Games are a very important part of the family, and this Christmas saw a strong gaming presence. Christmas day came in two parts (sections?) for the RMN family; a small early morning “bridge crew” and a later “full family” version.
G got a copy of Qwirkle, and we later played a game. Very fun! Tiles are six colors and six shapes, and you lay tiles down either by matching shapes or colors, or you can try to get a “qwirkle” where you lay down six tiles of the same shape but different colors or six tiles of different shapes but same color.
T got a chessboard. Simple, inexpensive, but very nice! An older classic game that still has great value.
Other games are Rush Hour (shown here) as well as Railroad Rush Hour , River Crossing Jr. and Crazy Campers (a puzzle game). There was also Treasure Quest. These solo games are actually a good group game with the kids since they encourage thinking and assistance to the younger ones. In this picture, I just got done showing JH (on the left) how to play, and now his older brother, DH (right) is helping him get set for the next challenge!
All in all a very “gameful” Christmas.
