The Grown-Up Army Game!

Owen has been begging Michael to teach him how to play Axis & Allies for quite a while now. A little over a week ago Michael took down the game and played with him using the little maps. This makes no sense to me since I've never played the game, but that's what he said. Last Saturday Owen's persistence paid off and Michael played the whole game with the boys. 

I was in the next room making soup and bread for my Stampin' Up Party that was happening later that night. I was busy doing things and I felt bored for Jack! The poor kid picking the United States as his country and from what Michael said that is the most boring country to play and you are the last country that gets to go in each round. Poor kid! Each countries turn takes forever...I mean at least 10 minutes. 

Surprisingly Owen only tried to quit once and that was about 30 minutes before the game was over. He did tell us that he's not going to let his kids play this game until they're 12! In all the whole game took 2 1/2 hours!!!! Michael did great! He never got upset at the boys and they did have fun. Michael said it was a bit tiring because he was having to do everything. You'd think that know that Owen knows what's involved that he wouldn't want to play again for a while....nope! He's actually asking more often now!
