No, I’m not talking about Ree and Ro. They’re not sleeping (yet) and if anyone’s the queen around here it’s me. I’m talking about this new card game the girls are mad for called Sleeping Queens. Ma and Pa gave it to them for their birthdays, and we’ve played it almost every night since.
It’s a cute game, dreamed up by a six-year-old girl, which tickles my fancy. The object of the game is to awaken the sleeping queens, and you draw a bunch of power cards along the way (kings, knights, dragons, potions, and wands) to help your cause. You can also play your number cards by making equations (like the 7+1=8 below), and that’s a feature that I LOVE. The girls are getting so adept at glancing at their hands and knocking out simple addition or subtraction equations. It’s fun.
Anyhow, eight thumbs up on this game from our little family.
...never fails to scare the crap out of me when I round a corner and see it. It’s like living with a horde of really big colorful spiders.
