Snake is always a bit cautious when I bring out a die and tell him to roll it. Sunday morning I did and got back, “Why?”Continue reading “Seven”
Scrabble Game to Start 2023
It’s time to play a game… And guess what? It’s Snake’s favorite type of game.
[Snake, squeezing eyes shut: please don’t say scrabble, please don’t say scrabble, please don’t say scrabble…]
<the voice inserts “It isn’t his favorite type. He hates it in fact.>Continue reading “Scrabble Game to Start 2023”
1 is for 150
Yeah, I know. TECHNICALLY it’s not a “letter” thing for the Snake Den.
It’s ok. I’ll go with it.
So, there we are, just rousting out of bed on a Saturday morning. She rolls over, then rolls over again, now on top of me.
Grinning.Continue reading “1 is for 150”
The Fantasy Quota
“Here you go…” she says, handing me a dice. The 4-sided die rattles around in my hand. I was just sitting here passing the time on one of our favorite shows and she walks in and hands me this.
“What’s up,” I ask. Not knowing if I really want to know. The answer on gaming stuff like this is usually some strange setup that puts me at a, well, disadvantage, to put it lightly.Continue reading “The Fantasy Quota”
E is for Edgy
Snake wrote the other day about 100 edges. We had been doing a boot camp weekend which we do from time to time and he had been doing a really good job of anticipating and following directions.Continue reading “E is for Edgy”
S is for Scrabble
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a poll on Twitter asking about starting a new game. I asked if I should do another Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, CAH or a new game. While the poll results did appear to be tied at 35.3% for both a new one and Scrabble, they were skewed by a mistaken vote for Trivial Pursuit that I was asked to change.Continue reading “S is for Scrabble”
M is for Model
It’s been hot and most of the indoor recreation places haven’t been open this summer so we’ve been spending some time decluttering. Not much fun, but at least more productive than watching another cooking show.Continue reading “M is for Model”
G is for Games
Yes, I hinted at a new one arriving in the Snake Den. So while Snake is busy trying to figure out if it will be Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit or Cards Against Humanity….it will beContinue reading “G is for Games”
The crowd goes wild. Snake cringes and hopes that I will lose the handy bag of tiles that are stored in a brown paper wine bag from our trip to Sonoma a few years ago.Continue reading “Anniversary Scrabble”
Games Within Games
You’ve chosen to edge yourself for an extra Scrabble tile. Well, it’s only 10 and that really not all that challenging. So, what’s Charmer to do to make it more interesting?Continue reading “Games Within Games”
Did You Miss My Games?
It’s been a long month or so at the Snake Den. Family and traveling and colds and company has made it hard to have time to ourselves. And we do miss our play.Continue reading “Did You Miss My Games?”
2 Hours of Sexual Torture… that really was.
So, of course, Charmer won the game that was built around that inhumane cards…of game. I will never forgive everyone for simply picking incorrectly – I mean, would it have killed you to pick mine? Not a single person wrote to ask which one…
My penance – 2 hours of torture of her choosing.Continue reading “2 Hours of Sexual Torture… that really was.”
