Formal night - non formal dinner

I'd like to propose dinner at Topsiders (or whatever its called on the Fantasy) on formal night for those of us who are going super casual for this cruise.

We've done this on the last couple of cruises. Its a nice way to dine with someone other than your regular rotation too.

Anyone interested in this?

I love this idea! I am not a formal person and choose this option on every cruise.

If anyone would like to try to arrange a meeting room for a specific meet on the cruise please email me at John@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com

I received a tentative room schedule from DCL and I would love to try to work some of these meets into our official schedule.

Thanks
John

I am sure there are others out there who know more than me about Bunco who could add some info.

It's a great day to be alive!!!
I haven't been to Bunco in many (many) years! Greg even gave me a Bunco game once, so I can bring it if that's what we decide. I'm sure it has dice and score sheets - I'll have to try to dig it out and see what's in there - sounds like fun!

I also have Bunco supplies (when my Bunco group at work fell apart, I was left holding the bag!) It has some dice, score sheets and a bell. How much stuff we need depends on how many people are going to play.

I guess I get to teach... Although I've found that every Bunco group seems to have it's own set of rules!

OK, I found my "Deluxe" Bunco stuff.

It contains 1 large fuzzy pink die

a bell

some dice

scoresheets

Between "SayHello"s supplies and mine, perhaps we'll have enough.
How many people are interested?

And "SayHello" will be the Bunco instructor.

Count me in for Bunco. Learning a new game is a good way to get to know people.

As soon as we have a time scheduled, I'll put it on my events thread.

I have no idea what the large fuzzy pink die is for... I'll have to see how many sets of dice I have. You need one set for every four people.

Cool! And the whole purpose of Bunco is sitting around a table, talking and eating while you roll the dice! And you switch tables, so you get to meet a lot of different people.

Never heard of it before but it sounds like fun. Hopefully I can convince my DH or my mother to participate as well.
