1 - Battlestar Galactica (it's awesome, you should come up and play it sometime!)

2 - 12 years (?)

3 - Asking my wife to marry me (that's the soppy answer right?). Applying for a job over the internet with people I'd never met. That worked out well :)

1. I quite like Cranium, as a mash-up of other good games... I think I prefer cards to board games, though. Or Boggle.

2. Hmmm... Must be 11.

3. Waiting for my son to arrive when he was ready, though the doctors were getting impatient.

Oooh, I agree with Deb's 4 - I want to change my answer to SHOWER and TOILET. I never realised that a toddler in the house meant that these would no longer be private moments.

1. Your board game of choice - hmm, toughie - you haven't seen our board game cupboard, plus a friend sells the ones that places like Toys R Us don't carry. It depends on time & no. of players. When it's just the two of us, it'd probably be Ticket to Ride (any version), Carcassonne or Backgammon (although when we moved to Mackay we made ourselves sick of Carcassonne because all the others were in storage for two months while we were looking for somewhere to rent). With more people, Mystery of the Abbey would probably be the winner since it can't be played by just two people.

2. How many years have you had a full drivers' licence? - Got it late, so only around 17.5.

3. A risk you are glad you took - Having a heart operation (BTW, at latest check-up, cardiologist said he doesn't want to see me for another 2 years - as opposed to 1).

4. A place you like to go on your own - grocery shopping.

5. A place you like to go with company - movies

Ruth said...

1. Settlers of Catan.

2. 16 yrs I think? About that.

3. Having a fifth child. :). (6th one was a bonus)

4. My imagination.

5. I like to go shopping with my second son. He enjoys shopping, but more importantly, it's when he and I have our serious chats.

Laeticia, You might like my board game cupboard too. It is literally overflowing (Pictionary and Carcasonne have fallen out because they just don't fit any more, and several other games have taken up semi-permanent residence at a friend's house) :)

Ben McLaughlin said...

1. Monopoly or Scrabble
2. Maybe two? Late bloomer.
3. Emailing E for the first time, way back when.
4. Comic shops, book shops and horror movies
5. Most other places

Laetitia :-) said...

Hang on, just re-read it - full driver's licence - are you meaning Provisional or Open? If Open then I'm somewhere around 15.75. :-)
