Gaming With Kids
Tabletop gaming has become a major thing these days. Recently, we took an inventory of the tabletop games in our house and discovered we have over 150. We’ve acquired at least ten more games since then.
We’ve also purchased expansion packs for games we already have but I’m not going to count those because they aren’t new games.
Number of games we’ve gotten rid of in the same amount of time: zero.
As you can see, we have something of a problem. We are quite literally running out of shelves to put all the games.
The obvious solution is to attempt to play every game in our house at least once.
I know what you are thinking and no, the solution is not to dispose of the games that we’ve owned for over ten years and never played once. That would be allowing the game to win.
There are two wrinkles in this plan. The first is probably obvious – when we like a game, we want to play it more than once. I, for instance, could spend an entire weekend playing “Legendary” and still want to play it again.
Because the rest of my family does not feel the same way I am, I think rightly, considering having them replaced.
