The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Games and Drinks Edition

For some reason, three people have contacted me within the last day or two asking me for suggestions on how to deal with drinks and snacks when playing board or card games with friends. They do make a mess.

If we’re just playing a game with an ordinary deck of playing cards, I don’t sweat it. However, what we often do if we’re playing a board game or a card game with special cards is simply set up a side table or two adjacent to the main one. We simply ask that beverages and snacks stay on that table. In fact, with close friends, we’ll sometimes use a chair or something else more convenient for this.

It’s a great little step to prevent someone from saying “Oops…” and ruining a $30 game.

I simply do not have confidence that they’ll exist when I’m old enough to use them. The numbers just don’t add up. (@ canadian finance blog)
