Weekend Shenanigans

1 Mar

Hello friends. Sorry that I’ve been MIA for the last few days but one of our university friends has been visiting in Aberystwyth and so we’ve had a weekend of socialising, impromptu cooking fests and late night gaming sessions.
I did NightLight on Saturday too so I’m exhausted!

I’ve recently discovered an amazing new game. Jungle Speed – have you played it? I am obsessed!

It’s basically a complex game of snap. You are dealt a hand of cards with different shapes and colours, each player lays a card in turn around the circle and if your card matches with someone else’s you have to grab the wooden totem pole in the middle of the table. The person who doesn’t grab the totem in time picks up the cards from both people. The person to get rid of all their cards first wins.

However, if two people grab the totem at the same time you have to fight over it which always brings much rolling around on the floor hilarity, scratching, biting, and kicking all depending on  how competitive you’re feeling!  I have bruises on my hand, arm and legs from last night’s shenanigans!

The great thing about it is that each round is over quickly which makes it super addictive as you convince yourself you can win next time; which is why I didn’t get to bed until very late last night!

Have you got any good gaming suggestions?

    Dominion: Intrigue.
    Dominion: Seaside.
    Dominion: Alchemy.

    And when they’re out I’m sure I can add

    Dominion: Prosperity.
    Dominion: Cornucopia.

    I’m sure you’d BOTH love them.
