Guillotine: Gaming Notes

As you may be aware, my wife and I recently welcome a new baby into the world - Mary Elizabeth. But what does one do when you're stuck in the hospital for days on end with nothing to do? Well... game! We brought along two very portable games... Settlers of Catan Dice Game and the card game Guillotine.

When my wife and I played Guillotine, I ended up winning. The goal is to get the highest score. My strategy was simple - avoid all negative cards at all costs and collect Palace Guards which grow in value the more of them you have. Final score? 50 (me) to 36 (my wife). So, I got to name the kid. Just kidding, of course. About the naming rights, that is, not about winning. =)
