Day 26: Family games

We usually have a quiet Boxing Day. Sometimes we have visitors, sometimes it's just us, but it's an opportunity to read our new books and play our new games, eat more nice food, and just spend time together.

The Children were given the Lego game Minotaurus this Christmas. It's great!! We've had several rounds already. Part of its attraction is that the situation can change so quickly - a player can be in the lead and then the rest of The Family can cruelly and unjustifiably gang up on them and set the Minotaur on them and move the walls to block them off and they can lose after all..... Ahem. If your family members are grown up enough to cope with such sudden changes in fortunes, it is a great game to play :-)

Dotty red Bazzill and various offcuts from Shimelle's kit, Sonburn Design alpha stickers, Elle's Studio number, and the Family bingo card from Jess.

I haven't used the dotty bazzill yet .... I need to get some!
Unfortunately not all members of our family would cope with this type of game yet - a couple more years I think.
