The kid found Chutes and Ladders at her school. Some old person must have been cleaning out the attic and ran across a bunch of old games and then donated them to the school. We got Chutes and Ladders. I haven’t seen the game since I was a little kid. We had it. It is a game of pure luck. There is absolutely no strategy which is just great for Pops after a long day. I didn’t even need to move my own piece on the board because it is all automatic and brainless fun.
I love that the age label at the bottom says 3-6 years old. If you are over 7 this game is far beneath your intelligence level. And hear I am over 40 years old and trying to win. But I couldn’t beat them. The 6 year old kicked my ass 3 times and the 9 year old whooped my ass in the last round. I quit. I think they cheat. They had hand signals and I wasn’t paying attention. I gave the each a cookie and sent them to bed.
I re-loaded some Blue Raspberry from Silk Cloud and pulled out Dungeons and Dragons instructions and read through that. I figure if I am going to sit with these kids and play brainless games they ought to be more exciting.
They loved the idea of killing dragons and fighting wizards.
