My wife played Scythe with me!!

Out of the blue today Becky says, "I'll play Scythe with you if you want."  I'm guessing it's more an effect of being quarantined for so long that she finally was ok with learning Scythe.  Perhaps it was having seen me play with friend so often that it felt less foreign and more approachable for her?  Perhaps it was all the other games I'd plied her with prior that finally created enough of a crack in the door for her to be open to the #Scythe experience.  She even seemed somewhat open to playing with other down the road (albeit likely with masks and gloves).

As a gamer getting by on a little Tabletopia and a little Tabletop Simulator here and there, this was a great victory at my house!

Becky beat me 53 - 86

What a beautiful reality! I have had this happen with my wife and it is so great hearing her say she is open to playing a game I never thought she would be!

Nice! Always good when they agree to play and then win. At least for me, it makes it easier to get my wife to play that game again haha

Quite true!  I have been able o beat her consistently at #Wingspan#Heaven & Ale I haven't been able to beat her for the last 5-6 games we've played.

My wife always smokes me at Wingspan. I'll keep taking it though if it means I get to keep playing haha

This is fantastic! 

My wife has been spending her time doing other projects. She is making tons of cloth masks for family members. She is doing a light remodel of the kids’ bathroom. She bought a new dishwasher.

Becky spends most of the week teaching our kids, posting assignments for her fourth graders, mowing the lawn, trying to cook with the remnants of our pantry, and sitting through required administration meetings that accomplish very little.  I think Scythe may have been easy for her by comparison.

No kidding! My wife usually handles teaching duties too. But she isn’t also a teacher, so she avoids that one.

That's a nice bump up from PARKS and Wingspan! Glad to hear it worked out really well. I take it that it was 2p only without an automa? Sounds like she had no trouble with handling it :)

That is awesome! I love it when my wife asks to play a game haha. And I love it even more when she beats me!
