I am not sure if it is because Gen Con is nigh and we wanted to celebrate, or because Gen Con is nigh and we wanted to save brain power. For one of those reasons we stayed in the gaming shallow end this evening and played a lot of party games.

This week's Geeklist is sponsored by Target.
About the Game on! Game Night: We meet every Tuesday night at Comic Book University in the Greenwood, IN area from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

I think this game is one of those Target exclusive ones. Without having played it, I think you stack sticks.

Janine- Win
Chris- Win
David B.- Lose

I think Allan and Paul played this game. They at least looked at the cards.

Another Target exclusive game came out, and we found out how short six seconds can be.

This game is not yet available at Target, but Target should totally make Oink games Target exclusives.

Thanks to the good people at Target, children of the early 90's can relive their Rockapella fueled nostalgia. For the second week (and I am going to guess last) this game made it to the table at Game Night.

Sean- Caught Carmen Sandiego

Janine, David, John- Did not catch Carmen Sandiego.

This game is not sold in Target stores, but it is available on the website! Paul was the best at making people sick. Thankfully, all Targets have a pharmacy in them.

This game is apparently hard to get, and sadly you can not find it at Target. A friendly note to the designers: "Map" should be one of the words in the decks.

Sean, Becca, and Janine- 8

John, David B, and Chris- 1

Of all the Target exclusive games, this has been the biggest hit. You could say that our group has been a bit promiscuous in playing it. To the point that it is now iconic.

There was so much fun playing this game the first time, that it came back out to end the night. Remember many of these fine games are available exclusively at Target.
