You've only just now seen it? I played it several times over the last few years. I have Joking Hazard too but never got to play it.

Oh Joking Hazard probably would be that good as it's by Cyanide and Happiness. You could do Apples to Apples. I personally like Pandemic (lol) and Code Names.

Joking Hazard is great, but certainly not for kids. Apples to Apples is a good suggestion.

Maybe take the clothes and pivot into projects!

If she gets good enough then child labor laws get a little hazy and gray. Boom - secondary income!

Pardon me being the old fuddy-duddy at 13.5 years old, but how does she have a popular tiktock name at 10 years old? Maybe I should start with what's the criteria for a popular tiktock name?

Well, best get an account and follow. I mean the Chinese are doing it may as well do it too from a pure operational security standpoint.

Yeah, I heard that's how they get people to keep using it, they give you the endorphin rush of things going viral to get you hooked, while they siphon every single bit of data on your phone. The analysis of what that app does is pretty wild, including downloading and executing arbitrary executables. It's got a bunch of places it contacts to send encrypted data, everything it can find.

RE: Sewing...

Three weeks ago during dinner, my 6 turning 7 year old daughter was talking about wanting to learn how to sew. I mentioned that I learned to sew in 4rth grade, and the first thing I sewed for class was stuffed animal. It came out with a lopsided head. She thought that it was the funniest thing. Anyway, the following week my sister sends her a "my first sewing kit and project book" for her birthday. She attacked that thing with a passion. The only thing she needed help with was threading a needle with a long enough thread. (Short threads no issue, but long threads was challenging for some reason.) A few hours later she presented her first stuffed animal and proudly said that her creation was not lopsided.

Anyway back on topic. Board games recommendations:

Settlers of Catan
Othello
Clue

If you are taking recommendations for card games:
Fluxx
Waterworks

I've been kicking the idea of picking up sewing again. Mom didn't raise a helpless fool.

Got two grouping of tiny-humans these kits for last christmas and everyone liked them.

In junior high or so we made a pillow, giant bag, and a stuffed animal.

You should, sewing is fun. I'm seeing way more men's fashion patterns in the catalogs. Make sure you know your measurements. I found out the hard way sizing is way off. I wear 16 pants, but my pattern was like 22. Just saying.

If you want to destroy her perception of good in the world and get her jaded early, Monopoly and Risk.

I would also recommend checking out the game Lunch Money if you like fast little card games like this.
