It’s easy to pick, folks. Just make up a table, and roll percentile to see what game to play next…

Oh wait. That’s a game too.

    At our game night we have a good process:
    -Everyone picks one game they want to play.
    -Place games on table.
    -Roll dice or otherwise determine an individual.
    -That person removes a game they don’t want.
    -Roll again among those who have not picked a game.
    -Repeat until one game is left.
    It is fair, everyone has input, and games folks don’t like get eliminated.

    I don’t remember Ben, has he shown up before? (Also, is he another skirt-wearing giant like Darren?)

    They bought too many games, now they’re gonna have to play them all. All Aboard The Steam Train!

    I swear that was playing through my head at the last panel.

    Steam Train?
    That would be Steam: Rails to Riches by Mayfair Games right?
    Or are we talking one of several variants like Euro-ails of Freight-train or Rail Baron or ….. I’ll stop now.

  7. Having the choice of several games is wonderful. It lets you spend your time bickering over which game to play instead of playing one of them.

    I do not see the logic in it myself, but I have seen many people enjoying a game of Bicker.

  8. Something was sticking about this strip, and I think I have figured it out. There is an unrealistic part: Ned having to offer a discount.

    Robin Bobcat’s group’s procedure is pretty good! My own favorite entry in the “games to help you decide what game to play” category is I Don’t Know, What Do You Want To Play?

    There’s a game my friends & I have used for just this situation. It’s called Game Election. Everyone gets cards to vote with (YEA, DOUBLE YEAH, NAY, & VETO), they place them face down on the different board games or whatever is being voted on. After everyone is done, the votes are tallied (veto cancels one yay), & the game with the most yays gets played.

    In our group, the loser of the current game gets to pick the next game. The only time we might balk at a choice is if it’s a really long game and we’re running short on time.
