Last night I was invited by friends to their house for dinner. I rarely decline a dinner (or lunch) invitation from this couple. Not only are they both trained chefs who can even make an exeptional meal out of sausages, they are great company. Incidently, I haven't invited them to dinner at my house but when I do, they will have to do the cooking!
Dinner was a French risotto with chicken and fennell, and brocolli on the side. Just something my friend whipped up while we stood in her kitchen chatting. I brought the wine. Like always, the food was fantastic. The wine was good too.
After dinner the man of the house brought out the Chinese Checkerboard. I hadn't played this game in years, so required a quick recap on the rules. In fact, it had been a long time since I'd sat after dinner and played a board game. So long that I can't even remember the last time that happened.

Not surprisingly, I came second last... but at least I beat the kid! Although I think we need a re-match, as that one was just practice.
When was the last time you played an 'old fashioned' board game?
