Qwirkle Kid

This week is Christopher's birthday (and, as such, a birthday lasts all week in the Harrist household).  The birthday boy gets a week of picking some of his favorite foods, his favorite games and fun things to do.  Luckily for our little, getting bigger each day, man, it is also vacation week which means choices are infinite.

So what has young Christopher chosen to do everyday this week, since Saturday?  Play his newest game, Qwirkle!  If you have never heard of this, it is a spin on Scrabble using colors and shapes.  And, in my son's defense, it is addicting!  In the past month or so Christopher has been lured in by strategy games like Sudoku, Scrabble and now Qwirkle.

He loves to find ways to make the biggest possible scores and of course stop mom and dad from making those same big scores.  We are on day 4 of the having the game and he wins as much as anyone else. There is no easy winning in our home! 

Thank you, Gramma and Granpa for this fantastic gift!  Be ready to play when you come visit!
