I wish I needed the handicap. DS11 won't play me any more. I'm too slow. No challenge for him. I love the game, too bad.

I usually deal myself more cards in Blink as well to make it less depressing for the kids. Dd11, who I suspect is much faster than her processing speed on the WISC would indicate (but just error prone), actually keeps up well with me in Blink now a days and doesn't need fewer cards to win about half of the time. Since I've been in the 99th percentile or higher on processing speed every time I've taken an IQ test, that lends credibility to my contention that she isn't truly slower the way her sister is.
