Chickenfoot. It's a dominoes game that I learned to play while working at Rainbow Trout Ranch. The game was invented and actually made down the road at the little store in Antonito, Colorado. I have such fond memories of munching on Dorritoes,sipping red Kool Aid, and playing Chickenfoot at the Ranch. In fact one of the nicest surprises I ever got was our beautiful little set of Chickenfoot dominoes. My friend, Summer, who also worked on the Ranch with me sent them to me when I was pregnant and on bed rest. Funny how time flies by and now I get to watch my own kids get a kick out of Chickenfoot. Good for math skills, good for siblings, and most importantly just good old fashioned fun. So in addition to Chickenfoot, here are a few of the other games we have been enjoying as a family:
Blink, Rummikub, Mastermind, Guess Who, Rook, Izzi, Rush Hour, River Crossing (these last three are good for both individual and collaborative play)
What's popular in your house these days? Would love some ideas for upcoming holiday gifts And speaking of new games, Adam has just returned from the States and brought back one involving small plastic pigs...off to give that a try. Happy Gaming!
