A Tabletop Sunday

game

Yesterday, I met up with two friends and had a fun afternoon. We had a fantastically hearty (and fatty!) lunch of fish n’ chips and then for dessert we had sweet drinks like milk tea and milkshakes and tabletop games. Now, I’m not really a person who plays tabletop games a lot but I had fun with the two games my friends brought. The one in the picture up there is called Gobblet and it’s basically like tic-tac-toe  but a bit more complicated as you have to complete a row by using four game pieces and it’s actually possible to defend pieces or “eat” them by covering up your own or your opponent’s pieces. Of course there’s some strategy involved and it took a while but I was actually able to win a game. 😀

The other game was called Flirt and it’s a card game. The link will lead you to a better explanation of the game than any effort of mine will yield. What you need to do in Flirt is to be able to steal another player’s set of three heart cards. Funny how that sentence sounds because you are really playing this game to win some hearts. The game’s premise is about romantic relationships and how your stats (charm, intelligence and wealth) are able to win over the other person’s heart(s). The game makers say it is appropriate for players 13 years old and above and I guess it makes sense. You’ll really only be able to appreciate the game if you’ve ever had romantic feelings for someone else and that age is just about right.

So that was a lot of fun. 😀 Hopefully I’ll be able to get together with those set of friends again soon so we could play some more. Maybe on January and we’d invite more friends to join us.
