Go Stop!

When my mother-in-law first taught me the game "Go Stop" by making a detailed chart (shown below), even she couldn't have fathomed the craze it would start for our travels. The deck is a beautiful arrangement of the 12 months of the year, each based on a traditional Asian flower. It includes both modern and ancient Korean language, wildlife, and even some images symbolic of Confucianism. The game itself is a momentum-filled frenzy filled with clearing, shaking, bombs, and of course, the Great Poop (see the final picture of me playing the computer).

Although the airplane was a bit slippery, once we were on firm carpets (and park tables), the game took off. Shown here are my sister (above left), her friend Diane (above right), Jeremy and Eun Ha (below left), Nathan (below right), and the wonderfully hospitable Marion and Judy (far below). On a slight tangent, Marion's claim to fame happened when his car broke down alongside a highway and he couldn't get any help. As it was getting dark, he finally came up with the idea of pretending to be dead, upon which several drivers called the police and he had help within 10 minutes!
