Usually Sunday is a long run day but since I’m trying to rehab my ab (rehabab), it wasn’t.

I used the time to wrap Christmas presents instead.

I bought my sister a board game called Colt Express, which may or may not prove to be a good purchase. I haven’t played it, so I don’t know what it’s like, but it looks like it might be good. It’s something to do with a wild west train robbery.

I learnt recently that board games are a burgeoning industry, and some of them are actually really fun. It’s not all Monopoly or Battleships.

I had a last minute idea to give my mum a plant from splitting one of mine. I used to have one Drosera Adelae (Australian sundew). Over the summer I split it and ended up with three, but they’re looking overcrowded again, so I split them again today and now I have five. I think she will like one.

I also did some weights (squats + deadlifts), but a little while later my abs were feeling sore again. But is that just because I sat down and my hips tightened up?

Maybe I’m going about this the wrong way. Maybe I should just focus on stretching for a while. Everyone knows that sitting all day is bad for you and shortens your hip flexors and changes the angle of your pelvis, and I don’t do any stretching to offset that.

  1. Board games! Where do I start? Some of the modern ones are such fun. I find the main thing is having people to play with.
    No harm in giving stretching a go, & if it works then great!

      1. It depends who’s playing. Ticket to ride is quite a good beginners game.
        King of Tokyo is quite fun too (it’s a knockout game though so people wander off), & the dice have interesting picture (like claws for attack), again – people who play a lot can work out the strategy. I like shorter game, some of them last for hours!
        I like the ones where you get to play & then figure the scores out at the end. & some of the co-operative (rather than competitive) ones. Like pandemic, & x-com.
        I’m not that well versed in modern board games. We joined a club but I’m mostly too lazy to go & some of the members are a little too serious for my liking!

      2. Lol, I can imagine the serious types! In my previous job we used to play Carcassonne and Bang (card game) at lunch sometimes and it was fun. Bang especially, but you need quite a few people.

        I’ll have to check those out. I have heard good things about Ticket to Ride. Didn’t know x-com was a board game… have heard of the computer game (but never played it).

      3. X-com is based on the computer game & requires an app to play. We got the expansion but I don’t think we’ve played it since. It can get a bit stressful, it’s timed turns via the app!


  2. My eldest has been getting into games with her uni chums. Finding the time is a challenge. We play risk and monopoly on the PS4, really need to branch out. I’ve heard ticket to ride is very good and have seen some others out there with excellent reviews. I have purchased a game for the family for this year, not a board game though. “Throw, Throw Burrito” a card game that results in a soft burrito being chucked around. No idea how it will go down, we’ll see tomorrow. Have a great christmas.
