Project 52: Quest (board game)

I’m not sure I can fully communicate my chagrin when Nathan informed me that we would be “doing a quest” for our date together.  The quest is for a role playing board game called Hero Quest, and is definitely not my cup of tea.  I was feeling all kinds of grumpy little gremlins in my tummy when I thought of how this date experience might turn out.  He sensed my unease and asked me if we should change our date, but I did my best to put on a happy face, as this is Nathan’s favourite game ever.  Notice the wine glass?  That helped me get through it!

OK, so let me explain a bit.  I am generally not a fan of any board games.  There are a few that I surprisingly really enjoy, but aside from Settlers of Catan and the like, I would rather be cleaning toilets than playing games.. and this especially applies to anything that resembles a role playing type game. *shudder*  So I think I did pretty good during our date in not running out in a stomping fit or something (and the toilets still need to be cleaned, so yes, I did play the game!)

I got to be 3 of the 4 characters.  Nathan was the 4th and also controlled the map and everything.. so needless to say, he caused some problems along the way.  There were goblins and mummies and chaos warriors and I’m sure there were other terrible creatures that I had to destroy (well, I being the wizard, the barbarian and the elf).  We made it to the end without too much loss.. and hey, I survived the ordeal too!  I can’t say I’ll ever be looking forward to this game in the future, but it wasn’t too terrible of an experience as our date, and it made Nathan super happy. 

Check out my other dates and take a look at the original project 52 at Simply Modern Mom’s site.  She’s got a listing of her dates as well as links to others’ who are involved in the project like me!

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

    Way to take one for the team. I keep waiting for my hubby to set up a date night reloading shell casings or cleaning guns. LOL.

    Yeah, if he’s in heaven, then maybe it’s legal to call it a date.
