The Scrabble game started last Friday and ended on Thursday. In case you missed the tweets, here are the rolls:Continue reading “R is for Results (Scrabble That Is)”
She’s always loved the irrational modifiers that she dreams up to apply to games. Scrabble being a favorite; it’s this weird mix of “you have to make these odd words” or “this many words with more than “X” letters…” or “Whoops… sorrrrrrry THAT didn’t work out as planned.Continue reading “I is for It’s Not Fair”
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a poll on Twitter asking about starting a new game. I asked if I should do another Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, CAH or a new game. While the poll results did appear to be tied at 35.3% for both a new one and Scrabble, they were skewed by a mistaken vote for Trivial Pursuit that I was asked to change.Continue reading “S is for Scrabble”
Of course it’s Halloween-time of year – things are finally cooling a tad, and all sorts of excuses for fun and games. Of course Charmer is always one to raise the stakes and have some fun with things, and this is no different.Continue reading “T is For Trick or Treat… Charmer Style”
It’s been hot and most of the indoor recreation places haven’t been open this summer so we’ve been spending some time decluttering. Not much fun, but at least more productive than watching another cooking show.Continue reading “M is for Model”
Yes, I hinted at a new one arriving in the Snake Den. So while Snake is busy trying to figure out if it will be Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit or Cards Against Humanity….it will beContinue reading “G is for Games”
Yes–we did finally finish the game that I started on the 6th…. It ended on Saturday night with my backrub and happy ending.Continue reading “Anniversary Scrabble–The Results”
As I mentioned on Twitter, work got crazy right after we got back from Las Vegas so I had to postpone the game for a little bit. It still hasn’t eased up and I don’t see that happening for the near future so I decided that we need the game to carve out a little time for us.Continue reading “Quick Scrabble Update”
The crowd goes wild. Snake cringes and hopes that I will lose the handy bag of tiles that are stored in a brown paper wine bag from our trip to Sonoma a few years ago.Continue reading “Anniversary Scrabble”
You’ve chosen to edge yourself for an extra Scrabble tile. Well, it’s only 10 and that really not all that challenging. So, what’s Charmer to do to make it more interesting?Continue reading “Games Within Games”
It’s been a long month or so at the Snake Den. Family and traveling and colds and company has made it hard to have time to ourselves. And we do miss our play.Continue reading “Did You Miss My Games?”
It starts with a note in your lunch. Check your glove compartment box for the beginning of the quest. Intrigued, you go out and find a magnifying glass and a photo.Continue reading “Scavenger Hunt”
So, of course, Charmer won the game that was built around that inhumane cards…of game. I will never forgive everyone for simply picking incorrectly – I mean, would it have killed you to pick mine? Not a single person wrote to ask which one…
My penance – 2 hours of torture of her choosing.Continue reading “2 Hours of Sexual Torture… that really was.”
And Snake has obviously missed his favorite game. So, being the benevolent leader who I am, I am going to let him play it again. What are the rules and challenges this time?Continue reading “It’s Back….Scrabble That is”
There have been memes and life and I haven’t had time to give the results of the second round. I’m sure it has been in the back of your brain, keeping you awake at night so, here goes….Continue reading “Results of Round Two of the Game”
We finished the last round of the game on Friday morning and I promised (OK, teased) the results would be forthcoming.Continue reading “Results of Round One of the Game”
Game update: Today is day 5. We did have the one tie which really surprised me. But please participate in the polls. I want to win–and landslides are always better than by a nose!Continue reading “Charmer Silliness”
So far, one person has won both days. This could bode really well or, well, not so well for Snake. Stay tuned….Continue reading “Game Progress and Aladdin”
Snake and I have had a crazy May. Unexpected trip out of town for eight days to deal with family stuff. It was good but incredibly stressful.Continue reading “New game….and you get to help”
“So, here’s the deal…” she says with that grin. “With it being Halloween, we’re going to play a game with a mask so you can earn some additional play time…”
My head: “whut?”
I should know better. It’s just not ever simple. She starts telling me what we’re doing – but I lose track because she’s coming at me with that full bondage hood mask we picked up a while ago. It’s one of those stretchy, blindfold embedded, ear-muffling, fully head-covering masks. I’m lost in the whole WTF of the situation. Finally, I think to ask –
It’s been a really long day and as we’re just sitting chatting, you keep talking, but stand up and do this extremely slow, deliberate undressing. If you were only listening to what’s going on, you’d not even realize something had changed; you keep up the conversation, you keep asking questions, the whole bit.
But if I stop to watch, or make any indication that I “notice” (puhleaze, not something I will miss), you stop and just look at me until it’s back to normal. Then you move forward… button by agonizing button. Untucking, undressing, even throwing in some gyrating…
It’s been a time of ongoing games here in the snake den (pit? house? tunnel?) – of course Charmer is nothing if not an artist at slanting those rules … just… so. But it’s a fun and random and certainly has a way of changing things up.
So, of course, you had to know, there is a game going on (always… 🙂 ). And, also of course, you know that means that the chances of not having tasks and such as I lose rounds is, well, NIL.
I look at the calendar. The lack of W’s seems to indicate yet another game loss for you. And we don’t have anything planned for the day so it seems like a perfect opportunity to give you a chance. I like you being the underdog but it might be fun to let you think I’ll make it easier this time.
