Game Nights! Times Two

Game Night Saturday 21 March 2015

Yeah, I'm behind a couple of blog posts, so I have TWO Game Nights at the Morgans to cover.


The big game was Pandemic, which was being setup here. (Click on photo for larger.)

A cooperative game, lots of fun. But I think we did three rounds of it -- and everybody died each time. Oh well, that's life. (Click on photo for larger.)

Afterward we played a couple of much lighter games -- an old card game based on commodities trading. And a delightfully silly card game called Nanook, where you do bridge-like betting on how good a hunter/fisherman you are. Probably violates cultural approbation and all, but then we also play Cards Against Humanity, so... there's that. I ended up ending most of the rounds by saying "No." Except once. Remarkably, I picked right most of the time. (evil-grin) It was an interesting strategy.

Game Night Saturday 18 April 2015


We've been buying Mexican Coke (DW) (LJ) for Game Nights at the Shell station at I-96 Exit 16. I've not had Coke at home since I was hospitalized. This green bottle was Coca-Cola's new Coke life (the capital part of the L is silent), which was a mix of cane sugar and stevia -- 60 calories per 8 oz., versus 100 calories for 8 ounces with high fructose corn syrup. Flavor? Adequate. The little bottles were stuck in the freezer to chill -- and they tended toward a superchilled slushie. (grin) ---- And the game we're playing? Everyone is at the big table playing Eldritch Horror. Sort of a Lovecraftian version of Pandemic. Yes, your health points are the little red hearts and sanity points are the little blue brains on the right. Brains. BRAINSSSS. (Click on photo for larger.)

Our hostess Mary got up and started taking pictures, too. (Click on photo for larger.)

It's Dr. and Mrs. Dr. Phil and everyone, with Mary behind the camera. You can see we're playing dueling cameras. -- Foreground is Kyle on the right and Kyle's elevated broken ankle in a cast on the left. I am not that flexible, and I'll take a walker or canes over crutches. (Click on photo for larger.)

The 1st and 2nd Place finishers. Yeah, this isn't the same game. We put several hours into Eldritch Horrors and we weren't winning the cooperative game. So the gang split into two. This table played Lords of Watersmeet. I had one real chance at the end, betting on being able to finish one big payoff quest and was one move away from getting it done. I probably couldn't win, but I might've been second. Oh well, still I came in 4th out of five. (Click on photo for larger.)

A most excellent five and a half hours. Also garlic dip, onion dip, garlic cheese bread and everything flavored bagel chip crisps. No worry about vampires in this crowd!
