If you know our family, you know we LOVE playing games, especially hard core games that involve physical contact! :) Somehow, every/any game we play winds up with someone bleeding, bruised or scratched. We've had nails broken and bent back, blood dripping, bruises that are 6 inches long and last for weeks...it's brutal I tell ya, but we wouldn't trade it for anything. We love playing "Dutch Blitz" (a fast-paced card game...the favorite), "Spoons" (another fast-paced card game involving spoons...this can get brutal!), a new game called "Perudo" (a game from Peru which involves bluffing) and "Apples to Apples", not to mention good, old "Mad Gab". Tons of fun.
Dean (bro-in-law) and Nate (my little brother) going at it, fighting for the last spoon! This IS a family game folks, I promise! :)
