You Capture : Games

The assignment over at You Capture was Games.
School is out so we have been playing tons of games.
By far...the most awesome retro inspired game is Zathura.

Just look at that tiny little spacecraft,
I feel like a 6 year old boy living in the year 1956

I just love the innocence
that can be discovered when
I get a glimpse of childhood again.

Even if I am the
epitome of a

but sometimes a lady just has
to let herself feel
like a little boy.



Wait...don't go yet.

on here on my little ol' blog.

Very cool picture and I totally agree. Part of the awesomeness of childhood are little things--just like this. You've captured it perfectly.

p.s. I think all of your You Capture images would make a nice coffee table book. :)

Love your photo and the game sounds fun. We've never played it. I wonder if my teen boys would like it.

This is an awesome game and what doesn't show up in your amazing picture (LOVE IT) is the raised 4-D track that continues the board path upwards into a spiral! I think kids of all ages would love it! Thanks again for the inspiration!
