Yes; I know. The headline is rather stupid. But that is actually what I have had to do today. The sons, my brother D and myself met at his apartment to play some board games…
… and I’ll tell you, that is just what we did. 12 games of different length and complexity ranging from 10′ to kill where you have to avoid detection as an animal assassin while having to get to your targets; being powerful wizards capturing and engaging creatures in battle against each other (Quarriors), and once again running a province in Burgundy (Castles of Burgundy). We enjoyed other games as well.
The funniest experience was a small game called Aye Dark Overlord where you, as a goblin servant of the dark overlord, have to build up a story blaming the others and explaining why you have just failed your mission. Fun and simple, easy to learn where all you need is a little imagination 🙂 Who needs big and complex when sometimes simple can be much more fun?
I actually think that this game will be even more fun with younger kids. Their imagination can really get the story going I think – will have to try it out.
It has really been a cool and nice way to spend the day. Tomorrow we will do the same with a friend of mine. We will be 8-10 people playing board games.
And Friday the 18th this month will be the date where we meet at work to play board games. Think that I will bring Treasure Hunter and Castles of Burgundy, and perhaps Among Nobles. A new Danish designed board game where you have to ensure your noble bloodline by getting the right offspring (yep!).
And of course we will be doing Wednesday gaming night.
What a wonderful gaming week this will be.
Hope to see you out there playing some board games?
