Our New Decision

Kevin and I have always loved games. For the past 12 years our favorite game has been Rook. We would stay up until 2:00 in the morning playing. When Courtney was a baby she would stay up late with us. (Maybe not that late) We had our favorite Rook partners, which was my mom, and Colleen. We would play almost every night that Kevin was off. If we was not playing with our favorite partners then we had many of our other friends down to play. Some times people did not like to play Rook with Kevin and I if we was on teams. We was very good at it. I don't mean that to brag, but we was really good. Rook was our hobby. All our friends knew how much we liked to play. When we started the adoption for Brooke we slowed down on our games. Once Brooke came home we did not play hardly at all. We still played, but not like we did in the past. We just did not have the time that we once had. Since we don't play as much as we used to, we are not as good as we used to be.
About a month ago we went to visit KellyandChris. They wanted to introduce us to a new game that Kelly's dad was making. When they first showed us the board and the cards we was both thinking "We much rather be playing Rook" To be honest Kevin and I was both dreading on learning to play this game. It did not look fun, and it seemed like to many things to remember.

Boy was we wrong. WE LOVED IT. We was so hooked. We came home and I could not sleep because I wanted to play the wonderful game of Tuck. I was so desperate to play that I called

KellyandChris the next day and ask if they wanted to come to our house and play. They did, and we had another fun night. This game is not on the market yet. Kelly's dad is still making them. We called Kelly and told her to order us one. We have a temporary board for now. We have played that game so much. We have already wore one deck of cards out. Courtney even likes it.

Tonight we played Rook with my mom and Colleen. As soon as they walked out the door, Kevin looked at me and said " I have decided one thing." I said "What"

Kevin said " I like Tuck better than Rook" I agree with him. I never thought we would say we liked any game over Rook.

Kelly make sure you tell you dad how much we love the game. He has done great with it.

I am glad you guys have an outlet to have fun that you enjoy.
Danny and I used to play a few card games back pre 3 preschoolers!
Never as much as you and Kevin, but we did occasionally enjoy a game.
Hope your back heals speedily this week,
