Play a board game (well, except maybe this one…)
I checked out a few garage sales today with my next door neighbour buddy. We had so much fun. I found a few vintage pieces for my kitchen collection, some wooden checkers, a couple of vintage board games, some dice and a great old work bench.
I found the first vintage board game at a community garage sale for the SPCA. It’s called Stock Ticker – and I bought it not to play it but to be sure no one else would – eek. Here’s a picture of the game description – disturbing – but hilarious all the same.
So I’ll stick to Yahtzee and spare my children the lessons of stock ticker – that is, unless I preface it by making them watch Inside Job first so they can understand the real power of the games that grown ups play.
