there are three board games that we pull out whenever we’ve got time to spare for a game: Uno, Boggle, and Wit’s End. my vote is usually for Boggle (because i usually win). with Uno, winning can go either way. typically, Wit’s End is the boyfriend’s strongest game because the questions are more intellectual and the game skews to a slightly older demographic.
we went to High Park yesterday to take advantage of a pleasant free day. we played Uno on a park bench looking out onto Grenadier Pond. i won every hand we played. so, to make up it, we agreed to play Wit’s End last night. and i finally won a round. i’ve gotten close in the past, around the top level, but always missed the final question. it was the best game night ever.
if only there were a cryptic crossword board game. he’d totally win at that.
