Taking inspiration from birdwatchers this blog will be a record of every unique game I play during 2014. I will provide an overview of each game with my experiences or thoughts about the game. Additionally I will be tagging with labels shown on the left hand side for easy searching of game types.
On a grander scale I hope to inspire others to attempt their big year and experience the joy of gaming!

107) Two Rooms and a Boom
This is a 6 minute real time game that is easy to learn and creates fun and interesting social interactions. As seen below there are two color cards. On the red team will be one person with a bomb and the blue team will have one person who is the president. All the cards are shuffled and dealt randomly - one for each player. You then split into two groups (in two different rooms) and you have three minutes to interact with and try and figure out who different people are. Additionally each table elects a leader. At the end of three minutes the leader at each table picks one person who has to join the other group. You then repeat the process for two minutes, then finally for one minute. The game ends and if the president and bomb are in the same room the red team wins whereas if the president isn't in the room with the bomb the blue team wins.
This is all there is to it
I was on team red
This game is interesting to say the least. With so little instruction it can be a bit difficult to figure out what to do. We had a bit of a slow start, by the end had a good idea of what was going on. I'm not sure how much strategy is involved, but its quick enough where that doesn't matter as much. Also, it would be really easy to print up your own version of this game to play.
