Despite the strong chinook arch in the southwest sky, and the rising mercury, no foot was set outside the doors of Casa del Zombie. The dining room table was commandeered into board game central. I went low-tech with the annual board game purchase this year, sticking to the tried and true Parcheesi, which I was stunned to learned neither the Spousal Unit nor the Resident Offspring had ever played before.
Why, I was practically raised on that game! Parcheesi and Monopoly are where I gained all my Machiavellian prowess.
We played so many games of Parcheesi that by the time we switched to Crokinole, we could no longer keep the direction of play straight in our heads. Wine consumption, I am sure, had no bearing upon this.
Do you have favourite games to play at Christmas time?
