A letter arrives…
It’s not often that I’m surprised by anything, having the ability of seeing what is approaching long before it arrives, but today I was. A letter arrived from my good old friend, Giraffe who lives in California. I wasn’t surprised that he sent me a letter; I was surprised at what he had to tell me.
Giraffe wrote of the beautiful beaches, pleasant weather and delicious trees. He still insists that the California weather makes the apricot trees taste the best. While that may be so, I still prefer acacia trees no matter where they grow.
But then Giraffe had something new and exciting to tell. He met two friendly humans, Abdul and Wajia, at a really cool store called Game Master who were happy to show him this exciting new game. Giraffe wrote of a game where all the pieces stay on the board and where all the animals get to play until the game is over. And he wrote it’s so easy to learn that it took only a minute. This sounded familiar.
And it should, it was Barca – The Watering Hole Game my friends and I play all the time! Was I surprised! You can get Barca as a game! I thought you had to gather a group of mice, lions and elephants together in order to play. Believe me that’s not easy; the mice keep scaring the elephants and the lions are constantly being chased off by the running elephants. Barca the board game is much easier to play. It’s even a travel version so you can easily take it along and play with friends. The secret is out of the savanna, so everybody can enjoy Barca now!
I’m going to stick my neck out and say you’ll become a fan of Barca like my good old friend Giraffe and I. So if you’re in southern California, go check out Barca at the Game Master in The Shops at Mission Viejo and in the Laguna Hills Mall. Abdul and Wajia will be happy to assist.
Here’s to hoping my good old friend Giraffe sends me a Barca game for the holidays… (hint)
