Blokus is a game that was introduced to us by Tim and Rachel. We quickly became addicted, although we don’t get to play as much as we’d like. Mainly because Declan has taken over the game entirely. Oh, he doesn’t play by the offical rules or anything… just plots the pieces on the board in interesting shapes. “Building cities,” he says.

And he likes to have us keep our eyes closed while he is erecting his monuments of civilization. Then he likes to “surprise us” with his master works.

Yeah, any game that allows me to kick back on the couch with my eyes shut for 15 minutes at a time is A-OK in my book.
