Laurie Menke's Event Reports (5)

Gaymer X

I just realized that I never did an Event Report for Gaymer X!  What was I thinking???

Gaymer X was the first ever gaming convention specifically for LGBT folks, and was held in San Francisco on August 3rd and 4th, 2013.  This was my first gaming convention ever as well, so I can't compare it to others.  But I have been told that it was one of…

Choose One Demo Three

I got my third chance to demo Choose One on Saturday, November 2, 2013.  Some friends and I have a monthly game day, and we were looking forward to trying this newest Looney Labs game, as we have enjoyed several others in the past.  Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts made this group smaller than usual this month, with only three participants.  But we still had a great time!

Positive comments:

--"Cool bag!"

--Enjoyment of the game pieces.  One participant:…

Fluxx: The Board Game--Various Demos

I purchased Fluxx: The Board Game at Gaymer X in San Francisco on August 4th. Since then I have played it with five children aged 7-11, my gaming group which consisted of 5 middle-aged women, and a retired couple. I did not get individual event reports written up, so I'm summarizing now.

F:TBG is fairly easy to adapt to if you are familiar with the original Fluxx card games. Even without that prior knowledge, it only takes about ten minutes to be up and running, and players are…

Ernie (Max's dad) plays maybe one or two games a year, so it was great that he was interested in playing not once, but twice! Then after he went to bed the remaining three of us played another two games. It was definitely a hit!

Max's response to the Dragons or Unicorns card: "Yes, please!!!" LOL! We established a house rule that you had… Continue

Choose One Demo One

I celebrated Choose One Launch Day (Friday, October 20th) by playing a game with my in-laws. We had had a long afternoon and evening out, and my mother-in-law said she was too tired to play. I said, "OK, but can I show you the cool game pieces?" I got out the black velvet bag and dumped the pieces into my hand. "Look at the cute house and car... And the sparkly gemstone. And I love this actual metal nut." At this, my father-in-law came over to look. "Hmmm... Those are cute," says my… Continue
