I watch it with my kid, LOL
Eh, this is a comic strip world thing. Just a little suspension of reality.
The absolute worst board game I ever played was “Dune.” We literally spent an entire evening going over all the rules. Next time we got together? Rules refresher and setting up the board. Over an hour later we got to play! The game went on for something like 8 hours, people were falling asleep at the table. We ended it over the game owners objections. He insisted we play again the next time we got together and we fools agreed… only to have someone win in the very first round due to an unpredictable confluence of events. The only game I find more objectionable than “Dune” is “Fluxx,” but I was taught how to play “Fluxx” by a jerk who decided he didn’t like me for some reason so it might just be bad associations, IDK.
Ahhhhh yeah. Snapping me right back to high school where part of the “oh no I’m sick and I’m on this evening!” remedy was altoids to clear out the sinuses.
If you’re ever in Chicago Dan’s welcome to play nerdy board games with us. I have FEELINGS about Uno and it’s the one game I won’t play with my kid.
Oof. I was NOT permitted to watch this show.
Man, buried up to their necks.
I live in Chicago and our building has a “front yard” that’s roughly the size of a parking space. Our streets are all tree-lined and there’s a lot of parks within walking distance. But compared to the suburbs? Those green manicured chemical saturated lawns stretching as far as the eye can see? It’s so vastly different. And private pools? So very tempting. But dang I love the city.
Friends north of us have been absolutely dumped on with snow and I’m glad we’re not dealing with that but still. It’s been mostly in the mid 30s for the past two months.
We have yet to get snot freezing weather here in Chicago. Instead it’s mid-January and I’m walking around in a light jacket. I hate it.
