What Is Game Night?


It seems like game night is becoming a more regular thing and I love it! For the first time in years I seem to have a small group of friends who all want to play the same games online on the Xbox.

Tonight we had planned to play some of the Halo Reach campaign in co-op but Mitchell didn’t have it fully installed. Rae, Ed and I played some of the Halo 3 campaign for a bit until Rae had to call it a night and Ed and I jumped into some multiplayer games with Mitchell joining us.

We were only able to play some of the original Halo: Combat Evolved with Mitchell as the rest were still downloading for him and boy, that games nearly twenty years show. It still plays great, and the graphics can be given an obvious pass due to their age but it was the control scheme and balancing I struggled with the most in the game. It was fun though.


I'd love to get this group together to play board games on a semi regular basis, but video games is definitely easier to organise so will have to do for now.

I don’t have anything going on tomorrow evening and was already beginning to feel a bit fidgety because of it. I know that if I didn’t occupy myself I would end up doing so by heading to the bar and reading some comics. While that’s not an entirely bad thing, I wanted to be a little better about it so I’ve made a list of things to do to keep myself busy. It’s intentionally too long and I won’t be able to do all of it but that’s kind of the idea. An early night sounds good but if I’m not tired I’ve got stuff to do.
