I learned about Attacktix from Mark Johnson and picked up a starter set and booster at Target last week. I thought the kids might get a kick out of them. They've played every day for the past three days, including a three-way battle with the Rude kids. It takes about 30 seconds to learn the rules, and don't expect any deep strategy. It brings concrete rules to something all us geeks did as kids still do - have pretend fights with our Star Wars action figures. The most innovative mechanic is movement, which is done by counting clicks on a roller-wheel under the base.
Our final round at Bandon was at a new-to-all-of-us course: Sheep Ranch.
Our Thanksgiving day golfing adventure took us to Old Macdonald, probably my favorite course anywhere.
Before we traveled to Bandon Dunes I did a series of emails to my three golfing companions sharing details on the overall experience as well as each course. ...
I eased the foursome into Bandon Dunes golf by booking the amazing Bandon Preserve par 3 course as our first go.
