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 http://theoatmeal.com/ 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!
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:
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!
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:
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.
It marked the 2 year anniversary of my game group being together, so I made cupcakes:
We kind of had a small group last night, but we had fun:
I got to try Mag Blast:
Its pretty fun and if you’re a sci-fi nerd you’re going to get a giggle out of the cards in this game.
It seems to be a TableTop Day tradition for me to teach people how to play Munchkin:
We played Munchkin Pathfinder. Our guests were a little confused by the fact that you’re allowed to cheat and back stab, but they had fun.
And of course this was requested:
You can tell a lot about people by what they find funny in this game.
For the most part I’d say TableTop Day went really well, considering the very first year we only had 4 people and way too much pizza. What annoys me, though, is not only did the person who was supposed to help me plan the event not do anything he promised he would, he shows up to the room we reserved for TableTop Day with his Pathfinder group. None of the say so much as hello to me, but they take up most of the room and eat all the snacks I bought/made. I guess they made it pretty clear that I’m not wanted around just my food and my games. Silly me thinking that people actually wanted me around, eventually I’ll learn.
So if you missed out on TableTop Day’s events or just want more, you should really check out this weeks Humble Bundle: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly
They have a bunch of digital versions of popular Tabletop games.
I’m excited because this means I finally get to play board games with my bestie. >.<
As always thanks for reading my rants and ramblings.
Yes, I still visited my game group this week. The in-laws keep snatching my baby; seriously mother in law acts offended that I want MY baby, so we needed something to do. We only stayed for dinner and a round of Munchkin.
Yes, someone was using a Warhammer mini as their game piece, I love my group of nerds.
Here’s my favorite monster encounter of the night:
Of all the nights I leave my sonic screw driver in my other bag, lol
I was really nervous about bringing the baby with us to game night; we had a few people say they’d stop coming if we had to bring her. I was really considering not going anymore, I don’t want to ruin anyone’s fun. Then again…. I own most of the games we play, lol
Anyway she was super good, she slept through most of our chaos; so I guess we’ll just have to see how this goes.
