(blues) Emily The closest we get to outdoor gaming is when we play Werewolf and have too many people to fit inside. Colin O’ Mahoney That’s exactly the kind of game I think would be fun, and suited! I’m sure the reality would be …rainier, but it sure SEEMS like that would fun? Emily We have yet to be rained out (although in Geelong, Australia it is always a possibility). At least if it does rain all you have to do is grab your one character card and run. Quick and easy! Colin O’ Mahoney That’s what those precious, invaluable card sleeves are for! Z-dude Or just play Hive. Water-proof, wind-proof, animal-proof… Colin O’ Mahoney Ooh, I’ve always wanted to get Hive. I went through a period of playing it quite a bit on the tablet, and does have those lovely, heavy, chunky pieces. Good thinking! Stephen M. Schaefer That’s the mantra in Columbus, Ohio, as well. If you don’t like the weather, just wait ten minutes. Colin O’ Mahoney I sure know the feeling… wr00t I have yet to play outdoor at least once. I remember someone brought his Jenga game to the trip to the lake. But everyone was just lazy laying in the sun, and when it is hot, you can’t really concentrate on gaming.
