Started what I hope is a new event for the evenings. My wife likes few games but Travel Blokus (BGG link http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/16395) is one of the few that she will play. A simple 2-player game where each player has to lay down their pieces to claim territory. The only rule is that you can only lay down your pieces corner-to-corner; your edges cannot touch. The winner is the person who lays down the most pieces.
Tonight was a very close game, about 20 minutes long. She won 16-17. She commented it was a good, quick way to take our minds off the day. Worked very well playing one game after dinner with tea/coffee.
