Board Games Pack up for Grabs this Week

Winner – Ming Dao Ting.

The game was THINGS and the topic was “Things that will get you arrested”. One of the submissions was “Jaywalking naked while committing fraud”. Everyone paused, then laughed so hard we ended up crying. Funniest still when we realised the writer was my quiet introverted wife!

  1. my friend and i were playing monopoly talking about our friends and lives and we were a bit bummed about no one else wanting to play with us and my friend said something funny so we started to laugh and we couldnt finish the game because we were laughing

  2. Playing Race for the Galaxy, when one player did an enthusiastic victory dance only to realise that he had only placed his eleventh card (and therefore not ended the game) and then to go on to be soundly beaten in the scores!

  3. Playing Heroquest, the dwarf player was having bad luck with his dice rolls. He made a last ditch attempt to disarm a trap. He failed and died. The player stood up and started yelling at the dwarf mini as if the mini was at fault and then stormed out. 🙂

  4. Howling in victory when I allowed a nuclear strike through to obliterate the Battlestar Galactica. I had tricked all of the human players into putting each other into the brig. I was the only one left on deck when the revealed Cylon sent the nukes!!! 😀

  5. my brother and i playing crossbows and catapults as children(he is ten years older)anyway he double lacca banded the crossbow and i chick a massive crying fit yelling at him for cheating then we both collasped in a fit of laughter at how silly it all was

    My wife and I were playing risk with some friends, after an hour or so two including my wife were out and the other player and I wanted to finish. After an hour we decided to finish and my wife said ‘finally’ and swept the board clear over the floor

  8. I was playing my new favorite board game Tobago with a friend. Being a newbie, I accidently played a card that eliminated all possible treasure locations (illegal). Jokingly, I pointed at the board and yelled passionately, “YOU LIED TO ME… YOU LIED!”

    We were playing Chaos Marauders and someone was going to close their army line safely but got greedy and launched an attack on a much weaker army line. He rolled the Eye of Chaos and everyone burst out laughing loudly.

    One of my younger sisters once threw a tantrum about the player order of our Monopoly game- she insisted we were going in a ‘house shape’ when my mother said we were going in a circle (essentially the same shape). She upset the board and left the room. It’s funny in hindsight- Even she has a laugh at it when we bring it up

  11. The game was THINGS and the topic was “Things that will get you arrested”. One of the submissions was “Jaywalking naked while committing fraud”. Everyone paused, then laughed so hard we ended up crying. Funniest still when we realised the writer was my quiet introverted wife!

  12. But you didn’t tell us we were only playing to 15 cities with 5 players! (Powergrid)

  13. At AGE 2009 one player arrived late for the Settlers tournament. He watched 30 minutes then flipped the table!!! He was ousted from the tournament

  14. During a holiday last year with some friends, we eventually started playing Citadels. One of my friends hadn’t played the game before, as he wasn’t able to make it to the only other gathering where it had been played. After explaining how to play, the game descended quickly into silence for quite some time, and I was beginning to worry that he wasn’t enjoying the game much at all, until a few turns later when he launched into a ten-minute explanation of all of the possible reasons we could have chosen our characters, catching us all off guard.

  15. (From our Rouge while playing DND and with a voice bordering on tearful)- ‘I can’t, I haven’t got enough stealth!”
