May I enquire as to the board games that were in play?
I suppose technically you can't call it a board game, but we were playing Quiddler. I view card games with non-standard packs of cards as being in the same category as board games.
We might have been playing Flutter, mancala or Mine-a-Million, but we weren't.
This is the only icon I have that is suitable.
All board game aficionados should get in touch with jiggery_pokery.
