Board Game Night

Tonight the family sat down to play a board game.  We decided on something that looked interesting.

San Juan 104

It was called Robin Hood and it looked like it was made in about 1972.  In reality, it was published in 1990,

The board looked like this:

San Juan 087

Now maybe my family just isn’t that smart, but it confused the hell out of us.  You had to push card through the plastic castle thing instead of using a dice or spinner, and you had to go through crazy, confusing duals with the sheriff.  And let me tell you, you don’t wanna mess with this sheriff.

San Juan 101

When the sheriff ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.

San Juan 089

This is Chris’s reaction to this game.  Now let’s see everyone else’s reaction:

San Juan 093    San Juan 095

Me:  Not impressed that I’m losing.
Kaycee:  Bored and a little confused.

San Juan 098    San Juan 099

Mom and Kirk:  Both having a great ol’ time.  I think they must’ve been drinking.

Moral of the story:  Don’t play the 1972 (1990) version of Robin Hood unless you’ve been drinking or you easily get excited when you win.  So excited in fact, the the fake money in your hands actually starts to glow causing you to turn manic.

San Juan 103

But really friends, game night is always a good time.  I love spending time with my family.
