Do you bring any games with you when you cruise

I always travel with a cribbage board.

We also sometimes bring LCR.   Although next cruise I am packing a game called Exit, where you have to solve a series of riddles to escape a situation. In this case, a locked cabin.

Not usually. When I have brought some, they never got used. We have cruising friends that bring scrabble and we have yet to play a game with them. If we have down time, it is usually reading..

Not usually. A book or two and that is about it.

No we don't, we bring books. Depending on who I'm locked in a cabin with, I'm not sure i would want to get out.Wink

Cribbage is played on submarines. You have to play the Captain before you can earn your Dolphin pin. I also think the ships all have a library with board games as well.

We sometimes have a travel size crib board with us to play if we have long stopovers in airports, but usually DH plays solitaire on his iPad or phone and I read books I've brought with me. I still prefer paper over digital books.

I agree with Todd that the ship libraries also have books, and Carnival has given out decks of cards at Guest Services if you ask.

No. But if I had a female travel companion I'd enjoy bringing a board or card game along or using the games in the library. I enjoyed playing them in the past growing up or when I was in the Navy. But as a bachelor living alone I started feeling kinda silly playing the board games against myself. So I stopped.

So, did anyone else wonder if Exit was a real game when you saw BAK started the discussion?Big Smile It is real, I checked, and it looks fun!

I am prohibited from posting fake news and / or off topic discussions.

I’m lucky I can post anything humorous.

Our son Chris likes to play an online version of Exit, he wants to go to one of the Escape Rooms. We usually take a deck of cards, have not taken time to play yet, but we have went to the library and played Connect 4.

Our neighbours went to a local "Exit" and had a ton of fun.
