>Fun And Games Blogfest


 Today is Alex’s Fun and Games blogfest. If you don’t know Alex, take a minute and check out his blog. 
He reviews movies, keeps us updated on new technology, and is very supportive of his fellow bloggers.
We’re supposed to list our 3 favorite games and why. 
I, of course, bent the rules a little bit…….
 Oh my gosh, if you’ve never played this game, you really should check it out!
On the rare occasions that my family can get all together, we play this. 
It’s totally hilarious and it’s fun trying to figure out what’s really being said.
I imagine it would also be a fun drinking game, ;}
 Pictionary is another game we play when we’re all together.
It’s challenging and fun and sometimes, our talents are um, questionable.
We’re terribly competitive, which makes for lots of fierce hilarity.
A hint: you can go to Lowe’s and have shower board cut.
Makes for an awesome dry erase board for a fraction of the cost!
 Now, here’s where I bent the rules a little. 
Those are games I like to play with others.
Sometimes, though, I need to just de-stress. 
The only game I ever play on Facebook anymore is Country Life.
The crops never wither and die! And it’s pretty mindless, so…..
 I have a Nintendo DS Lite and these are some of the games I have to keep me sharp *wink*
or to just help get me out of my head when I need it…..

I love, love, love Mahjong!!!!
Honey bought me a PC disc with all sorts of variations of the game and it’s likely my favorite.
I also have it on my DS, but it times out on me, hee.
So, those are a few that I love. 
When I was little, we played I Spy and Punch Buggy. Owww!
Wanna share your favorites?
TicTac Toe? Hangman? Global Thermonuclear War?

About CuriousCat

I love to learn new things-anything from how to create a junk journal to the way light moves through space; why cats present their behinds to us to the effects of chemicals on our endocrine system. If it interests me, I can spend hours reading and learning about it.
