What Games do you Play?

By yourself, with your friends and family, with your cofounder, and with your team?

I will start. Here in VegasTech we have a regular Werewolf group that meets once a month or so. It's an amazing way to learn more about each other's strengths and also observe group dynamics within a community.

What I play can depend on the situation:

1. Home alone: Solo Xbox games like Mass Effect or the Witcher
2. Home with friends: BattleBlock Theater, Chess
3. Home with friends + booze: Marvel vs Capcom, Cards Against Humanity
4. Stuck on a bus: Android games like Ingress or Swords and Sworcery
5. Work: Kinect games or Beer Pong

Ok, so in review, lots of xbox and booze apparently. Yay for me.

Between development and marketing I don't really have time for games, but if I do then my favorite game of all times (literally) is Commander Keen. Yes, it is a DOS game. So sue me.

Admittedly, there are a lot of drinking games. But I hope that's standard (just say yes)!

I love to play catch phrase with my co-founders (and others). It is one of the best ways to bond and be creative. Charades and variations are also an awesome addition. Really for us it is about creativity and understanding each other on a deeper level. It's all about connecting, and any game that makes you admit something is worth it.

Happy to hear others, as the iPhone version of catch phrase is a bit limited!

I'll bite. I introduced this to my last startup, and actually learned this from the folks at 42 Floors : bughouse chess. Basically, it's 2x2 team chess, where any piece you take, you hand off to your partner who can either drop that piece, or save it for another time and move one of their existing pieces. You play on an aggressive timeline and the first person who wins, wins for their team.

Bughouse is an AWESOME game for startups, it's somewhat strategic, team-based, chaotic, and fun even for beginners.

I've been playing Smash Up a lot with the family. Smash up is a "shufflebuilding" card game.Each player takes a twenty-card decks of two factions, shuffle them into a forty-card deck, then play to win more Bases than your opponents! Each faction brings a different game style - ghosts are more powerful with less cards, zombies bring cards back from the discard pile, Tricksters make your opponents crazy with confusion - and learning how to play two factions together is an interesting twist.

Well,

Some time ago, I was working non-stop so I reached a point close to a burn out, that's when I decided to do something different. It has been years since I played any video game, so I went for Dead Nation (it always release stress to kill zombies :-) ) and later inFamous.

I haven't continue the practice again, but I think I will, working all the time non-stop it's not healthy and -in my opinion- hinders your creativity and efficiency.

Cheers!
