When we moved to San Diego, I knew we would have to wait to attend science fiction and fantasy conventions to meet people. The season had passed, and Comic-Con is filled with people from all over. I decided to go to Meetup.com to see what groups were out there. I went through the lists that related to the things that I loved the most like games, writing, books, and movies.
We found a very active boardgame group that has meetups all over the city, and one in our neighborhood! We went and met some nice people (one of who we hang out with outside the group) and discovered new games and gained a new love for some we've played over and over before. I thought I would share my new loves with you.
Games that I Love
Tabletop Episode from Geek and Sundry's YouTube Channel.
This game is based off the fabulous Terry Prachett DiscWorld book series. You don't need to know the characters to love this game. It is only for 2-4 players and your objective can be different each time that you play, and you have to guess what the other players objectives to make sure they don't accomplish it before you reach yours. I definitely recommend this game!!! We've played with several different groups and they were very taken by it.
Apples to Apples
A card game that two people can play, or more if you like. The game can last up to a half hour, or even a minute. You never know what is going to happen since the objective to win can change every turn if desired. Right now we own the Monty Python edition and trying to decide which one to pick up next.
