Team building, water use style

At the training center where we're having our database test this week, some other group is having a team-building training session. Well, we decided we just finished the water-use version of team building: an evening of games in the lobby of the Residence Inn.

The game of the evening was "You Must Be An Idiot", a trivia game with bluffing. At each question round, the players have a secret card that tells them if they are an idiot (who must get the question wrong) or not. Correct answers score points, correct guessing of who had an idiot card (and whose wrong answer was therefore a bluff) score points, and unchallenged idiots score points. Incorrect challengers lose points. Lots of fun, enhanced by knowing each other pretty well. If K. misses the baseball question, she must have an idiot card. Same thing for T. and movie questions. Unless they are bluffing... Lots of fun. However, there were no takers for a follow-on game of "Ticket to Ride" when YMBAI ended at 9:45.

Windy tonight in Denver--the emergency door in the lobby area whistled and rattled all through the game, and up here in my room I can hear the window rattling through the closed curtains. Yep, here we go--30 mph winds out there, bringing the wind chill to the low 20s. Hopefully it'll be calmer tomorrow.

I love Ticket to Ride.
Have you tried Ticket to Ride Europe yet?

I haven't, but I'll hazard a guess that K. and T. have. K. and her husband just went past the 1,200 mark with their game collection, all cataloged in a database with ratings, country of origin, and other useful info. Where my house has shelves overflowing with books, theirs has games. T. attends K.'s twice-a-year gaming cons.
