The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Regenwormen: rain worms

I’m getting into board games. A great way of interacting and learning to take turns often with strategy and laughter. 

We found a new one this week. It’s called Regenwormen or Rainworms. 

It turns out to be environmental too. The kids version (which was cheaper) features dice with tasty things for worms on. 

  • Cucumber
  • Bread
  • Cheese
  • Ketchup (?)
  • Worms 

You need to collect tiles with a value from 4 to 9 by creating a dive score with these symbols. 

You throw the dice and choose which symbol to set aside each time. Each symbol is worth 1 but bread has two pieces so is worth 2.

It involves strategy and tiles  can be taken from other players. It’s hilarious!

It gets you thinking about worms. We have a wormery. Not sure what they’d make of ketchup. Or cheese. But you never know.

    Sounds like fun!
    I recently discovered a website that’s all about borrowing from, and lending to your neighbours.. check out “” and if there’s a game you’d like to try, then maybe someone has one you can borrow for a week. That way you can “try before you buy” and save money on games you thought were good but were not maybe what you wanted once you played it.
    It’s free, no cash changes hands (maybe some people want a Borg for some really expensive stuff of course)
    Or you can just keep lending and rotate the games… I’ve lent some stuff and borrowed some stuff too, the site is brilliant!

    I like playing board games in the holidays too. My husband is an IT and sci-fi geek so we have some fantasy/hacking related games, likhe Pandemic, Eldritch Horror, Netrunner, Infiltration. My favourite of those is Infiltration.

    The worm game sounds fun. When my kids were little, I made a point of providing them with ‘cooperative’ board games, where they do learn about taking turns etc, but also that winning means success for everybody. Some of these games were environment-geared. (Sadly, I can’t think of the names of any of them right now!)

    …it makes me oddly hungry LOL (but, then, I’m always hungry 🙂 )
