...cheating?"
Winning isn't the point, Grandma's on her throne as Queen Wahoo Champion of the Region! Enjoy her!
