Dining, gamer style?

28 Dec

One of our missions today was to buy some new dinner plates. There were cheap ones that were OK, and there were (considerably) more expensive ones that I liked a lot. And which were heavily discounted.

Turns out, Fraser has an aversion to cheap crockery. Nice ones it was.

I got home and looked up the style name. It’s a Villeroy & Boch pattern. Called “Twist Alea”.

So, Puerto Rico for starters? Followed by Princes of Florence, with a side order of Louis XIV.

    My office uses furniture from a company called Alea. I don’t think it’s a division of Ravensburger (or wherever they’ve moved to now).

    Googling “alea furniture” reveals a multitude of links, including a company in Queensland.

    So after dinner, how about an Alea game on an Alea table with Alea plates?

    But … but it’s ugly! And it’s office furniture. Sigh. You got my hopes up for this? 🙂
