Hey. I can't be the only one that has people over to play games by candle light on Earth Hour. Just wondering what everyone is playing tonight? I haven't decided yet but I'm thinking Survive: Escape from Atlantis! seems appropriate as of late.

Who or what is an Earth Hour, and should it be allowed out in public?

Well it can't have been that well publicised, as I know of no such commitment from any council or public body in my area. Nor can I recall seeing any mention of this until now. Perhaps I shall play hunt the publicity.

Marathon Black OpsBlack Ops session on my 60" plasma TV, with all the lights in the house turned on (it can be a scary experience otherwise). I played so long I passed out and left everything turned on all night.

We'll have nongamers and kids visiting so will probably play Sorry! Sliders and Break the Safe (batteries included). Maybe Master Labyrinth if I'm lucky. Or a few rounds of Rukshuk (more in-theme?).

If I had them handy I'd really like to play:

Nacht der Magier
Shadows in the Forest
Phantoms vs Phantoms
Vampire Hunter

Earth Hour is a reasonable way to start people thinking about energy use, but I like it as much for the brief reduction in light pollution. It's true that most people have no idea what they're commissioning when they turn on an electric light, but most have also never seen the night sky without it. Multiple paths to awareness...

Oh, come on! No one has said Power Grid yet? You people are slipping.

We're taking a candlelight tour through the Gipf series. Possibly kicking things off by reading Edward Abbey or Wendell Berry.

I assume EARTH HOUR is EARTH DAY for people with attention deficit disorder.

I personally will be celebrating EARTH SECOND, because I have an even shorter attention span. I plan on turning out the lights, turning off the heat, and holding my breath for that second, so that, albeit briefly, I can completely eliminate my carbon footprint.

Bit early for an April Fool if it is.

If you light 3 candles to play a game you create more pollution than if you use one 13 watt CFL bulb. The bulb also gives you 24x the light of 3 candles. Just saying.

What if they are low energy candels (and would you then need four of them?)?

I don't think its a spoof, just a minority 'glogal celibration'. In the same was that I am world famous (because people on BGG have seen my name).

We just finished a game of a power grid , and i won with the power of the uranium devil
Serious - I think that we must take care of electricity consumption every day and not only for one hour in year.
