I’m a companion doll in a wheelchair, mind you, and as such, I have only limited options to be sportingly active.
There are two activities that I truly cherish, though. The first one is quite physical and enjoyable and involves my husband, Harry, if you know what I’m referring to. 🥰
The other one involves both Harry and my froggy stepdaughter, Nici, and keeps me in shape mentally. Of course, I’m referring to playing “Mensch ärgere dich nicht”®. 🎲
“Mensch ärgere dich nicht”® is a very popular board game in Germany. I just love spending my time playing with my family.
It’s really fun and quite a simple game to play, too. I really recommend for you all out there to buy the game and play with your doll/companion. 👍
You may now wonder, if it’s a simple game to play, why do I consider it a means to stay in shape mentally? 🤨
Well, yes, it is a simple game – originally, it is.
But Harry, Nici and I have found new and sophisticated variants to play the game at higher tactical levels which really challenge our minds. 🤓
We call them eXtreme Mensch-ärgere-dich-nicht. Last year, we founded the XMädn Tour hosting various styles of tournaments throughout the year.
You can do that, too. Or invent other competitions for you. It’s really fun, believe me. 🙂
Of course, it’s most fun on winning ways. 😉
You know, I really don’t mean to brag but I have been quite successful so far by the way. For instance, yesterday, I won my second “Major” when clinching the GP World Series. 🏆
My source of motivation? Winning trophies! And, of course, the Champion’s Kiss! 😘
(Which is part of the official winner ceremony protocol wherefore I’m not hiding it in my VIP Area.)
Admittedly, the Champion’s Kiss might then very well lead to the first activity I referred to above. 😊
(Which is not part of the protocol wherefore any talk would indeed belong in my VIP Area. Maybe sometime down the road…)
For now, I’m looking forward to my World Championship title defense starting in September when we’re back from our next holiday in East Frisia in September. 🙂
