Have you met Skip?

Skip Bo.
He is the newest addiction around here.  We save money on booze these days, because we spend so much time playing Skip Bo, we don't want to do much else.
My mom started it.  She has loved this game for years.
She bought a set of the cards for my house and just after school was out, she taught my 6 year old to play.
We sat one day and played so long, we all had to find pillows to sit on because our behinds were sore from the kitchen chairs.  (cushions soon to be purchased!)
We even took this game on vacation with us and played on the plane.
It served as a great distraction the week we were all sick.
Hot tea and Skip Bo, a great combo.

please excuse the rice cake crumbs

If you need a new game, this is a fun one, but beware, it's like chocolate.  Or crack.  Or booze.
Take your pick.
It could even be the new weight loss plan, who knows.
Have fun!

Have you been playing any games this summer?

I've never heard of this game but might have to give it a try. It's so neat to hear that families play games together. So many life lessons learned at that time.

Brings back so many memories. I played this for hours with my Mom through the years. I sure miss her!

I always see that game and wonder what it is. My son is MAD about Monopoly right now--the loooongest game in history!

Jenny said...

Oh goodness - I wish I had time for games!

Perhaps running around after the Grands could be considered a game:-)

Just ran across your blog post and glad to see someone else who is addicted to Skipbo! My sister-in-law and I had a marathon during our visit there recently! My 6 year old grandson likes to play it too, but he tends to change the rules and do it his own way!

My chicas are almost grown, and we still like to play Skip Bo!
