Do you Blokus?

So, with one son home sick, we've been playing lots of board games. Some of our favorites are Sequence, Scrabble, Monopoly, Sorry and Blokus.

Blokus is an awesome strategy game for all ages. Our youngest son, Remy, starting playing it when he was five years old. The rules take about a minute to explain, very simple and straightforward. The game was invented by a frenchman named Bernard Taritian who is a mathematician and biochemist.

The color blue always goes first...and when my son Donny is the color blue, he always wins! (He wins a lot as other colors also) We have now banned him from being blue. Unfair but true.

Remy saw The Simpsons version of Monopoly at a local Wal-Mart or Target store recently and really wants it. Of course, since then I haven't seen it anywhere, although I'm sure I could find it online.

Other things the sick flu child has been doing when he feels up for it are coloring and watching movies. We print coloring pages off the Internet of his favorite TV show characters.
