Settlers of Catan

Rachel and I played Settlers of Catan the other day, which is a very fun board game. You may not know the rules, but if you look at the board, see if you can tell who won the game. Rachel was red, and I was white.

See how many more red pieces there are on the board? That's right. Rachel won. But I started building a really cool fort. You can see the beginnings of my fort at the bottom.


After Rachel won the game, she laughed sufficiently at me, and then wanted to continue playing even though she had already beat me. So, she moved the robber onto my city and continued to play. Meanwhile, I built my little castle.


By the time Napoleon Rachel got sick of playing this was the awesome fortress I had built with my pieces. It was amazing. I love it.


So Rachel destroyed it.



And took a picture of herself laughing at me. I love my wife...



We are in Chicago. More to come later. Here's a few pictures:

I guess that your being in Chi town would explain your neglecting to return my phone calls this weekend. I was beginning to think that I had in some way, shape or form managed to upset you. I think I want to try this game, however, I will not play with Rachel as she is evil.

I have had my phone on silent all weekend, which has turned out to be a wonderful thing.

Long Live Rach!
