I could NEVER get them all!
This is INCREDIBLE! I totally forgot about Encarta Maze! I loved that one! And of course, Oregon trail.
Played a game of Clue with the family tonight.
And as always…. I ended up the killer again. :(
Ok, how many kids can say they’ve never played with Legos? Not many, that’s for sure. My brother and I LOVED Legos. We’d combine sets like this castle one with pirates or city sets just for the heck of it. We’d make up stories for our characters, places they’d go, people they’d meet, and have entire worlds just for our lego people.
We had an ocean set that we’d combine with a city set (policemen, construction, etc.) to create a vacation resort or a crime scene, and we could play for hours.
I’m going to do a couple of Lego posts if I can find the exact sets we had. I’m excited because when I go to LA in August, I really want to stop at Legoland. It’s super expensive, so I dunno if it’ll happen, but I’d love to be able to go there.
And here’s some more Legos pics, just for the heck of it. :)

So, if you ever played with Legos, which were your favorite sets or pieces?
Chutes and Ladders!
I have seen many a variation on this classic game, (also called Snakes and Ladders, I recently learned,) however this is the board I used to play on.
For those living under a rock, Chutes and Ladders is a board game in which you attempt to get all the way to the finish line (space #100) before your opponent(s). Sounds easy, right? WRONG! Some of the spaces on the board game have either good or bad results when you land on them. For example, if you were to land on space #28, you would climb the ladder to space #84 - yay! Closer to the finish line! However, if you were the unlucky chum who happened to land on space #87 - you can pretty much kiss your chances of winning “goodbye” because you have to slide allllll the way back down to #24.
Chutes and Ladders is played with a spinner instead of dice and the numbers are still 1-6. I guess spinners are fun, except after you play the game for too long and break the spinning arrow, or rip up the cheap cardboard it’s mounted on… But, overall this game is awesome!
So many memories of playing with my whole family as a kid. Did you have or play Chutes and Ladders?
