Red Bull Discovered

Last Friday, I was at a barbecue with my family and the host had this huge ice chest filled with Red Bull energy drinks. I had never tried one, because they are pretty expensive, and I’m just not an energy drink sort of guy, or so I thought.

I tried one and really liked it, so I had another immediately afterward.

I was so jazzed it was just silly, and I mean jazzed in a good way, not in an overly caffeinated jittery soon-to-be bitter and tired kind of way. I was just energized and ready to have some fun.

I don’t have any substance vices of any kind, unless you count Dr. Pepper, but this little can could seriously get me in trouble. Luckily, the price tag is still too high for such a little can.

I had stuck a copy of Family Fluxx in my pocket before we left the house. The Fluxx card game is a quick little filler game that easy to play and great to bring into gatherings where people come and go. The rules of the game and the win conditions are determined by the cards as they are played, and some rules and all goals will replace previously played conditions. It’s a very fluffy little card game, but for the price, I think it’s a great deal. I highly recommend that you grab a Red Bull and a copy of Fluxx and go party.

  1. Fluxx is a perfect example of a game that is not well-rated by hobby gamers but works well with my family. My kids love this game. The adults have more trouble figuring it out, but I think it is because they are thinking too hard.

    Its not the size of the can, but what it does for you….that determines its value ;o)

  3. […] It’s refreshing to read about his re-discovery of Dungeons and Dragons and thrift store finds like the family fun Penguin Pile-Up. Jeff also blogs about game night parties, something I’ve always promoted here, like his Halloween themed party with spooky snacks and games galore and even a pirate themed party in honor of the national talk like a pirate day … which is actually about a month away for 2009.   And hop along for the blog post about Jeff’s discovery of the gaming fuel of Red Bull […]
