Bed Rest Diversion #9: Boardgames

by Josée

Hubby and I enjoy playing boardgames together. It started in university when friends of ours introduced us to Settlers of Catan. Unbeknown to us, at that moment our eyes were opened to a new world of boardgames which we never knew existed! Since then we’ve played many fantastic boardgames and filled our shelves with our own collection of “must haves!”.

Since I’ve been on “bed rest” hubby and I have had the chance to play some fun boardgames, one of which he just got for Christmas: Race for the Galaxy!

When Hubby first got this game I wasn’t too interested in playing. First, I’m not really the “space, alien, conquering worlds” kind of gal and second, the rules seemed way too complicated. But, Hubby finally convinced me to give it a try. During the first three games I asked a lot of questions and had no idea what I was doing. By the fourth game I finally started to figure out the strategy. Strategy is important in this game but there is also an element of luck which I like. Also, the game also doesn’t last long, 15-30 minutes, which is great.

Josee, you finally tried it! I chuckled when I read how you got into it, sounded so much like me with hubby too:) I hope you continue to enjoy it more, if I'm honest with myself, it's not such a bad game! It's good to see you keeping busy despite your circumstances – continuing to pray for you and your family
