Table?  Fooz....we have a Tornado tournament table, used in the 2016 US Foosball Championships (they sell them at a VERY good discount after the tournament).  My kids don’t like playing with me.  Yeah, losing sucks...but tough love and all.  They’ll appreciate me, some day.  Quarantine has allowed us to clean out the garage.  Going to pull the trigger on a Table Tennis table.  Kids are destined for the same fate there.

Video?  I’m a FIFA playa.  I still screw around with the kids on the Wii once in a while.  Rah, Rah, Rasputin?  I crush that Just Dance shit.  Need to get back to Guitar Hero on the XBox.

Board?  Jenga.  Tried to teach the kids Yatzee, they didn’t gain an appreciation.  Risk?  Back to my kids and not liking to be, well...losers!

Re: Games

I used to play a lot of Halo about 8-10 years ago. I used to play Mario Kart & GoldenEye about 16-20 years ago. Don't really play many video games anymore. Every once in a long while, I play "puzzle fighter", which is a Tetris/Dr. Mario type game that's just a time killer.

I got pretty bored of the same table games after playing them for so long (Parcheesi/Monopoly/Sorry/Othello/etc.). I do like the new ones like Carcassonne & Settlers of Catan. Hoping to play more of those.

I like the new batch of Party games a lot. Cards against Humanity, obviously, the Cyanide & Happiness "Joking Hazard" game... If you haven't tried "Telestrations" with a big group, I recommend. It's like a game of telephone with drawings and it's hilarious (especially the "after dark" version).

I'm also a big Scrabble guy. I do some Words with Friends, but I like the table game better. Brownski, how into it are you? Are you a word memorizer? All the 2-letter words & most of the 3s?

Re: Games

In college we played Monopoly and Risk. Those were fun days. Games would go on and on for days. The stench on stale beer and bong water were all part of the challenge.

I think I know most of the 2 letter words just by playing it so long but I’m not really a memorizer. I tried playing the online mode which I think is similar to Words With Friends but I don’t have patience to wait for the other people to get around to answering. I mostly play against the computer. The actual board game is better of course. Then when the other player is taking too long you can drink a beer or yell at them at least.

Re: Games

When we have family gatherings we usually play JackBox.  It takes the scourge of game consoles and smartphones, things that are generally anti-socializing, and makes it into an interactive group activity.  Everyone connects to the game and answers questions/enters responses on the phone.  Variety of games included (trivia/quips/creative/etc.).  It’s actually pretty fun, and you can often passive-aggressively rip on your loved ones, in the nicest of ways!
