Regardless, I have signed up for Alex J. Cavanaugh's It's All Fun & Games blogfest in hopes that someone will come up with a game that'll strike my fancy. Good luck with that.
For my part, I've selected three games I can be talked into with a minimal amount of arm twisting, so maybe you'll like them too:
Drink! You know the game---where every time somebody says a certain word or does a certain thing, you take a drink. For example, let's spice up this blogfest and everybody take a drink whenever Alex says "Ninja"! We ought to be schnockered by noon.
Bananagrams It's a lot like Scrabble but much faster. Everybody works on their word puzzle simultaneously, so there's none of that forgetting you're even playing a game while you wait eons for the other players to finally spell out a flipping word. And to make the game even better---the letter tiles come in a canvas ba-na-na!
Liars Dice As featured in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest when Will Turner faced off against Davy "do-you-fear-death" Jones. The rules are simple, and skillful lying can easily beat luck, so yeah, once that arm's twisted I have a lot of fun with this one.
