Is “travailing” a typo or a pun? :-D

Very nice!

My grandfather made me one of these games when I was 5-6 years old and I still have it today. I actually brought it with me last weekend while I was traveling with my 5 year old daughter and she enjoying beating her Dad in tic-tac-toe. It was also nice to be able to continue to play during take-off and landings – you can’t do that with an iPad.
