Boggle at the Only

Our game of Boggle

Met up with Neil and Darryl tonight at the Only Cafe. It's a bar on the Danforth that's been around forever. About 19 years ago I got hammered on my first beers. At the time it had been located across the street from my friend John. It was also around that time I realized I wasn't a beer drinker. Too gasey a beverage. I'll stick to the hard stuff in large glasses with the umbrellas and fruit.

I'm not sure why Neil picked this place as it seemed like a random choice but it didn't matter. While the large selection of different beer brands was lost on me I did like the fact that they had a section next to one of the tables with a bunch of board games. The standards. Scrabble, dominoes, cards, boggle... Boggle!

We played a few rounds with Darryl pretty much dominating the score for each round. For those that aren't familiar with this classic, it's a word scramble game. A grid of 4x4 letters are presented in front of you and within a minute you must find as many words, 3 letters or more, in them. It's rather a fun game that you don't see much of anymore.

I still have it at home. Come over for a game sometime. I have deluxe boggle. I can't imagine if there was ever a non-deluxe version or what it would have looked like because there's not many bits you could really change.

I LOVE the Lorrainas. They are the coolest people and great entertainers besides.
