I’ve learned that being thankful for what you have is the only way to be happy. Taking care of what you have (being a good steward), is the only way to get what you are dreaming of. If you want a nicer car, you have to take care of the one you have now. If you want a bigger, nicer home, you have to be thankful for the one you have now. If you want a better job, you better be doing your best at the one you have now. If you want more money, you have to spend what you have now wisely. That’s just how the universe works. Be thankful and you will be blessed.
We played Wits and Wagers a couple of years ago at this cool little spot in Albuquerque that is a coffee shop with board games to play (Empire Board Game Library on Central). We liked the game so much, we bought it and also gave the game to some family members as gifts this last Christmas. My oldest daughter, Shelby (who doesn’t generally like to play board games with us), recently asked for us to get it for them for Christmas next year (which might just have to happen before then). It’s easy enough for anyone middle-school aged and up to play, and the variety of subjects evens the playing field – as in no one can possibly know all of the vastly different questions. That’s what makes it fun! This game gets at “thumbs-up” from our family!
