Coffee At Steve’s Country #67.

Good morning everyone and Happy Monday! It’s another beautiful morning here and you’re just in time to have some coffee and join Muffin and I for awhile and relax. Muffin is really looking forward to seeing you all again today (so am I) and sitting here checking her little list to see who she will sit with today. She likes to be organized so she doesn’t miss someone. Good thing one of us is organized around here. I kind of do things sort of, at random. Probably not the best way to do things, but it works. Hmm, Muffin is rolling her eyes again. Saturday night she woke me saying it’s time for breakfast. Already? I get up, feels like I just went to bed. I look at the clock. 11 pm. I just went to bed at 10 pm. No wonder I’m still tired. It’s not time for breakfast I told her. Okay, she says, midnight snack then, let’s go. She actually was hungry and finished off her food rather quickly.

Let’s Look at More Games Today:

The Game of Finance. This is a Parker Brothers game that came out in 1932 and actually has some aspects to it that are similar to Monopoly (which we will look at another day). You travel around the board buying properties on which you collect rent from other players in the game. Plus you can add houses onto the properties to increase the rent that other players must pay. There are squares that say ‘chance’ and a person can pick up a chance card where you can collect money, pay money, move around the board and other things. The player with the most money/property at the end wins the game. It quickly became a very popular game and continued until the 1970s as a popular board game. My game is from 1958.

Peter Coddles Trip to New York. This is not your usual type game but is more of a story game. There are no winners or losers in this game. It is a story of a genuine country man that goes on a trip to New York City and can’t believe all that he sees there. It came out on about 1880 and went through several updates until 1936. Basically there is a story booklet and a bunch of cards with various words and phrases on them. One person reads the story and when that person comes to a blank then one other player fills in that blank with one of the cards he has. Cards are always face down so they don’t know what is there, they just read whichever is on the top card. It makes for a comical story and everyone has a lot of laughs. Mine is from the early 1900’s making it my oldest game. Well, I hope you enjoyed another look at a couple of my games today. Have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • You’re welcome Steve! I am glad it was a beautiful day for the most part. Sorry for that one part. 😲. I, unfortunately, woke up reading sad news via text.😢 My good friend’s mother passed away last night. She had told me in church last night that her mother was passing, but the text still hit me hard. I have been praying for my friend and her family all day. Otherwise, it was a good day. Our weather has been warming up. 🌹🌞

        Sorry that cold weather is coming in for you. Despite the forecast, hope it does not stay long. Hope “spring in the air” returns soon. 🌱🌸🌼. Thanks, have a nice evening as well! 🌞😁🌙

      • Sorry to hear of the sad news, things like that are never easy, even if we know it’s going to happen soon.😕
        Often happens for us, it gets warm, then it gets cold and stays cold for such a long time after so it takes a long time to melt that last bit of snow.🙄 But I’m hoping the forecast will be wrong and spring will return quickly.😃😺 Thanks Beverly!😁😸🌙
