TL;DR I had an epic night with a small group of friends drinking wine, eating snacks and playing inappropriate card games.
Last night I FINALLY celebrated my 30th birthday with some of my friends 😀 and it was an amazing night. It’s pretty common to mark your 30th with a massive party. And why not! it is a pretty big milestone right! Not me though, I will confess right now that I’m a bit of an introvert. A grand party, with a huge crowd of people is really not my idea of a fun time. No, I’d rather spend an evening with a small group of friends, drinking wine, nibbling on snacks and playing inappropriate card games that leave us in fits of laughter. And so that is exactly what I did.
We had a variety of different card games on hand for the evening, though we only ended up playing two of them. First up was Cards Against Humanity, the game that proclaims it is for horrible people…I don’t know how I feel about that statement. I love the game as do my friends…and I don’t consider us horrible…I consider us hilarious 😜
The other game was a new one for us all, What Do You Meme. A game fit for anyone who likes to make, share or chuckle at Memes (an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by Internet users, often with slight variations). As I said, this one was a new one for us all, and I have to say it was a hit…perhaps I might have to invest in some of the expansion packs.
The other games we had on hand, but didn’t get to this time were:
- Joking Hazard
“From the creators of Cyanide & Happiness comes a card game where players compete to finish an awful comic strip.” I’m yet to play this game.
“One part game, one part conversation starter, you don’t need to be a pun master to master Punderdome: the goal is to make bad jokes and have fun along the way.” This game was a gift for my 30th😃 I can’t wait to play it. My group of friends will have a puntastic time with this one…given their love/hate for puns.
“Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.” I’ve had this game for years, but still have yet to play it!!!
- Exploding Kittens
“A card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.” This game was actually the first gift I ever received from Alex (that is a story for another time).
I can definitely say it was an evening I won’t forget anytime soon. Plus, I really need to be having evenings like this more often! Do you know of any other card games that we should try out? Let me know in the comments below 😃
