Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa’s super idea and persistence, we are now the proud owners of Parcheesi. We broke it out tonight and had a great time playing.
The little paper dice cups were a throwback for us adults and they intrigued the girls. The gameplay is simple enough, but there are plenty of strategical moves to be made (Mama’s many turn blockade, anyone?).
And, of course, I love the simple, geometric game board without loud colors, branded characters or hip/faddish graphics.
We had been playing for a while before any of us noticed something surprising- A game purchased from Amazon, and gifted in Ohio is produced by a company in Danvers, Ma, our former hometown and current next door neighbor! It’s a small world, after all!
