The Fun and Games Thread

Qwixx: One of the favorite games played at Shakes Manor!

Recently, I solicited ideas for new fun/nonpolitical community discussion threads. Shaker GoldFishy suggested a "fun and games" thread, where we could all share "new [or not] board games, card games, video games, etc. Also, we have this amazing new VR arcade near us that I can't wait to visit...stuff like that."

So! Here is a thread for discussion of all things gaming: Board games, card games, video games, dice games, role-playing games, strategy games, party games, whether you play in groups or on your own. Tell us all about the games you love!

Pictured above is my Qwixx game card, filled out after a recently completed game. It's a great dice game — simple and fast and a whole bunch of fun. Iain and I have been playing a lot of Qwixx lately. There's definitely some strategy to it, but it's just enough to keep the game interesting and not so much that it demands a whole lot of mental energy to play it. I really enjoy it.

What game(s) have you been playing lately?
