Weekend Update

It's too overwhelming to give a proper session report for the THREE events I played games at this weekend. Here's my "sum up" of what I played:

--Jeff & Amy's on Friday --
(My) Amy and I made it to Jeff and Amy's since my in-laws were in town as free babysitters. Not having family local, it's a big treat for us to get out together. Much fun was had, including:
Celebrities (the all musical version, at least on my team)
Pitchcar
Werewolf
Bang / Dodge City

--My house on Sunday--
Predict-The-Oscar-Winners
Race For The Galaxy
Hollywood Blockbuster
Bang / Dodge City

--Monday Evening @ Dragon's Lair (with TWO new visitors - great to meet you, Rob and Travis!) --
Pandemic
Wicked Witches Way
Hart an der Grenze (I couldn't remember the name of this one, so I just did a Google search for /board game illegal goods bribe/ and it's the first match.

Saturday was Rock Band and Crokinole day.

Also at the other group I played Celebrities and Taboo.

You would think punching oneself would be a dead giveaway for being Edward Norton, but you would be wrong.

Also apparently grabbing your crotch and yelling heehee is Bob Dole.

Perfectly logical.

Sorry I couldn't make it yesterday but rule 1 along with a bit of bgg werewolf interfered.

I have to keep Jeff's geekbuddies recent posts cluttered somehow.

Just get them all Rob.

You should get the garbage song from last week. The drums are fun.

Yeah, this weekend was great. It felt to me like a little 4-day convention-lite to tide me over until the 4-day BGG.con rolls around again. Really a lot of fun. Thanks again to Jeff, Amy, Sean, and Amy for their hospitality.
And great to meet Rob and Travis-keep coming around! And lurkers are always welcome to come meet up with us at DL on Mondays. Just check the blog posts.

Speaking of new faces, Jason, where are you? Come hang out with us--we won't even bash USC...not too much. And I got an email from Larry who is busy with family matters, but still hopes (I think) to join us at some point.


re video: omg

Yeah, good luck with that. I can't believe a person did that. At least the last 30 seconds or so appear manageable. That's nice of them for that.

Chris is being modest. Thanks to Chris for hosting Saturday as well.

First verse: No problem.
Chorus: Problem.
Second verse: Sweet Jesus.

Crokinole, Celebrities, Werewolf, Rock Band...

What more can you ask for?

A: Nothing.


Nice gaming with you Travis and Rob. Hope to see you guys around again!

Hey, great to meet all of you.

I intend to game as frequently as possible. I see a varied mix of games mentioned here and there... does this group like 'Time's up'?

I hate going by my full name (Robert), so I have to shorten it. It sounds like yours, but it looks completely different when typed.

Celebrities is the better version of Time's Up.

So yes.

It is too bad we didn't play predict the predict the oscar winners. I would have nailed that mr. researcher.

Yay for new influences.

So... I have read the Lock and Load rules three times via long plane rides. Is it just me, or is the system a tad clunky compared to CC or ToI? Apparently the new ToI expansions has some very good scenarios.I need to de-shrink...
