Gamer Wife Appreciation Continued - RBG August Game Night
Previously, I posted a thread thanking my wife for everything she does to make our Game Nights great.

We've just concluded another wonderful Game Night. The Reservoir Boardgaming Group meets once a month in our home in Brandon, MS. We have a different theme each month. For August, we chose Children's Games and Dexterity Games. This was the smallest crowd we've had in a while. It was also probably the most fun we've ever had at a Game Night. Below are images from the event.

Before any of the guests arrived, our 5 y/o helped with the set-up. He couldn't believe that the adults were planning to play 'his games'.



My wife always provides theme-appropriate snacks (e.g. Goldfish, Cracker Jacks, Hostess Ding Dongs, Twinkies, Tater Tots, and Mini Corn Dogs),



and decorations.



We started the night with Walk the Dogs.



This was followed by Hamsterrolle, and Villa Paletti.



Our stacking needs satisfied, it was time to do some flicking (Crokinole),



tilting (Highly Suspect),



and twiddling (Schildi Schildkröte)!



Other games played were Château Roquefort, Gulo Gulo, Ribbit, and Rüsselbande. One couple showed up late. They almost didn't knock because the house was completely dark. They only stayed because they recognized the cars of our gamer friends in the driveway and decided we must be inside. We saw them wandering around outside looking in the windows. How could they have known we were playing Nacht der Magier with the lights out?

Finally, we closed out the night with a great game of Dancing Eggs. A good time was had by all.



The highlight of the evening was when a player in the Dancing Eggs game (a fellow geek, I might add) got flagged for unnecessary roughness. Until I figure out how to embed a youtube video, you'll have to check out this link:

(Disclaimer: No gamers were harmed during the making of this film.)

By the way, I feel the need to mention what a huge hit Crokinole was. We will definitely be saving our pennies to get one of these bad boys for Christmas. I had been wanting to play for a while. Being such a huge expense, it was in the 'try before buying' category. A fellow geek (seppo21) brought his board over. It was the favorite game of the night for everyone who attended. I love this game. If you've been considering picking up a Crokinole board, don't wait. It really is as much fun as folks say.

Thanks to all who attended. And thanks to my wife for really creating a wonderful gaming atmosphere.

I agree completely. There are nights where me and some friends get together to only play Crokinole and have a good time. Sometimes, Crokinole is set up on a table, and is constantly running, while other games are going on other tables.

I'm glad you got to try it. That board is awesome looking.

Still though, I prefer playing with the rubber bumpers on the posts rather than just the bare metal, makes you have to be straighter with the shots
