A year of writing a little bit of everything. Writers Write, Right?

at first i thought she was just being nicezi…


A friend sent us home from our weekend down south with a new game. It was a thank you for hosting her family in our home a few weeks ago. It was completely unnecessary, but so sweet and thoughtful, true to her character.

Or so I thought.

See, this friend happens to also be one with whom I am in fierce competition for a virtual trophy and bragging rights to end all bragging rights. The competition has to do with a Fitbit and a monthly step calculation and I’m only bringing this up again so that you will see my point.

This new game, Tenzi, is soooo addicting. Whilst I type this, my children, who are supposed to be brushing their teeth in preparation for devotions and bedtime, are sitting at the table playing, and I don’t even mind because I know that I would be right there with them if I weren’t here with you.

There is really only one rule to this game but you can purchase a deck of 77 additional twists and turns to make the game more interesting (which said friend of course did.)

Here’s the thing…no where in this game is walking involved. We did stand on one foot at one point, but I don’t think I got a whole lotta steps out of that. There is however much noise making, movie quoting, and other such nonsense going on. Again, no steps.

Well played, Dear Friendzi, well played.


Oh, and also, my kids keep messing up the name of the game and calling out, “Jumanji,” every time they win. Hilarious!

Thank you…I think…zi!

  1. Awww…. that friend ( I bet) did not even think of how it would keep you from gaining steps!

  2. looks like I need to set about finding that game! sounds like fun

  3. So funny. Well, I guess if you all are going to have an addiction….that sounds like a safe one 🙂

  4. hmmmmm…. sounds really fun.
    what ages of kids can play, would you say?

    • The directions say ages 7 and up, but we let the 4 year old play and just alter the rules a bit…instead of rolling 10 dice, she would only roll 4. Then we just creatively switch it up for any game cards that ask us to do something that would be too difficult for her.

your comments are better than eating chocolate in a hammock on a 70 degree day...almost
