This afternoon we had a family game of Probe (Parker Brothers, 1964), an old stand-by that we played way back when we were kids and that we have since passed down to the next generation. I managed to guess Kathy's diaphragm under the "Interruptive Rule" with five letters unexposed, which gave me a 100-point bonus. The 17-year-old's fax lasted a long time, until his having to expose blanks made obvious just how short his word was. The 12-year-old's toxicity lasted the longest; Kathy managed to guess it at her very last opportunity before the end of the game. My wishful was guessed the earliest in the game, but I ended up with the high score and the win.

We marked the three-day Labor Day weekend celebrating American workers with several boardgaming sessions. (In other words, we commemorated work by playing.)
Friday evening, Kathy and I had our friend Theresa H. over for a game of Puerto Rico, one of our very favorites but one that we seldom get to play in its original three-to-five player form. The three of us ended up very close in shipping and building points, but Kathy won with a strong showing of bonus points from the fortress and city hall.
