Dear Board Game Diary,
I love October. I wouldn’t even hesitate to call myself basic: cider, donuts, warm sweaters, and pumpkin-spiced anything. It’s all a big part of what makes fall one of my favorite seasons. It also doesn’t hurt that October contains one of my favorite holidays which is Halloween but not for the reasons you may think. Dressing up for the holiday has never been something I looked forward to but I have looked forward to the movies. I could, without any financial demands, sit in for a month-long horror movie marathon filled with all the monsters, slashers, ghosts, and ghouls one could handle.Continue reading

You crack the cellophane wrapping off your latest board game acquisition and dive into the bits with an immeasurable amount of exuberance.

Hello gamers! And welcome to another episode of A Place at the Table. We’ve had a nice little break as my household finished up summer and got back into the swing of things for the newest year of homeschooling for Peep and Stormageddon.
What’s on the docket for today, you ask? Let’s talk about co-op (cooperative) games . I’ll admit that here in the A.P.A.T.T. household, we don’t have a lot of co-op games. We have a couple that we pull out when we have larger groups of people over, but when it is just Number One and me at the house, we stick with non-co-op games.
There are some things that I like about co-op games and some things that I don’t like about them.Continue reading
