I got this idea from a post I read while stumbling. for those who want to view my inspiration, click here.
I know everybody and their mother is on them int0rnets now, and that includes me, but damn it I remember when the internets were enough of a pain in the ass that we’d occasionally throw up our hands in disgust and take a break.
You remember those nights? Grabbing as many friends as you freaking could, fighting for an hour (if you were lucky and it was quick) over what to play, how to play it, where to play it, and what food you were gonna god-damned order in while you were playing it?
If you do, then you also remember just how awesome those nights could be once everybody quit their collective whine-fest and got into the game (as long as the game was good). Cameraderie, festive jokes, playful backstabbing, laughter, good friends, good times. Screw ‘celebrating the moments’ with International Coffees, I want to do that again.
And here are the games I want to do it with, in no particular order (except that the last one is the most bitchin’) :
Flux is the most unpredictable card game ever invented. The goals, abilities, and most basic rules of the game (how many cards to take, play, turn order, even choice of play) are constantly in . . . well, there’s a reason it’s called that.
And it’s a blast. playable with two, but it’s most fun when you have three or four.
This game doesn’t look cool. it doesn’t sound cool. And it is the most fun you will ever have playing a board game based on economics. Scratch that. It may be the most fun you will ever have playing a board game. EVER. It is simply that awesome. especially if you get a bunch of geeks to play.
This one is just tooo much fun. Especially for those who actually rolled a character at one point in their lives. This is basically D&D on crack for the ADHD set, with a sense of humor that everyone is gonna lolcopter over (well… except your gramma)
Last, and (what did I tell you) MOST AWESOME –
*thunder rolls, lightning cracks*
We are talking the mother of all games here. This game has strategy, intrigue, money, politics, LOLs, backstabbing, back-room deals, and an awesome set of graphics/visual jokes to go with it. The goal is simple – WORLD DOMINATION. . . . . BWAHAHAHAHAH. *lightning and thunder*
Made by the same people as Munchkin, and it’s just as high quality, only a lot more grown up and complex. I definitely wouldn’t recommend this game for somebody under fourteen or so. But man, I’m glad I’m old enough to play.
