Chess is out for us (dh used to compete to quite a high standard and won't play with 'one move ahead' me) and bridge does my head in. Again, dh is really good at it. Actually ANY card games involving complicated/predictive maths is out as it will end in Words.

So prompted by Slubber's thread about Monopoly Deal grin, I was wondering what else people play of a rainy evening.

Ffuntimewincies Mon 29-Apr-13 20:37:52

I like the idea of hogging someone elses telly grin.

Cavey, you've got a caravan I seem to recall. Can we all pitch up and gurn at your box?

LostInCaveysAnus Mon 29-Apr-13 20:41:51

<pssssst funtimes it's not Cavey, it's me, can you remember how I ended up with this NN? I am baffled>

Ffuntimewincies Mon 29-Apr-13 20:45:07

Not a clue, sorry grin.

Shhh, don't tell Cavey then. She might close the curtains and we'll have to play Pictionary instead.

Oooh, good call NumTum grin. Now that's what I call making your own entertainment!

CaveyLovesPendleton Mon 29-Apr-13 21:05:58

Erm, wtaf is going on with my anus?

Ffuntimewincies Mon 29-Apr-13 21:12:14

We're all oggling it Cavey and making up our own soundtrack in the name of entertainment grin.

It was all Quenelle's idea! <runs>

LostInWales Mon 29-Apr-13 21:20:11

Nothing to do with me <whistles>

CaveyLovesPendleton Mon 29-Apr-13 21:23:38

Well that's OK then grin

One game I do not recommend is this fucking hideous Peppa Pig game - it makes me want to commit hara kiri.

Ffuntimewincies Mon 29-Apr-13 21:24:42

Not even after a couple of beers? grin

LostInWales Mon 29-Apr-13 21:43:22

I've got to admit this thread has me wracking my head now, we are obviously very unwholesome as we tend to eat late as poss then drink until we are sleepy blush

Bramblesinafield Mon 29-Apr-13 21:50:33

Yep we follow the losters' model. Cook over the fire, chat, fall asleep.

Or lie in bed with books and head torches or illuminated kindles.

or a DVD on the player wholesome

Bananagrams definitely - it's a bit like scrabble, but simpler, against the clock and great fun for any number of players.

Kahlua4me Tue 30-Apr-13 19:05:13

Bananagrams, shut the box and cards for us. Shut the box is my favourite as you can chat inbetween goes.
Dh says he can't wait to go camping now after me reading out all these games. Think he has other games that are his favourite wink

What about Chubby Bunnies? Hours of fun for all the family until someone chokes to death on a partially digested marshmallow

Uno Extreme is always a success under our canvas :-)

Ffuntimewincies Tue 30-Apr-13 20:33:26

Chubby Bunnies? Do tell!

HarrietSchulenberg Tue 30-Apr-13 20:36:49

Boggle. Shut the Box. Mancala. Used to play Othello but can't remember the rules now.

TeamEdward Tue 30-Apr-13 21:03:53

Chubby Bunnies.
1) Everyone takes turns to put a marshmallow into their mouth. DO NOT SWALLOW.
2) Say "Chubby bunnies".
3) Repeat. Ad nauseum.

Winner is the person who can hold the most marshmallows in their mouth and say Chubby bunnies without spewing out marshmallow or choking.

My personal record is 17.

I saw Gwyneth Paltrow play chubby bunnies on a cookery programme recently. It totally changed my opinion of her, she beat the other presenters by miles even though she was laughing so hard she could barely say 'chubby bunny'. Respect.

DaveMccave Tue 30-Apr-13 23:14:42

Pissed Jenga. It's the only camping game.

Ffuntimewincies Wed 01-May-13 11:59:14

That's an impressive total TeamEdward!

I've played a similar game with biscuits, setting a personal best of 6 custard creams (or was it 7?) grin

TeamEdward Wed 01-May-13 13:45:02

<eyes up the custard creams packet>

blondebubble Wed 01-May-13 13:48:41

And what's wrong with sleeping bag sex!

AvrilPoisson Wed 01-May-13 20:09:22

heheh- maybe teamedward is gwynnie?? wink

We always play loads of cards, mainly chinese poker, banangrams no good as the tiles just get lost! (No table)

TeamEdward Wed 01-May-13 20:34:58

<eyes up macro-biotic custard creams>

AvrilPoisson Wed 01-May-13 21:00:16

It's such a shame my children don't like marshmallows sad

(cos DH and I get to eat them all when camping! grin)
