    Phase 10 and Triominoes. 2 sets can be combined for more than 4 people. Mark the duplicate sets before combining or you’ll have a harder time separating them than you have separating yourself from those balls of fluff!

    “A dweam wiffin a dweam. . . . Tweasure your wuv, fohever.” Classic! I too am glad to know the correct spelling and pronunciation of fwuffeh. Thank you! If you love Cards Against Humanity, you’ll love Redneck Life. At one point, my niece had 15 children (the state took them away), 13 of them were named Darryl. The winner of the game is the player who has the most teeth left in their head.

    Love kitten cuteness!
    Please do not ban me for this, but Exploding Kittens is a great game, my 10 year old loves it, so its older kid appropriate – ish. 🙂 Trust me NO kittens are harmed in the game and its very fun although quite confusing and allows for lots of cheating and accusations of the same if your family plays games anything like ours. 🙂

      I love Exploding Kittens. I recommend Sushi Go.

    Mensa rates games once a year, you might want to check out their recommendations. Also, would you please show us photos from different areas of your lovely house, so we can watch the progress? Thanks!

    The kittens are adorable!!
    We are a game family! We LOVE Exploding Kittens (no kittens are actually harmed during play), Monopoly card game (MUCH more fun than Monopoly!) Things, and Snorta (found at a tag sale and is out of print, but can be found on ebay) – which is a very loud, laugh inducing game of animal sounds!!
    Have fun!

    Target has a new game called “Bucket of Doom,” also not safe for kiddos…we made it so by removing about a third of the cards.

    We also like Rook, which is family friendly.

    Kittehs!! So cute 🙂

    LOVE the kittens! Wish I had seen our two black kitties when they were babies. They “arrived” at our garden at around 6 months old. Your writing makes me smile

    My family loves Gestures. Your kitten photos made my fingers itch……..not from any allergy but from a serious need to get into some baby kitten fur.

    More board type games than card games (we usually play hearts, gin, or spades with cards): Settlers of Catan and Revolution.

    Love the kitten posts. The black and white one is my fave. And thanks for the book recommendations, they all sound like books that would really appeal to me. Thanks for bringing a touch of class, elegance and craziness to my life! Please keep posting.

    Ticket to Ride is fun, and friendly for all ages. There is a North America version as well as Europe and maybe another one or two. We have the North America version and really like it. Doesn’t take FOREVER to learn, either (looking at YOU Settlers of Catan!!!!!)

    Any way you could get a copy of “Evicted” to Ben Carson, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell? Pretty sure they believe people are only poor because they are lazy. Ok, off my high horse….We LOVE Balderdash! I recommend Twister ($11.88 @ Walmart). Nothing funnier than seeing a bunch of out of shape, overweight adults (oops, that’s my family) twisting and falling on each other. Love the kitties.

      Since Victoria’s legs stretch all the way to the North Pole (more kitteh lap room), Twister might be way too easy for her. How about challenging everybody to get the most adorable kitten photos and put them up on your blog. We’ll be the judges (I accept bribes … just getting that out there … chocolate please).

    We started playing Rook (card game like Rummy but not identical) our friends taught us but over the years of growing up in Alaska they have evolved the rules. Their rule changes have made the game much more challenging and plus its deeply satisfying to scream take a penalty card at the other players. If you want our comeplex rules I can happily send along via email.
