PARCHESSI ANYONE?


How about a rousing game of Parchessi? My folks used to call it "Oh No". I guess that's because we would say that as we were knocked back to the starting point.
Have fun this weekend. Maybe you can find time to play a game or two with the family.

Happy weekend to you too, Sue!
We will get more play-mates ( can I say like that ? ) next weekend, when my children`s families will start their holidays. And they will come and go during whole summer. It will be nice, but after two months a little also tiring :))

Love the colour and texture of the dice - they remind me of our traditional English boiled sweets!

Annie said...

Oh, Sue, since I don't know about Parcheesi, let's get up a foursome and play some canasta! Or you could teach me parcheesi.

Dsole said...

wow, I have never seen a parchessi like this before, with holes in the wood. I like it very much!
Here the weather is a mess so maybe it's a good idea to enjoy some game like that with our people!
Have a great weekend, the photo is cool! :)

That photo is a wonderful reminder of sitting around the table with our children, playing games.

A group of us Sweet Adelines get together occasionally for board games...always a good time.

I love this picture! We have too many people here, though, to play many games. :)

Parceesi is a game I have never learned. I'm not a great fan of playing cards either, but I absolutely adore a family game of Monopoly!

What a great shot Sue! I love it - very vibrant with color...sort of makes me want to come on over and play a game. :)
