Tags: Off Topic
Edit - as the first event is actually the tour of TR HQ at 10 am, I am amending the time! Besides, that gets it below 24 faster! ;\


======= original post =================
My understanding is, the first official event starts at 2 pm, Friday afternoon, so that is what I am going by, not the time people will start showing up or some kind of Boxie Math.

Make sure you check into the new playlist for your road trip.

Friday Night Music - 19 June 2009 - TR Gathering Road Trip

I am starting to make my packing checklist today, so I can make sure I don't forget anything. My intention is to have the car loaded and ready to go Wednesday night, so after work on Thursday I can see my boys for a bit, take a quick nap, and then get on the road to meet up with James and Christie.

Clothes
bathroom kit (gotta brush your hair and comb your teeth, right? (CHECK!)
laptop (CHECK!)
cards (just in case)
mp3 player/headphones (CHECK!)
redbull (CHECK!)
jager (CHECK!)
disposable shot glasses (CHECK!)

I have a board - cribbage and backgammon and...

by Sonja Thompson Staff In reply to board?

lots of other games that don't require a computer (including Twister - but you're not putting oil on it, jd... oh, and I usually cheat).

As for the dart boards, I'm not sure if they are plastic or steel tipped. Don't you love the element of surprise?!

Twister

by BFilmFan In reply to I have a board - cribbage ...

Just sounds like a traction requiring incident waiting to happen for me....

I'll watch tho. :)

I'm wichoo, BFF!

by gadgetgirl In reply to I have a board - cribbage ...

considering I AM considered the accident waiting to happen, I've never actually been allowed to play it!

I'll just sit on the sidelines and watch the fun, whilst listening for the sounds of breaking bones..... :)

oh, don't worry - I'll have the first aid kit at the ready, and I'll be the certified first aider available..... :)

Showing my ignorance

by CharlieSpencer In reply to I have a board - cribbage ...

How in the name of Milton Bradley do you cheat at Twister? Rig the spinner? Paint extra dots in colors you need? Use body parts other than hands and feet?

"Right ****, green!"

I'll toss mine in the truck

by Tig2 In reply to Play Backgammon, too.

At the very least, the dice will come in handy.

Anyone fancy a game of left, right, and center?

Anyone play "nuts"?

by jdclyde In reply to Play Backgammon, too.

it is like solitaire, but with groups instead of a single person. Everyone has a unique deck of cards so you can tell who's is who's.

You can play off anyone else's cards in the center, and get a point for each.

You LOSE TWO points for every card left in your flop hand (start with 11 cards).

This is our familys game and gets pretty intense as you have so much to watch and have to be fast.

When you lay your last flop card you yell "NUTS" and play stops, and everyone else yells something less pleasant.....

First to get to 500 wins. Negative scores are not uncommon..... ;\

We play until about 3/4am whenever there is a gathering.
