What’s Your Favorite Game?

I grew up playing games ALL THE TIME! We had so many board games. We had Parcheesi, Life, Monopoly, Scrabble, Battleship, Chutes and Ladders, Candyland...all the greats!

My parents were incredible card players. They taught me how to play Solitaire at 5. I was also my father's Pinoccle partner at age 8.

But there is one game I JUST learned how to play!

Internet Unsurprisingly Chooses Cat For Newest Monopoly Piece

The public has spoken and Monopoly will cast away the boring old iron token, a symbol of domestic housework from a simpler time (it's not even an electric iron), which has been included in the board game for almost 80 years.

In its place will be a cat. Hey, are you really that surprised? The internet loves cats.

Words With Friends…It’s Scrabble!

Chad and I love to play games against each other. Except with Carrum, because I CAN'T WIN!!  But I digress....

I'm just as hooked as everyone else when it comes to my smartphone. I have 3 games that I have downloaded.  Scramble, Hanging With Friends and Words With Friends.

But has anyone else noticed the similiarities?

No More Chuck E. Cheese

The commercials on Nickelodeon aren't going to help when the last Chuck E. Cheese in Maine closes its doors on Sunday.

Out of the blue to all of us, their only Maine location couldn't come to an agreement on lease terms. School children all over Maine are going to have to do without...or do they?

‘Jumanji’ Remake Brings the Board Game Back to Life

'Jumanji' was that mid-90s movie with Robin Williams that was ostensibly based on a board game but actually based on a book. It's a fine enough movie that made some money and showed off what were, at the time, some impressive visual FX.
