Late wishes ....

... but then I gotta live upto my name.

Happy New Year to all you folks from B and CP!!

We spent the new year with friends and as the party was winding down (read drinks and food polished off) someone brought out a fav childhood game - Boggle. Had loads of fun beating the blocks off every player. And, I won because I am amazingly and awesomely skilled and not because everyone was ever-so-slightly on the go. The Year-That-Is should be so easy ....

What did y'all do for new years? And any favorite board games where you KNOW you can kick player butt??

A very happy New Year to you! Great to know you had fun. We met up few of our friends and had whale of time pulling each others leg! We wanted to play cards but we just yakked away!
As for games, I am a loser all the way hehehe. Sometimes Lady Luck does side me but most of the times, I am the one being kicked ;)

Happy New Year !

I love LUDO but aint too skilled. i love Scrabble too, But aint kickass. All I need is practice. Besides I never played when the rest of the people were plastered.

angel, abha - i see monopoly is quite the fav. ... oh and speaking of snakes and ladders, i imagine all the sa re ga ... marathi kiddie contestants should quite hate the game by now (since u dont watch tv, they get eliminated via a s&l board), poor shmucks!!

EISI - eh we lack the macho gene ....

eye-in-sty-in said...
