Virginia is really into board games right now. She’s eight, so almost to the age where she can win without us letting her. Most board games are just luck, anyway, once you understand how to play. We’ve been digging up some of the old classics out the closet in my parents’ basement. We’ve got everything down there, from Battleship and Sorry! to Candyland and Mancala to a bunch of different versions of that game where to try to roll a boll uphill by moving two poles, because my mom didn’t get rid of anything that could conceivably be used by a grandchild one day. We even have one of those magnetic football tables where the board vibrates to make the tiny players move as they really would if playing football during an earthquake.
