Escape!

December 2nd, 2018 at 06:30 am

DS and the grandsons came over yesterday with an Escape game -- actually, I bought it for DS' birthday. We spent a couple of hours trying to figure out how to open the box that held the werewolf antidote. We did have to peek at the hints a few times. It was a good time, and I'm happy to report that none of us turned into werewolves.

In the morning I went to Jewel and bought some onions and peppers and got a free organic candy bar from their MyMixx program. Total cost: $3. Then I went to TJ Maxx and spent my $27 gift card, plus .92. I scoured the clearance area and did pretty well -- bought a fancy candle, egg tray, a cat mug and coasters as gifts -- and for myself, I bought a wire rack and a package of coffee that was deeply discounted because it was pumpkin-pie-flavored.

In the afternoon, before the fam came, I did some wrapping and just generally sorted out the gifts. I also ordered Amazon gifts for the Florida gang, which cost me nothing. My Amazon gift cards are pretty much used up now.

It rained ALL DAY yesterday. Which I guess is better than snow. Downstate there were many "possible" tornadoes, so I'm happy we escaped that as well. I hear there were no fatalities, so that's good. Hoping Frugal Foodie had no damage.

    I was looking at some of these games yesterday was curious if they were fun so I appreciate the review.

    Just keep in mind, these games have a one-time use. You can't play again with another group, because you pretty much trash everything as you. At least that's how it went for us. But really fun, and absorbing!
