November 28th, 2016... anybody home?

At this week's meeting, only Nina and I showed up. Herr Kandah gave us soda (Danke Kumpel). I brought a mini magnetic chess set I found in my basement so we played that. It ended up being sort of a stalemate/draw because I tried to prolong her suffering too much and ended up in a situation where she wasn't in check but if she moved her king (her last remaining piece) anywhere, she would have been. C'est la vie. The meeting ended a little early at about 3:45 and for the latter half of the meeting we just talked about the Congress Bundestag Scholarship and Herr Kandah's trip to Japan in 2012. Anyway, the next meeting is Monday, December 5th. Also, the joint meeting with Gamer's club is next Thursday, December 8th, but the location has been changed to Herr Kandah's room (Room 618.)

November 7, 2016 Meeting: Taboo & Chess

This week, eight people came to Board Game Club! Max, Nina, Jane, & Julian, plus four new people: Nick, Jaylen, Sean and Joey. Max and Nick started playing chess while Nina, Julian, Jaylen and I began a game of Taboo, which is similar to charades but with words instead of motions and you have to describe a word without using it or a few other words listed on each card. Nick won the chess game and Jaylen's friend Sean walked in during the Taboo game and joined Team A (me and Jaylen). Team B, Nina and Julian, won the game by a whopping 17 points--over twice Team A's score. The final scores were 13 points for Team A and 30 points for Team B. The Taboo game lasted a while, and Julian and Jaylen left when it was over. Then Nina and I played an intense game of chess--I won. The meeting ended at about 4:10 with the conclusion of our chess game. Congratulations to all of this week's winners! See you at the next meeting, on November 14th!
Side note, the joint meeting with Gamer's club has been rescheduled to Thursday, December 8th. It will still be in Mr. Leblanc's room, 2725.
