    I play Rummy with my old shop blokes. I play Go with my girlfriend. Go is an Asian board game played with black and white stones. It's a game of territory gain. Like chess but a bit less rigid.

    I have no friends where I live now (moved here 6 months ago and i'm not having any luck meeting people) but in TN we had a bi-weekly game night with 2 other couples and we played all sorts of games. The most popular were...

    Hand & Foot (similar to canasta)
    Rumicube
    Spoons
    Othello

    Hand and foot is fun too.

    I prefer to read but the wife is a tv junkie. :(

    I'm with you, Nigal. I read for hours a day. It's cheap and better than the tube.

    Really pretty simple. Get yer group in a circle and start counting off. Whenever the number '7' (multiple/divisible/addition{actually any number connection.. what-so-ever}) comes up..that person must say "Buzz". If not..the penalty is usually a chug.

    You and me both. I was terrible at drinking games because by the time they started I was passed out some where I shouldn't be (backyard, abandoned RV,whatever).

    Jenga is fun I'm missing one piece from it though so every one starts with a handicap.

    LOL...Or close to it. Seems like that's bout the only time these games would start and make any sense.:rolleyes: Funny as hell seeing grown men & women trying to remember arithmetic.

    I remember - vaguely - playing a G-rated version of that in 7th grade, the 'Buzz' is triggered by a number that either contains a 7 or is a multiple of 7. If you got it wrong you were eliminated, last one standing was the winner.
