Fencing, food and fun – an evening w/Nintendo

On May 31, 2010 we went over to a friend’s house and between the good food and Catch Phrase, we were able to enjoy some good ol’ fashioned Nintendo.

Here’s the list of what went on:

  • This was the first time I got to play Wii Resort, and the fencing was something to behold – not to mention more of a workout than I anticipated! It was the closest thing I’ve played so far to a sword simulation, and just the little hint of strategy used (or tried to use) while playing made it fun. That said, I mostly just bashed away. A great time!
  • My daughter loved the jogging “game.” She went to town, running hard in place holding the remote – it was cute. We all played some bowling together as well.
  • Played several DS games with my friend’s son – he was really looking forward to it. I love the connection games give you to someone, no matter the age
