Christmas Party and the Neophyte

Postby Alan Millhone on Mon Dec 05, 2005 9:33 pm

Hello everyone:

I attended a Christmas Party tonight and each person who attended was asked to bring a gift for exchange. I took along a folding regulation board and a set of red&white plastic Crisloid pieces. The man who got my gift during the exchange seemed to know what was in my package. After he opened it up I commented that no instructions were included. He responded, " I have forty years experience playing this game and need no instructions". I also commented that the board was not red&black................. He commented, " Those Chinese (toy makers) don't even know what colors to use" ! No one at this party knew anything about my Checkered background and it was interesting to hear the comments made:-) Just wanted to share my experience tonite...............

Sincerely:
Alan Millhone, President

Hello:

The hour was late after the gift exchange and thus we had no time to play any Checker games.......................... Yes, a checker set is always a nice gift . Mr. Roger Blaine, our ACF Equipment Dealer always has boards and pieces in stock and sets can be ordered from our ACF Web Store :-)
