Two of our favorite game-night friends, Adam and Laura, moved to Virginia last month. We’re bummed because they were always down for dinner and game playing late into the evenings. Plus, they’re the ones with the huge game collection.
They moved the bulk of their things at the very beginning of May, then came back two weeks ago to get the last few boxes and clean the apartment. This left them with plenty of free time in the evenings, so we had 3 last game nights in the space of 5 days.
Monday night, we picked up Ned’s pizza (the best in Ithaca!) and the four of us played Agricola all evening. Pete and Katie joined in on the fun on Waffle & Game Night Wednesday, complete with peanut butter banana waffles, Pandemic and Thunderstone.
Friday was the last hurrah– more Ned’s pizza along with Milles Bourne, Oz Fluxx and one last round of Thunderstone.
I guess this is the final push for us to start building our own game collection– we’re starting with Oz Fluxx and Pandemic, adding them onto the games we received from our Wisconsin game-night friends, Mike and Courtney, as a wedding gift.
We love our game nights. Low-key, no-fuss food is key — we’re much more focused on our games and conversations with great friends. It is all about appreciating the little things.
