Gaming with Grandma - 131

Another Saturday morning gaming session with my mother Sue (AKA Grandma), wife Debbie and two daughters, Maddie (almost 14!) and Georgia (9.5).

Our first game of the morning Scrabble.  The players were me, Grandma, Maddie & Georgia.  This game is an oldie but a goodie and one we all enjoy.  Final scores were Grandma 157, Maddie 128, Wayne 121 & Georgia 39.

For our second game we were joined by my wife Deb, so we now had five players.  Snorta! is a fun memory party game in which everyone is given a cute plastic animal which is shown to the other players then hidden in a little barn.  Various animal cards are played by each player one at a time in a separate pile in front of them.  When two matching animal cards appear those two players must then make the sound of the animal of the other player.  The first person to make the sound is the winner.  The loser takes all the cards from both piles and adds them to their hand.  The first player to play all their cards wins the game.

This game is a lot of fun and there was much laughter.  Maddie was even in tears at one stage she was laughing that hard.  We played three games with me winning two and Georgia winning one.
