Game Night

Published October 4, 2015 by kemeah

Last night, the hubby and I managed to pull ourselves away from binge watching Gravity Falls long enough to play a couple of games with another family.
We tried out Munchkin Steampunk:

Of course I like steampunk, it combines two of my favorite things: science fiction and Victorian fashion (goth).
It was fun and, as usual, full of punny cards:
I think this one would mix pretty well with Munchkin Oz, may have to try that….
Then I finally got to try out Love2Hate.
It more or less plays like Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples minus having to google people’s names.
We had a blast with it and we were able to let our friend’s 12 year old play (sure, she’s played Cards Against Humanity, but this didn’t go over her head quite as much.

That’s all we played because we all decided to go get ice cream… Pumpkin pecan ice cream exists….Its amazing….


New Games

So, I tried out a couple new games this past weekend:
Munchkin Oz! I’m so glad I found this(Target exclusive); My obsession with the works of L Frank Baum as a child was about the only thing that rivaled my obsession with Star Wars.
So, the game is not based on The Wizard of Oz movie; its based on the books. I’m pretty sure I even stumbled across a The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus reference on a card. Seriously, they even have Dorthy in her silver slippers and use the Tin Man’s real name. 🙂
Oh, but you don’t get to play as a munchkin.
Its just as fun as any other Munchkin game; just a bit extra fangirling involved.
We also played Exploding Kittens:
If you’re not familiar, The Oatmeal ran a Kickstarter for a Russian Roulette style card game. It also came in NSFW:

It was super fun, once we got the hang of it. And the box meows!
Well, that’s enough rambling for now…. thanks for reading!

Game Night

Published July 26, 2015 by kemeah

So my game group was created as a way to survive the winter of the frozen north, so attendance is pretty low in the summer. So sorry for the gaps in posting.
We played some new games last night, well this first one isn’t “new” just a different version:
adventure time
Hubby bought Adventure Time Munchkin.
It plays like any other version, though with the Dungeon Crawl addition its most comparable to Munchkin Cthulhu or Apocalypse. Very fun and adorable, but may have run a bit smoother if more of the players had been familiar with the Land of Ooo. Especially considering you play as a character from Adventure Time, I was Fiona!

The other game we played was:
Someone brought Krosmaster Arena. We seem to run into this issue of no one reading the rules to a new game until we want to try and play it, but we managed to stumble our way through a basic version of the game. Basically you move around the board and beat each other up. It was enjoyable, wouldn’t mind trying it again.

That’s it for now, short sweet and to the point. Thanks for reading!

Game Night

Published May 24, 2015 by kemeah

So I got two game nights this weekend. With my mother being in town, the hubby and I had a free babysitter, lol. So we met up with his coworkers at a restaurant for snacks, drinks, and Cards Against Humanity. It started pretty fun, but one woman kept being really rude to me. I finally gave up and asked the hubby to go home, I was tired of being talked over when it was my turn. So much for date night, we were supposed to go to a movie, but we missed it playing games. I just don’t play well with others I guess.

Last night was a pretty short game night. We played Smash Up:
shash up
So, while this game allows for a large amount players with the expansions, it really plays better with a small group.
Half the group left after that so the rest of us played Batman Love Letters
love letters
This one has become a favorite of ours, lol.
We had more drama with that couple, but let’s just say its just tipped us to the point of just ignoring them. It sounds childish, but its keeping the peace.

I made cupcakes for my game group again:
Yah…. They’re Hello Kitty….Occasionally I’m super girly…..
I should have baked less, I’m stuck with a bunch of leftovers. I got told thank you for a change though, I guess that’s a step up.
We got to play Cards Against Humanity:
I’m starting to enjoy this game less. I mean, its still funny but people get off on tangents and then other people get pissed other people get pissed about the game not progressing. By people, I mean that one girl I keep complaining about, she was mumbling and grumbling about my husband being chatty. Cards Against Humanity is a social game, we play it to have conversations. Maybe we just won’t play it anymore.
The night got better after she left. Someone brought in Smash Up:
smash up
This game was super fun! First I was pirates and bear cavalry and then I played as ponies and kitties! This game is random, its silly, it progresses fairly quickly and I can’t wait to play this one again. The group member who owns this one is looking to get more expansions, so those should be fun.
Bonus picture of my little geek:
Best part of everyone bringing their kids to game night is we get to watch cartoons. We watched Lego Movie and A Bug’s Life, I think we enjoyed it more than the kids did.
All and all it was a good night, I’m just really considering asking certain people to stop coming.

Game Night…. Actually Game Weekend

Published May 3, 2015 by kemeah

We had a picnic at work Friday….. I’m really not the best in social situations, so I grabbed some games from my car.
^This counts as playing outside, right?
We had a good time, I actually sold 3 people on the idea of buying their own copy of Tsuro… and maybe a few other things.
Then I went home and stayed up half the night playing Ticket to Ride on Steam with my bestie….. maybe getting those games on Steam was a bad idea.
For our usual game night we got to try something new:
loot letter
So for the last two Game Night posts I’ve been going on about Batman Love Letters; well, hubby found me the Munchkin version. It came with a card for the actual game as well! ^-^ Its fun, but I think I like the Batman version a little better…. Still really need to open my copy of the original game….
We also tried out Cartoon Network Fluxx:
This version has characters from when I was a kid and from shows now. The weird part though is that there aren’t any creepers in this version.
I got to teach some folks how to play King of Tokyo
I always take Mecha Godzill….erm Dragon, its my favorite for some reason. I really need to get the expansions for this…
Last game of the night was Munchkin Booty
I haven’t played this one in the while, forgot how much I liked it. Hubby played the whole game speaking in a really cheesy French accent… and won, lol.
It was a really pleasant evening; it was just hubby and I, my friend and her daughter, and one other guy who’s fiancee is out to visit him and he brought her for us to meet. So it was 3 families playing games together ^-^ No one complained, no one sat in the corner and glared at us, just a nice evening.
That’s it for now, going to go convince my bestie to play more ticket to ride with me.

Game Night

So, earlier in the week, the hubby brought home a bunch of “bad” bananas. This is what I fed my game group this week:
I made lots of banana bread….. one of them even has strawberries! Everyone seem to enjoy it, but I have way too many leftovers. Lol

We didn’t play anything new this week, Just some more Ticket to Ride:


Baby girl wanted to help me play, she must have been good luck because I won! You’d think I’d be tired of playing this by now, but not really.

We also played more Batman Love Letters:
Had to explain to some people why the game was called Love Letters, that made for some interesting conversation.

We got distracted after that, it was a small group of us left and someone had brought in the movies for the kids so we finished out the evening watching Spirited Away. It was a nice end to the evening, no one complaining or being rude (certain people didn’t show up this week); I hope this is how gaming continues to be.
Oh! I tried out Talisman on the PC, that game is so much more fun and (quicker) when no one complains about how long the game takes…. I even almost beat the computer, but the computer plays like an asshole.
