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.

Go fish; gin rummy; Scrabble?

Slubberdegullion Mon 29-Apr-13 16:51:23

Charades grin

Some sort of competitive craft.

Travel scrabble.

I dunno, umm, how many biscuits can you insert in your mouth at the same time?

<thinks on>

We got Pit at Christmas too as well as Monopoly Deal. I like Pit (v shouty!) but the MD is much better and much more evil.

Some of those games sound like fun Slubber.

My sister has rapidough and that is hilarious for a group. you get into teams and one person has to mould what's written on the card for the team mates to guess.

I'm not sure how it would go with just a couple though?

You need a travel version of Blockbusters.

For the record, I don't do fucking craft. wink

Particularly in a tent.

I do always take a good book though.

Slubberdegullion Mon 29-Apr-13 17:45:15

Well that's a shame Notters as you are potentially missing out on all sorts of cheap and wholesome fun.

Me, I just get ratted and see if I have any religious experiences.

Quite right, wolfcub.

The only "craft" I would partake of whilst camping would be participating in a Pimms Masterclass.

You could craft hats out of leaves and other found objects, Notters.

Maybe you could organise a competition to see who can have the biggest wood, funtimes?

Bramblesinafield Mon 29-Apr-13 19:22:07

We also like the one word at a time story game. Adding one word at a time. Usually whilst drinking crabbies, staring at the sky. Sighs.

Ffuntimewincies Mon 29-Apr-13 19:29:05


And who says that camping is dull?

Is banangrams like scrabble?

Making a hat from foraged foliage and surprised small mammals is only one small step away from wriggling around in the mud and pretending you're in a vietnamese jungle imo. You're probably right in your stance Notters.

Last August we pitched near a caravan with a ginormous telly in it and spent a fun evening watching the Paralympics through their window, providing our own commentary to make up for the lack of sound.

Oi - I'm not Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now, you know!

nottersgotterdonkey Mon 29-Apr-13 20:21:12

Just re-read.

"Right in your stance" - you meant YY Notters, for you are wise.

Not, "right in your stance" = that's you, that is.

<gets coat>

Slubberdegullion Mon 29-Apr-13 20:30:57

Oh Quenelle, making your own sound track to next door's tv has given me the sad face.

LostInCaveysAnus Mon 29-Apr-13 20:33:36

I like telling a good joke always sets the tone. Anyone know any about cheese?

LostInCaveysAnus Mon 29-Apr-13 20:34:32

A good book to make DH laugh is always a good move too notters.
