Cards and Dominoes

I'm at home with Things One and Two while the Little Lady is away to the doctor. Halp!

This weekend we played Gin every night. We used to play cards and dominoes, especially Sniff, all the time before Thing One hit the scene. The groom's cake at our wedding was in the shape of a domino, actually. A lot of people don't know how many games there are to play with a set of dominoes. If you like games, I recommend you find out. Sniff especially is amazingly rich--about on par with gin, a lot of room for strategy and tactics, if you like to puzzle it out, and a lot of room for chance if you don't.

Anyway, it's really good to get back to it. Other games we enjoy include Rummikub, Scrabble, and a Canasta variant, suitable for two-handed play, called Samba.
