One great thing about 2012 is…

… board games.

Sure there are other great things, like having met some new people, having some new great friends, and having solidified some other friendships a bit better. But my love of both the social aspect of board gaming and the mental aspect of learning new games and game mechanics has really helped me through frustrating times both emotional and otherwise, has helped me be a happier person and generally has helped me have a great time! 🙂

Last night was no exception! We played Tsuro (and no I didn't win), and 7 Wonders (didn't win at that either, but performed respectfully while trying out a few new strategies and cards that I hadn't played with, really).
