Day 8: National Divorce Day

It’s no secret that I am an avid player of Dungeons & Dragons.

Over the new year, our party went to a castle, cooked a feast, dressed up as our characters, and played our campaign, and it was so much fun!

But I guess D&D isn’t really a board game.

So: board games!

Monopoly is a recipe for arguments. Joe won’t play Scrabble with me because I’m too good.

We love Bananagrams, which is like Scrabble on cocaine.

And we love Carcassonne and Risk.

We bought each other a game for Christmas, too — Odin’s Ravens and You’ve Got Crabs (lol).

Anyway, I’m rambling, which is kind of the point of this prompt.

Do you play board games? What do you play?

Did you play as a kid and are now scarred for life?

Set a timer for 5 minutes and write!

OH OH! Speaking of learning things that are super fun, would you like to write a MicroBook with me? We start on January 10, and you can sign up here.
