Games club

20 Feb

The Bigster has just arrived home from school and announced that she is doing “Boardgames” as her elective on Friday afternoons.

“Biggie can bring in some games,” the kids announced. One of the teachers looked confused.

“How many games do you have?” she asked.

“Oh, about 600,” said Biggie.

Apparently the teacher screamed a little bit.

Anyway, here is the class’s wish list. It’s a group of 7 or so, mostly Grade 6 (11-12 yr old) boys. Can you tell all the games?

  • Cluedo
  • Loop and liois
  • Ink & gold
  • Mafia – card game
  • card deck
  • Escape Pompei
  • Escape from Colditz
  • Carkazan
  • Beep-beep
  • Monopoly
  • Cash the Mash
  • For sale
  • Mystery ramy
  • Jakle & Hyde
  • Jack the ripper
  • Alcapone
  • Spoon (for 7)
  • Murders in the roe moorge
  • Itchy & Saratchy

Sigh. Spelling is apparently not a strength of this group. (The Bigster insists that I point out that she did not write this list).

I’ll send a note to the teacher-in-charge on Monday, to see what if any involvement she’d like from me. I don’t work Fridays so can arrange to go in most if not all weeks, if wanted.

Not sure that those are the 18/19 games I would choose, though.

    Phhtt – more like “about 500” 🙂

    Surely Biggie must have dictated some of those titles, I don’t see how any of her classmates would know about “Murders in the roe moorge”, “Jakle & Hyde” and “Mystery ramy”. What is Spoon? I am also not sure about “Mafia – the card game”

    I find they’re easier to translate if you say them with an Aussie accent 😉
    I’m most intrigued by a 7-person spoon though…..

    There’s a version of Werewolf called Mafia–that might be it.
