Classic Games by Lois B. Sutton – White Mountain – 550 pieces

Classic Game was a lot of fun to assemble, and therefore it went together pretty quickly. When I’m having a good time I find it hard to stop. We addicts are like that sometimes. 😉

Collages like this are easier for me to assemble quickly because sorting into sections is easy, and I am able to take my containers and trays into bed and work on them there when sitting up is difficult. White Mountain has so many beautiful, interesting, colorful, and educational collages that I can always find one (or twelve) that I would like to assemble.

This made me laugh, Samuel Clemens is a scary/creepy looking dude (in my opinion), and Authors doesn’t sound like a game many children would want to play. I wonder how popular this was.

I remember having this game as a child, but I’m trying to remember how to play it – because I don’t recall it being educational. Maybe it was one of those games that was so much fun to play that you don’t notice you’re learning anything. I can’t say for sure, because all I can remember is that we had this game, there is no memory of anything else. (Gee, I hope it wasn’t a memory game!)

Mom taught me how to play Chinese Checkers when I was young, and she told me how her mother taught her how to play when she was young. There are such good memories of playing this with her and trying to figure out how she was so much better at it than I was; it was probably because grownups are a little better at strategy than young children are. We had fun being together and talking while we played Chinese Checkers, and this game will always be special to me. 💗

As usual I loved this puzzle – a bright, colorful collage of games – what’s not to like? It was a very good quality puzzle that I found to be a joy both to look at and to put together. If you’re a fan of games, collages, or White Mountain puzzles in general I would absolutely recommend giving this one a try.

    My grandma tried to teach me how to play Authors in the ’60s. I never did catch on, way over my head. I can’t remember how to play Cootie other than 1st player to completely build it won. Electronic football was big with the boys in my neighborhood and if I had a $1 for everytime I played Old Maid… ka-ching$$$. I enjoy collages too – always good memories in their themes.

    Love the Chinese checkers! It always confused me as a kid.

    Check out what I finished today!

    In case the link doesn’t work, it’s a Eurographics puzzle of a Kandinsky painting. One of my favorite painters, but such a challenging puzzle! He wrote very eloquently about his philosophy behind abstract painting, and I love that I can find whatever meaning in his paintings that occur to me at the time. Abstraction isn’t for everyone, but I like it.
