    Don't forget to try it!

    Actually I had a game on Sunday and it didn't end very well. Whatever you do, try to ensure you don't play with cheating bastards.

    That's a standing rule. I also don't play with people that don't want to have fun. :-)


    Easier said than done for some people.

    I think it is a common problem in some groups that a member will bring
    his girlfriend or whoever to the game session, and the newcomer will
    screw the flow or ruin the game otherwise, and there is not much you
    can do without getting the member angry.

    Couple of things - first, yeah, that's a hard one sometimes. :-( We are planning a 'game night' at church and I'm hoping it doesn't turn into
    a mess. LOL - I know some of them like Rook, so I'm bringing a couple of
    decks, but I'm also bringing Ticket to Ride, Betrayal at House on the Hill,
    and (one of my favorites) Codenames! Wish me luck! :-)

    Second - since I last posted on here, I've been doing more and more coding
    for Divine Right on VASSAL... Man, that's a rabbit hole for sure!

    Ticket to Ride is a good one for starters. People picks it up quite fast, and usually don't get angry at backstabbings :-)

    Agreed! Played Sagrada two nights ago for the first time. Was fun, but
    only two of us... Last night TSURO - again, was super fun (more than
    Sagrada, IMO) but only 2 of us... Wouldn't mind picking that up to keep
    and/or bring to church game night!
