What's Your Favorite Board Game?

I have two favorite board games: Scrabble and RummiKub. I like them because they are games filled with thinking. Daddy said to me, "Why do you like those games so much?" I said, "Because they work the brain, and they're fun." The types of games I like help reduce Alzheimer's and Dementia. I say this, but my Grandma played thinking games all the time, and still got Alzheimer's. I still can try, and keep my brain active.

I'm not good at Scrabble. In fact I loose almost every time to Daddy.

I still enjoy playing the game because it's a challenge.

Growing up I loved RummiKub. Have you ever played that?

Great Aunt Becky introduced us to the game. Great Grandma Kent loved to play it with us. I grew up playing with the leather case, and all. Fancy I know. Now I have a cheaper set, and it's just not the same. If you like playing cards, you'll love playing RummiKub. This is one game I'm great at. If you've never played, I wish I could teach you the strategies. I'm the Queen of putting the game in total disarray, and being able to put it back together again.

Travis and I taught Mica how to play RummiKub the other night. I should have helped Mica. I bet then he would have won. ;) Daddy was his right hand man. Daddy is great at Scrabble, but I can kick his butt in RummiKub.

Mica still needs help, but he's getting the game.

Where was Isaak? In bed. The little curious punk decided to have a bubble bath in the sink. We've told him before that he only needs 1 squirt of soap. Somehow my soap dispenser has to be filled up a lot! He filled the sink with enough soap to cover his whole body. I know we should be happy that he's at least washing his hands. We didn't get on him too hard. It was pretty close to his bedtime, so off to bed the little tike went. RummiKub is for ages 8 and up anyhow. If he were up, he'd help me with my hand.

What board games do you like?

I've never heard of RummiKub. Growing up I liked Clue, Life and Monopoly. These days we are more of a CandyLand & Chutes and Ladders family.

Scrabble is my favorite! I play words with friends a lot! We just played apples to apples on New Year's Eve and I thought that one was a blast too!

I would love to learn to play Rumikub from you! :) Unfortunately we don't get around to playing much boardgames now, but I like monopoly, game of life, cluedo, scrabble.. all the old school ones haha

Our friend introduced us to Zombicide. That was kinda fun too and very strategic.

I've never played Rummikub before but would be open to trying it someday. The games I really like to play are Boggle and Scattegories.

We played Spinmaster's Pop Pop Balloon game quite a bit over the holiday. Even the big kids loved that one. :)
