Went to my Grandma's on Sunday for Mother's Day and had a great day. Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out!
We played this game MagnetX marketed by Psyx Games. It was developed by two guys in Tracy, CA. It's pretty slick looking and fun. Essentially, you try to place a magnet on the board without causing the magnets to all crash together. It's pretty hard to get past 6 or 7 and you are playing it against people. The Wikipedia entry has a better description of the rules.
My uncle said the guy who developed this still works at his hot dog stand in front of the Tracy Home Depot. Crazy stuff. I'd recommend it and will buy one.
I love hearing these "little guy" success stories. I hope you do too.
