But to tell you about the reason for this post.... I have taught my hubby and his family to play Aggravation! When his sisters first played they were kind of shy about setting your man back but now that they have played for a couple of years, they show no mercy! Butch says I have corrupted them. lol
We have my old 6 player board that I have had for many years. Trouble is, there are most times 8 of us who are here to play. This leaves 2 people sitting out of the first game and then 2 others to sit out on the 2nd game, if we have time for a 2nd. So I started researching handmade game boards. I wanted to commission someone to make me an 8 player Aggravation board. I found a few people who already made them but their boards lacked design. They were simply "ugly". I do not want to play on an UGLY board!
I kept searching until I found an Etsy site... JohhnyUNamath! Boy, did I find the prize!!! I emailed James and Michelle, who own JohnnyUNamath, and asked if they would call me so I could talk to them about a special request. Sure enough, they called. I gave them all of the information on what I needed and they put together a plan, I approved it, and they got busy to create our new game board. We are now the proud owners of an 8 player Aggravation board!! It is not your average board either...
Just take a look!! Is this not THE most gorgeous game board you have ever seen! It is all handmade and hand painted... with matching hand painted wooden marbles to match!
Here we all are last Saturday night enjoying the new board! No one had to sit out!!
This is Tyler setting me back!! I had let him by once and to let him by I told him he had to give me 2 passes... Well, my 2 passes were up by this time and he was glad to be able to set my little marble home. We all laughed at how fast he did it. He blurred the camera!
James and Michelle of JohnnyUNamath have a very happy and satisfied group of customers here in our family! :)
I asked them if they would consider doing a giveaway via my blog and let someone else experience one of their game boards just as we are able to do now! They talked it over and agreed to give away one of their 13" x 13" Parchesi boards!!
How would you like to sit at your table with a group of friends, your children or your grandchildren and play on this beauty!!
To be entered in to the giveaway just head on over to James and Michelle's Etsy site - JohnnyUNamath and look through their game board listings. Come back and tell me which one is your favorite. Tell me what it is about that board that draws your eye to it.
Be sure you are not set to be a "no-reply" blogger. If I pull your name but there is no way to contact you, I will have no choice but to draw a new winner.
The giveaway will remain open until March 1st!!
