You often hear about poker nights and bridge clubs, but there are many other games people socialise over. Dungeons and Dragons is still going strong, and let's face it, a lot of kids like to sit around playing the Xbox together. I'm in a mah jong group, and we like to have lunch or dinner and play few games. I also organise a big game of Pictionary once a year (for Drawtism).
Do you know of any other social games, that bring people together? Is it something you do regularly?
Yes, whenever I can. I play tabletop role playing games (Dungeons and Dragons is one example, but I don't like it, there are loads of other RPGs in different genres, with my favourites being The Call of Cthulhu a pirate game called Seventh Sea and a time travelling Kung Fu adventure game called Feng Shui). I also like board games (last week some friends came over for a game of Power Grid) and card games.
It's a great way to socialise and have fun. I'm looking forward to the kids being old enough to join in, since at the moment we can pretty much only play when they're being babysat or asleep or they will constantly interrupt or flip the board over.
