After-The-Hurricane Games

Posted on


Well, here we are, a few days after Hurricane Irene, waiting for the power to return. While it might be easy to start going stir crazy right about now, there are a few things you can do to maintain sanity. Games, for example. If you get bored out there in no-power land, try a few of these:

MAKE A CHESS SET OUT OF USED BATTERIES

PLAY ‘NAME THAT SMELL’ FROM THE REFRIGERATOR

WRITE NASTY LIMERICKS ABOUT ENOS, YOUR NEIGHBOR WHO OWNS A GENERATOR

DAILY LOTTERY TO SEE WHO GETS TO FLUSH THE TOILET

PRANK DAD WITH BOGUS UTILITY CREW SIGHTINGS

FLASH MOB AT THE LINE FOR ICE

DRIVE TO CANADA & BACK EACH NIGHT TO CHARGE YOUR CELL PHONE (THE IRENE 500)

DO A SHOT EVERY TIME THE GOVERNOR SAYS “SURGE” DURING A STORM UPDATE

STRIP PICTIONARY

TELL YOUR KIDS AGAIN ABOUT THE TIME YOU LOST POWER DURING HURRICANE GLORIA. THE KID WHO STAYS AWAKE LONGEST GETS AN EXTRA ROOM CANDLE

TWEET THE SOUND YOUR CHAINSAW MAKES

TELL SCARY STORIES ABOUT WHAT IT WAS LIKE BEFORE SALAD CAME IN BAGS

CREATE REPLICA OF STONEHENGE WITH TREE LIMBS

COUNT HOW MANY TIMES YOU FLIP A LIGHT SWITCH YOU ALREADY KNOW DOESN’T WORK

Stay safe, everyone!
