Sports & Games

After spending the day running to various engagements, we had a family fun night. The boys pulled out Star Wars Trivial Pursuit.

Now, Daddy knows so much about about Star Wars that he starts rolling the dice before you turn over the card to verify the answer. The challenge many times is just getting to touch the dice again once Daddy's turn begins.

But, this did not deter the oldest one. He felt he had learned enough Star Wars knowledge that he could battle solo, which, of course, hurt my chances of getting a pie piece signifigantly.

The game plays just like regular Trivial Pursuit, only the questions are all about Star Wars. And, I mean ALL about Star Wars. Even the behind the scenes rumors.

This is also a DVD-enhanced game, so when it's time to earn a pie, the DVD asks your question. It also asks an even harder question for the game winning question, which always gives those of us whose names are not "Daddy" more playing time.

The little one showed his intelligence by teaming up with Daddy, and even answered a few Yoda-based questions on his own.

The oldest was able to score one pie piece, while I somehow stole two. (I did steal one pie question from Daddy, knowing the drawing on the screen was an early representation of the Tusken Raiders or Sand People.)

Even though it was inevitable, the little one beamed when the celebration music after Daddy answered, "Lando," to the final question.

About the Not So Lazy Days series

I've challenged myself to find a new activity to do five days a week every week of the kids' summer vacation. Activities will fall under one of three categories: Arts & Crafts, Sports & Games or Field Trips. Follow me on Twitter @readallaboutsam for immediate updates on posts!
