wordle is pretty boring once you discover the cheat code of always starting with these 3 words no matter what:

LEAST
DUNGY
CHOIR


WORLDLE, though!  :love:

true wordle purists try to guess the right word with each guess (INCLUDING GUESS 1).

much like baseball, wordle suffers from the fact that the best way to play the game is the most boring

i'm feeling a sense of validation that my first 3 words are always
SMILE
DOUGH
TRACK

and while that is obviously not the optimal letter combo i feel pretty good about the fact that i arrived at that strategy with those words independently

You guys know how at basketball games when they do that cash crawl thing during a TV timeout where the fan is blindfolded and then they have to crawl towards some object like a box or basketball on the court and the fans have to cheer if they are going in the right direction or boo if they are going the wrong way? And then if they made it to the object within like 20 seconds or whatever they win the cash?

DQ liked that game better when the contestant would just start randomly crawling directions. Once the contestants figured out they could point and just spin themselves around from a stationary position before they started crawling it just kinda ruined it. #nopointing #2palmsdownatalltimes

Ticket to Ride is still my favorite board game. Get the 1910 Expansion if you haven’t already.

Sup nerds. Moving into a new place thinking of making the basement into a board game/video gaming hideaway. I have closeish to 15 games now. Want a dedicated space to playing them and maybe a table to do it with. Have seen the Jasper table. May build a table myself. I haven't really decided, but we shall see. This is a half baked idea at best. Didn't know if anyone had any ideas but would love to hear them.

When I want to dominate my parents, I set up a folding table in the living room right in front of the tv.

We play this at family gatherings and it’s a lot of fun! When my mom was down in TX last year we would do pass and play on my iPad and it was fun.

Mrs SSOC got the Europe version a few weeks ago. It has tunnels, ferries and train stations that take a bit of getting used to.

We played the game of LIFE last night as a family. I sucked the whole game but then won on the 'put all your money on one number and spin' option at the end. One of the most exhilarating moments of my life wow!

You guys, Qwirkle is the best game for family occasions. Here's why:

1. All ages can play it with ease.
2. There's no insane advantage playing it your first time vs. your 100th.
3. 4-6 players is the perfect number of players for this particular game, but in my mind that's the perfect number of players for a family game.

Look it up if you have interest, but it's basically making rows of blocks of either 1. the same color or 2. the same shape.

Agree. This is a good game.
