The Reduced Pasta Night Company

We were nattering at pasta night and jonners99_uk mentioned that he'd been trying to teach his son to say "In the Land of Mordor". Of course, there is only one possible reaction to that...

Things then escalated and many classic Youtube videos were deployed...

Anyway, on to the games! We were a bit thin on numbers for tonight, so Beth dug out some games that we don't often play due to having too many people and first up was Dixit. It's a nice easy game to play, with absolutely beautiful artwork on the cards, and we managed to come up with all sorts of weird and wonderful combinations of clues and cards. I have to admit, I almost want to buy this just for the art. elemnar managed to storm ahead early on and won with a hefty lead.

Dixit went fairly quickly so we had time for a another game - Takenoko, which hasn't come up at pasta night for probably over a year. This game is much more complicated, revolving around placing tiles and manoeuvring a gardener to grow bamboo and a panda to eat it, and the lateness of the evening showed as some of us started making silly mistakes. I didn't feel that I was doing all that well at it, but did manage to score the bonus points for being the one to end the game and when we added up everything I was joint first with elemnar! Go us!
