Fun and Games Night - Games, Gumbo & Drinks in Walker

  • December 7, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I thought we could get those of us who like games together one evening to play some fun board games like Trivial Pursuit, cards, Taboo, Pictionary.  or your favorites; with some music, gumbo and drinks.

I always laugh when playing these games with friends. The more interactive for everyone, the more fun.
If anyone has suggestions on what's new out there that's a fun group game, post it.

    Hi, all. Have to change my RSVP to no. Caught a "bug"

    December 6, 2013

    • Terry M.

      Thanks, Nikki. I was looking forward to seeing you! Ha net left my house in 3 days. Yuk!

    Parking: The best place, IMO, is just before you get to the entry gate, AFTER the Rottollo's parking lot, and in front of the building on the right that has a big banner that says "COME IN".
    Once parked, walk in the gate and count the condo roof peaks on the left side of the street. Mine is the eleventh one. Of course, the big red van in my driveway and the number 12285 on the door are also really good clues! (LOL!)

    If there is no room there, call my cell for the gate code and go with what Nancy said earlier.

    1 · December 7, 2013

  • Rob H.

    Fyi, Katina and i will be late. I work until 6 and then have to help my son move something real fast. We will be there as early as we can.

    1 · December 3, 2013

    • Nancy H.

      Got it. Thanks Chris. I wanted to get a couple more bottles of wine this evening. That sounds great.

      December 6, 2013

    • Nancy H.

      Sorry you can't make it. Tl\ke care of yourself.

      1 · December 6, 2013

  • Annette G.

    Sounds Great! Can I bring anything. Keep in mind, Winn Dixie is my cook. Looking forward to the blast!!

    1 · December 3, 2013

    • Nancy H.

      I am happy just to have you all come, but if you want to, you can bring a snack to much on like peanuts or popcorn or chips while we play games.

      December 6, 2013

    • Nancy H.

      I just realized I don't have a vegetable. Maybe a veggie tray or if they have a deli, something from there. I will have Shrimp Remoulade salad. But I have ansvered your kind offer very late and if you don't have time. Just bring yourself!!

      December 6, 2013

  • Melinda

    I'm bringing a dessert! Any suggestions?

    1 · December 3, 2013

    • Nancy H.

      Hey Melinda, anything you want to bring would be great. I will have blueberry cobbler and cheese cake tarts.

      December 6, 2013

    • Nancy H.

      Melinda I just realize you all offered to bring things 3 days ago and I didn't check the page. I am sorry. It is late. If there is no time don't worry about dessert. I didn't mean to cause stress on a Friday of all days.

      December 6, 2013

  • Nancy H.

    I haven't decided on the cocktail yet so if there is a special one anyone likes for the holiday, please feel free to suggest it!

    December 3, 2013

    • Nikki

      Margaritas are an all-season drink. :P

      Thanks Nikki!

  • Christopher

    The games that I plan to bring require 2-5 players. Some of them require a lot of room. Will space be a problem since there are currently 25 people signed up to attend? Also, will you need any help setting up the house?

    1 · December 1, 2013

    • Nikki

      Christopher, you could always just bring what you have and if there's room, there's room. If not, we play something less space hungry. I'm going to *try* to remember to bring Cards Against Humanity and Wolves of Millers Hollow; both are pretty crowd friend.

      2 · December 3, 2013

    • Nancy H.

      Ditto what Nikki said. Parking is posted above.

      December 6, 2013

  • Nancy H.

    Parking. There is also a parking lot before the gate on the right by the landlords house. It is right before the gate and there is plenty of room. Al counted 11 peaks from carports until you reach his place. :) on the left side of the drive.

    December 6, 2013

  • Chris

    Sick..cant make it :(

    December 6, 2013

  • Nancy H.

    FYI: There is parking at the entrance to the town homes on the right side of Village drive, right after entering the gate

    Houston trip was called off so I'll be able to make this one after all.

    1 · December 3, 2013

  • Carolyn B.

    Well, it looks like I'm out again. I just got a call and I will need to go out of town on Thursday for a family emergency. It looks like this was going to be a blast. Let's not wait too long before we do this again. I definitely want to join in on the fun.

    December 3, 2013

  • Terry M.

    I,ll bring something for us to snack on. Not sure exactly what it will be. Lol

      I just tried the Target brand boxed wine - it is actually pretty damn good.

      1 · December 3, 2013

  • Nancy H.

    Okay slight change. The menu is the same and now I have a good wine suggested by Ginger. I will be making a cocktail for the evening , but the rum, vodka, gin and Crown is out. Unless my ex has an extra bottle of Crown given to him for x-mas and gives it to me....(LOL) not likely. Anyway there will be lots of champagne, nice wine and beer plus sodas and a holiday cocktail. So bring whatever hard liquor you like. I just couldn't buy all of those right now so I stuck with the other beverages.
