Warriors of the Wind karuta

Some time ago I posted about creating a matching game with quotes from Warriors of the Wind, a mangled dubbing of Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind which we have an affection for in my family. I didn't have it quite done for New Year's, and then it became hard to find a time when the whole family was gathered, but tonight, on the occasion of a family birthday, we all gathered and played. True, the healing angel was ill (he's been sick with a virus now for more than 10 days...), and the ninja girl had to play with us via Facetime from Japan, but we did it! All six of us played, and everyone laughed and had fun. Even the cat got in on the game, temporarily sprawling himself on the pile of matches and then watching with big eyes as we grabbed the cards and shouted out the lines.

It's surprising how much fun these old fashioned card or pencil and paper games can be. :)

Sounds like a wonderful evening!

Sympathies (from a fellow-sufferer) to the healing angel. :)

Thanks; I hope he gets better soon too...

It was a blast--I bet you guys would like this too. I can imagine you doing it for, say, Hannibal (... if there are memorable lines from that?)

I finally convinced my eldest to watch this, the first anime I’d ever seen. She has kind of a thing against older anime (you know from the 90s and 80s) which I’ve never really understood. This game sounds like a great time!

She got "the feels" and "the feels were broken"

It was **great**--I was so glad we were able to all do it and that everyone seemed to have a great time ♥
