I am acutely aware of the gamer potential in my home. My particular problem is that I am in the minority when it comes to a decent attention span. I got the family to sit down to make characters for The Princes's Kingdom but we only made it half way through character creation when the kids wandered off and the wife got frustrated.
I have not yet looked into The Trouble With Rose but I will now. I have hope in that I picked up a whole bunch of Rory's Story Cubes and the kids love that as an activity. I also stole the idea for settling some disputes between the kids by having them roll a d20 and they come to me for the dice I keep in my pocket now.
I don't want to push too hard and make them resent it so I am biding my time for the kids to gain a little more maturity and the wife to find a time to relax around people so she won't get fed up and go do something on her own. Never thought about it until I married someone who works retail how valuable her alone time would be to her.
In suffering say "I'll change my actions so I don't ever bring that."
Or say "life is suffering and I know who is to blame."
