Let’s Talk Board Games!

While have been standing here making  hamburger gravy and homemade rolls for dinner trying to come up with a blog topic that would be interesting and a conversation starter. Lets hope I picked a good one.

….Drum roll please…. Board Games! 🙂

I have always loved a good board game. When I was little the options were limited due to location and money. We had quite a few we made up on our own. I think I even created a board game at one point. Obviously it wasnt that exciting because it didn’t stick around 🙂 I lived out in the woods so more of our winter games were “Catch the Chicken and sled down the hill with it.” Summer games were:

 “Lock the little sister (me) in the chicken coop.”

Yes that is me, and might I add thank you sis for the life long memory ❤

When we got older we played Monopoly, Life, Card games, Sorry (which I was a very sore loser at) Old Maid, Uno, and a few more that I can’t think of at the moment.

I have passed my love for the games I played when I was younger to them. It is cool to see the face lift so many games have gotten. A few of their games consist of:  Sorry Sliders, Connect 4 Spongebob, Hi Ho Cherrio, Chutes and Ladders, Candyland, Monopoly, Guess Who, Hungry Hippos, Checkers, and Peanut butter and Jelly.
