On Being Extreme Gamers

Bode has always loved to play games. We’re currently on hiatus from board and card games (but I’m sure they’ll resume when we have more time in the summer). He loves mazes these days and I bought him a book with hundreds of mazes and word games.

The other day, he came in to play hangman with me. I found myself holding my breath every time he asked me to play and I couldn’t figure out why I was feeling little pangs of anxiety.

Then it dawned on me: playing hangman with a kid who can’t spell. It’s the extreme version of gaming.
