It's Saturday. Some days I just don't want to go *anywhere.* I realize this might make an eighty year old woman, but I'm worn out. I have spent 40 hours of my week at work, 10 hours of my week commuting and a few hours here and there of Happy Hour-ing. Saturdays can tough. Sleeping in? No way. A gimpy puppy is on a schedule! 6 a.m., 8 a.m., 10 a.m.! Can't I get some sleep?!
I have some great things that I'm going to feature every Saturday to make "staying in" a little more fun. Recipes, games, books, cocktails! If you want to play along, let me know and I'll make a McLinky. Anyway, here is my first Stay in Saturday review:
Goliath Games: Trapdoor Checkers
For this activity, adult beverages are preferred (and should be required ;) ).
This game was intriguing because I grew up loving checkers. I typically lost and I felt like now I had something on my side -- a TRAPDOOR. Okay, it doesn't sound that exciting, but it was pretty cute. As you can see in the picture, it's a normal checkers set up with a few "trap doors" (the squares that are brightly colored). Before you move, you turn the dial on the bottom right and it tells you if you should open a trap door. You then make your move as usual.
So... I was losing. I lost real bad more than once. I must admit that this game was mildly addicting. It was fast paced and I was enjoying have a night *at home* instead of running wild around town. I would definitely play this again and I recommend it to people of all ages--families especially. It's nice to feel like you have an "edge" with the trap doors and I'm sure kids would really love that.
Goliath Games can be purchased on their website or through Amazon.
