Just a quick question to add some bright spots to our Friday:

No-judgment zone! This is just to hear fun memories. :)

Telestrations After Dark

One of my most-fun memories in recent history has to be the first time I ever played Telestrations After Dark.

An old college friend of mine hosts game night socials maybe once a month at his house. Most of the time they're not up for heavy Eurostyle games or in-depth hobby games, so the challenge is finding party games that aren't complete wastes of time. It's pretty typical: a bunch of 30-something and 40-something folks come together to drink and play games.

Mix those two activities together with Telestrations, and things escalated quickly. It was a laugh riot for a couple hours, easy. It also helps that there's a pretty even mix of those who can draw well enough, and those who can't draw AT ALL. The transformations of a single phrase after they're passed six or more times can be completely ridiculous. :)

Party games are almost too

Party games are almost too easy as it's their design objective. I always start a game night with non-gamer friends with Snake Oil. Best moment was listening to a thirteen year old trying to sell his dad a "ghost lover." And we hd a ridiculous moment around "glitter pants" of which only the phrase remains and is now a mini-meme alng the lines of "Do you know what I could really use?" "Some glitter pants?"

A regular game moment was when I first learned Food Chain Magnate. It's a strategically tight game and the friend teaching it had played a few times. He has no problems bringing foreknowledge to the table and beating us up on our first play. He played an opening that had him drop an infinite radio tower with two cola hitting almost everyone's buildings. I had started with a beverage guy because saving stuff sounded cool. I was able to totally exploit the soda demand. As players determine game length at the start, the two of us learning had put in shorter end goals and the game wrapped a turn before the one teaching could recover with his engine.

I miss having time to play

I miss having time to play long thematic games. They created memories. Having a game set up over many weeks, meeting several times to complete games with many hours of total time. Gave stories some room to evolve and you connected to the game. I only play short games now and barely anything stays in my memory. You just take the game down and set up the next one and it is gone, all games plsy out more or less the same.
