Hawaiian Shirts, Games Night

« previous entry | next entry »
May. 12th, 2007 | 12:43 pm

Why is it that none of the Hawaiian shirts I ever find look as good as the ones I see on TikiBar TV?

I must be missing all of the right stores.

Speaking of which, its summer and I need shirts. I believe I currently have all of four that I like, which is somewhat depressing when I probably have four times this amount sitting in the closet.

This does not count the giant bag of "conference t-shirts" that I have. Some day I will clothe the homeless with the supply I have obtained.

Game night went well. I won the Settlers game, lost in a round of blockus, and somehow did only moderate at the bean game. One group played RoboRalley the entire evening. I like the game... but I hate playing it when there are large numbers of people at the house. You get sucked into it for the entire night and then you don't get to actually socialize. The optimum number of people for a game seems to be around four, with the game becoming increasingly slow with more then that number.

Must go outside... must see big glowing ball of pain...

Over and over I have found the best shirts at value village...

and if you like shirts too extreme for the others.... they are there sometimes.

Settlers is pretty cool. I own that.

You do realize that playing games is for slaves though yah?

Better to be taking over real territory.

I like Value Village, but I hate shopping :)

We are all slaves to something... games is small part of my own slavery... the dog's need for food and being walked at 8AM is a much bigger time slave...

Yah. slavery all around. Maybe all there is! Damn physics.

If you know of a good game which can be easily played by people without english (settlers can be) and only lasts 30 minutes to an hour.
And has some skill and some randomness so people don't stress...
(Not chess (too skilled) and not just random)

Then I would be interested to know it.

We play it all of the time. Easy to teach, easy to learn... some skill but hard to master. People love it.

Actually we didn't end up playing it the entire evening, just a good portion of it, mostly because we were doing some socializing while playing :)
heh, mabey we should have people draw lots to see which groups of 4 they get to play games with to start off with :P
