Hmm, Marzia can play chess…Avengers Assemble! Chapel is definitely going to need Marzia’s help when it comes to beating Fred, her babysitter and long-time games enemy. So far Chapel’s played (and lost) Battleship, Scrabble, Pictionary, Chess, Risk, Jenga, Poker, Settlers of Catan, Trivial Pursuit, and even bowling. Marzia, come to the rescue!

I may not understand the rules of chess at all (I can’t even remember what each piece is supposed to do), but I’m pretty adept at other board games. Chapel may always lose, but I’m not Chapel. I was the unofficial Scrabble, Bananagrams, and Pictionary champion of my class! It got to the point where nobody wanted to play with me anymore, and I’d just hang out at recess staring at the board despondently with my unused Official Scrabble Dictionary.
My family and I just absolutely love Bananagrams! We also impose it on many of our guests (don’t know if that’s all that much of a good thing…).
And do you know what I really like about this particular comic, Emma? It’s the way you’ve drawn Barnaby! We never actually notice him (I didn’t) until the last panel, but, even so, you’ve changed his facial expressions very aptly (even though we only see half his face). He goes from staring straight ahead, to being a little uncomfortable (I think) at Marzia’s boast to smiling at the girls’ incredulity at each other’s pets! It’s a very good observation of detail!

So Barnaby was keeping the hedgie on his lap while he drives? He's a brave man then.

Either brave or foolhardy...

Just wondering, do you happen to watch Tabletop at all?
Ivresse 7/27/14
I do not! What is it?
 Emma  8/6/14
I hope Marzia can beat Fred!
Miss L.S.P 7/26/14
Let's see...

I enjoy playing Othello quite a lot. I am often approached to play chess, which I don't really enjoy. I know how to play, and can play well when I want to, I just don't want to sit and contemplate all the potential moves that put my pieces in danger. I still play chess with my neighbor Troy on a regular basis, because it seems like it's the only regular adult contact he gets (teenagers, and young adults are often around him, older adults, not so much).
I enjoy Castle Risk quite a lot, Scrabble is fun, Trivial Pursuit is not fun because I lack the pop culture knowledge required for much of it (I don't have a TV and don't listen to the radio).

I've never played Othello! I should try it. It's so much fun to read about people's board game stories!

Mariza's expression in panel four is priceless. :D
Sam Tweedle 7/25/14
I'm so happy you like it!
 Emma  7/26/14
THERE's Barnaby's apology... Marzia's face in the last panel more than answers my previous question!
Tom 7/25/14
I would not call that an apology...
Sam 7/25/14
Yeah, that was probably a poor choice of wording on my part. Oh well!
Tom 7/25/14
We don't know if Chapel will forgive him, though...

He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
