March 8th: THE Game

Last Saturday night, the sixth, the Pratts, Casey and Tabby Smith, and I were invited to the apartment of Ron and Evelyn McFarland on the south campus. The McFarlands have been teaching on that campus for three years now. They had fixed chili, pasta, salad, and jello for us. After we ate together, we got down to the real business of the get-together: Settlers of Catan.

It’s a rather complicated board game, involving building roads, settlements, and town at strategic points on the board, and gaining resources of wood, brick, rock, sheep, and wheat. It seems that this is the game of choice among our Friends here, and the McFarlands and Smiths took it upon themselves to prepare the Pratts and I for tournaments among the brothers and sisters. Mr. Wong claims to be addicted to it. I enjoyed the game, and I look forward to playing again.

Dear Katy

I have to blend out the words fascinating, enchanting and mesmerizing as well just to describe your blog.
I would be honored not only with a single visit but also with the possibility of having your name on our friend's group.

I am gleeful that you are learning a great deal about their culture and past time entertainment. It will be a great thing when you can become all things to many people.
You already have a tremendous personality.
To bad that all of these interesting games are too many to bring home.
I guess that you will have to choose your favorites or most memorable ones.
