Game Night

16 Sep


Friday Night we had Game Night at Gina & Preston’s house.

It had been about a month since I was at their house so I was in shock when I was greeted by Barrett.

Barrett is their 10 month old “baby” Great Dane.  Last time I saw him, which only about a month ago, he was at least 3 inches and 30 pounds smaller than he is now!  He weighs 140 pounds and, as you can tell from the picture, is much taller than me.  Given I am only like 5’1″ but still…He’s HUGE!

We started off game night by playing LCR.  I had never played this game before but it was very simple.  LCR is a dice-rolling game in which you start out with 3 dollar bills.  You roll 3 dice and you pass or keep your money depending on what the dice read.  L=Left, C=Center, R=Right, and Dot=Keep.  Whoever is the last player holding money, gets the Center pile!

Barb, Skip, Preston, Gina

Of course, as you’ve seen with my previous dice-rolling skills from Bunco, I am terrible at these type of games.  In a span of maybe 10 minutes, I lost 9 bucks.  Next time, I would like to play with quarters instead of dollar bills.

Then we moved on to Apples to Apples.  This game involved no money being wagered so I was a much happier camper.


And it was a good thing that no money was wagered because I didn’t collect a single green card the whole time.  Even Barbara, who was having the hardest time understanding the point of the game, won a couple of green cards.  I swear I am usually really good at games…

Barb and Skip left, then Paige, Neva, Korey, Kelsi, Morgan, and her little sister showed up.  (Somehow I didn’t get a picture of everyone.)  We played a little more Apples to Apples.  This time, I did a little better, but still not great.

We played some Catch Phrase and I am proud to say I am great at this game!  Probably because it involves yelling out random things but that’s a minor detail.

We played games for a few hours but then Gina got sleepy.

Gina thought that Barrett looked pretty comfortable and decided she wanted to cuddle with him.  Precious.

It was a fun night with friends and I vote many more game nights in our near future!
