No way you'll catch me buying a can of Pringles here but in Japan where all kinds of unique local flavours are incorporated into familiar brands, I couldn't resist picking this scallop Pringles. Other tasty treats we brought back include the usual fresh produce like peaches, white corn and tomatoes.
No Tokyo trip is complete without stopping over at boardgame shop Yellow Submarine. Told myself I'll buy less Japanese boardgames this trip but ended up with five new games to haul back home. Played In Front of the Elevators several times already and it's a really fun, short game. Your goal is to help your family members get into the elevator, which can only hold a few people at a time. You score points for each family member that gets in. I like it a lot as it can get pretty "thinky" as every card you play affects every other card in the row. The rules are extremely easy to remember but as you play the game, you'll notice a layer of complexity that turns this simple-looking game into quite an entertaining brain-burner.
