Christmas Eve Game Tradition Meets Rock and Roll Tour Bus

It is Christmas Eve.
I woke up with the sun streaming through the trees into my window.
My Dad is here visiting and we are breaking out the board games for tonight.
We lost all our old board games in the fire of ’11, but I scavenged this sweet find in a thrift store in Idaho on tour for 2 bucks –
Behold the 1956 game of Clue:
From as long as I can remember, we have “championships” on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Our favorites have always been Clue, Risk and Monopoly. When I was 7, I won the Monopoly championship of Christmas Eve, and it was a badge of honor that I wore proudly. I’m buying Boardwalk, bitches!

I figured I can play a game with all of you for Christmas Eve – it’s a game I made up on the tour bus and I call it The Three Things.

It’s simple. You pick three things and ask someone which one they would be and why. It is a fun game of imagination and it helps you learn more about people.

Let’s play, ready?

1. In a fortune teller’s tent, you are:
a. Crystal ball that has traveled all over the world for several generations.
b. One of the oldest tarot decks ever created, each card is hand painted.
c. Wooden runes cut from a sacred branch and hand carved.

2. In a museum, you are:
a. Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa
b. Van Gogh’s Starry Night
c. Dali’s Persistence of Memory

3. In a library, you are which series of books:
a. J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings
b. Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles
c. George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones

Remember to answer each one what you would be and then most importantly….why! Do it in the comments ask one back to the group in the comments. I’m gonna answer three of them later tonight.

Have fun with them!
