Last night I was playing War of the Rings with my glasses off. I was putting dudes in a region, and the Man asked me why I was doing it. I told him I was defending the region so that he couldn't take it and get points. He laughed at me and said, "You 're defending a rock."
I think I may get game glasses this year. I've always had to do close work with my glasses off - like sewing and reading. Whenever I talk to my eye doctor about getting progressive lenes, she laughs and says it's silly, since I don't need a correction for reading. I just need to take my glasses off. What she doesn't understand, is that when you play a game with cards with tiny writing, and a really big board, you have to keep taking your glasses off and putting them back on and then take them off again.
And War of the Rings is hard enough without defending rocks.
