A Place at the Table: Janeway

Today’s introduction is another board gamer who is near and dear to my heart. We’ve already met Number One. So, today, let’s get to know Janeway a little bit better. Around here, I call her Janeway, but at home, she is Abby.

What is your favorite board game, and what do you like about it?

Sheriff of Nottingham because it is fun to mess with people like Kyle. Kittens in the Blender for the same reason.

Have you learned anything from playing board games?

That you have to think ahead when you are trying to solve a problem because something may come up that will affect your initial plan.

Do you ever feel that people underestimate you because you are a teenager when they play board games with you?

Yes. Especially if it is someone that I’ve never met or played a game with. I use it to my advantage like holding on to my good cards and act like I don’t totally know what I’m doing, and once they are complacent, I’ll start playing all of my good cards.

Probably a time that I’ve beaten Eric.
