Games Night

I’d forgotten just how good it is to get out of the house and sit with fellow geeks around a table to play games. Lady M wasn’t feeling great, so I wandered over to our friends’ flat on Monday evening with snacks and a selection of games to add to the mix.

And as we set up the board to play Pandemic (which I’d never played before) it was like tension boiling off. There were people there I didn’t know, but that didn’t matter because we were all focused on the table. My anxieties settled, and play began.

Okay, so the cards weren’t on our side and the world ended up dying as all the Outbreaks cascaded across the southern hemisphere as all the Epidemic cards came into play in very quick order, but it was a good start and broke the ice.

Then we played Cards Against Disney, and many people’s childhood memories were forever sullied. Sorry, not sorry – it did lead to several rounds of answers being sung in grand unison around the table. So, that happened…

We’ll no doubt do another one shortly as people’s shift patterns allow
