Once you start playing this game, you will probably think of more and more things you both like. Probably you will find more and more time to play this game like… while waiting for a doctor’s appointment, riding in the car, or even at the dinner table. Here’s a real bonus! As you continue to play, you will probably become more appreciative of each other and more content in general.
