There was a lot of fun with various chess variants being played. I should have taken more photos. The photo shows you having to spell out a word before your opponent does (‘capture’ the squares in the correct order).
There was also well, can’t remember the name, but a large pack of cards allowed us to cast spells and curses etc. on our own or opponent’s pieces. And teams of two played hand/mind chess (the mind just chooses a piece type, the hand makes a move with that piece); works best if you can read minds.
Starting next week and for all of February we will be playing the Honourable Bob over 5 rounds (1 game per night).
