elemnar brought a new game to try tonight: Chain Reaction. Having played it I've got mixed views - it could work well, but I'm not sure it fits our group. Or perhaps we need less tired people and to pay more attention to the game - while members of each team are supposed to answer the question/challenge in order without help, some got carried away and shouted out answers without waiting for their turn, while others on both sides tried to give clues (not always helpfully). And half-way through we lost track of which colour was which team on the scoreboard, and we weren't counting the scores consistently between the two teams.
I think it's a game that we might end up playing every so often only to remember why we don't play it, a bit like with Munchkin. It's all academic anyway as elemnar is borrowing it and has to give it back soon.
Afterwards we filled the remaining time with Jackbox 5, playing first Split The Room and then Mad Verse City. Split The Room backfired spectacularly - I completely failed to split the room at all with my first prompt, and couldn't gain enough points from my second prompt to move up the scoreboard. Mad Verse City went even worse with zero points in the first two rounds. I did get some points in the final round when I gave up entirely on trying to make things rhyme though. Meh, bring back Survive The Internet!
