Holiday board games

Uncle Keith is visiting, so board games it is!  Last night we played Shadows over Camelot…a neat cooperative board game that involves a lot of multitasking.  We just barely pulled off a win.  Today, we played several rounds of Escape: The Curse of the Temple.    This one was an interesting cooperative 10-minute game involving a CD playing audio queues for timing and frantic dice rolling.  I’d almost call it an action board game.  It rewards thinking fast and observing fast.  We had to cheat and remove some room tiles from the deck before we could win…maybe we’re just not fast enough.  Anyway, it was playable for 9-year-olds, which was fun.
