This email absolutely made my day! Shad, a retiree from Montana who shared in this post how she and her husband play (and fiercely compete in) Solitaire Chess, wrote to let me know the game has now spread to her son and daughter in-law! The mental image of this brainy family at play made me smile!
The funniest thing just happened. Our son and his wife are here and we showed them the Solitare Chess. Jessica is an electrical engineer and Todd is a PhD dissertation writer in Political Science. They were stuck on #41. Todd finally figured it out the way we do by thinking of how things can move and in what sequence makes things possible. Jessica got out her little laptop and wrote some code to figure it out. They came to their answers about the same time.
We really have had fun with that game! What a funny evening. We really enjoyed seeing how the two of them would manage.
