Every time I think about board games, I think about being a kid and playing with all of my cousins for hours on end. I think the problem with becoming an adult, is that we sometimes forget to embrace our “silly” side, and to do simple things to have a good time. On this particular night I invited all of my work besties over for a fun girls night! It was the first time we all got together in my house, and the girls even got to meet Ollie!
Our game of choice? Deer Lord! It’s is a Social Party Game where players challenge each other to wacky “Duels,” and also attempt to “Dupe” each other by secretly getting away with outrageous social actions unnoticed. Deer Lord! began as European independent game phenomena. The new revised editions differ from the original in several ways. The new edition rules are more expansive than the minimalist version in the classic edition. Also the classic “Do Something” cards have become “Dupe” cards in the new editions.
What’s hysterical is that I am a terrible liar, and pretty much everyone called me out every single time I tried to Dupe anybody! It made it pretty funny for everyone involved. It’s definitely not my strong suit considering I laughed every single time I attempted to dupe anybody. We laughed till we cried, and my face hurt at the end of the night because of it. I think as adults, we forget how much fun we can have just sitting at our house, it’s not always about going out. It was such a simple night with friends but ended up being exactly what we needed after a long work week. If you want to try the game for yourself it’s now available in Target stores.
