Theme Thursday - THANKSGIVING!!

  • Nov 22, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!!

If you get the urge to play a game, perhaps you don't have anyone locally with whom to spend the holiday, or frankly, you just need a break from the relatives that drive you nuts every holiday: COME ON OVER!!

Instead of trying to find a different date for this week's meet-up, I decided to leave it on Thursday. However, I am changing the location. Our usual meeting place will be closed for the holiday, so we are opening our home to the group. There will not be a theme, per say, just a time to ge together and play.

We will have drinks on hand, and a few snacks(no turkey), but you are welcome to bring some additional stuff, if you like.

    Bought forbidden island and taught my granddaughter (age 10) to okay. We love it. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I introduced my family to Settlers Of Catan and Carcassonne. We are playing games together in Thanksgiving day. What other games do you guys recommend for family tine? Age ranges are 10 &15 to 74. My husband has nixed Ticket to Ride because he hates trains (some childhood trauma/stupid prejudice lol). Inky problem.. Need to find it for Thursday. Suggestions?

      Finding a quality game within just a few days can be hard. But what comes to mind immediately is BLOKUS and BLOKUS:TRIGON, both sold at stores like Target. APPLES TO APPLES is always good, and that's at Wal-Mart, etc. If you had more time, TSURO is a favorite of mine in the family genre, as is IN A PICKLE

      FOrbidden Island is a good game, and a good choice, too, by the way.

    Debbie, could you please bring Kingsburg? I haven't played that in ages.

    Hey, Debbie, so glad you can make it. We miss you too.

    Rich, while I appreciate your position, let's try and keep the discussions on these pages, to that particualr meet-up (i.e who is coming, games being brought, games planning to play). This should be posted on the forums.

    Actually, now that I think of it, this is seriously related to our group. There are ton of members who come only when they are unemployed, because even a part-time job often demands full-time commitments these days.

    This link doesn't seem game-related, but it directly affects one of our members. This is an NPR broadcast (listenable) featuring Target open mandatory on Thanksgiving, but also is a great discussion of a part-time work economy. They say less than 25% of Americans have a "normal" job, full-time, M thru Fri, 9-5
