On August, 16th CGE office hosted another Game Night, this time celebrating new season’s opening. Under the guidance of Mike Cotterell, the participants first got a taste of Munchkin Cthulhu and then proceed to the well-known Dixit.
All invited got quickly involved in the games and picked up on the playful spirit. The activity helped young people to explore themselves and get to know their friends better through the educative non-formal learning experience, which have very different objectives.
Dixit is an imaginative and descriptive game which pushes you to widen your vocabulary, to be creatively critical and interpretative. You must select your own card which most closely matches the selected descriptor, in order to fool your opponents, while you also attempt to select the correct card, and not one which belongs to an opponent.
Munchkin is a monster-fighting and dungeon-looting card game based on the idea of the original dungeon-crawling tabletop role-playing games or war games, such as Dungeons and Dragons, Chainmail, or Call of Cthulu. As a character seeking adventure, you hear about the opportunity to acquire gold and magical items, so you investigate the dungeon or haunted house in search of treasure and fame, but around each corner danger lurks for the unprepared. The card game Munchkin relies on this central idea of fighting monsters and acquiring treasure. The first to overcome 10 monsters is the winner. But the other players can make this challenge more difficult for you, in order that they might prevail first. In this game, strategy and negotiation are key skills in advancing your own ability to succeed.
