TOD:

The earliest card game I remember is a game called Authors, which was a variation of fish.   I play solitaire on the computer all the time.  During the summer, our family used to play Canasta, though I've forgotten how to play it.

Probably the earliest board game I ever played was Candyland.   The one I play most often today is Scrabble.  I still like  Trivial Pursuit but all the various earlier editions and variations.  I imagine they now have editions with questions about Justin Bieber and such ilk, that I would no doubt be terrible at.   Another game I like is Wise and Otherwise, which is a board game variation of the old Dictionary game, in which everyone writes the second half of a wise saying and folks have to guess which is the real one.    I also like Yahtzee and Boggle (which I play as a solitaire game).  There was a period where I played some war simulation games like Gettysburg and Kingmaker, which was about the War of the Roses.

In other news...

The couple next to me order a carafe of Malbec for their pre-flight breakfast.
I think I know them.

Update: The wife was getting worried that they would miss the boarding call for their flight so they got the wine to go... In lidded paper coffee cups.

Favorite Board Game: Trivial Pursuit.

I've never been much of a card player.

TOD:

As a kid we most often played Monopoly, Chinese Checkers, Battleship, Aggravation and Parchesi...we being myself and my cousins. I don't recall my parents ever playing board games.

I enjoy card games but I am absolutely terrible at remembering the rules.

Whenever my little grand-nephew Cole visits he insists on playing the Gumby 3-D  board game. Actually he just likes setting it up...lots of cardboard buildings, trees, forts, etc.

Great pictures DR ELMORE.

Buy some nice folding chairs MR BK.  Try them out if you can and don't get the kind that can pinch your fingers when you open and close them.....otherwise....you ALWAYS will.

TOD:

Monopoly - which always took TOO long to play, I usually lost interest toward the end of the game.

Also:  Life, Sorry, Careers, and Risk. 

Card games:  Euchre is the one I am best at......others not so much.

TOD - Go to the Head of the Class, Careers, and Barbie: Queen of the Prom.  I still have them on the top shelf of one of my Momcave bookcases.  When Rob was going through stuff in his old room over the weekend, he took his Monopoly, Battleship, and Chess and Mary Linda said, "Oh, we can use those with our friends!"

As for cards, one of my fondest pre-college memories is playing cards on the screened porch that my dad and brother-in-law built onto our house in Detroit.  The house was not air conditioned, so my parents and I would sit up at night until our bedrooms were cool enough for sleeping.  Our game of choice was a rummy called Liverpool.  My grandmother and I played endless games of Canasta and, when I was in college, my parents taught me a game called Spite 'n' Malice. 

Being married for almost 32 years to someone who's not a card-player, I've forgotten the ins and outs of those games.  I do now enjoy playing Words with Friends (scrabble) on my phone with friends all over the country and I just made the mistake of installing a Solitaire app.  Might have to remove that one - it's too addictive and drains the battery!

My school is driving me crazy. It canceled my registration for the fall semester for no reason and no one is available to try to help straighten it out.
