The Twelfth Day of Christmas!
Yes, we are open today, until 4pm – then it’s off to Family Dinners, Christmas Eve Parties and Star Wars (for some of us – no spoilers!).
Game Grid is closed on Christmas AND the day after.
We’ll open again on Friday the 27th for normal hours.
Merry Christmas Eve to everyone!!
After we close, I am heading over to my in-laws for a huge family get together… and almost none of them play games!
I’d like to get them started, plus it’ll give me a way to talk with everyone, so that’s a nice bonus 🙂
I’m thinking about bringing Dude, Codenames, When I Dream, Captain Sonar, Wits & Wagers, Telestrations, or Just One, but I have no idea which one would be the best for everyone to play!
Kind of ironic that after spending the last few days helping people find great games to take home for the holidays I feel completely paralyzed trying to decide which game I should take a gamble on.
Maybe I’ll just pack up all of my Zombicide Expansions and see if I can get them into the Christmas Spirit by slaying hordes of Zombies 😛
Or I could bring Sidereal Confluence and make sure that I’m not invited back next year 😀 (Still one of my favorites, definitely not the game to introduce new players to!)
Maybe a better option would be a brand new game. For Employee Game Night this week, we played SpyFall, Black Skull Island, Wakening Lair & Harry Potter Death Eaters Rising.
Had a ton of fun – we crammed in all 4 in less then 2 hours! – and I think that they all deserve another play through when I’ve got more time, so maybe tonight is the night to roll the dice and see if I can remember the rules well enough to walk my extended family through one of the games I learned last night.
Since I am so indecisive, I’ve decided to let the wisdom of the crowds determine my fate.
Alright, now onto the reason you are all here – The Question of the Day!
What game should I take to my non-gaming family get together tonight??
It doesn’t have to be one of the above, but I do (sort of) know how to play those games, so that’s a plus 😛
What game would you take to introduce to your non-gaming family?
What game are you most excited to play over the holiday break??
Oh, and, of course, the Winners of The Twelfth Day of Christmas are…..
