30 Games in 30 Days – Week Four
Originally we set out to play a different game every day in the month of September. In Week Three we ended up skipping a day.. or maybe two…? And then after ToonCon I think we were pretty much gamed out and gave up on the challenge.
On Monday the kids and I slept in and… I don’t even remember what happened the rest of the day…?
Tuesday I got the kitds Education Plans done for the year and posted blogs about Week Three and ToonCon and REGINA TRENCH: the Game! and REGINA TRENCH: the Terrain!
At one point I took a break and found the kids actually playing Sentinel Tactics - a game we picked up in the ToonCon Game Auction. They didn’t even invite me to play… Figured out the rules on their own, set it up, played a few games…
One Wednesday we tried out another game I picked up in the ToonCon Game Auction - Star Trek: Five Year Mission. I like it. It's challenging - and it's co-operative and pretty easy. It'd be a good gateway game for trekkies. I might even try it with my dad some time.
All week I was fighting off a bug I think I picked up on the weekend – had a scratchy throat Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday. By Thursday it was a full-on cold. We didn’t play any games on Thursday. I mostly lay in bed and sniffled and coughed.
Friday I dragged my ass out of bed long enough to have another game of Star Trek: Five Year Mission - this time with Amanda. I totally forgot to take a picture.
And that was September. In the end we totally played over 30 different games… we just missed playing games on a few days… So while we technically didn't succeed in the "Challenge", It'd still it a success!
The Men Who Would Be Kings arrived on Monday (or maybe Tuesday...? It's all a bit of a blur...) – which I was totally thankful for – arriving Monday, that is… not last week - because it would have totally distracted me! I’m really, REALLY looking forward to trying it out soon-ish! Might even use them for Great War in Africa - or possibly modifying it to use for the Vimy Project...?
