We had a fun board game night at the Gaming with Chuck secret headquarters location.
Admittedly, this followed a role playing session, which featured the intrepid adventurers in our World of Greyhawk campaign finally escaping the perils of Cannibal Island. Of course, the means of escape (teleportation from the bowels of an evil castle on the rim of a fiery volcano) led them to a snowy pass in the Lortmil Mountains. During a blizzard. With dire wolves and yetis closing in. Oh, and Baba Yaga made an appearance (the first of many, in this campaign). But they escaped from Cannibal Island.
Back to the board games - half of the group retired after the RPG session, and dinner from a local pizza and subs shop, but the rest of us were in the mood for some light, fun board games. Here is our play list:
King of Tokyo (I didn't win)
Boss Monster (I didn't win)
Fandooble (I didn't win)
Tsuro (I didn't win)
Fandooble, again (I didn't win)
Web of Power (I didn't win)
There was a theme to those games. But, of course, winning isn't so very important, especially here at GwC. And besides, I got to run an RPG that featured octopus-men, yetis, a statue of Kali, and Baba Yaga, all in the same episode. I really think I won, after all.
