Toss those dice!

People need things to do when they get together, games can serve as an icebreaker, a conversation starter and a way to get to know each other better.

How to:
Leave a comment with name, fandom, preferences
Pick or use to decide what you're doing for the night

1. Board Games - You're sitting around a table, moving pieces around a board. (Monopoly, Sorry, Battleship)
2. Card Games - Deal me in. (Go Fish, Crazy Eights, Poker)
3. Truth or Dare
4. Word Games - Find them, spell them. Rack up as many points as you can (Scrabble, Yahtzee, Taboo)
5. Guessing Games - Whether you're trying to identify an object or what's true, you still have to guess at an answer. (20 Questions, Charades, 2 Truths and a Lie, Pictionary)
6. Party Games - Silly games you get up to at parties. (Twister, Pinatas, Pin the Tail)
7. Drinking Games - You've got your cups lined up and only sobriety on the line.
8. Time Wasters - Because you can only ask "Are we there yet?" so many times. (I Spy, Questions only, the Alphabet game)
9. D&D Night - Getting together for your usual adventure roleplay. Roll for initiative.
10. Free choice

[ No, drinking games please. She's underage. Also a squidkid. ]

[Human games are strange . . . and she's not even playing them with a human.]

[Lapis watches 3 shuffle the cards, looking a little dubious. She's been assured this will be fun, but how "fun" can come from a handful of paper squares with numbers on them, she's not sure. Her fingers fiddle with the stuffed sea slug perched on her lap.]

. . . What did you say the point of this game was, again?

Perfect! XD

[ 3 taps the shuffled deck against her palm and starts dealing out seven cards each. The game had been fun when the others introduced it to her; it was a little similar to games she played back home.

But it still had its weirdness.

We try to match all the cards by asking each other if we have them. I'm not sure what it has to do with fish though. A bunch of cards in a pile doesn't look like the ocean, and the cards don't even have fish on them!

[Lapis takes up the cards that she's been dealt. They definitely don't look like fish. Or anything she can even connect to fish.]

Wouldn't it be easier just to match the cards before dividing them up?

[Missing the point over here.]

[She produces an eight of hearts and a three of diamonds.]

I think these match. Do I win?

No, they gotta have the same number. Those are both just red. You need to find matches like... these!

[ She puts down a 5 of hearts and 5 of spades. ]

See? Same number means they match.

But then there are four different ones that "match."

[Human games are weird. She wrinkles her nose.]

But okay. [She tucks the cards back into place in her hand. Hope you don't have anything that matches those, 3.]

Who goes first?

Yep. You have to get the most matches to win. There's a version of the game where you have to have all four of the cards, but we'll just do two matches.

[ Luckily, 3 doesn't have any of those cards yet, but she'll try to give Lapis a chance to match them herself. ]

You can go first.
