We had a great time with our first Game Night on November 5th. We had 11 people show up at various times to take part! Thanks to everyone who came for making the first night such a success.
First up was a game of Fluxx (see the Featured Games section) while we were waiting for some more people to arrive.
Next, we played Betrayal at House on the Hill. This is a tile game in which players are explorers a creepy house. At some point in the game, one of the players is found out to be a traitor (who it is is a surprise to everyone including the traitor). At that point the remaining explorers play against the traitor in one of 50 different scenarios. This game was a new one to me, but is definitely be one that we will be stocking! It’s that good.
After that we played Carcassonne, another tile game (that was apparently the theme of the night). Players lay out tiles that create the board on their turn. They can then try to claim cities, roads, etc. When the claimed cities, roads, etc are completed by other tiles being played, players score points accordingly.
We finished out the night with Wits and Wagers. Everyone writes down the answer (always a number) to a question, then wager on who was closest to the correct answer without going over. This is a great party game that can often be played in about 30 minutes.
At this point Kristen and I want to take a moment to thank everyone again for journeying with us, either in prayer, by joining us at the store, or following us on Facebook and/or the website. You all are very important to us!
Finally, this has been a very interesting week. We have had some exciting opportunities present themselves, so please stay tuned. We will announce them as things become more concrete!
