Tock is a card/board game that L & L introduced us to, many years back. It is akin to Trouble or Aggravation, with the playing of a card determining where your marble(s) are moved around the board. The final admonition on the rule sheet is “and Don’t be Nice”. I am happy to say, not only are we not nice when we play this game, we are downright VICIOUS. Yayyyyy?
TOCK about a Good Time
Precious days and minutes keep on winding down,
we’ve been to the mountains and all ’round the town.
We shared many laughs and heard some fine music,
now dig out the Tock board, we’ve not yet used it.
Tournament play starts, conversation all brash,
each team in turn, vows the other team they’ll thrash.
Game one now over, the ladies team has won,
a pause for caffeine, gents are not having fun.
Game two goes to the men, they’re now feeling fine.
break out the bubbly, we could all use some wine.
Rubber match soon begins, lead goes forth and back,
ladies grasp victory, they get winner’s plaque.
Smiling and laughing at good times we have had,
moments spent together, for which we are glad.
