09:14 pm: Playing Games With Parents

Juss loves board games. No one else in the family does. But recently, he's been learning the secret that if you pick games your parents like, they might play.

He already has an offer from Daddy that Daddy will play chess any time Juss asks, unless he's writing.

But now he discovered Mommy's weakness, too…Master Mind. I LOVE Master Mind. Unlike nearly every other game, which I really could do without, I find this one absolutely delightful.

Juss is onto me.

MasterMind isn't a board game: it's a pencil & paper logic exercise pretending to be a board game.

My problem with it is finding participants who don't offer mistaken trial evaluations.

My friends from calc class and I played it in the Computer/Math lab all during Senior Class trip week. I still have my mini travel set in the living room.

Glad you and the boy can share in something from which you both derive joy.

When I was in college, I was really good at it. I had a system for winning in a really small number of moves...I can only kind of remember it now. But its still great fun.

I have a closet full of board games (and other types) but no one to play with. :(
