GameAholic Special!® "The Funniest BOARD GAMES Gathering in Maidenhead"
Let's welcome the new year with fun and giggles! "GameAholic!"® - The Funniest Board Games Gathering in Town. I will bring a few board games among my extensive collection If there is always a luck factor in the games we play (" Incan Gold (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Incan-Gold-Quest-Riches-Ruins/dp/B001TH8LCW/ref=sr_1_2?s=kids&ie=UTF8&qid=1314012603&sr=1-2)" is a good example), there is usually a strategic side to them (" Escape from the Aliens in outer space (http://www.escapefromthealiensinouterspace.com/)", " 7 Wonders (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Incan-Gold-Quest-Riches-Ruins/dp/B001TH8LCW/ref=sr_1_2?s=kids&ie=UTF8&qid=1314012603&sr=1-2)", Carcassonne (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rio-Grande-Games-RGG170-Carcassonne/dp/B00005UNAX/ref=sr_1_1?s=kids&ie=UTF8&qid=1314014435&sr=1-1)"...) but they're always a lot of fun and interactive (" Jungle Speed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jungle_Speed)" or Time's Up (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/36553/times-up-title-recall) surely are!). During the evening we usually play 2 brand new games (don't worry: Jarek is a master at explaining the rules and yes, he knows them by heart!) and finish with a classic that everyone keeps asking for such as " Gambit 7 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Days-of-Wonder-Gambit-Board/dp/B002IIE8UA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314012865&sr=8-1)" or " Dixit (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asmodee-Editions-5511302-Dixit-Board/dp/B001OH9EDW/ref=pd_sxp_grid_i_0_1)". The Bear has very good value for money meals and deals.
