Geek Out!  
So, apparently this weekend was Gaming Weekend around my house. Yesterday, Sis and I played 3 rounds of Smashup and I won, best out of 3! I can count on my fingers the number of times I have beat my sister at any games in our lives, so that was awesome. I got to be Ghost Aliens and Steampunk Robots and Shapeshifting Minions of Cthulhu.

Also, on Saturday, we had Geek Cousin and his girlfriend over. We played this one roleplay tabletop game where we had to fight off the bad guys and my character was a cyber-punk Eddie Redmayne. (I swear, that’s who he looked like!) GC’s character died and he told us we had to flee and I was all, “Fuck that, let’s fight to the end!” and he was like, "No, really, it’s in the rules, if one person dies, you have to flee.” I was like, "What kind of fellowship is this? What if when Boromir died Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli had just been like, ‘Oh well,’ and run away?!” So we ran and then GF died and GC was like, “You don’t escape, game over,” and again I was like, “What? No! Sorry, but we just leave her body behind and keep running,” and he was like, “Again, it’s in the rules, if one of you dies while fleeing, the game is over.” What kind of game is this?!

We also played this game called Geek Out which is AWESOME and we plan on buying it for ourselves. In it you get cards like, ‘Name 3 Avengers,’ and then your team gets to say, “Yes, we can do that,” and then the other team gets to outbid you, “Well, we can name 4,” and then you can counter, “We can name 5,” etc, until someone calls the other team’s bluff and then you have to name whatever you bid. Name 3 movies where a child is sucked into an alternate reality. Name 6 movies about alien invasions. Name 3 books about horses. Name 5 songs with Hell in the title. Etc. One of the things we got was name 6 Walking Dead characters. My sister and I kept outbidding each other until finally she called me at 26 characters and I had to do it. It was easy. I was only halfway through the characters in my head when I hit 26!

So I’m wondering, for my Walking Dead peeps, how many characters can you name? No cheating! I trust you not to look it up on IMDB. The person who names the most characters gets a TWD fic from me, how’s that? Name as many TWD characters as you can - Go!

I bet that RPG is set up like that so it can be done in one night, instead of as a campaign that might last months or years, as they are wont to do.

Sounds like it was an awesome weekend!

Geek Out sounds like an awesome game. Do you have plans to see Jupiter Ascending? I think you and Jessie would enjoy it a lot since its pretty and silly and a complete ride of a movie.

It is! J bought it, so we can play next time you are here visiting.

Actually M went and saw it by herself one day because she was having a bad weekend and needed something light and fun, and she LOVED it. Says it is a fangirl's dream come to life. So the next weekend we were set to go, all three of us, but it was the week I had the UTI and like 3 different appts and by Saturday I was wiped out, so I opted out. J went with her and came back and was like, "You need to see this movie. You need to understand about the dogman and the rollerblades, okay. This movie was made for you." Now I regret not going but I just didn't have the spoons. If it sticks around for another two weeks, I might be able to talk someone into seeing it with me.

I can name 0 Walking Dead characters. But that game still sounds like fun and I just put it in my Amazon shopping cart. Sounds like a great thing to bring with me to my next Con.

Geek Out is the perfect game to bring to a con!! Oh yes. We are actually having a Gaming Party on the 18th for all of my sister's geeky coworkers - they work in Record's Management, ofc they're giant geeks - just to play Geek Out. I'll be excited to play it with a large group.
