Board games at my place, this Saturday


I apparently just can't seem to get enough of you people. Just last Saturday I threw a party and invited you guys, and here I am doing it again. Only this time, it's not going to be a party party, just a get-together-and-play-board-games party.

I imagine it to be a much quieter time, but certainly just as competitive (if not more) than playing the Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures with three other (malicious) people.

Why am I doing this? Well, for one, the board games were sadly neglected at last week's party, and for two, I just bought two new games and I'm itching to try them out, and for three, none of the people here at my school would be willing to come play with me. And for four, they're all a bunch of jerks. Actually, I guess that goes with number three.

So if you make it to only one Destructoid Los Angeles hangout this season, well then by all means wait another week and come party with CTZ. But if you can make it to two, then I'd love to have you over to play some board games. My collection is shown above, and you can read more about the games through the links below, if you'd like.

Settlers of Catan
Cities and Knights of Catan
Puerto Rico
Ticket to Ride
Shadows Over Camelot

I will also probably bake something. Pineapple upside down cake, maybe?
