Maps are fun! (or Another reason why I don’t have a boyfriend)

I’m home on a Saturday night playing Statetris!  So cool and harder than it sounds.  The idea: place falling state shapes in the correct position on a blank map of the United States (similar to the video game Tetris).  At its most difficult level, they don’t tell you what state you have and you have to decide its correct positioning (those square states are a bitch).  

There is also a Europe version (Moldova? what?) and if you really want to feel bad about your geography skills, try the Africa map on the “hard” level.

    I find this game to be fun and educational and far too hard after three marinis.

    I thought it was fun. The hardest part was getting the states to drop in the right spot. If you were off by so much as 50 miles… bonk.


  3. The first two were martinis, QJ.

    “Marinis” are the next however many, where the preparation gets less and less elaborate and you end up just upending the Bombay Sapphire bottle into your waiting and open mouth. 🙂

    That lacks class, NDT, and say what you will, I’m one helluva classy drunk.


  5. No worries, QJ; I have it on good authority that the late Queen Mother was quite an expert on the art of the bottle chug as well.
