My kid just kicked my ass at Uno! (Read 709 times)

    First time he's ever played (he'll be 7 in a month). So much for thinking I'd let him win the first time around. Kid picked it up fast and then was a sore winner about it "I won, you're loser...Look at my prize, you're a loser who sits and cries!" (I don't even know where he learned that...little snot-nosed punk) Tongue k

    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

      My 8 year old loves UNO. It's really the only game where she can play me competively. Now we have UNO Attack but I think the regular UNO is more fun.

        What is Uno Attack? I seem to remember seeing that. Is it a board game? Uno is so nice, since it's easy to store and portable. I fondly remember playing that with my grandparents when I was about Dane's age. Smile

          In UNO attack instead of cards like "Draw Four", you have to push the button on the UNO Attack card launcher and it may or may not spit cards out at you. Other than that it plays the same.

            Last night my kids (8 & 10) and I played Life and it was SO hilarious to see my daughter go to college and then pay off all her debt as soon as she had money and then my son, who chose not to go to college, invest ALL of his money every time we had the opportunity to "spin to win!" I kept picturing how they'd be as grown-ups. They looked at money so differently! It is so fun to watch your offspring act like themselves! Smile Jilly PS I did win the game though.

              We love UNO! We also have UNO Stacko, which is a blast! You can only use one hand to try to get the blocks out so we usually end up laughing our way through the game.

                Oh, I have to check out these other Uno games! Life would be a fun one, too. I love that Dane is finally old enough to play games that don't bore me to tears. Slamwich is a good game, too. Smile k

                      Uno Attack is great. Puts a 6 y/o in giggles!

                        Slamwich is a good game, too.
                        Totally agree. We've had that for years and just had a couple more fun games of it over the holiday break. I was amazed that the kids hadn't lost all the cards after having it so long. KerPlunk is also a family favorite. My youngest (she's 8) still loves "The Allowance Game". The rest of us - not so much.

                        When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

                          Classics games when I was young. Spades Spoons (or many of the alternatives) Speed (any of the alternatives) Clue (Master Detective) Phase 10 UNO (geek-er stuff) Space Marine ADD Gurps Car Wars Guerilla *************************************************************************************************************** Game I've Played Lately My current favorite card game is Colossal Arena... cheap $10 betting game... Last cool (out of print) game I played was Betrayal on Haunted Hill.... classic... Even this kid though it was fun Another classic is Wizwar, but I only got to play it once.

                            Last time, I played Life I came in second taking the college route. The winner took the other route, and didn't have kids, but they did end up have a grandchild!!! Big grin

                              You kid is warped. I like that! Big grin This is another game that we need to pick up. We've played it with friend and it's a hoot. The car theme would definitely go over well with the didlet, too:

                                Mille Bornes is a very well designed game that serves to piss me off royally almost every time we play it. I love the game, but I never seem to be on the winning team. Go. Accident. Repair. Stop. Go. Out of Gas. Gas Tank. Go. Flat Tire. Game Over. Bullshit. Evil grin
