He's not on the DIS and doesn't have the time to keep up with a thread (as opposed to individual, targeted topic posts on FB). I will post his idea here and ask for PMs from interested people because school started yesterday and I might not be able to keep up with the thread, either. Feel free to add the description and PM request to the First Post.

GAME NIGHT(S)

Calling all geeks and gamers! We've got fourteen nights on this voyage. Who'd like to get some game on?

I'm thinking about a flash-mob style loosely organized gathering in Diversions to play some solid games. I'm a fan of "euro games" like Carcassone, Puerto Rico, Dominion, and so on. I'm not adverse to Cards Against Humanity, either.

If we want to get really geeky, we can throw together a one-shot roleplaying game.

Who's interested? PM Meghatron if you are! (Also no need to PM if you already responded on FB.)

Not that I play but on a couple of cruises including our 2008 WBPC they played Bunco. I think they had quite a crowd.

This is such a great idea.....specially now when I saw the picture I have better idea! If I volunteer, would some of you be interested?

Since I have never done this before.....how big was the magnet and did people signed up ahead of time or it was just random?

"Shots around the Ship" definitely sounds like something DH and I would enjoy!!

(along with roleplaying, and meeting others while in our PJ's or sporting pink tiaras. Oh dear, there has to be something severely wrong with us! )

It's always fun to do stuff like this on the cruise and meet fellow DISers and new people. I know I signed up for way too much activities on Hawaiian cruise and my DH asked me when I'll have time for vacation LOL

PJ Breakfast at Triton's

As per braysmommy's suggestion, PJ breakfast is now on for Saturday, May 11, which will be the third of many happy sea days

Meeting time and place is at 8:30 a.m. in the Lobby Atrium so we can take over Triton's in our PJ's! (or somewhat similar attire, because as a clueless foreigner I'm not even entirely sure what pj's are )

They were handsome in their tuxes and handsome in their shirts, so,they would be doubly handsome if they wore both at the same time.

DH and Granmaz's DH showed up for dinner on the fiesta night each wearing the same shirt. We had a good laugh.

Lexa, the whole Roaming Gnome sheet was 8 & 1/2 X 11. I believe it was a sheet of magnet paper.

The creator kept a list of players and their room numbers which she passed out at the first day DIS meet. The list was attached & traveled with it (I think maybe with a pen or marker to sign with). When the gnome appeared on your door, you crossed off your name and put it on the door of anyone who hadn't had it yet. There were instructions on the list that the Creator was the last one to get it when all the other names were crossed off or (I think) by 3:00 pm on the last day of the cruise.The creator got to keep it and posted a picture of it on the meet thread when she got home for anyone to download.

We would be interested in playing; it only took a minute but was fun. And we enjoy having the picture.

Thank you for explanation. I did a little search myself here on DISboard and it looks like fun. I just think maybe colored pens will be better then sharpies which can scratch off easy from the magnet. I will put a design together, I just won't use pin images, but I think it will still look cool.

Debbie, you need to add Alicea Novak as your friend and she will invite you. Also she asks to send her a message here on DIS (WestCoastNovaks) or on Fb so she know you are member of this thread
