I love learning new things- and it seems that recently that focus has been on board games. I should be studying to get certifed, but instead most of my time is being spent on learning different games and strategies.
Tonight, we are in the midst of playing rounds of Settlers of Catan. I have never ever used the words sheep, ore, clay, wheat, and wood as much as I am right now. In fact, I particularly hate sheep right now because that’s all that I’m seemingly getting- and being made fun of for my luck.
Getting to 10 points through a combination of building settlments and cities has never been harder. It is a mix of strategy and making deals (it doesn’t go hand in hand with writing a blog post).
Like I said previously, at a certain age, we tend to forget how enjoyable board games are. But at the rate things are going, I better stock up on them because they are such a great change of pace and a great way to bring people together.
