13 May

I’ve always maintained that part of the value of playing games is that we get to see more of peoples’ personalities that might not come out in everyday conversation.

7 Apr

Ouch, 2016 continues to speed by! Codenames is still very popular, and games derived from Monopoly are still with us. Cards Against Humanity still has a few die-hard supporters, but is far from the days when it was the craze.

It’s Kinda Like …

10 Sep

When people ask what a particular game is like, it’s always very tempting to compare it to another game they might know.
“It’s like this … with a bit of that thrown in …”

Check out the fun board games (and card games) we played in our August event … many of them were similar to other games … or maybe just in my head …

Baby, it’s cold outside!

7 Aug

An epic day of board gaming fun. Was it because the weather was so miserable outside? Highly likely. But, it didn’t matter, we had such a great time indoors, laughing together, challenging, racing, puzzling, chatting …
