Today ended with a surprise games evening, courtesy of a friend from housegroup with too much pizza and unexpected cancellations! So four of us in total met up and went through a couple of games. First up was Apples to Apples, which was as hilariously random as all good games of it are. We did about six rounds of it and all ended with fairly similar scores.
Afterwards we gave a new-to-me game a go: Last Word, wherein everyone tries to be the last person to say an answer before a random timer runs out. The gameplay is split into two parts: first everyone gets a private subject and a shared letter, and you all try to be the first person to say an answer to your own prompt that starts with the letter shown. Then in the second part the prompt is revealed, a random timer is started, and everyone tries to answer the prompt... but the last person to say an answer before the timer goes wins the point. I somehow picked up an early lead of a few points and held onto it until victory at the end. I think I'll have to introduce the pasta night group to this one!
