Oh, and to get glue to secure bottom of the can so when the dice are shaken, it won't fly off...

In all fairness, I suppose they have the right to laugh at us during a little wintertime precipitation...;-) iTheresaWatson

I found a link and once I took a look at ALL the cards, yeah, I told her she wouldn't be playing this game. So, I shall have to find other older people to play the game with...but thanks anyway!

So, I need your opinion: Would I be a terribly bad person if I downloaded a deck of CAH and played it with my son and daughter (ages 17and 14 respectfully)? They really wanna play. So do I. Could you lead us to that link again? Where to give the money and all that?

Well, hopefully someone can find a way around that or even a different route altogether....

As long as he doesn't fake pee when I let him drink beer, close his eyes when I put him to bed, or stare at me while I sleep (yeah, i know I just contradicted myself), put me down for one!

Anne had made a suggestion on Twitter that the game app was free for a while in honor of TableTop's show - I got it and it has been such an addicting game! I have enjoyed playing solo to hone my strategy skills and have even unlocked the "Played 100 games" achievement (in less than 48 hours*)! That's how quick it is to catch on and play! This game is simple, but fun, and, as suggested, is very easy to learn - but I warn you: You will want to win ALL TEH TIME!! *I should also mention that my daughter graduated from 8th grade and was confirmed in this same stretch of time - I must sleeeeee...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Admittedly, I have fallen a little in love with the game Tsuro, but CANNOT FIND A PLACE TO GET IT IN TOWN!! Do I have to order it or does anyone know a place (in Austin, preferably) that I can go to get it? I want this game so badly before the end of the school year!

The first couple of games presented on Tabletop weren't that inviting for me and I almost didn't return for the lastest episode, but I am soo glad I did! First, Tsuro reminded me of a game I had years ago called crossroads. It was plainer and simpler, but in essence, the same idea. I think this would be the PERFECT game to introduce to my 7th grade students. Their games are limited to chess, checkers and speed. This game could provide a real hook into alternate types of games that are fun and quick! Second, Get Bit is a game that would greatly appeal to my 9 y.o. who seems to play games relegated for younger kids like Guess Who and Operation (although, they are the Star Wars version). I think getting eaten by a shark would be a good hook to get him to play for a bit!* Third, my daughter would like Zombie Dice, since that seems to be her favorite thing lately. And she needs to do more games, less TV watching. Since I am a teacher and have summers off, I will be introducing** screen free days to them, gradually. These will help the survival rates both for the kids and for me. Holy Crap! That's a trifecta! F.T.W! *See what i did there? **probably more like force them

Um, you didn't catch Robocop 2 on TV, did you? Because it was on TV. And then you posted the twitter thing, and then my head just a-sploded. In other news, I so dearly love short humorous stories such as this. I wrote one like it as a freshman in high school, based off the teacher's sentence starter. Didn't you try that, once upon a time? #seewhatididthere?

I think the whole jiggly motion made it real. I could foresee needing to keep it stationary only if talking for long periods of time. Score: 4 out of 5 messy offices (in a good way)!

I am not much one for gory creepy things (bee tee dubs - I will not be seeing The Thing), but this was short and relatively painless...for me anyway.
