Alrighty then .... here is a new game. This is a little different than most of our games.

We are colonists in the the year 1733 1765. It has been a hot, dry summer and the harvest is not as bountiful as usual. Plus we are in the midst of American Revolution and a Revolutionary War is pending, lots of skirmishes and small battles going on.

Beginning with the letter A, what are you going to do to be frugal for the coming times OR help the new country become independent?

Since I usually start the games with the first idea, I will ask one of you to start the game. Go for it! smile
