Games Night

On Saturday, we went over to Kevin's house to play games.

I had worried that there might be animosity between Alaina and me about our argument a week ago, but I was determined not to start anything. Alaina was so resolved as well, apparently, because we didn't have any unpleasantness at all. I was glad.

Our first game was Apples to Apples. We adapted the rules so that Austin always got to play a card, but the last adult to play had to take their card back. It was a good variation. I had four green cards when Alaina won with five, but that doesn't mean much. My best play was a chance to play "Bill Gates" on "Unscrupulous" when a Linux fan was judging.

After that, we played Star Trek Uno. Not much to stay about this one--I felt sorry for Kevin for not being able to distinguish the colors, and I'm glad that we didn't follow the rule about saying "Star Trek, the final Uno frontier" instead of Uno. Alaina won.

The color problem led us to play a game of regular Uno, which I happened to win.

After that, Steve and Teri had to leave. At Austin's request, we played Ricochet Robot. Lori and Alaina went off to talk in the kitchen or something while Austin, Kevin, and I played.

Despite the Skyy Blue I'd had, which I figured would slow me down a bit, I had an amazing game of Ricochet Robot. I managed to win 12 out of the 17 contests. (For the most challenging one, my solution took 32 moves, though I've since been able to see how I could have done it in "only" 24.)

A pleasant evening.
