Calling at a Birthday Party

April 10th, 2011
contra, calling  [html]
Saturday night I called for a birthday party. I was really excited to be calling because I'd known the family for at least a decade and like them a lot. Full tilt was playing, and they're a lot of fun t work with. The group was a little tricky, as parties can often be, because the group was such a mix. I called (I'm not sure I'm remembering the order):
  1. La Bastringue
  2. Haste to the Wedding
  3. A Ceilidh Dance
  4. Broken Sixpence
  5. Midwest Folklore
  6. Kerry Sets
  7. FARTing Around
  8. Over the Hill and Still Chased
There were some rapper performances and a cake cutting interspersed.

Overall, I think it went well and people had a good time. I do need to find a few more fun simple dances, though, as I was definitely feeling a lack a few times.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf

I really like One Night Ultimate Werewolf (ONUW), and recommend trying it out. The Daybreak expansion is also good (but I’d skip the later games in the series). App For those who’ve played a lot and wish the night took 20 seconds rather than a few minutes…
