That was a pretty good weekend.

On Saturday, we had our monthly games night, where we played Settlers of Catan and Cards Against Humanity.
It’s only the second time we’ve played Settlers, but we’re starting to see how it could be a pretty brutal game where it comes to doing over the other players.
Fortunately by the time Richard realised how much I’d scored on the board and potentially what I had in my hand, I was only one round away from winning, and took the game without the others realising I was about to win.
It’s important to try and work how close others are to winning to decide if and how you’re going to trade with them.
Great game.

Yesterday we headed out of Glasgow to climb Dumgoyne a wee volcanic plug of a hill. It might be relatively small, but it’s pretty steep.
We’ve climbed this three or four times in the past, and the views from the top are stunning, but this time we got about 3/4 of the way up, and met the cloud coming down. It wasn’t a good idea to carry on, so we headed back to the car.

Once off the hill it was into the car and up to Aberfoyle for a coffee. We lost Mia en route, as she doesn’t seem to understand that “road closed” and “diversion” means she has to follow the signs, so while we arrived in Aberfoyle, she got lost, ended up back at Dumgoyne, and just headed home.
From Aberfoyle, we decided to stop off in Drymen, seeing as we had to pass it thanks to the diversion.

Finally we headed home to some well deserved dinner and some Netflix.

Games night

On Saturday, we had some friends over for a games night.  Started off with a relic from my childhood, the 70’s classic, Stay Alive.  My copy has actually survived with me from the 70’s, and is still going strong.  For a kid’s game, it really manages to get fully fledged adults using language that wouldn’t (or at least shouldn’t) be used by it’s target audience.
Good fun.

We skipped Zombie Dice this time, and opted for Cthulhu Dice, before deciding to go for broke and getting out Zombies, for full-on apocalyptic mayhem.

All in all, an excellent night.  Next time round I’ll try and get them playing Munchkin.
