Holiday pastime

B won

Whenever we get together with Michigan family these days, we play games after dinner. Usually a game of Catan, followed by a game of Bohnanza. Every once in a while we throw in some Card-Head (a common game with a altered name to make it kid-friendly).

We are an interesting mix of competitive women and relaxed non-competitive men (with the exception of B’s parents who seem to be the reverse). This time the Center Shacks beat down the rest. It’s ok, we will give them plenty more chances to not lose.
