I feel like I'm cheating .. I wrote this post last week so I didn't have to come up with a new one this week. Hop on over to Quilting in My Pyjamas to see what everyone else's favorites are ..
My favorite this week is playing games -- and in particular, card games. Some of my favorite card games are: pitch, pinochle, cribbage, spades, and hearts (and probably tons more but I can't think of any right now). And then when it comes to computers, I like hearts and spider solitaire. Oh, and Texas Hold Em.
When we camp, we play cards at night by lantern light. Actually, whenever the whole family gets together, we like to play games.
When I was first dating my husband, I can remember going to his parents' house and watching his family play pitch. I had never played pitch before, but I watched for a while and had the basic idea of how to play. I had a ton of strategy to learn, but I could play -- of course my #1 son, thinks I still have a lot of strategy to learn (he refuses to be my partner).
And pinochle (double deck only). Just the best card game ever. It's hard to find other couples to play cards with .. guess that's why we had to teach our kids how to play.
All of my kids know how to play (both pitch and pinochle ) -- at least I think they do. I know the four older ones do .. not so sure about the youngest. Anyway, it's great fun when we're all together. (We also play board games like Taboo, Cranium, and the old favorite, Trivial Pursuit -- ooh, and I almost forgot Pit).
