Five Ball’s birthday was “to the nines”, or as near to perfect as any 9th birthday could be. The birthday boy decided to spend most of the day at his favorite game store. If you are a fan of board games, role playing games, or card games then Guardian Games is definitely a place that you want to check out when in the Northwest. They have a massive selection of games, gaming supplies, and a huge space for game play. Five Ball first fell in love with this store last April and was completely thrilled to spend his birthday there today.
One of the best parts about Guardian Games is that they let you try out games from their well stocked collection at one of the many tables that they have set up in store. This is a great way to try out new games, or check out a game before buying your own copy. Today we chose to play Ghostbusters: The Board Game. This adventure game allows four players to fight Slimer, The Marshmellow Man, and other spirits in a variety of scenarios. The kids had a great time getting slimmed, firing proton streams, and banishing spirits.
Before leaving Guardian Games Five Ball picked out his birthday present. Being a huge Dungeons and Dragons fan he knew he wanted a present that included rogues, wizards, and lots of monsters. He wasn’t disappointed with his choice of the game Dungeon! created by Wizards of the Coast. As soon as we returned home the game was opened and taken out for a lengthy test spin. It was quickly decided that this is a fabulous board game for D&D fans and it made our birthday boy fantastically happy.
After battling ghosts and monsters all day we had all worked up an impressive appetite and were ready to sit down for a birthday meal. Five Ball had just enough energy left to blow out his candles with amazing force and polish off a sizable piece of raspberry chocolate mouse pie. We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day for our rogue at heart (he has definitely stolen all of our heart’s).
