Happy Thanksgiving too! Got back home last night and will be hopefully taking it easy for the rest of the break haha. My wife and I got in two different games with her brother and sister-in-law. Started off with Just One (1st round we scored 1 point.... and immediately played our 2nd game and got 5 points!). We also played Catan (it was the first time for both me and my wife). I enjoyed it but I could see what everyone means by how luck driven the game is. Also, I think it took around 3 hours long haha

It was a fun day today, got a game of Catan (my first time), Architects of the West Kingdom and Marvel Champions. Had to take my son to the ER for some stitches after a dog accident, but other than that it was a good day.
I also got in my first game of Catan! How did you like it?
Ouch. I feel like I'd panic if my son went through something like that (my son's now at a point--16 months old now--where I'm going to have to start expecting him to get hurt pretty frequently lol)

He was cool as a cucumber, my wife (who's a nurse) poo poo'd it. Then it opened up and he bled all down his neck to his shirt and we brought him in. I've found that the less you panic, the less the child panics. If you're confident, they're confident. It doesn't always work, but it helps a lot.
My first play of Catan was....fine. It was fun because I wanted the person who brought it to feel we enjoyed it so I made sure I got a little goofy. I can see why it's stood the test of time and is heralded as a great gateway game. The thing that got me down on it was it seemed so lucky. Also the guy teaching got lots of rules wrong, so that hurt it. That said, if asked, especially by the person that brought it, I'd play it again.

I’m so thankful! Now I have a huge list of games and no clue what to get.
You can just give your win to me then, haha
