Cadoo. love Cadoo.
today's feature: Baryonyx. of course I know!
2d Nim, with Madd.
I went downstairs today, thinking that I wanted to bring up some new games to put within our view.
I saw Mastermind, which heretofore has been up high and out-of-sight in the Rumpus Room, just waiting for Someday. (Eric and I played games pre-children-- we had like ten years : ) )
I brought it upstairs and told Trev that I had a game that I wanted to show him....
I wasn't really sure what would happen, especially since Trev has a bit of a cold.
I mean - would he stare at me blankly while giving a hard, sound, [sniff]? Would I get impatient?
How does one explain supposition and Think?
It's actually a great day for me to introduce such a thing (game), as I'm not short on patience today. :)
As it turned out...
He did just fine.
He did just fine!!
We got to the tenth line, and he had all of the colors correct, and two positions wrong.
So I took out his last guess, and walked him back through some of his other guesses.
I was perfectly willing to help him suppose his way through the game, as this was the very first time he's played or seen it. But we didn't ruin the process while playing, if you see what I mean.
Othello was next.
It's been a while since we've played it.
Another one that has lived up on the Adult shelf, though we've played it before. I'm thinking it's got a permanent place easily-at-hand, now.
Trev won, by the way. If it matters.
geodice again. :)
Madd and I headed out to Neverland - the one over there on the green, green grass - with her barn, farm folk, animals, playmobile garden people, homemade fences out of popsicle sticks, my little ponies, et al.... for an hour or so of Imagination.
an hour well spent, to be sure.
supper is on.
and let me just say that That was Me, even though ddh (Mr. Chef) is home.
okay, fine! truthfully-- he's sick.
I'm tellin' you. Games.
words of the day from the babes : enzymes. typical. exemplary.
good grief. I'm tired.
I'll just wave this flag, then, and roll on over to my book.
looking forward to tomorrow,
see you then, maybe.
