My husband LOVES playing games.
Josh grew up playing pick-up games of football and tag in his family's yard with the neighborhood kids. He also played a lot of video games with his siblings. His family wasn't too big on board games, but they did play the classics like Monopoly and Scrabble from time to time. As he's gotten older, his love for games has grown to include every kind of game imaginable. Board games, strategy games, card games, ball games, yard games, arcade games... if it's a game, he's game. Ha!
Having a husband who enjoys playing every kind of game means I've had to learn how to control my competitiveness a lot. Playing all these games with him and our friends has showed me the ugly truth that I can be a brat if a game isn't going my way. It's been good for me! Games aren't worth getting so worked up about anyhow..
The following is a ton of photographic proof of Josh's love for games:
|Arcade Games - I believe they were playing Tekken. This is his bachelor party! That's how much he loves arcade games. (photo c/o David Smith)|
|Our newlywed game stash, circa early 2011. This has grown considerably since this photo was taken - now we have an entire bookshelf full of games!|
|Pool (Don't mind the off-target cue ball. I told him to shoot it crooked for a joke)|
|Ping-Pong with Jordan!|
|Rack-O (one of our favorite two-player games)|
|Wahoo! (Josh MADE this board! Isn't that awesome?!)|
