Board Game Blast

I love playing board games, even more since Jason's entered my life. I've always loved the more party atmosphere games like Pictionary, Scattergories, Taboo, and my new fav Apples to Apples. I now also like the more thinking games with real strategy behind them, games like Tara and Carcassonne. Jason and I are now in the habit of buying a new strategy game every year we go to the Renaissance Fair at their game tent. It's fun cause you can try out all the games while there and the attendants will teach you the games. We've always hoped to find friends who also enjoy strategy games, so we can finally play with more than two players. Game night will happen or at least that's what we keep telling ourselves. I also love the games I grew up with, such as Clue and Life. Those were great and probably still are, that's the great thing about games- they stay fun throughout the ages.


  1. Kate! Eric and I LOVE these games...well, not these in particular because we've never played them, but we've looked at buying Carcassonne...We really like Settlers of Catan (and all the add ons), and we don't have that many people to play with since not many people like these types of games. Eric is way better at them than myself, but they're fun. We should all get together for dinner and a game :)

  2. How funny, I can't believe you two are into these games! That's awesome. Yes, we will have to plan a get together. Jason is much better at them than me, I usually end up losing every time, but I did kick this butt at Tara the other day. :) I'll be in touch.

  3. James and I are always, always ready to play games. So, if you need some additional game players ... you just give us a ring. :)
