New In Our Board Game Pile

I love playing board games.  For the last year or so I’ve been looking for board and card games that can be played by two players.  Spousemeister and I used to play board games like fiends.  Now, around Christmas/New Years and till the snow melts, it’s a good time to play.

We haven’t tried any but Dominion yet, but it was really cool, and I could see for the first time the appeal of a deck building game–I think it’s accurate to call it that.


Mysterium  Supposedly “Clue for Adults”

Quiddler   I love Word games.   My husband, who is the Math Guy around here likes Word games where he can drag out his unabridged dictionary to find fiendish words to defeat the enemy (me, the Word person).

Jaipur   Somehow you simulate a bazaar and mercantile trades.  Came up like mad for two players.

Kill Doctor Lucky   (I think my husband doesn’t appreciate this title much, but I love mysteries and it seems to have that element.)   “A family board game of cold-blooded murder!”  What’s not to like?

Sunday Comic: Mother’s Day

Today’s Comic Created with Toondoo

If you don’t know what to give mom for Mother’s Day, just sit down with her and play cards or a board game.  Play your old favorites.

Let your mom create a toon in your favorite game and set her loose in the world for a bit.  I guarantee she’ll like the character creation tools in most MMOs with all the style choices.

There is no better gift than time spent with you and time relaxing and playing.
