We all were hooked on Blokus Jr. and after playing two players for a few days during the Frenemies' visit, Luuuuiiiisssss and everyone decided that a 10 p.m. run to Walmart was in order to get the full, adult version of Blokus.
The keyword here is that it was the 'adult' version.
If you must know, the above is not the proper way to play Blokus. It's a strategy game where you try to get rid of your pieces as much as you can but at the same time, block other players from putting down their pieces. It is a lot more fun than it sounds especially if like us, you designate titles to all your colour teams.
Blue = Serious Blue or The English (depending on which version you want to play - the historical version or the ass kicking version)
Green = Plague Green
Red = Clown Red or the Yanks (depending on which version you want to play - the historical version or the joker version)
Yellow = Mongolian Yellow
Note to H1 and self for future reference: Clown Red and Serious Blue from our misgivings during our gaming during The Legend of Zelda: Four Sword Adventures.
We had Blokus marathons nightly and it was ridiculous. I think it is safe to say that I would not be surprised if Blokus started showing up at everyone's houses everywhere. Yes. Plague Green, indeed.
Thanksgiving was fun. There was a lot of food as per usual and a lot more babies as our frenemies' and the HOchieS' families grow.
With the addition of so many babies, it also meant a lot of baby food in the house. I would like to make things clear right now: Gerber Graduates Banana Puffs are the best.
|We ate up puffs and drank plenty of Coke Zero in Domo Cups.|
|Apparently, these puffs are for crawlers. CLee and I can both crawl. I don't see the problem.|
Well, we would have eaten off the entire container but H1 reminded us that X's baby, Five Dumplings, was supposed to at our house a few days after the fact....heh, we may have forgotten but the eating of the puffs was not done intentionally to take food away from babies.
Although, it should always be done that way because you can be damned sure that Five Dumplings took dim sum out of my mouth last week Saturday.
He's asking for trouble, that one.
