Biggie has been learning the Recorder for 2 years now, and has started private lessons to prepare to sit the AMEB Music exams. This is also introducing her to musical theory, which is important (I am always surprised that there is no musical theory in the core ‘performing arts’ curriculum at school).
After class, I was chatting with her teacher and someone (Biggie?) mentioned games.
The conversation went like this:
Recorder teacher: Oh, I love games! And Ravensburger – are they a german company? They make great games!
Me: Yes, lots of great games come out of Germany.
RT: We really enjoy them.
Me: You should try – have you heard of a game called Carcassonne?
RT: Yes, we have that. And Alhambra? And we played this game with Zombies last week
OK so maybe that last bit was an exaggeration.
I just thought it 😉
