The premise of this annual party is to play one round or turn of each game. Team that does better on that game gets a point. Then we move on to the next game.

This year the focus was to include some strategy or at least reference to strategy and/or euro games.

Be sure to check out game #4, which was the most unique, but will probably never be repeated.

Congrats team B, who won promotion to "The A Team." Team 2 will have to try again next year before they can say "we're number 1".


We started team selection with each person selecting one item from each pair, such as Coke or Pepsi, Munsters or Addams Family, Kirk or Picard, etc. Players who matched their choices best ended up on a team together.

Cluzzle Charades

As in normal Charades, one team decides on a word for the other team to guess. But rather than acting out the clue, the guessers pick a sculptor who can only give clues using clay. Both teams molded and guessed at the same time, so the first team to guess got 2 points, and the 2nd got 1 point if they guessed withing the Cluzzle timer after the first team finished. We played a second round for "2 out of 3", this time using a verb (harder). Team B won on points, so we had no need of a 3rd round.

Toon ID:

I have a huge latch hook rug that covers 1 1/2 walls of a guest room. Everyone crowded in the room to study the cartoons on the rug for a few minutes, then left the room and wrote down as many toon names as they could remember. (I'll add a photo of the rug if someone can help me figure out how to add a non-game photo to the geeklist.)

It's sort of like Take It Easy, but with dice. Each person got to roll and arrange the dice once. Craig scored especially well on this one. I pasted up large dice so everyone could see better. (Thanks Lorna for finding the right spelling for me.)

Everyone hated this one, but they'll probably remember it forever!

With help from Barbara and Jesse, I created horrible food concoctions in my mad scientist bar. The first team to finish empty their little dixie cup and show me an empty mouth got 2 points, the other team could get a point for at least trying to eat the nasty food.

1. Honey on cold spagetti-os and drowned in soy sauce
2. Shot of whiskey with chunky peanut butter in it
3. Raw egg in mouthwash
4. Dill pickle with toothpaste on it
5. Maple syrup over cold saurkraut
6. Dry dog food soaked in milk
7. Jalapenos and rolaids in lemon juice
8. Canned cat food
9. Hot pizza sprinkles and peppercorns in vegetable oil
10. Hot curry paste and hot sauce on raw pasta
11. Cocoa Puffs cereal with ketchup and mustard

The only one that no one could get down at all was the dry dog food, even though it was plenty softened by the milk, apparently the taste was especially vile.

THANKS TO ALL THE RALLY PLAYERS FOR BEING GOOD SPORTS ABOUT THIS ONE! I promise not to repeat it in future years, but you can always tell people "I once ate ...."

Simple race to fill up balloons, move them to the far end of the driveway and into a laundry basket only touching with the back of your left hand. First team to fill their basket won.

Just one round of this classic, but with a gamer's twist on the topic: Top 18 games on BGG!

My own creation, but again with a gamer's twist: We played in front of my game collection, and players had to touch the box that fit whatever criteria was specified, such as:
A game that has paper money
A game whose title starts with the letter C
A game with a dragon in it
A game with a score track on the outside of the board
A game with 5 or more dice
etc.

One round following the rules for challenge Yahtzee, which has everyone use the same starting roll turn after turn. Used big dice so everyone could see better.

Played a standard game of this, but each pawn got 3 free spaces to speed it up a little.
What do these 3 have in common:
A Male Lion
A Horse
New England

They all have a mane (Maine)!

A short and simple treasure hunt around the house. Each clue had a puzzle or series of puzzles to solve with the result giving the location of the next clue.
The clues locations were:
Under the front door mat
In the mailbox
On the piano
In the freezer
and in Kevin's (my husband's) possession

I hope everyone enjoyed this and the rest of the rally. Until next year...
