Louis has just discovered the game, and being a business minded chap it's now a favourite pastime. I procured our board for a rather reasonable £2.99 from a Mutley Plain charity shop. Someone had been having a clearout and there were about six different versions in the store. Those newcomers didn't tempt me. Old stick-in-the-mud plumped for the original and British best!
What with the playing cards that Lou has taken to carrying around , we seem to be getting back to the old days and revisiting a childhood that's familiar to me. Sure, the electronic gadgetry is still in evidence but my son has got a real penchant for a good old fashioned parlour game. And perhaps whilst the going is good I can introduce my dyslexic son with his aversion to all things that might allude to spelling to my own personal favourite. Why it's Scrabble of course!
