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.

With a 3 year old one side of us and a 6 year old the other, sleeping bag sex is less tempting these days FannyBazaar. And I like to keep my layers on. grin

You need to get yourselves a left and right sleeping bag if you don't already - zip together and hey presto - a giant sleeping bag - makes sleeping bag sex much easier! Though I always suspect the camp shop people know that's why you want one of each blush

Sniggering at chubby bunnys. That sounds like a most excellent game grin

We play top trumps. Also getting pissed on gininatin while the boys run till they're tired. I'm yet to have any religious visitations on a campsite though brambles, only in a travel lodge in Bournemouth grin

I'm with blondebubble, what is wrong with sleeping bag sex confused? I guess being single and not having it available as an option I am slightly surprised anyone choose to opt out.

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

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

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)

And what's wrong with sleeping bag sex!

<eyes up the custard creams packet>

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

Pissed Jenga. It's the only camping game.

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.

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.

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

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

Chubby Bunnies? Do tell!

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

TeamEdward Tue 30-Apr-13 19:12:07

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

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

purpleroses Tue 30-Apr-13 16:15:53

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

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

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

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

Not even after a couple of beers? grin

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.

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

Nothing to do with me <whistles>

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>
