It all started with a pre Ike gaming party that attracted a lot more than the usual crowd. Then after the insanity of the storm I moved onto boardgames by candlelight.

With no power and limited water pressure, I've relocated to a friend's house in the country. Hopefully there will be more gaming later this evening.

We thought of playing 'Category 5' but it seemed a little too real.

Something light while we waited for people to arrive

There's nothing like impending doom to make you play silly games.

We had so many people we split into 2 groups. This never happens on game nights when there isn't a hurricane!

My group played this.

This was the first game we played in the aftermath of Ike. I've owned it for two years, it just took a hurricane to get me to play it

It seemed appropriate. Houston definitely got 'stomped' by Ike.

Something to do play when you have a lot of time on your hands - though the rules and the lack of air conditioning definitely over heated my brain!
