Dinner by the Numbers



Life is more fun if you play games.
~Roald Dahl





My husband and I love to play the number tile game Rummikub (rumma~cube). It is mostly a strategy game ~ no adding or subtracting numbers. My husband and I are evenly matched when we play (even though he has a bachelors and masters degree and I have neither). I feel smart when I play. Bwahahaha

This past weekend was busier than usual and there was no time to play. I suggested that we play tonight during dinner. I made some delicious chicken parmesan, set the table, and won 2 of the 3 Rummikub games. Win win! ♥

Do you have a favorite board game?

  1. Thank you, Gina!
    My Peyton LOVES these games.
    We have never played this one.
    Now I know what she is getting for her birthday!
    We do love Boggle. : )

    1. Billie Jo, let me know if she likes it! My kids don't like to play very much. My son says it's too much work (thinking!). I'm not sure if I remember which one Boggle is. We have played a lot of games in our years.

  2. I've only played this game one time at a sitting, and I loved it! Unfortunately, we all play Rook on Sat. or Sun nights. I think it's addictive. I would love to play Rummikub again. :-)

    1. Anne, I don't think I've played Rook though I've heard of it. Is it a card game? You are welcome to play Rummikub with me any time! xo

    1. Diane, Park and Shop sounds fun! I need to google it. We like to play cards too. When we have a foursome, we like to play pinochle. ♥

  4. We haven't played Rummikub in years, but what a good idea to play together while you enjoy dinner.

  5. I have not played that one, you know back when we were first married we played games all the time, but once we had computers and kindle and all our electronics we have gone away from game playing, other than on holiday's and such when we play with the kids

    1. Connie, as a family, we played games all the time. I miss that. Now when they visit especially with the grandchildren, everyone is too tired to play by the time its their bedtime.
