December 29, 2015 – we played Coup and its expansion, Reformation, along with Splendor with CurrerBell’s parents.
Her dad loves the social deduction of Coup and I had not played the expansion yet, so it was great to see it in action.
I’m not sure yet if it improves the original, but it certainly added a new dynamic which was fun and kept things interesting.
In order to better understand the story I read and finished the first book in the “Guardians of Ga’Hoole” series, The Capture.
It was one of the first books that my oldest daughter had read that I had not so I wanted to see what was going on.
Overall a good read, more tragic than I would have thought but a solid start to the world building that would be needed in this fifteen book series.
I finished the book on December 15, 2015.
My brother and I began watching through the Marvel movies together and on Thursday (Thor’s Day), December 10, 2015 we hit up the god of thunder with – you guessed it – Thor.
We played our first ever game of Dixit on December 7, 2015.
This has been one of our favorites, and explaining why you voted the way you did is half the fun.
On November 23, 2015 we played our first game together of Age of War.
It wasn’t as “fast-paced” as advertised as sometimes rolling that perfect roll can seem to take FOREVER … but still a great time and one we’ve played several times since.
Taught the girls how to play and had their first game of Risk on November 14, 2015.
We didn’t play and entire game and I tried to keep it moving as much as possible to just give them a taste of the real deal.
The girls and I played (for the first time together) Castle Crashers: Remastered on September 9, 2015.
This was the first type of this kind of game that they have played, and I was glad to introduce it 😀
The girls were taught Dutch Blitz over at a friend’s house on August 22, 2015.
I didn’t plan on them learning it somewhere else, but now that they know it’s been another game to go to in our game library.
I finished watching through the “Inspector Morse” series with the final episode, The Remorseful Day on August 17, 2015.
Something I like to do when finishing a series is go back and start watching the first episode, to be reminded how far things have come – and I did that here with The Dead of Jericho.
A series I really enjoyed.
Over the weekend of August 15, 2015 I watched the 1954 original Godzilla film, Gojira.
More powerful than I thought it would be, like any good “monster movie” the human drama is where the real meat is.
The soundtrack was also fantastic.
