Game Night

I'm very far behind on blogging all the stories I have to tell. The last post is an example. Some of those pictures were from November! I am going to share with you something that happened before Christmas. Dad was on something called vacation and Mom decided to be too (she's a grad student so she can do that). It was glorious having both of them home a lot. I'm so much happier when both are around. Anyway, they played some games since they had the time and one of them was Trivial Pursuit. One night I asked if I could play too, and they let me! Kind of like what Maggie did. I was very happy when I saw her post... something we have in common! Maybe one day Mom will let me invite her over for a game. Anyway, here are the pictures of when I played (you can click the pictures to make them bigger if you like):




The box was so much fun I thought I might like to try the game.






Getting ready to roll the dice. See the smile on my face? I was glad to play.







How many did I roll?








Counting out my next move.








That's ok Dad, I can move it myself.






This game is tiring. Wake me up if I win.

You are so clever Mattingly! I played Scrabble with my humans the other night, my dad accused me of cheating because I kept moving his words across the board. But I didn't win - my mum did!

Can I come play???

William said...

You didn't run off with any of those little pieces, did you?

Les Trois Chats said...

Precious. I view board games as a time for target practice. You know, aim for a certain fun looking little piece, then pounce on it and swat it off the board. It's pretty cool that your mom and dad let you play. My dad is a grad student too! I like having him around so much, though he is sometimes really grumpy...

I see how the game can be boring to a kitty.
