What would you think if you were invited to this?

It is my wedding anniversary soon, and as per usual I am organising things in advance.

I am inviting another 2 couples round for gallons of wine and lots of home made nibbles (all vegetarian as two of them are vegetarians), and also play a game of 1980's trivial pursuit.

The three women get on like a house on fire and have been out on a night out and the men are the same, though they have never been out boozing together.

If you got an invite where you knew it would be good company, good food and wine would you go? I'm just a bit unsure with the trivial pursuit aspect of it, but really fancy it.

Personnally i would run a mile because although I love the lots of booze and food bit I'm really crap to the point of embarassment at Trivial Pursuits

I'll go anywhere with drink

It sounds a great night to me (including the trivial pursuit.. we don't play enough games these days!!!)

It sounds lovely, go for it! What's not to like?

snafu Mon 11-Apr-05 18:56:43

oooh, sounds like my ideal evening

I'd like it - but then I love Triv as I am a mine of useless information

snafu Mon 11-Apr-05 18:58:14

Me too iota - and am pathetically competitive at it

It sounds fantastic!

juniperdewdrop Mon 11-Apr-05 18:58:34

WWW, i usually have nights in with mates with wine, but fancied something different, i am as thick as pig shit and won't get any right, but i think it will be a laugh and dredge up memories of the 80's, which for me is one of the best decades.

I don't want to come across as boring but sometimes i like something different than the television.

Ooh looks like I'm the only one then I would like Scrabble though!!!

Bubbles - we do something like this most New Year Eve's. We always have a great time, starts off nice and civilised with a quiz thingy and this year ended up with us singing on dd's SingStar PS2 game and crippling ourselves on the dance mat (and we are all well over 35)

Can we come?

Sounds good to me. I keep threatening to organise a night with friends where we all drink too much & play silly kids games eg Buckaroo & Kerplunk !!

vict17 Mon 11-Apr-05 19:00:06

or you could make up your own quiz that had fun pop questions etc and not politics/geography which is the bit i'm crap at in Trivial Pursuits

BubblesDeVere Mon 11-Apr-05 19:00:12

Potty, of course you can more the merrier.

snafu Mon 11-Apr-05 19:01:28

Shame it's not Eurovision night - you could all play my famed Eurovision Bingo...

BubblesDeVere Mon 11-Apr-05 19:01:47

Whizzz, i have kerplunk, a large inflatable snakes and ladder, buckeroo, gooey louey ( you see who gets the biggest bogey), operation, caterpillar and monopoly

juniperdewdrop Mon 11-Apr-05 19:07:07

Anyone played Dilemma? It's pants btw just in case you're ever tempted

BubblesDeVere Mon 11-Apr-05 19:07:47

thanks for that juniper

Sounds like a great evening to me Bubblesmedear! Maybe don't mention the games until at least 3 bottles of wine have been consumed between you all, then it'll sound much more fun.

I would be there like a shot.

Where did you say you lived ??

Kayleigh Mon 11-Apr-05 19:32:21

That's just my sort of night. Sounds great.

juniperdewdrop Mon 11-Apr-05 19:34:31
