    Games! We always have really good laughs playing Headbands (I don’t know why, but it’s funny), Apples to Apples, and Pictionary (I have know idea what real rules are; we just take turns drawing from our cards and everyone guesses at once. No one wins, but our awful drawings elicit tears.)

    I want ALL the kittens!

    Game: Carcassonne is my favorite board game. There is not much setup (as opposed to Settlers of Catan, which I recommend but play it with someone who knows how to play). Carcassonne is also good for kids, my 6 and 7 year old girls play it well and love it, although I generally think of it as a game for adults. Not hard to learn either!

    Adorable!

    As far as games…we play a *LOT* of Rummikub around here. And Apples to Apples is a family-friendly version of Cards Against Humanity. 🙂

    You must get Speak Out. Somewhat ridiculous, but hilarious!! fun.

    We played it last year and seriously laughed so hard we were all crying. That, or we truly did pee our pants.

    There is no better game than Catan.
    How do you leave the house in the morning? I personally think you shouldn’t have to. You should apply for maternity leave.

    I can’t handle the cuteness overload of this post. I need another kitten in my life!

    Am I the only one who felt a yawn coming on when I cam upon the yawning kitten??

    PS: we are adopting two “special needs” cats this week. Jake (#1) is diabetic and I pick him up today. Blossom was injured while being intubated for dental surgery so she coughs every now and then. She comes to us next week. Can’t wait to have kitties in the house again!!

    if you like cards against humanity, i think you would also like joking hazard. it’s very similar in its gameplay, except you make cyanide and happiness comic strips instead of sentences. 🙂

    We love games at our house. Ticket to Ride is a lot of fun. Not too complicated, but you definitely have to strategize. If you like cooperative games, you might try Forbidden Island. it’s an easy to learn entry into the genre.

    On my list of things I want for Christmas is the game Cottage Garden. It’s new to the US and I think you would love it. You make lovely little Tetris gardens with cats. adorable cats and pretty flowers: it’s a winning combo.

    I LOVE Quirkle. I even keep it in the trunk of my car for just in case I need a quick game.
    Will Wheaton of Star Trek TNG game has a show on YouTube that reviews table top games.
    There are geek shops (comic book stores) that hold table top game. nights and are a good place to try stuff out without buying it.
    Ticket to Ride and Settlers of Catan are fun, but pricey. You’d be surprised how fun Connect4 and GuessWho can be with adults. And the old standbys of Monopoly, Life, Chinese Checkers, Mancala and Chess often get overlooked but are a BLAST to play with grownups.

    Apples to Apples is a lot of fun too. Lots of laughs.

    Third generation of my family now is hooked on the card game “PIT”. It’s really fun if everyone is trading their commodities at once, screaming over each other to be heard. We also like Scrabble original and Slam.
    ONLY 500 pictures of the kittehhhs? Come on, slacker!

    Games: We LOVE castle panic, a cooperative game where everybody is on the same team. Sounds boring: Isn’t! There is also a version that is Star Trek or Wars or some such, which is also good.
    We play Farkle a lot, everybody can play (even parents and kids, no censorship needed) and it’s a nice one to do while you are just visiting and catching up.
    Captivation is a great word game, we also LOVE an older game we found called HuggerMugger. I think you would like the Frog riding a Penny Farthing on the lid.

    I lost my very affordable apartment near SanFrancisco when the neighbors flooded theirs & the mold invaded mine. The landlord was VERY dishonest and dragged his feet fixing things until I had to move out. He then quickly fixed it and put it on the market for 3x what I had been paying. Even though I wasn’t experiencing true homelessness, it was impossible to find anything affordable within reasonable commuting distance. My job suddenly ended due to the company being sold and I was really in a tailspin. Again, not impoverished, i had a buyout and options! But I now understand better how quickly things can go to utter shit overnight. I ended up moving cross country and taking a job at 1/3 of my previous salary and none of the perks I was accustomed to. I’m still readjusting —as only an over educated and privileged white girl can— with a regular paycheck and a roof over my head. And before anyone Rises up in ire, yeah I get it— It’s NOTHING like being poor, uneducated and lacking good options.

    I’m enjoying your kittens as I can imagine how sweet and fluffy they are but do not have to clean a cat box. ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂
