Spent the afternoon playing games and specifically, Settlers of Catan. First of all, I wasn't sure I'd even like this game. At first glance, with its gazillion pieces and medieval-Grapes of Wrath type artwork, it didn't look like my type of game. In the end, it was great. I really enjoyed it.
But that's not my sunshine.
There are goods you have to acquire in the game in order to purchase cities and roads -- which ultimately gain you points to win the game. You can acquire: Wheat, Wood, Sheep, Brick and Ore. (see...doesn't sound overly exciting)
Wood became quite the commodity during the game and everyone seemed to need it.
"Ok, I really need some wood."
"If Aaron would just give up his wood, then I could win."
"Alright, if you give me some wood, I'll give you some sheep."
"No...Charlie gets wood."
I giggled almost every time. It never got old.
