Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada

Risk is my favorite board game. Here I'm playing with Christina, Tom and John. Christina and Tom formed an alliance, and the game got nasty, even violent. Christina grabed my arm; I slapped her hand; she slapped my face. The objective is for each individual to take over the entire world, one battle at a time, by the roll of dice.

This is a bag I sewed as gift for Christina from a pair of corduroy pants. And below is Mum, Dad and Leah playing Scotland Yard, which I played only once... cuz I thought it was boring.
