Thursday Thoughts

Dave and I spent the afternoon yesterday visiting with my grandma. She was extra talkative, telling us stories from your youth. Many of the stories I had never heard. One thing she mentioned was how much she loved playing cards with my grandpa. When the two of them played together they would play Gin Rummy. My family has always been a bunch of card players. Our favorite game? Euchre. And we're competitive. During family Christmas parties we would actually play competitive euchre for money. It's a good thing I married someone who loves cards as much as I do and is REALLY good at euchre. Our favorite game to play, just the two of us, is Five Crowns.

So, do you like playing cards or board games? If yes, what is your favorite?

My family is really into cards as well and Euchre is favorite. They also play Kansas City Rouke alot.

I'm not so much into cards, but I like board games. Scrabble and chess are my favorites. :)

We love cards with friends - it's a good chance to catch up.

I had a rather unhealthy addiction to euchre while I was a college student. We would literally play for hours. Did you know you could make euchre a drinking game?

That's an easy one. I LOVE poker. Texas holdem. I play with family, online, and at casinos. :) For money.
