Game Time!

We were fortunate enough to be able to avoid traveling for the holidays, which meant lots of time to play games old and new. N. doesn't initiate playing a lot of board and card games during our regular life, but the holidays have become associated with games, in part since he receives new games as gifts. So the past couple weeks we've been playing epic, multi-day bouts of Monopoly, as well as Yahtzee, Uno, Rush Hour, Battleship, and Parcheesi. I enjoy seeing how much better he is at the math and logic required for some of these games than he was a year ago. And N. had a great time playing games with his grandparents. It's fun to have moved beyond Candyland into the realm of games we can all enjoy.

We love games here. We've become big fans of Settlers of Catan, which is fun and slightly addictive. Monopoly and Clue are also big favorites here.

Hey, that was my comment! We also love games, and I was going to recommend Settlers of Catan! We love Agricola too.
