Love/Hate



Helllooooo!
Today I'm going to introduce you to one of my very favorite table games:  Love/Hate.  I play this game all the time when I go out to eat with groups of people.  The object of the game is simple:  each person in the group gives a topic, for each topic named, the rest of the group has to name something they love, and something they hate for that category.  This game is a great way to get groups to learn about each other.  I play it a lot with my swimmers when we go out to eat (right, Emily?).  Here we go:

1.  Food--Cottage cheese/Brussels sprouts
