Words With Grandma


So there's this game called Words With Friends and both of my grandmothers play it (I believe my paternal grandmother got my maternal grandmother into it) and they are both rather good at it so I usually have at least one game going with each of them. My paternal grandmother grew up playing this amazing card game called Royalty and most people haven't heard of it but I have many memories of stopping by my Great-Grandmother's house and seeing Hope Sr. and Hope Jr. playing Royalty with a dictionary next to them to settle disputes.
