    WWWWH (Who, What, When, Where, How) did you do?

    And which one do you want to play on-line in this thread on next B-day?

    Who did I do? That's private. What did I do? Also private. When? Later that evening. Where? Private. How? Acrobatics.

    I dunno. Board games on a thread? Never had that before.

    Played Ticket to Ride tonight! Some great fun! Had 4 people in a fairly public place. Simple, decently long and fun for all!

    I don't like Ticket to Ride, its so quiet, everyone just quietly does their own thing.

    Last game I played was Settlers of Catan, we had to quit before finishing when someone needed to go, but since virtually every other game ends with me crushing my enemies, seeing them driven before me, and hearing the lamentation of the women, I assume that is what would've happened if we finished.

    You haven't played Ticket to Ride properly then! We all yell at each other and call each other idiots. Especially when someone takes the card you wanted.

    Fridays is Poker night with the Neighbors for the wife and I, Anyone else?
    I used to play a lot of Uno.

    Ticket to Ride looks fun.

    Yelling and laughter is the way we play as well.

    Curses have been cast at those taking the cards we want.
    LOL

    I have a Board Games night on Friday with friends generally. This week there is an event my club holding at school. We have about 30 board games and people come and play and win prizes and eat food.
    Then I just won't b​other!

    but there is no negotiation, no trickery or manipulation!

    I also had a chance to play Dixit and that one was a lot of fun, looking to eventually get my own copy of it

    Should I correct the thread title?

    The rules are simple and it doesn't need much strategy (but not none at all), so being 6 years old isn't a disadvantage. The name means "Don't become angry, man" and that's what you are going to say when one of your grandchildren becomes frustrated about an unlucky streak. Of course, when you are unlucky, you pretend to become angry, so they can lecture you in that manner.

    As I said in the other thread, before I realised it was the other thread .... Greek Naval Warfare. Love that game.

    Re: Bored Games Thread...

    The last board game I played was probably Monopoly. I say "probably" because it's been 10+ years and my memory is sketchy. My friends moved away in the early aughts and they all have (young, noisy, needy) brats kobolds children. It's often difficult to find a couple hours a week to play video games together on the damn internet. Actually getting together around an actual table? Forget it (at least for a few more years)!

    If we did somehow manage to get together, we'd most likely play D&D instead of board games. We talk about it all the time but I don't see that happening in the near future. Oh well, I hear that Spoony's forum is a pretty good place to find RPG groups. I may just give it a shot after the new year.

    They could market that in the U.S. as "UMad Bro?"
