Wined, Dined and sharp of mind.

Ah, I love the smell of dehydration in the morning. Methinks my enthusiasm for the creamy pasta and wine provided last night by darkpoint and realtan at their lovely place in Penge has left me feeling a little world weary this morning.

easterbunny and I trundled along (after some navigational wavering on both our parts) and were met with tasty foods, pleasant conversations and perplexing boardgames. Got to meet Helen, their roommate (WINOLJ?), who seems lovely and suitably random to fit nicely into their household. :)

Discovered that the bunny and I could easily become board game geeks with little to no effort, and that the Loonie Labs product range is certainly in need of further exploration. Rocking evening guys, thanks heaps!

In other news, I'm off to join B this evening up in Cambridge for further tasty food and a night in a very pleasant looking B&B, followed by a weekend of music (the playing/singing of) and a mission to finish billyabbott's whisky. Splendid.

Exelent to have you so to speek... must do that again at some point, possiably when we don't all have school the next day..

and Yes Helen (Moo) is WINOLJ
My copies of chrononauts and fluxx are sitting in my lounge should the urge to flex your game playing skills arise at the weekend.

Note to self: Learn Go. or at least buy a Mahjonngggg set so you can look at the pretty tiles.
Go is a great game,..

but I still haven't worked out completely how to explain to anyone else how to play
Mahjong, god, I went through a phase where I played that loads, and now I can't remember for the life of me how it's played.
looovveeee Looney Labs...

full stuffage for those who haven't a clue what we are talking about HERE

Gaming evening sounds fab - and having you to stay over on a non school night would be fun - just tell us when and then I get to cook Beef in Guinness Stew with mountains of buttery cream mashed potatoes...

[Realtan goes for the hard sell]
*droool* - sounds like a plan to me. Perhaps in the new year once we've gotten over the Xmas season and its excesses.
> Loonie Labs

Andrew Loonie is one cool dude. But he has produced a few duds.

But we could say that of every gaming company - and I bet most people disagree to which are the 'duds' ;-)
Absolutely. I don't agree with his whole hippie thing. I think Stoner Fluxx is pointless and Aquarius looked a bit dull. But Fluxx itself is great and Chrononauts is perhaps the best science fiction time travel card game ever!

If everyone thought a game was crap then they wouldn't make any money or sell it
Can't imagine having that much fun on a school night. Sounds like a fantastic evening. The only board games I have played lately are Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders.
The game I played last night was Martian Chess. Eeevil mind-f**k of a game if you're a chess player (and the wine didn't help any). Most enjoyable. We'll have to play some flux next time we're in Nashvegas.
You should check out them crazy German board games; I believe Playin' Games stocks quite a few of them, translated into English and republished by an American company. Eemeli is quite a big fan of them and, by necessity, so am I. :p
