Calabaza: It's called "Shut the Box". There are many other names for it. It's a historical game. I'm in a medieval recreation group (www.sca.org), and that's where I learned it (though I haven't played in so long I had to look up instructions online)

Basically: #'s 1 - 9. You get 2 dice... and something to cover the numbers with. It can be as simple as a piece of paper with the #'s written out, 9 pennies, and 2 dice. You can play 1 or more people (but only 1 person plays at a time). Goal is to get as many #'s covered as possible. How it works: roll 2 dice. Cover #'s if you can (must use all). Example: you roll a 2 & 3: you can cover 2 & 3 or 5. If you roll 3 & 3 you can only cover 6. Scoring is done by counting the uncovered squares left over once you're no longer able to roll. Whoever has the lowest score wins (since the ultimate is to cover all #'s which would leave you at 0). Oh: and once 7, 8, 9 are covered, you can set aside 1 of the dice and only use 1.

I got my last item from crazyda79! I love everything thank you so much!

First this Monopoly box! (My favorite item!)



On the sides





Next this Connect Four keychain! (I put it on when I got the package and I won't take it off my keys)


A Scrabble photo album!


Trivial Pursuit notepads!


A trivial pursuit hairbow! (This has gotten the most use! I love the reversible ribbon! Where'd you get it from?)


Twister oven mits! (We bought oven mits before I got this package but we don't use them anymore since I got these!)


Oh me? I'm not doing anything...

This came in today! A twister pin! (It always makes me laugh. Along with everyone in my family.)

It says "Twister players do it on all fours!!!"

Now the store bought goodies!

Sorry Revenge Card Game! (So addictive!)


And Candyland lip balm!


And her creative note! (It's a Scrabble score sheet!)

Oh, a board game box! How cool is that? Awesome cool. Love the idea for scrabble covers too! You'll aways know what's inside. Oven mitts are great too, okay, and everything else as well Smiley

I am so happy you like everything Crying Goddess!!  I was a little unsure whether or not the button would be offensive but I figured if it was then you could just toss it and I would never know.  I thought of it one day when the kids were playing Twister and it just stuck with me as an idea to make for you! Glad it makes you laugh!  Wonderful pics, thanks!  Great swap!!!

Finally getting up pics of the goodies I received from Lilak Tygress!

First up, a Trivial Pursuit cup sleeve, an Operation box (it had earrings inside but they're at my boyfriend's place - will get a pic soon!) and a sadly broken but beautiful Life mug.



And last but not least, an amazing redone Clue game - the Monkees vs. the Beatles! It features many locales based on songs and other locations (Penny Lane, Yellow Submarine, Kansas City, Long and Winding Road, Ed Sullivan Show, Liverpool, Tear Drop City, Last Train to Clarksville and Pleasant Valley), and music-related weapons (tour bus accident, choked on a guitar pick, etc).





Thanks for the amazing goodies Lacy, this swap was a blast!
