Sometimes when we are bored...

...we play this.

Hubby, along with being a fuzzy's grub pusher, is the keenest board-game player on the planet! As soon as we have anything resembling a group at our flat, he's the first to bring up the possibility of playing a game. Luckily, our lovely flatties are very obliging to hubbie's passion and will quite often play with us.

We currently have two games that are doing the rounds, 'Settlers of Catan' and 'Carcassonne'. These are two strategy games of building roads and houses, where if you gain more points than your opponents - you win!

Unfortunately, in all of his exuberance, Hubbie usually wins. There is the odd occasion where someone else wins and it results in a highly energetic happy dance because we are so used to him winning all the time. T thinks this is a throwback to his childhood where he and his brothers would play all sorts of strategy games, like Risk and Democracy, with their dad.

Hubbie is actually going, tonight, to a pub in London where they play boardgames from 5pm till late every Wednesday. Needless to say, he is very excited to find some gamers who are more up to his speed!

Adam and Helane make us play "Ticket to Ride" when they come for dinner. Problem is, they bring a new version each time which has different rules, so just when you think you got it sorted, they change it.
We'll try to school up on Carcasonne before we come visit

You just have to make sure Adam and Helane aren't making the rules up! :) Yeah, brush up on Carcassonne...we need as many people to try and take Hubs off his throne.
