Thermal t-shirt under scrubs?

one_step_closer 27-04-2023 02:35 PM

I think I'd still feel cold with that because of bare arms.

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 02:36 PM

Hot water bottle?

one_step_closer 27-04-2023 02:40 PM

This seems ridiculous that we're having to suggest warm things. Work should be warm enough!

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 02:43 PM

It should be!
Some bosses are just cheap

Ahimsa 27-04-2023 02:45 PM

I get to go home to my cats in THREE hours! So close but so far!

one_step_closer 27-04-2023 02:45 PM

Is everyone else warm enough today? It's a cold and wet day here. I'm a bit cold.

one_step_closer 27-04-2023 02:46 PM

You can do it Ahimsa! You ARE doing it!

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 03:14 PM

It's quite cold here. I'm outside. Not wet though.

Hope the time flies by!

I won the first board game! We played a game about being capitalist bees selling honey to woodland creatures.

tamobhuuta 27-04-2023 05:24 PM

Not heard of that one! Well done!

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 05:28 PM

That seems like a very niche board game!
Well done!

I played 'dobble' with the OTA.

Pi.R^2 27-04-2023 05:28 PM

I love Dobble!!

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 05:37 PM

It was really stressful XD
I was really good at it though and won by quite a lot!

long road 27-04-2023 05:39 PM

It's called Honey Buzz. I got it for Christmas and finally played it today!

Double is fun and can be pretty frantic.

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 05:41 PM

I can imagine bees being capitalist tbh

Thankfully it was only us playing
I can't imagine how hectic it was when they were doing it as a group!

one_step_closer 27-04-2023 05:47 PM

I don't think I've played Dobble. I'm not really a fan of games (board or electronic). Although I do want to play Hearing Things and Catchphrase but I have no one to play with.

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 05:50 PM

Neither am I. But the OTA is very insistent.

That's a shame.

one_step_closer 27-04-2023 05:53 PM

I suppose at least it gave you something different to do for a little while.

Triominoes can be a good game too. I used to play it with one service user when I was a MH support assistant.

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 06:06 PM

Yeah it did

What's that?

one_step_closer 27-04-2023 06:09 PM

It's just like dominoes but triangles.

Ahimsa 27-04-2023 06:39 PM

I love Dobble

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 06:41 PM

Oooh cool!

It is quite fun!

Elmer 27-04-2023 06:42 PM

Came here from LFV because I saw triangle dominoes and thought there was a new kind of pizza happening :')

Ahimsa 27-04-2023 06:46 PM

Exciting news guys!


one_step_closer 27-04-2023 07:04 PM

Pizza is triangles though! What were you imagining?

I'm glad you're home from work now, Ahimsa. Are you going to have something nice to eat and snuggle with your cats?

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 07:19 PM

I feel like a triangle pizza would have less surface area and therefore is not good.
A local place does square pizzas. That middle piece *chefs kiss*

Yaaay for being home!

I've got some mathematical opinions about this statement...

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 07:58 PM

Please share your opinions.
I think you know from your attempt at tutoring me that i am hopeless at maths (attempt meaning I am hopeless, you were a very good tutor!)

long road 27-04-2023 08:22 PM

I used to love the catchphrase TV show. So fun! Although the yellow men were somewhat disturbing.

Yay for being home Beth!

I lost the second game, which was called a flow of history. We also had fried chicken burgers and chips for dinner. Friend bought them for us to thank my partner for helping him move. I got the best deal I didnt help with moving and still got free food!

Square pizzas are the best pizzas

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 08:25 PM

I'm awesome at catchphrase.

Love fried chicken!
That was nice of your friend, and a win for you!

They are indeed!
And half the price of domino's!

long road 27-04-2023 08:28 PM

Friend is a very nice friend. We have been friends for over a decade now.

I miss my square pizza restaurant they closed :(

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 08:31 PM

Aww lovely!
I don't have many long term friends, but had my bestie for 10 years now!

Oh nooo. That is sad :(

long road 27-04-2023 08:39 PM

He is a friend from the same board game group where I met my partner. And as such is a friend of us both

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 08:41 PM

That's so lovely!
And a lovely way to meet someone!

My brother met his now wife when she rejected him for a job interview XD

long road 27-04-2023 10:24 PM

Did she reject him for the job because the company had a no relationships between employees rule? XD

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 10:27 PM

Apparently it was because he came to the interview wearing a snapback cap. Classic him. Who does that?!

The Worst Witch 27-04-2023 10:34 PM

Hey everyone, hope its ok to jump back into this thread :)

What’s a snapback cap? *goes to google*

Jen, it was lovely to meet you earlier :). You and Kiran I hasn’t met before so I was a bit nervous but was lovely all the same :). I want your bee capitalist game now!

Cacoethes 27-04-2023 10:41 PM

I should probably go to bed before everything kicks off again. Been constant

long road 27-04-2023 10:47 PM

Lol. Caps are not interview attire.

Course you are welcome in the thread. Was lovely to meet you too :) Game is called Honey Buzz and made by Elf Creek Games

long road 27-04-2023 10:48 PM

Try and sleep while you can Beckie. Sorry it's so chaotic there

The Worst Witch 27-04-2023 10:50 PM

Night Beckie. I hope you manage to get some sleep.

I’ve ordered it for Saturday night games night :). Or at least I will have when I get paid

long road 27-04-2023 10:53 PM

Awesome hope you enjoy it. It's a 4 player game and takes around an hour to an hour and half to play.

Pi.R^2 27-04-2023 10:53 PM

I sense the need for a board game thread in Creativity and Reviews!!

The Worst Witch 27-04-2023 10:59 PM

I have a whole shelf full of board games :). What’s your favourite one to play? I like quirky ones, V bought me a game called ‘colour brain’ for Christmas and I love it. Also have quite a few card games, exploding kittens etc etc.

long road 27-04-2023 10:59 PM

Ooh good idea! But ... Aren't you meant to be working Jenna?

Ninja Ali! I have a lot of board games my favourite is probably Teotihucan -City of the Gods which is about being a mesoamerican and building and decorating a temple to the gods and is dice worker placement game. Bot more obviously tactical than something like honey buzz but tonnes of replayability. Generally I go for more complicated games.with a bit of engine building and worker placement involved. But I also like silly stuff such as Munchkin and Flux and shorter stuff like Carcassonne and seven wonders.
