Project 52: Trouble!

No, I haven't stumbled at the first hurdle and quit the Project 52 challenge!  I actually haven't posted about last week's project yet because I wanted to keep the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal post top of the list until I'd worked out another way of making it prominent on my site.  That done, I can let you know what I've been up to.

At last year's school fete we scored the kids game Trouble for $3 (brand new - what a bargain).  I wonder if they got complaints about their packaging or if their lawyers told them to put on the disclaimer that 'pieces do not fly out during play'.  However I'm betting in most families the pieces have gone flying when one of the younger householders discovered that they weren't doing as well in the game as they liked!  We usually play in pairs because playing with the Kinderboy is impossible - he sends the pieces flying even if he is winning, or tries to move everyone's pieces but his own.  The Schoolboy is intent on becoming the World Trouble Master though and keeps a tally of the number of games that he's won (19 at last count).  On Thursday night both the Man and I played with him after the Kinderboy had gone to bed.  It was the first time that the three of us had played at the same time, and it was fantastic.  No tanties or dummy-spits but all-out competition and plenty of laughs.  I can't remember who won, but the fun had all round and the special moment it created for the Schoolboy (who got to stay up late to play) was worthy of crossing off No. 33 on the list.
