This weekend Stick and I went to Steph and Jeff’s house for a boardgame sleepover. We played some party games like Taboo and led into more gamer-ish games like Betrayal At The House On The Hill. I usually think of Avalon Hill games as a bridge between family games like Life or Battleship and hardcore strategy games. There’s usually some strategy involved, but not so intense and complicated that you can’t chat and play at the same time.
Stick and I were the Cranium masters!!! If you haven’t played Cranium, you should definately check it out. Cranium is the Mensa love-child of Trivia Pursuit, charades, Pictionary and Scrabble, with simple rules and lots of ridiculous questions. Although Stick seemed to think we were playing full-contact charades, which was extra amusing when he tried to convey the concept of “missionary”. It is a testament to how well I was raised that I did NOT pick up on it.
