I did not win.

Tonight Jacob came home to find a present wrapped in orange paper with a purple curly ribbon (yay for scissor curls!). That was the most obnoxious color combination that I could choose.

Since I was in the neighborhood with the new locally owned games store, I stopped by on a whim. Jacob and I play Fluxx a lot but are frustrated because Settlers of Catan can't be played by only two people. So, I had a long conversation with Peter and finally came up with Dungeon Twister.

Now, I know what you're thinking. But you're a dirty dirty girl for thinking things like that and you should probably just go sit in the corner quietly by yourself for a little while for going down that visual path.

I rejected several games that Peter offered me because I didn't like the story behind them. I'm not interested in saving the world from a pandemic disease or in building a balanced and successful farm.

Let's face it, I like killing bulgy monsters in elaborate mossy basements. See here if you need proof. So, I asked Peter for a Settlers of Catan-style strategy game for two players and when he offered me one that played out a Dungeons and Dragons plot, I handed over $30 with no further questions. Then I had him wrap it for my sweetie.

We've played it once so far and although we got at least one rule wrong for most of the game, loved it and will probably play it every night for awhile.

Life is good.

There is nothing wrong with a game built around creating a sustainable farm!

HA... Matt and TJ always try to get me to play Doom 3 and Quake 4. But I just like to watch.

The Settlers of Catan card game can be played with two people. Just a tip from an old married couple. :)
