Playing Trader's Dice at Houston Quilt Market
Robin Hoffman had cut over 1000 5" squares for us to play Trader's Dice at Market. Nancy must have played with over 300 people in the 3 days of market. Every player was unique, and it was a lot of fun to meet them all. We were surprised at the number of international shop owners that took time to stop and play. Seated at the table here is Switzerland and France. They thought we should be playing with wine!
Probably the most unique group was this group from China. They took pictures of each other playing the game. Nancy helped them understand the English words on the dice (they spoke very limited English). They had so much fun playing, they took 20 sets of dice back to China with them. At the end of play, they took individual pictures with Nancy.
The Australians got so loud playing, that soon we had people crowding in the aisle to see what was going on.
