Postmortem: 061104

We had one of our best nights to date. Lots of new faces.
Angel from the office came with two of his friends Oliver and Tim. Oliver brought his XBOX classic and Angel brought his 360 and a HD projector. Ed brought his classic and I provided 3 more classics. That matched our Aug 18 night where we had 6 XBOXs. Michael, Cassidy’s teacher, Sanjeev, and Kevin and his son Kyle rounded out the group.

We setup Angel’s XBOX and projector in the front room against a wall. It was a big hit. Sanjeev even stopped playing towards the end and simply pulled up the chair to watch the “big-screen” as if he were watching a movie.

Angel was clearly the strongest player followed by Oliver and Tim. David held his own and impressed the veteran “gamers”.

There were was lots of high-tech gamer talk and as usual, Jane had a nice spread of snacks and drinks to go along with the pizza.

The great thing about last night is that most players had a dedicated screen throughout the night.  Headsets weren’t working well for some reason.  I’d like to fix that for next time.

  1. Really had fun Friday night. I was definitely the “kill booster” for everyone else, but in my defense, I bought the game 2 hours before I came so I could at least have a general idea about the controls. I will definitely be practicing and return for redemption(or further punishment). Thanks to the Kleymeyers for a great time. Special thanks to David, who whips through the menus so fast I get dizzy, and to Cassidy, who was there to encourage me when I made a kill. She didn’t have the opportunity often! (-:

  2. Mike, I thought you did terrific for your first time. I played at the end of the night and couldn’t believe how horrible I was, and I HAVE played before. I couldn’t remember the buttons for switching weapons, etc. You have to be quick, any slight hesitation and your worm fodder!

    Thanks for attending and contributing to one of our best nights.
