New Toyz...

My son got a new game and asked me to play it with him... Cool!

JJ: I setup a scenario and balanced the teams, Dad.

Me: You what?

JJ: Here, those are your ships and these are mine. I adjusted their abilities to make the game balanced.

Me: What are all these cards and little pieces?

JJ: Oh, those are [lots of words that I'm pretty sure were from some ancient language] and you use them to [a bunch more of those words - maybe 1st Millenium Akkadian?].

Me:...

JJ: Let's play a round and then it will make sense.

Me: Ok.

[Insert game round here - lots of ships, moves, cards, little tokens... and explanations of rules and moves... again, I assume in 1st Millenium Akkadian.]
My best fighter (apparently) ready for battle.

JJ: And that now that ship is dead... Cool!

Me: Did I win?

JJ: You're ships are all dead, Dad. I won.

Me: Oh. Cool!

JJ: Want to play again?

Me: Let's invite Grandma over to play and do a four way game with you, her, Mommy and Me.

JJ: Cool!

Me: Yeah, Cool. [Maybe I won't be the last team to die.]

JJ: So what do you want to do now?

Me: Um... Can we take a cool space battle photo of your spaceships with my new colored gels.

JJ: Cool!

Some photo fun with some of JJ's spaceships, my photo studio light box, some gels on strobes, and a few fossils we had on hand as asteroids.
