ice bucket and card games

Well, it's been a fun weekend here as my partner has filled the house with a bunch of her friends from across the country (and beyond) to hang out.  We've been to laserquest, we've played crazy golf, and we've got through a significant amount of alcohol - well done to all!

Several of us also took part in the ice bucket challenge, including myself:


Whilst I thought that the hat and leather trenchcoat would protect me from the worst of the water... it didn't, really.

Pro tip: After you get drenched, change your clothes.  I thought that I would "dry out" over time.

I didn't.

The other thing we've been doing is playing a load of card games, particularly the classic Cards Against Humanity and Munchkin.  Cards Against Humanity I've mentioned in various previous blog posts, but briefly you have a selection of answer cards, which you use to answer questions, with the aim of putting forward the funniest answer.  As the website states "Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people", it's extremely simple to play and very very funny indeed as long your mind can live in the gutter - definitely adults only.

The other game, Munchkin, is a sort of parody of role playing games, and again is great fun - a little bit more complicated than Cards Against Humanity, and it's a very different game, but is brilliant fun.  Basically you have to get your character to level 10, by a variety of means (typically by defeating monsters or selling loot), but you can help or hinder your opponents.  If they're facing a monster that is going to kill them, you could offer to help (in return for some of the loot that the monster drops.  On the other hand, if they are going to easily defeat a monster, you could make that monster a little tougher to kill.  Inevitably it ends up with people at level 9 trying desperately to get that last level, while everyone else starts playing their most evil cards to stop them.

The Travelling Book Project is quiet at the moment, with all of the books now dispatched, but I am at Hull College's Fresher Fair on the 11th and 17th of September, so if you're in the area on those dates do stop by!
