I thought I'd take a break from "Dreamin" and talk real life.
Playing Battleship with my brother on the parquet floor sipping Koolaid is a favorite childhood memory. Clue, Life, Candy Land, and Connect Four kept us busy for hours on cold winter evenings. Anything but Monopoly.
The love of games has followed me into adulthood. Our kids love playing too. At least once a week we have family game night. No tv. No phones. No electronics. Just laughter and family time. This is the stuff they'll remember forever.
A few weeks ago, my brother came for a visit. With a big grin he said, "guess what I found in Mom and Dad's game closet .... Masterpiece!" I had forgotten one of our childhood favorites!
Did you play Clue as a child? My kids have the newer version, but I prefer the 1972 version. I hear there's a newer kid-friendly version, but hey, what's the fun in a good murder-mystery when there's no murder??
Speaking of original versions, this may be my all-time favorite game:
So, I want to know...
1. What was your favorite childhood game?
2. What is your current favorite game?
