Game Night: Redux

chris ledouxNo, Redux isn’t the name of a game, a Subaru, or a country singer, I just figured since this is my second post about a game night, I’d label it as a part 2…like Scream 2, or Home Alone 2, or Hot Shots! Part Deux.*

My friend B hosted his monthly game night and it was a real scream! I have a feeling lots of inside jokes are going to spring up out of this one. Even when I’m home alone I’ll chuckle about things that happened or things that were said there. Aside from the games, B has four rabbits and makes a killer quesadilla (he’s a real hot shot!), so they (the rabbits) were entertaining and tasty (not the rabbits!!!). We started off with a game called Pit, then switched over to¬†Werewolf, which is a lot like Mafia, if that rings any bells for you. Our next game was Heads-Up, the Ellen game where you have to guess what’s on your phone as everyone else describes it to you.


We finished the gaming with one called Nouns. Really fun as each person comes up with 16 nouns and puts them all in a hat. Then you form teams and draw the slips of paper out one by one in a matter of three rounds, trying to get your teammates to guess the correct noun…

round 1: describe the noun as best you can

round 2: describe the noun with only 1 word

round 3: act out the noun without any words

This one is great because it’s free, you can be creative/silly/saucy with the nouns you come up with, and it can get challenging.

After the games, B sat down at his keyboard and began playing his medley of Disney tunes. It was so good! For a few seconds I got lost in the magic ūüôā I guess we were all still feeling a bit competitive, though, so we tried to guess the song titles and what movie each one was from. ¬†B then tried out another medley he’s working on, a mashup of Bruno Mars songs.¬†I guessed, maybe 3 out of the 9 or 10 songs he played. Clearly, I need to brush up on my Bruno Mars catalog.

I’ve always liked game nights, and last night is a good reason why.

10 Signs He’s Into You

He uses his phone to call you, not just text. Remember the good ol’ days when¬†you sat by the phone and waited, then the excitement when the phone rang?¬†Not only is calling a sign of a confident man who likes you,¬†it’s also classy.

He answers the phone when you call. He’s not playing games with you. If he can, he answers because the girl he really likes is calling him. That’s a big deal.

He responds to your message¬†the same day. If he likes you, he’ll probably call before it’s been “days later” unless he’s playing games.

He organizes events just so you‚Äôll attend. Facebook events page, anyone? If you score an invite to a group outing to watch wrestling at the Stadium Inn because you love¬†Arick “The Dragon” Andrews, it could mean the¬†event was all planned for¬†you.

He likes having inside jokes with you. This is a little thing that means a whole lot. It connects the two of you in a place where no one else is connected. So if inside jokes are a part of your relationship, chances are he wants to know you more.

He asks to spend time with you. Spending¬†his free time with you¬†is the biggest compliment. What he’s saying is that of all the things he could be doing, he wants to be with you. Obviously, that’s huge.

He asks in person or on the phone to see you.¬†Doing this¬†takes guts, and shows he likes you, or at the very least, thinks you’re interesting. If he texts you and asks you to dinner or something, then he may not care as much as you’re hoping he does.

He says ‘yes’ when you ask to spend time with him. He could’ve said ‘no.’ Even if he has other plans, he’ll cancel them at the chance to spend time with you. “When your wondering what to say, or how you look… just remember… she is already out with you. That means, she said yes, when she could’ve said no.” -from the movie Hitch* (can be applied to males or females)

He never talks to you about other girls. I talk to some of my female friends about girls I like. I never talk to girls I like about girls I like.

He tells you personal things about his family. Letting anyone in on family stories is usually a big deal. This means he trusts you with what may possibly be most important to him, his family. Disregard this if the family he speaks of is his wife.
