Being a single dad, a lot of my gaming is with my kids. In the weekend, while playing Cat & Fish, I had an epiphany: I DON'T LIKE TO PLAY WITH KIDS! It's time to stand up and speak up! It's time to shout out this secret shame!

Like any true prophet, I will now write down for you, dear readers, the contents of the revelation, formatted, perhaps inappropriately, as a geeklist. With the apostle John I must warn everyone who hears the words of this geeklist: if anyone adds anything to them, God will surely add to him the plagues described herein!

Oh go on then....

I like to play with people who don't always gang up on me.

Anytime I sit down and play a 3 or 4 player game with my kids, it often becomes another version of "Let's Destroy Papa." Regardless of how I may point out that attacking their fellow nose picker is in their best interest, I'm the one who always gets hit with another Moose, Thief, or Poo card.

I like to play with people who don't roll the exact number they need every time.

Actually, this isn't true. I love to see anybody succeed, especially kids. I get a big grin on my face when their eyes light up like Christmas trees as their plan comes together.
