Great Game......for some

Let me just go on the record as saying this game drove me CRAZY!! 

My mind just does not work this way and I can't force it to.

However, my family LOVED the game.  I think they all got their brains from their dad!

It's called Tangram Master.  The object is to be the first one to make the design on the page with the different shaped pieces you have.  You must use all the pieces.

Sound easy?  Take a look........



It looks very serious.......and it was!  It's also not as easy as it looks.  If I tried to cheat get help by looking in the back, I got yelled at!!!  Loudly!

So I just quit and took the pictures and cheered everyone else on!!!

Here's a little video to give you the full picture.... and I apologize ahead of time for my son who "tooted" on camera....boys!

video

Now, if you saw these pictures and watched this video and thought "that looks like a great game"..........

...............you're sick!  Just like the rest of my family!!!!!

It's nice that he admitted to it. I never even heard it.

I got as travel version of tangrams for Noah for Christmas and got so frustrated that I gave up. He uses the answers and plays with it for hours.

??? I missed it. (the toot i.e.)

I would have cheated too -- only PRIOR to anyone seeing me do so. I NEVER play a game I know I can't figure out. It's how I've fooled people for 46 years!!!! (Ask my brother)
hehehehehe

I would have played SkipBo with you in the other room if I were there. You can't win mind-games with people under age 30.

My girl would love this game. She had a tangram page-a-day calendar a couple of years ago.

I prefer word games like Scrabble or Taboo!

I'm sick! That looked like fun! :)

I've never heard o this one before, but your video was too cute. I missed the toot, but it cracked me up that he told you he did it and no one else even reacted to it. How funny!!

Sara, I gotta tell you that didn't look fun at all! Not one bit.
I laughed at the "I tooted."
My kids say that too!

LuAnn said...

Sara- Way to much for me. Give me some cards and lets play "Go Fish".

Looks like a lot of fun, thanks for sharing.

Just like you, I think that I'd choose to work the camera rather than play.

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

I got frustrated just watching them play. That would not be the kind of game for me...my brain doesn't work like that either!

Edwina at The Picket Fence said...

Too funny, I think I will stick to checkers.

I think I am too old for that! :(
