    When the kids tell you to sit out the round of signing a word for the others to guess because you know the Dutch sign language alphabet, is a new high in boardgaming.

    This was after they'd lost the previous 3 rounds signing.
    The eldest even flunked guessing a word having to feel the letters spelled out in front of her so as to make sure my sister didn't win the game.

    By doing so, though, I won the game instead.

      They knew they'd get pwned.

        It was never gonna turn out in their favor, and the eldest is a very bad loser. She has to be the best in everything.

        Later that same night we played Mario Kart on their Switch and oh my goddess... every time she lost a race the profanities coming out of that 11 yo's mouth would give any sailor a run for their money.

          They are all the same these days. They get it from their peers at school, AND from their family at home.
          I have a 5 year old great grand daughter, & we have to be so careful what we say around her.
          Today 'bad language' is the norm everywhere.

          As for not winning, that is all the 'child experts' who consider children can not accept failure, so now at team sports over here we are not allowed to tell them the final score, or who won or didn't win.
          They are going to freak out big time when they are exposed to the real world.

              The 11 yo has always had that air about her.

              I think she's going to find out the hard way what life's like at a later age, in terms of being competitive and wanting to be the best in everything.

              I do have to admit that I do take a little bit of pleasure when I beat her at her own game.

              Her sister is nothing like her and I admit, she and I get along a lot a better and yes, we conspire against the big sister too.

                *cackles* And I'll bet little sister is glad to have such a cool partner in crime, too.

                    I have not but plan to once all 8 of them have been dropped/aired, so that's 4 more to go.
                    Then we'll do a little binge on Disney+.

                    I have started The Acolyte.

                      Yes, we've had our differences and I haven't forgotten about his poor choices or how I once got a starring role in one of his blogposts, but then there his posts about his dogs and those weird a$$ food/beverage posts and that I can get along with.
                      Sorry, to jump back to a post from this far back but I had been meaning to mention Mallozzi again.

                      I'm personally in kind of a strange place when it comes to him. Because of how it seems he and Torri Higginson are on good terms again, while my frustration with his earlier choices still remains.

                      If there's anything that most exemplifies that, there's the fact that I once responded to Torri on Twitter saying that Elizabeth was an all time favorite Stargate character. That post has two likes. One by Torri and one by Mallozzi.

                        Well, considering that of the two TPTW, it was Mallozzi that wanted to keep Weir alive... *shrugs*

                          I have just watched the first two episodes, looks like it might be OK. But...
                          I do wish they could finish one show before they start a new one.
                          What has happeened to Andor? He is supposed to take us up to Rogue One.
                          What has happened to Ahsoka? Will she get back to our galaxy.
                          What has happened to Obi-Wan Kenobi? After just 6 episodes, is that it
                          What has happened to The Mandolorian? Has he now retired & leading a quiet life

                            I can kind of understand the frustration, but at the same time, it takes a lot of time to make a single season of these shows, especially with all the SFX and other post-production work that goes into them. And then there was Covid screwing up everything. So I can see why they'd think it's a good thing to have multiple productions by different teams to alternate between.

                              I think in the industry you don't stay mad forever.

                              Season 2 has been filmed -- was on hold during the strike -- and the last I heard of it, it will be released in 2025.

                              Confirmed for a 2nd season.
                              No idea on when it will be filmed or when it will air.

                              As it stands right now... yes, that's only 6 episodes long.

                                Thank you Miss Kitty & Falcon for your answers. I know things take time to come to fruition, but all the more reason to concentrate on finishing one project (movie or on-going series) before starting something new.
                                Also I got spoiled watching Stargate with 21 episodes per season 1 to 7, and 20 episodes Season 8, 9 and 10.
                                Now they can't manage to get into double figures for a season.
                                Of course it means having to rewatch the whole thing from the beginning so you can understand the new episodes. So the streaming services get more traffic.
