Games Night

It is the Holiday season, and that means family time, friends over and TV marathons.

But in this little house of craftiness it also means tabletop games!

Uno Tournament, there may have been timeouts required.

I have a limit on the amount of time I sit in front of a screen and, as a typical tyrannical paternal figure, I impose this limit on my family as well.

So we play tabletop games, and we play lots of them.

Over the years I have figured out that if I am crafting to a deadline then long drawn out tabletop RPGs are what I need. All that talking and game play doesn’t require me to use my hands to move pieces and I can work on my WIP in peace.

But even I need to put down my crafty supplies and get really into a game.

One family favourite is Apples to Apples, a game of comparisons.

But after the younger generation retires, then the adults can relax a little and a similar, though vastly different game comes out; Cards Against Humanity plays in a similar fashion as Apples to Apples, but has a more risqué theme.

And, in true board games fashion there are add ons!

I have found, for this winter’s crafty gamer, the perfect add on for your Cards Against Humanity bigger, blacker box; the Knitters Against Swatches add on.
