I recall playing Checkers, King Corners,Chinese Checkers , Connect Four, Hi Ho Cherry Oh, Trouble, Candylane was a fav of my kids I went through so so many boxes of those. chutes and Ladders, along with all the classics like Monopoly they even made a Hawaiian version which I never had the pleasure of getting it was so expensive and limited edition. Remember the Game Sorry? Operation , pick up sticks , Jacks . Double Dutch Opps I left the boards lol any of you played Chinese jumping rope I think they were called.

I do remember the game, Sorry. It's a fun one; we still have it. Our oldest DD always wins at that game. Can't figure it out. She's very good at the strategy, but most of it is the luck of the draw. It's funny how she's most often the winner.

Anyone remember Battleship? My brother always wanted to play that one.

The game Sorry was a classic with a few of our foster kids! I almost used it for challenge...but I didn't want to start on a sad note.

We had an 8 year old who was almost unstoppable in that game!

We played a lot of Sorry, Kim and Diane. I still like that one. There were a few we played with our oldest brother- Battleship, Risk, and Stratego. The only one I could maybe win by accident was Stratego. Othello was another fun one.

I remember one Christmas, we bought Pay Day, and the kids played it throughout their entire school break! We joked about it...you have to take out a lot of loans in the beginning to buy businesses. We told the kids, "Don't manage your money like this in real life!"




We also played LIFE quite a bit, and it was always fun to see the kids "build" their careers and families.


Yahtzee was another favorite, and we still play it when e visit my mom. I swear she has amazing luck in that game. She is our family's Yahtzee Queen!
I love the Payday game. It was my favorite as a kid.

I love playing battleship with my boyfriend. He has yet to beat me. So we don't play it often.

Anyone remember Mastermind? That was a favorite of mine. We also played Gambler a lot when I was a kid. My grandma liked to play Gin and Rummy card games. So I played a lot of that with her when I was a kid.

It’s amazing how many we named so far and still many we havnt some I can’t even recall but remembered them being out there. Like Jinga,uno, operation,picturenary, I remember that game so well over the years. One Xmas we got it for my kids and my 3 younger BIL and Youngest SIL got in with my kids to play and the word was something other then he was role playing for the life of use we could not figure why no one could get it right . Till time was over and everyone saw the word and all broke into a huge ball of laughter and the look on my BIL’s shameful face was priceless. And every time we bring up that game around him everyone looks at him and just rolls laughing so hard. And till this day he is still so ashamed and red faced when mentioned lol oh and that how do you spell that spooky ghost board game? And spin the bottle , Opps not a board game but a game everyone played or plays. There are way to many card games I played rummy , gin rummy , hearts, spades, trumps, something we call paiyoith, there’s pepeto, poker, acrylic dicey,so many.

Visiting my mom in SC...played 3 games of Yahtzee last night. Mom, hubby, and I each won one. Friendly, right?



Went to see a movie this afternoon (Murder on the Orient Express) ...came home for dinner, then had time for one game of Yahtzee before mom sat down to watch the finale of DWTS. Bruce won the game tonight. Mom's Yahtzee Queen status is in jeopardy!


I'm heading to the gallery again to see new entries. Hope we get even more!

Thank you for the reminder! I made my cards before Thanksgiving and haven't photographed or posted them yet! I just realized four grand-kids will be here next weekend. I probably won't be able to participate. I'd insert a frowning emoji if I knew how! Love the grand-kids but why next weekend?

Hi Dianne,

I understand! Why THIS weekend. The grandkids are certainly the priority. I have good news for you! You will have a catch up week. Everything must be uploaded by Dec 17th. You should have time to play with the VSN Challenges, unless the grands are staying for a week! Maybe you can even get them involved in some of the challenges. Check it out. Starts Friday, 12-8-17 at 3:00 pm EST.


Be sure to upload the three challenges from the preview before the start of the main event.


Have fun with the kids!

Yay for the sneak peeks! I can work on those cards tomorrow! The theme for this VSN is awesome - so many challenges can be tied into this. I am excited to see what the full VSN will reveal for us stampers.

I love this theme! I'm pretty a competitive player. LOL! my hubby and I play cards with our neighbors across the street just about every Monday night. My hubby owns a gaming shop, where people come in to play RPG's (MTG & D&D), board games and solve a puzzle room.

Well, Bunco just got cancelled (it was supposed to be this Friday night) and is it wrong I am relieved, as I REALLY wanted to participate in VSN. Saturday is still iffy as my 7th grader is going to her first dance and of course the girls all want to get ready together so I will have a lot of driving and picture taking to do (I am excited for her, not complaining at all).

Three pre-challenges? I have to look again....I thought there was only two. Three would be a great - I need a reason to stamp!

And while we are on the theme of games...my mother, grandmother, youngest daughter and I played Scrabble Sunday afternoon and my mom always uses these weird two-letter words that NO ONE has ever heard of, but they are in the Scrabble dictionary so it's allowed. It drives me NUTS because she always wins due to those obscure two-letter words! I am thinking I need to memorize the list of them so that I can win sometimes LOL! Does anyone else play Scrabble and do you use these crazy words?

There were 3 challenges from the mini & 2 sneak peeks.

My grandma used to do the same thing with Scrabble, she always beat us!

It drives me NUTS because she always wins due to those obscure two-letter words! I am thinking I need to memorize the list of them so that I can win sometimes LOL! Does anyone else play Scrabble and do you use these crazy words?


DD and I have always played Scrabble. Now our she and her family live over a thousand miles from us, and we only see each other twice a year if we are lucky. We always try to get a couple of Scrabble games in when we see each other. Her son started playing with us at a young age and now at 17 beats us a lot. They will be here at Christmas and we will squeeze some games in for sure! We keep a two letter cheat sheet for all the letters on table that came with our game. I dont know which words you are referring to and I dont have game out; but we use that cheat cheat a lot when playing!

I loved playing Scrabble with my DH and his parents. We did that every week for years. Miss those times!

I have had quite a week and just finished dinner, when I thought, "Oh no! VSN started an hour ago!!"

Then I realized it's only Thursday. Sigh.


Someone needs a nap!

Ok remind me when does it start tomorrow and how many challenges for each day?? I like planning ahead...or at least wrapping my mind around what I might be doing...

I'm not a huge game player..I did play all the usual childhood board games but I guess I played outside more and also I was a big Barbie fan. My favorite game is probably Crazy Eights, the card game...I still love it as an adult..easy to play when you're having a little libation I actually did both sneak peeks today...I usually just look at them and don't do them ahead..

We will have 5 challenges on Friday evening (Tomorrow! LOL) starting at 5 pm Eastern time.

Then, on Saturday, there will be 11 challenges! We start at Noon Eastern time with a kid friendly challenge, then 10 "regular" ones. Though I know I will have fun with the kiddie challenge...very nostalgic for me.


A few reminders...or perhaps new info for our newcomers...


There are no VSN police! We just encourage everyone to complete each project in one hour, regardless of when you start. (In other words, you don't have to do them "Live" or in order) You don't have to do them all, though there are 3 goodie prize drawings for those who do (including the preview challenges from Nov 17)!


The upload-to-gallery-deadline is Sunday December 17th @ 10:00 pm Eastern.


Clear off your desk/table/counter...cut and fold your card bases...stock up on your chocolate...it's almost time!!
