I love games. Board games, water games, games in general. (minus hide ‘n seek – Curtis says I’m to old for that ) The last few years Curtis and I have enjoyed playing chess quite a bit (other then the whole year in Iraq thing). The problem with chess is I always win, as I have patience (yes, me) and he has none. So we decided to branch off into other strategic games. And the two we found are Khet and Stratego.
Khet (pic on right) is sort of like chess, but with lasers and an Egyptian theme. – I win at this as well. But Stratego is different, as in, not like chess. Stratego is a board game for two players. You are each given 40 pieces; these pieces include a marshal, some colonels, lieutenants, and a few sergeants. I of course sacrifice my lieutenants first, as all good sergeants know. And you also have bombs. The point of the game is to be the first to capture the others flag. We’re pretty evenly matched (aka, he wins alot and I just don’t want to admit it).
I love it that I can sit around for hours and play games. I suppose thats one of the perks to marrying your best friend. Of course, the bad part is that I get kind of cranky when I lose. Ok, maybe really cranky.
Check the games out if you have a willing partner and, well, win one for the home team.
