Dear friends brought these tulips to our home for a Game Night last Friday. Our weather has been a tad rainy and gloomy, so dark inside the house that we’ve had lights on during the day. But these TULIPS! They’ve been sharing a light of their own. The metaphor is not lost on me. I am grateful for light from unexpected sources.
Last night we finished our Game Night 2019 season. Nine game nights, with one postponed due to a snowstorm (!), brought us from January 18th to the first day of spring, through the darkest part of the year, with merriment and challenge to look forward to each Friday night.
This year we added three nights with Crew Two. Last night, these were our game players for a night themed Harmony & Understanding, featuring the years 1968-1972 in the US. We identified icon scenes and events from the era. We played Name That Tune with songs like Chain of Fools, Mony, Mony, and Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves. There was a Celebrity Box Stacking game in which this Crew got every single clue right. We wrote captions for New Yorker cartoons and shared a Trippy Encounter Session.
Big thanks to Crew Two and Crew One and the extraordinary Game Masters. Aren’t Crew Two’s hippie homage costumes fun? And a little later in the evening, Mike shared his musician alter ego. I am so grateful to everyone who takes part in Game Night, getting us through the winter!
