Every Friday when the kids are in school I invite the girls over to play games. I have to say it’s been a huge blessing in my life. First of all, I clean my house every Friday knowing that they’ll be here. Second, and most importantly, it’s just a lot of fun. I get to share the games we’ve got and spend some time with friends.
I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of the games we play and the feedback I get from the girls.
Today was a bit of a crazy day. I had a doctor’s appointment this morning and had to push back the start them. So we played a couple of light games. We started out by playing…
Sadly, this game is out of print. The girls were sad to hear that because we had a great time playing it together. We were lucky to trade for it on boardgamegeek.com.
I don’t want to spend a lot of time raving about the game since it’s really hard to get a hold of but it’s a press your luck game where everyone rides in a hot air balloon. The trick is to jump out at the right time.
The second game we played is…
Cash ‘n Guns
Not a game I would generally pick for a girls day, but we had more people here today so I needed a game that could support 6 people and this was right where I could reach it. I wasn’t really sure how they’d feel about the gun pointing either, but I don’t think it bothered anyone.
I think one of the gals felt a little picked on, so I’m not sure if she had a good time or not. In a game like this if you get a lot of points early in the game, you put a target on your back. I think it’s best to lay low and hope nobody notices you getting points.
I may have fumbled through some of the rules a little too and not explained them super well, and that can be frustrating for players. All in all, I think some of the girls loved it, and some tolerated it. For me, this is one of my favorite party games, because it plays a lot of people and nobody has to make a fool of themselves. I’m not a big fan of games that cause you to sing and dance in front of everyone. That’s just me though.
Another great day of playing games with the girls.
