This game has been sitting in my bedroom for a month waiting for the perfect time to play, so I decided Friday night was the perfect occasion since I would be hanging out with Binkley, Beth and Alli and they are the same crew that I had 80s game night with a few months ago. [Tangent: In the last installment, we played my Full House board game and 1984 Juniors edition Trivial Pursuit, which was increasingly difficult because you had to mentally add the suffix "...in 1984" to every question. Ex: Who is the top olympic medalist? etc.] All I needed was people who had the will to take on the ridiculous with me and tackle the best dream date game EVER MADE.
[Tangent: As a youth, I didn't have a lot of ultra girly board games because most of them were hand me downs from my older brothers, so a lot of these games are totally new to me. I may not have had Heart Throb, but I could sink your battleship like no one's business. Not so secretly, I pined to own Mall Madness, but my mom refused to spend $25 on a board game. Womp. Womp.] Now I am really making up for lost time...I mean look at these 1988 style hunks!

You then draw traits for each gent and have to decide if you wanna stick with them or jump ship to another dude. It's pretty awesome. I learned that my boyfriend is not turned off my a rat tail or a guy that picks his nose. These are all good things to know. Then I felt bad for the guys no one was into...like Rocky, who slept with a teddy bear, was captain of the football team and had dreams to graduate high school before the age of 20 [Tangent: Nevermind that he wore suspenders and a belt on a pair of elastic waist pants.].
I sincerely cannot wait to play it again. It may surpass Cards Against Humanity as my favorite party game. Anyway, that's how I spent my weekend. How did you spend yours?
