    They also have a non-VR version that two people can play if they have, say, a laptop and a printer available.

    But the VR version allows for such things to happen as “oops, I dropped the bomb, let me pick it up…”Report

    So, I finally broke down and got myself a laptop I can install and play games on.

    For the first time in 20 years, I’ve got a non-Mac.

    Windows 10 is… kind of tolerable. The keyboard is really good, though, unlike the one they’re sticking on the MacBook Pros these days. Those keyboards are some junky-ass shit.

    But once I got my own machine, I immediately ran out and installed Opus Magnum. Let’s just say that @jaybird was totally right about this one.Report

    I was introduced to a little card game called Phase 10 by my student workers at our party last night.

    And by introduced I mean participated in a 5 hour gruelling bout of an 8 player game involving multiple sub-ins and sub-outs, people subbing out, and then coming back an hour later and starting from phase 1 all over again, etc. It was a lot of fun. Seriously, A LOT. We laughed way more, and more loudly, than one might sterotypically think people are allowed to laugh in a library.

    At the time, I said it reminded me of when I was a kid and we’d get bored of our normal games of Go Fish, War, Rummy, Crazy Eights, Hearts, etc., and start digging around in the fine print of Hoyles for something else to do. Since Wikipedia just told me it’s actually a variant of Liverpool rummy (which is a type of contract rummy), I guess that was pretty accurate :D.

    Anyway, if someone asks you if you want to play, say yes, but if there’s more than 4 people playing it might take a long time. Stock up with food and beverages first.Report
