it's a new thing to me. either you're from one of those game families or your not. i'm not. we did weird things, like:
1. put on concerts for our parents. our favorite part was when dad would say "INTRODUCING... SARAH AUGHTMAN". then sarah would come in and do a cheer. probably "who rocks the house" if my memory serves me correctly. "go jets! we're number 1!"
2. we would guess which bird noise dad was making... only to find a screeching crow at the end of the line up. i guess the game phase of mine and sister's lives were spent growing up in beauregaurd. so give a break.
it just all depends on where you're coming from.
some like board games
others just prefer keeping score.
