Throwback Thursday: Game Night

Rachel Mii Double JumpHappy Thursday!

We’re nearing the end of another week. Kris and I have been trying to play video games every Friday night since it’s hard to find the time to play. 

However, we recently got in touch with old friends and decided to get together at least once a month with them.

Throwback Thursday: Game Night

These friends that I’m talking about have been family friends since we young kids. Our mothers used to work together and are good friends still. We’ve lost touch over the years as we all went to college, got full-time jobs, and basically just moved on with our lives.

However, in high school, Kris used to have her group of friends over once in a while. We’d sit in the basement and play Super Smash Brothers or Mario Kart. It was a lot of fun.

Now, these friends aren’t really “hardcore” gamers, but they do enjoy the casual games once in a while.

We got together in September and played Mario Party 2. It was a blast (especially since one of our friends had no idea what he was doing). It was also great just to catch up with each other. We decided that we need to see each other more often (seriously, it’s been quite a few years since we’ve seen each other… aside from their grandmother’s wake eight months ago).

We thought it would be a great idea to get together at least once a month. Catch up, play a game or two, and just hang out and enjoy the company of old friends again.

Kris and I are getting together with them again tomorrow night. Who knows what game we’ll play this time, but it’ll be a lot of fun either way.

Do you have a special group of friends you like to play video games with whether they game a lot or not?

  1. I’ve been blessed to have a great group of friends to introduce games to. I’ve been doing that with a bunch of Wii U games like Mario Party, Smash Bros., Mario Maker, and Nintendo Land, Lately though, I’ve also been trying to introduce them to games from Jackbox Party Packs like Drawful 2. They work great for parties because they’re not really video games as much as they are digital party games. Board games are also great for game nights, although not video games.
