Now why didn't I hear about this before? Living in Columbus these past ten years meant giving up a long-standing family tradition of clearing off the table and breaking out the Uno cards. Now I have a small collection of such classics as Othello, Stratego, and Parcheesi and having nobody to play with.

Love, love, love the After Turkey Day Game Fest, and it is definitely something I miss about living in Columbus.

I, too, have a closet full of board games but now since my son is off to college I have no one to play them with. Trivial Pursuit (3 different ones!), Monopoly, Life, etc.

With much cooler games, too :D
No games where people are getting knocked out (like Monopoly or Risk) and someone gets stuck looking for something to do while everyone else finishes the game...
