A tourist in the Barbie Nation

A chilling tale of heteronormativity, card games, fabulous accessories and a couch potato

In the evenings, while half paying attention to the TV, I will sometimes stretch out on the couch and play games on my tablet. I do this, perhaps, too often.

My go-to games are the New York Times crossword and spider solitaire. But I every now and then get itchy for something else to play. I was cruising the Google Play store a few weeks back and found a computer version of the card game Phase 10.
