Hello. I am conducting a survey about board gaming because there is an upcoming event and I am hoping to find interesting things to ask / ice-breakers for new people. Can you help me by answering the following questions? Leaving an answer blank is fine if you do not have a strong option. Thank you.
What is the first game you received as a gift?
What game do you play during the holidays?
What game you have enjoyed playing outdoors?
What is your favorite game that involves dice?
What day of the week do you most often play games?
What is your favorite gaming snack food?
Who is your favorite game designer?
What is your favorite board/card game to play digitally?
7 Wonders. High player count and reasonably simple to explain the mechanics, if not necessarily the scoring.
Card games with a traditional 52 card deck in a pub beer garden, such as Rummy, Hearts, Spades and President. My friends would often also play Bridge, but I’ve never really enjoyed the game when I’ve played it.
Turns out I don’t play games with dice much any more. I’d probably go with Summoner Wars.
I don’t usually eat while playing games.
Street Masters has recently displaced Root for me, but this changes fairly regularly.
I know I got a number of things as a kid, but Electronic Battleship was probably one of the first I remember getting. For more modern games, my girlfriend (now wife) bought me Munchkin Fu when we were at a random toy shop that had some games. Took forever before we ever played it though.
Nothing in particular.
Probably Taverns of Tiefenthal, followed by Escape the Curse of the Temple.
Saturday and Sunday.
Don’t often snack while gaming, as we usually eat before diving into a game when we have company. Chips, I guess (crisps, for those weird East-pondians).
For a long time I would have said Antoine Bauza, but I have been really enjoying games by Reiner Knizia lately.
Unmatched, no question. Despite the app being a bit buggy.
