Monday mornings are busy. You’ve got work to do….I’ve got to pretend I’m cleaning the house or something.
So, in honor of Monday mornings, I am inventing the ‘Monday Mini’: A post that’s basically a glorified ‘Facebook post’ which takes me under 5 minutes to do and you under 5 seconds to read.
Today: The 3 Stages of Playing Boardgames with Cats.
Stage 1: Awareness
Stage 2: Obesession
Stage 3: Destruction
As a sidenote, the featured game today is Sorry! Fire & Ice, which my son received for his birthday and the kids have been playing a ‘haven’t read the rules’ version of for the past month. Yesterday we actually read the rules for the first time and I’m telling ya, this ain’t your momma’s Sorry! As a life-long classic Sorry! lover, I was surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did, but aside from both games having a ‘Start’ and a ‘Home’ area, they’re essentially completely different games. The most important difference is that new Sorry! Fire & Ice takes approximately 47 hours to finish one round.
Prepare yourself: Hydrate, bring snacks, and for the love of god, keep the cats out of the room.
