CHirstmas Party 2013 - 10th December

Post  Aneurin on Sat 16 Nov 2013, 08:15

Thinking about organising a Christmas party on one of the Tuesday evenings in December. I'll try and find out if we can get some catering done at the Redhouse... maybe just a small buffet. Then we can have some party games with a prize...

Thoughts? Especially on party games we can run a knock-out league on? Pitch Car maybe?


Ok after speaking to club members at the Redhouse last night it was decided that we would all bring a dish of something to the Xmas do and create our own buffet. The idea is to spend around £3-5 each. Some people bring savoury, some sweet, some crackers and silly hats (we can form a list to help decisions).  Jeff is cool with this so we are a go...

I will try and get Pitch-car (from Neil) for the night - any other party games welcome so we can run a small on the night competition. Club funds can just about stretch to a small prize for the overall winner of whatever games we play...

Should be a good do.

We just need to pick a date.... hence the poll and the e-mail directing you here.

Good idea, hopefully Jeff can accommodate something.

I think it was Kes that suggested last week that it might be a good idea to use a game that we have more than one copy of, is that the case with pitch car?

So further to this...

I have contacted Jeff and in short we have 3 options:

1) Redhouse Organised Cold Buffet £7.50 each
2) Redhouse Organised Cold Buffet 'with extras' £10 each
3) Bring our own buffet...

I think number 3 is a good idea as people just show up with a dish of something and we all share. We used to do this at work for our Xmas do and it generally works ok given a small list of essentials. What do people think?

Don't think I can make it next week so if you can 'remind' people to vote or do a show of hands for each day that would be advantageous...

Although if people don't use the forum then sorting out what dish everyone is bringing could be tricky!

I can do all 3 probably, but 10th is best for me (Couldn't see how to show this in the vote)

I have pitchcar mini plus an expansion if it helps

I also have Tumbling dice and a spreadsheet from when i did as a tournament with a youth group (Probably could find the spreadsheet)

Trying to think of good game that can accommodate more people and/or move a bit quicker. These are the ones I can think of but I'm sure there are more.
Anyone have any other suggestions for more party, less strategy games?

Coup
Escape: The Curse of the Temple
Hey, That's My Fish
Geistesblitz
Tsuro
Saboteur
King of Tokyo
Jungle Speed
Panic Lab
Ca$h 'n Gun$

Formula Car Racing is a good one...

Escape and Bang? Well the former is co-op (although would be fun to play as a party'ish game) and the latter... I wouldn't say it's quick Wink

I quite liked the idea of Ultimate werewolf... similar to bang but quicker... how about Shadow hunters?
Ermmm...

I'm organising PitchCar...

Dixit (although Jon would go mad)
Neuroshima Hex (4 player)
X-wing with each player taking an X-wing and every man for himself... no idea how turn order would happen? Cards?
Polarity (2/4 player) for the final game

Ave Caesar would be a good one, it's quick and plays 6. I've got it and I'm assuming you do too, Tim?
