I've played games for a few years now and have had a great time playing every single one of them!
But occasionally something bad happens while playing them which makes these games stand out even more!
So these are my bad experiences that I have had while playing games.
Feel free to add your own because I would hate for me to be the only one who occasionally has a mishap during a game.

I played a two player game against my wife one day about 2 years ago and we were getting right into the game.
My son, who was very interested in the playing pieces was sitting in the chair next to us and was very content with fooling around with the pieces.
It was a very close game and my wife and me were trying to dominate the board when we suddenly heard my son start crying, we both leap up to see what is wrong and he is touching to his nose.
What had happened was he had shoved a human piece up his nose and could not get it out!
I went into panic mode and started to get ready to go to the hospital while my wife (who is much calmer than I) tried to get the piece out of his nose.
Anyway, two minutes later and a pair of tweezers, removed the human from his nose.
My son seemed happy after that so we resumed the game and she won the game.
Maybe good deeds help you win games!
After that we wait till he has gone to bed to play games with small pieces!

We played a 4 player game with my friends (My wife, me, my friend and his girlfriend).
My friend and his girlfriend are ultra competitive and will try to beat each other in anything!
So this game happened to take over 5 hours because my friend was in front on points while his girlfriend was coming last.
His girlfriend couldn't lose to him and wouldn't stop urbanising, which helped him, my wife and I get more points but put her further behind!
Eventually she gave up on the idea of winning the game!

As I have said in other threads, my daughter loves this game!
She will see my wife and me setting up a game and insist that we play this game next.
Not that I have a problem with this, but she has to win and dances everywhere when she does!
She also pulls a sad face when her fish get eaten!
Here is a picture of her playing Fish eat Fish:

I bought this game a short time ago and my wife and I played a fair few games of this and enjoyed it.
One game that we were playing I was well in front and she got a card she had needed, she put the card down with such energy that another card flipped up and poked her in the eye!
Her eye was blood shot for the next hour!
At first I was concerned, but after she started to laugh I couldn't help myself and laughed as well.

This is another story about my son.
I had picked a good 100pt army to fight my wife and she was starting to pick her army.
I was the empire and she was the rebels, she had picked her team from the cards and was trying to find the figures that matched the cards. My son who had just learned to walk followed her everywhere and while he was with her decided to shove Yoda of Dagobah into his mouth, 10 minutes later we found him in my sons mouth and while he was a bit messed up he was thankfully still usable!

My father in law plays a few games, like chess and checkers but when he comes to visit he likes to play games he doesn't play at all.
My wife and I have introduced him to a few games and his favourite seems to be Sunken City.
One weekend when he came to visit, we set up this game and we were all ready to play it when he all of the sudden wanted to make a coffee, you guessed it, he made his coffee and went to sit down and spilled his coffee all over the board and his cards!
Not to impressed I was but I put that at the back of my mind and tried to save the game.
The board ended up a bit stained which was a tad sad but it is still playable which is what counts right? I mean I don't want to piss my wife off for no reason!
Then again I have brought it up on occasions when I have wanted a new game! (Thats not bad is it?)

Gaming yesterday evening and A&A Battle of the Bulge fell on my head from the top of my shelves (about a 3-foot drop), corner first.

I think it was punishing me for being the only remaining unplayed game in my collection.......
