Parlor Games

Last night a handful of gentlemen came over for a session of barbecuing and parlor games. The evening started with a hot plate frenzy to cook up hamburgers for 9 hungry gamers. There were many assistant Iron Chefs, but a special mention must be made of Matt and his efforts on the egg rings (in the face of sticky, uneven hotplate adversity).

Once the eating of meat was completed and sufficient dirty jokes were shared, we proceeded to the parlor for a lengthy round of Baulderdash. With definitions for krunt, gurmies, horehound and others cleared up, we moved onto Scattergories. A little liquid-intelligence helped the creative juices flow (with 'Naked Women' as "something starting with 'N' at the beach" causing most of the group to negate each others answers for zero points).

With Scattergories over and a few of the 'softer' gents gone home, we delved into some late night Hearts. I received the caning I so rightly deserved for trying to 'shoot the moon' too often and sporadically forgetting which of the queens was 'Black Betty'.

  • I think it best to leave the admission to the guilty parties.

    What happens at the nerdy board game night best stay at the nerd board game night.
