The Scrabble Game 2

‘Twas a certain day that Dad, bro, and I

Played a Scrabble game for fun.

‘Tis a game of chance; loser, spare your cry,

For when the game is all done.

 

So Dad, bro, and I played this Scrabble game,

Dad first, bro next, and me last.

Racking our brains hard and taking our time.

“Yes! It is my turn at last!”

 

“Can’t my seven-letter word be put down?”

Well, now, don’t be in a gloom.

There! Dad puts one, two… seven pieces down!

For despair there’s not a room.

 

Wow! Nice! Dad! Fifty bonus points for you!

Bro, your good moves worth the cost!

But me? Well, yeah, I think I did well, too…

But I’ve to admit…

Ha, ha! Checkmate!!

Geri’s Game is my favorite Pixar short animation. I first saw this on VHS. This short animation was a bonus feature in A Bug’s Life. It’s about an elderly man named Geri who plays chess all by himself. I must add that you have to click on the link that leads to YouTube to watch this. Please enjoy this Academy Award winning 1997 animation.

Quite a talent he has there! Also, I think he had too much free time.

Thanks for watching.

 

 

The Battles of The Two Brothers

94658

“Alright my men, the enemy has arrived! The time of the battle has come!” yelled Grand Admiral Swanson. “Prepare my ships for battle!”

Meanwhile…

“Hoist the colors! Prepare for action! To action stations, all of you, and nuts to those who dilly-dally around!” shouted Commodore J. M. Swanson.

“Is your ship on… I-12?” yelled the Grand Admiral on the radio transmitter to his enemy’s leader.

“MISSED!!” the Commodore sneered back. “Now it’s my turn… is your ship on… W-89?”

“… What on earth are you talking about?!” shouted Grand Admiral Swanson. “There is NO W-89!!!”

“Oh… sorry, let me try again. Is your ship on… E-5?”

Admiral Swanson stared blankly at his side of the game board. “But… how… YES, HIT!!”

About an hour later, the Commodore smiled at his victory. Grand Admiral Swanson’s whole fleet had sunk.

“‘Twas a good game and a really close battle!” said I, shaking my brother’s hand. “Maybe you can win next time! Well played, buddy!”

Thus ended the Battleship game.

othello

A few minutes later, my brother and I played a game called Othello, also known as Reversi.

“Well, well!” I thought to myself. “It looks like another winning game! He, he, he!”

It would probably have been, if Mom hadn’t crept towards bro and gave him a hint!

Every move counts, and that one move of bro’s changed the outcome.

This time, he was the winner!

Well done! Well done!

The next day, Mom and I played Othello, and…

Mom won!

And I lost two Othello games in a row…

To cry or not to cry… that is the question… WAH-HAH-HAH!! 😭

I am now learning how to play chess from Mr. Lee Duigon, author of my favorite Christian book series, the Bell Mountain series, and I hope to be able to play chess sometime in the near future. With Mr. Duigon’s help, I want to add chess to my game repertoire!
