If you'd like to play a board game with my boys, you'll need to know the rules:
- Playing pieces belong on the board, or the spinner, or the table, anywhere but your mouth.
- Spin the wheel and then find that number on the board, or advance your piece, or count to the number on the spinner.
- Play nicely with your brother. This is more important than alternating turns.
- Playing pieces should be right-side up. You may play more than one piece on the game board. Your pieces may speak with each other.
- Construction implements are only allowed on the game board after you have successfully won the game, or if you have sufficiently explored the game board with your regular pieces.
- Using your tongue to express the deep level of concentration is allowed.
Follow these rules and you will likely avoid being scolded by either child for "not playing right."
