It’s Thanksgiving week! The Gathering takes a moment to talk about the important things in life: Alan Moore and little bit of video games! Stop on by to hear all about what they are doing for this holiday and more!

Tyler is back a little drunk on this episode with his co-host Eric, Kuma from GamerKulture and Jeff from IndiComix! 4 parts of GGG coming together in one episode trying to get along. The holidays are magical, indeed!

 

 

QoW: In light of this very important holiday in American history, what is your favorite Christmas movie?


Game of the Week:

Red-Flags-feat

How to play:

SETUP:
Separate the white cards (Perks) from the red cards (Red Flags) and place them in stacks on the table where all players can reach them.
Pick a player to be the Single. The player who’s been on the most dates makes a great first Single.
Everyone else takes 4 Perks and 3 Red Flags.

THE PERKS:
Using what you know about the Single, pick two Perks to create the best date you can for them.
Starting with the player to the left of the Single, each player plays their two Perks and reads the cards out loud to the table.

THE RED FLAGS:
After all Perks are read, and beginning once again with the player to the Single’s left, each player plays a Red Flag onto the player to their left.

DEBATE:
Now the players argue why the Single should pick their character to date and reject the other candidates. The Single must imagine that they will date this person long-term, and will be expected to do all of the things they would do while dating anyone else.

SELECTION:
Based on the arguments, the Single chooses a date. The chosen player keeps their Red Flag from that date. Use these cards to keep track of points. The player to the left of the Single is now the new Single.

DO IT ALL NIGHT LONG:
After each round, all players discard their hands and draw back up to four Perks and three Red Flags and start a new round. When either the Perk or Red Flag decks run out, shuffle the discard pile and use that as your new deck.

HOW TO WIN:
For a short game, play twice around the table. For a longer game, say that the first player to seven points wins. Or just play until none of you want to go on a date ever again.
