On Saturday, a package from Germany arrived, and one of the things inside was my favorite board game from when I was a child: Malefiz (also known as Barricade). My best friend sent it to me as a thank-you for finishing two cross-stitched tablecloths that she had started and wasn’t able to find the time to finish.
Sara saw me open the box, and asked what it was, and when I told her that it was a game, her face lit up, and she asked “can we play it?” Sure! I played two rounds with her right away, and after dinner all four of us played. Melissa wasn’t too happy about it, because she wanted to play on the computer instead, but mean mommy didn’t give her a choice. And wouldn’t you know it… she ended up winning!
