It's Game Time.

I come from a family of very sore losers.
I inherited that competitive gene which makes being a sore loser so easy.
Since we all hate losing so much, Griffioen's don't play games very often.

Paul, on the other hand, comes from a family that LOVES games.
I don't know how he does it... but he doesn't get upset when he loses!
He just likes to play games for fun-- win or lose.

He has been working on me over the past year.
(With some progress, I might add).
Although I still hate losing, I'm getting to the point where I can accept that I had fun playing the game EVEN if I lose. It's tough stuff... but I'm getting better.

Lately, I have been on an absolute game kick.
We have played "Bohnanza" almost every night the past week or so.
It's a game centered around planting and harvesting beans.
Riveting, right?
It seriously is a lot of fun though.

I think Paul has grown tired of our nightly Bean game, so for our date tonight, we tried a new one.

Shadows over Camelot is unique because you play against the game-- not the other players.
It's an especially good game because you all win or lose together.
(no hard feelings!)
Apparently the game almost always wins though.
...At least it did tonight.
Maybe next time!


  1. Losing is for losers!!!! :-D

  2. I love games! Another game against the board is a game called Pandemic. I think you would especially like it being a nurse and all. The goal is to prevent disease outbreaks throughout the different countries and cure them. Here's the link to the game, it's been one of our favorites for the past year or so.

    1. I've heard Paul talk about Pandemic! We'll have to give it a shot... (pun intended).
