So yeah, this happened! Willow decided to ramp up the difficulty of the game by lying on the cards!
We lost 2 turns later. Clearly the cats fault….
My son decided to celebrate his seventh birthday with a boardgame party. After much consideration we came up with the title “Martin’s Meeple Madness.” In preparation for his friends coming over, the whole family worked together to build a snowmeeple to greet everyone.
We decked out the dining room for the party and I made him a meeple cake (in yellow, his standard token color). His dad got Forbidden Island prepped and ready.
Martin even picked out a special character meeple for each of his friend to use while playing Forbidden Island and then take home as a favor.
Since we were also sending everyone home with their own copy of Dino Hunt Dice, we played through it so they’d learn the game and teach their families. We used their character meeples as point trackers and they had so much fun. It was truly a pleasure playing boardgames with my son’s friends and to enjoy their smiles and laughter.
