Over the weekend I was attending NCA 95th annual convention, which is one of the largest communication conferences. This year, it was in Chicago, one of my favorite cities. Other than the conference, I got to enjoy the city, the food and the company of my friends and my fiance.
I had a chance to meet one of my best friends and her boy friend to have sushi downtown. We indulged our taste buds at OYSY with a bottle of wine, 7 sushi platters, and ice cream. We TRIED not to talk about our prelims dissertation or theoretical concepts, and we surely did make fun of each other, as always, remembering good old days.
We were on our way to have some more wine, but Marbles, the brain store tempted us to spend about one hour playing with all those mind games at the store. Here are some that I found really entertaining:
MindFlex - I managed to get the ball into one of the pipes and throw it into the other pipe right across with mere thought!!!!
Abalone - I actually bought this one. It is like a Sumo fight where you are pushing your opponent off the game arena.
Cathedral- My friend and her boyfriend played this for a while. An innocent game ended up with a rather funny fight.
Left the store euphoric, with bags of games and a smile on our faces. We no longer needed another bottle of wine...
Any other suggestions on brain games?
