Coming soon to a poker table near you: the Poker Shot Clock


By web gangsta | Published:

Have you ever played a game with friends – any game, really – where your friends took a ridiculously long time to make their move?

No wonder nobody likes to play Monopoly anymore – if you played by the official rules, the game would be over in an hour.  Web Watch witnessed a Bunko night where the “lead table” decided to stop rolling dice and have a conversation — the other three tables revolted and demanded that the round end after 10 minutes had passed.

By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has a number of friends who play the collectible card game MAGIC: THE GATHERING.

They get together every week or two to play, have a few beers, and enjoy each other’s company. We’ve tried playing MTG (as the nerds refer to it), but Web Watch just couldn’t get into it. We’ve played online card-based games, such as MONSTER MASTER, and for us they seem to be more fun online than in person — but then again, games like that have simpler rules than MTG would have, which ultimately makes MTG a more interesting game overall.
