It’s no secret I love board games ~ in fact, I did an April A-Z on board games a few years ago, though I deleted those posts in my refresh. No great loss as I wasn’t happy with some. I had to scramble to find games with the correct starting letter and some I posted about I’d never played at all. I wouldn’t do that again; instead I’d use an adjective or another relevant word in order to stick with games I’m familiar with. Yes, I may do board games again for April A-Z, but not next time. I already have my 2023 theme and the April posts planned out. Yes, I realize that’s weird. Regardless, I have them. They aren’t written obviously because that would truly be bananas… I simply have a note for each day.
The game pictured is Ticket to Ride, one of my favorites. And it’s the European version too, which is super fun. I also have a quick New York TTR and guess what? Today (well, yesterday) at Target I found the quick San Francisco TTR version! This is the danger of shopping in the store instead of ordering through the app and going for curbside pickup. I never knew I needed SF TTR. But I have it now. Also, I bought a new purse, which I really did need. My old purse had one giant pocket and it was a struggle to find my keys every time I needed them. New purse has three pockets, not including the little zippy one. And it still has the fat, short shoulder straps like the old one-pocket purse, which are better for my neck/back. Very happy find.
Some of my other favorite board games are Splendor, Lanterns, and Chinese Checkers. My friends like Code Names a lot, so we play it frequently. I used to love Scrabble, but nowadays I’d rather play it alone on my phone, along with Wordscapes, which I recently downloaded. Those two are the only games I have on my phone currently. I recently bought my little granddaughter a board game with ice cream scoops and toppings to match up, and it’s very confusing because once you stack them on your plate you can no longer see some of the toppings, but she seems to have figured it out. So that’s all right then.
