Comments: Hey guys,
I know you generally cover role-playing when you do the gamer forge but I am looking for something different. I want a table top game that is fun but is not role-playing.
I am wanting to take a break but still maintain our gaming nights. Any suggestions?
Gamer Forger Response:
When it comes to taking a break, DCR recommends:
1. Get outside. Try lawn darts. Throw the frisbee around. Go see a movie. Any movie. But get away from the table or basement. Breathe some fresh air.
2. For some good OTHER games, some good solid choices are Settlers of Cattan, Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot, Poo*, or Red Dragon Inn. All of which accommodate more than four players, so everyone can get involved. That being part two of this point, INCLUDE EVERYONE.
3. Drinking games should only be played if all involved consent. Meaning: "If one person doesn't drink, pretty much no one does." The whole point of this is friends getting together for a few hours and having fun. Its just no good when one person gets excluded.
*Yes, this is the real name to a real game. See also, Nuts. Guy Named Joe believes Nuts is the funniest game, followed by Killer Bunnies.
