Day 5.358: Play your cards right!

We played quite a few games during our eleven day break.  Some of them even avoided any kind of electronic device.

This is from one of our new games: Man Bites Dog - in which the challenge is to make headlines from the cards you are dealt.  There's a scoring element, but mostly it's about making each other laugh.  This one:

did just that with images of Michelle Obama on a trapeze and a plummeting guy in a suit.

Over the last couple of days, we introduced the girls to one of the 'grown-up card games' of my youth, whist - we played a variation including a hand of no trumps - special preparation for the bridge playing days in their future.  They both did extremely well - grasping the principals and even a little card counting perhaps.  As ever, Exile #4 was fiercely competitive, winning both games, first partnered by me and then by Exile #2.
