The Fault In Our Stars

Cover

The Fault In Our Stars is a Young Adult novel by John Green. And it’s terrific. The main character is a 16 year old girl name Hazel Grace, who is struggling with cancer and meets a boy, Augustus Waters at a Cancer Support Group. And everything changes. It’s at turns lovely, smart, moving, frank, and thoughtful. Recommended for all. Okay. Okay.

(You’ll have to read the book to understand Okay. Okay.)

Masterpiece Board Game

Looking for a fun board game? Take a look at Masterpiece, a board game by Parker Brothers that is no longer in print. It’s for you, especially if you love art. A terrific game, not as stress inducing as monopoly, or painful as Sorry. You get to wheel and deal like a true art collector. Clever, artful, and entertaining.

From Wikipedia: Masterpiece is a board game by Parker Brothers, now a brand of Hasbro. Players participate in auctions for famous works of art. It was originally published in 1970 by Parker Brothers, and then published again in 1976 and 1996. The game is now out-of-print. In this game, players compete with other players to bid on potentially valuable paintings, and negotiate with other players to trade these works of art, build a portfolio, amass money, and win the game. The top value of a painting in the 1970 edition is $1 million, and $10 million in the 1996 edition; however, getting the full value for the painting requires some luck in landing on the right square on the board to sell a painting to the bank.
