On the second Friday of each month I have been hosting a monthly board games night now for a number of years, (probably 4 or 5), and I enjoy the people that come out each month. It's good to know the art of face to face social interaction is still around.
Last night I had about 32 people show up and there were many games going at the same time. I am very lucky in that I use the party room in my apartment building for free, as long as the room is open to the residents who live here.
I like to play the more simple games, I'm just not into the strategy games, way too much thinking for the end of the work week. I played Cockroach Poker for the first time last night. It's a bluffing game. It was good, and at least I didn't lose! I also played Smart Ass, Say Anything, and Anomia. Other games I like are Apples to Apples, Cranium, Yahtzee, Scrabble, Balderdash, Taboo, and Boggle to name a few.
The players bring along their own games, as well as snacks and drinks. We usually go from 7:30 to midnight. I'm always very tired by the end of the night, so I leave the dishes until the next day!
Here are a few photos from last night.
