Meet the newest member of my collection!

So... my wife and I made a trip up to IKEA on Friday afternoon. We looked as Kallax shelves but decided that my current storage solution was adequate enough for right now and that we didn’t need to invest in additional shelving right now. 

After IKEA we hopped over to the Mall of America for supper and to walk around. We played a game of mini golf and had quite the pleasant time. On a whim, I suggested that we stop by a board game shop. To my surprise, my wife agreed. 

Inside the game shop I was stunned to see multiple copies of Root, as well as both boxed expansions, in stock. We walked around the shop a bit and to my stunned surprise my wife asks if I want to buy a copy of Root. 

I didn’t hesitate! We purchased the game and headed out! My wife can definitely be surprising. 

I am now a very proud owner of Root! And I can’t wait to play it!

So many amazing things happened. 1. My wife offered to let me buy a board game. 

2. Root was in stock! And they had it reasonably priced.

3. My wife wasn’t upset with me for buying it!

I'm looking forward to your report on this. Do you plan on playing it solo with the better bot project?

Also, when can we expect your #Star Wars: Outer Tim review?

Supporter8 months ago

Yes, I will definitely print out the better bot project. 

Expect Tim to be along forthwith.

Nice!! What a great trade-off lol

Did your wife know that you've wanted it? Or did she show interest in it as well?

Supporter8 months ago

Oh, she commented on the artwork. But beyond that she wasn’t interested . I had told her how lucky it was to see a copy at retail.

Ah, I see haha. Great that she was being considerate toward your hobby :)
