I am a 42 yr old Grandpa (soon to have 5 grandchildren(ok Step Grandchildren)). Though my sons and my wife and I do play with my folks whenever we get a chance.

Older Folks!!
I am an grandfather. Some grandparents are not older folks.
However, I think it is a grand idea.
I often play with my grandkids.
I have already introduced them to some Icehouse games, which they like.
