That probably explains a lot of things.

As an aside, my mom's step-dad had his brain turn to mush in the last few years of his life.  One of the interesting aspects to this was that he went from thinking that Tiger Woods was the greatest golfer ever (and loving to watch him golf) to despising Tiger Woods after his brain went to seed.

He went to his grave harboring a  ^w^ - sized hatred of Tiger Woods, but only after senility took its toll.  Just a word of caution for you...
Are you saying that in a couple of years  ^w^'s going to love Peyton Manning, and he's going to be buried in a blue and white #18 jersey?

You mean I'm gonna like Eldrick, Peyton and The Fucktard?

If it happens, let me walk in front of a bus, OK?

The little one has been grumbling that the new board games aren't exactly accessible to the average 6-year-old, and has made it her Christmas mission to lobby for more Helen-friendly games.  Towards that end, Santa will be bringing:

Lost Cities

Rat-a-tat-cat

Loot

Rivers, Roads and Rails worked for us at that age and I am a firm believer that even if they don't actually play the game as designed, Boggle is great for "making words"

Gave Rat-a-tat-cat a test run yesterday afternoon.  Helen eschewed the easier version intended for little kids, which pleased me no end.  She also showed a great deal of patience when it came to building her hand.  The same cannot be said for her mother, whose aggressive play blew up in her face in the final round...

The real fun should come tomorrow as we put Berb (no renowned for his memory or counting skillz) through his paces...

Thanks, I discovered the site from your earlier post but hadn;t seen this list
I find myself spending an alarming amount of time over at that site...so many board games, so little time (made all the more painful by the fact that I played three games of Candyland yesterday)

I have been considering getting Jaipur and would be interested in knowing how you like it
The reviews were very good and we liked that it was made for 2 players.  Fun again games also ships from Oregon so I'm hoping to get them soon living in Northern California.  I also discovered and am excited to check out the next time I am in SF:

I got the Seinfeld edition of Monopoly for Christmas.  Have yet to open it.  Kids may not get it, so we are sticking with Guess Who Extra and Sorry Sliders for now.
