Has Monopoly caused one too many fights? Are you tired of stockpiling resources in Settlers of Catan? Maybe it’s time to introduce your family to a new kind of game, one where you control the story and a single roll of the dice can change everything. This is the world of tabletop role- playing games (RPGs), where players embark on epic adventures under the supervision of a central Game Master. There are a lot of RPGs out there to choose from; here are a few your whole family can get into. GO ON A QUEST: DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS The first. The biggest. The king of tabletop RPGs. Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) has been around since 1974, though shows like “Community” and “Stranger Things” have only recently helped the fantasy game gain mainstream acclaim. There are a lot of rules involved in the gameplay, so D&D can seem overwhelming to new players. But once you become familiar with the game, there are limitless options for characters and quests. How will a human fighter, an elf wizard, and a dwarf cleric save the world? Roll the dice and find out.
What are you waiting for? Grab some dice and get the party started!
WHY YOU CAN’T PROCRASTINATE ON CREATING YOUR ESTATE PLAN
Y ou see it on the news every day: A husband and father of five dies in a car crash, or a wife and mother of three dies because an intoxicated driver is turning a corner as she’s trying to cross the street to pick up her kids. When you hear these stories, do you ever think, “What if this happened to me?” If you have, was your next thought, “What would happen to my family?” No one likes to think about their death, but you’re doing yourself and your family a disservice if you haven’t created a secure legal document that provides instructions and a plan for what would happen if you were suddenly gone. Take the gut-wrenching case of Terry Shiavo — she suffered full cardiac arrest and massive brain damage in 1990. At the time, she had no living will or health care power of attorney, meaning there were no legal instructions for how her care should be handled in an incapacitated state. A 15-year legal battle between her husband
and her parents ensued over whether or not she should remain on life support. She may have told both parties what she would want in that situation, but there was no legally binding paperwork. The nature of these inexplicable and uncontrollable events means you can’t plan for them, but you can plan for what will happen to your loved ones if you’re gone. How long will you wait to create your estate plan? Will it be one day too late? I could tell you more tragic stories of the people whose loved ones turn to us after their death, because this happens every day . Instead, use that time to secure the well-being of your family. I urge you to act now. We can answer your questions and design an estate plan with a trust that protects your loved ones and leaves instructions for your care in the event of your death or incapacity.
