Cold Day in January

Cold Day in January - that means a Family Game Day. We stayed home after church, had some nice sandwiches, and played a couple of family board games.

First we played Streetcar. This was a first time for us. Heidi and I loved it - Anita hated it. For the same reason she hates Cape Horn. In her words -
I can either build a network, or move around on one. I don't like having to do one and then the other, I am too wrapped up in building the right network to enjoy it.

Heidi won Streetcar, and loved the twisty-turny nature of it.

After that we played Zooloretto. Great game, can't wait to get Aquaretto and give it a try (either alone or combined). Anita won by a couple of points over Heidi, and a lot of points over me. Heidi decided to take a break and rest and read a book. So Anita and I cracked a bottle of Austrian red wine. Not too good. Now I know why Austria is known for white wines.

We played some Lost Cities, which is always a good time for 2. Then it was time for dinner (going out with my brother's family for food), so we put it down until later on tonight. More Lost Cities later, but no more Austrian zweigelt, please.
