Week 24 – Cash and Guns

It’s another week of new boardgames – I’m really enjoying this way of spending weekend nights with friends πŸ™‚

This time it was all about being part of the mafia! And as the name of the game suggests, there was cash, and guns involved πŸ™‚

Super simple concept – get a bunch of friends together around a table, each person is assigned a player and places that character in front of them. The godfather then counts down from 3 and everyone then points their gun at someone they wish to ‘kill’.Β Those who haven’t been shot are then given the chance to pick loot out of the kitty which is placed in the middle of the table… and the person at the end with the most money (and still alive) is the winner!

Easy peasy and so much fun! πŸ™‚


Week 23 – F.R.I.E.N.D.S and friends

I’m a little late in posting my something new this week, sorry… it’s been a pretty busy week with lots on the go!

My something new that I’m sharing with you took place on Friday night.
My friends V&A invited a bunch of true die-hard Friends fans over to their place to play a Friends boardgame.

That’s right – a board game dedicated to the amazingness that is Friends πŸ™‚

And this game truly is for die-hard fans… some of the questions are impossible to answer without the help of Google (of course, you don’t get any points for doing that πŸ˜‰ ), and some of them are just plain hilarious and you get to enjoy watching some snippets from some of the best scenes in the series.

How the game works:

There’s a board…

… with the usual dice, movers, playing cards etc.

And then there’s the DVD… which means you obviously need a laptop / DVD player (say, whaaaat???), and a TV to play the game. Then once you’re all set up, you simply follow the instructions – roll the dice, answer a question (which is often played on the DVD), and move the appropriate amount of blocks if getting it right… and of course, first one to the middle WINS!

In our case, we played in teams of two players… and Vasi & I WON!!!


Week 22 – Bulgari Resort Dubai

One day while searching online for an iftar that I could book for my company to attend, I came across an advert for an iftar being held at the newly opened Bulgari Resort.

The hotel is incredibly swanky, yet the iftar was not ridiculously overpriced, so I figured this would be a great opportunity to get out to the hotel just for the sake of seeing it and pretending to be swanky and posh for a night… so I made a reservation for J & I to enjoy an iftar at the Bulgari Majlis.

I don’t really have much to say about this (shocker, I know!) so I’ll rather just let you see from the few photos I took on the night πŸ™‚

And because my photos don’t really do the hotel much justice, here are a couple taken from Google:
