What are you playing: Formula Spies Like Us
by Xav de Matos, shacknews.com, Jun 18, 2011 12:00PM PDT
After a week of playing and writing about the digital age of gaming, it's nice to revisit the analog world and play some board games. For the first time since I was a teenager, I sat down and played some board games. Last night I ventured out to Jeff Cannata's place to partake in a few hours of old school gaming bliss.
It was great to sit back and play games like The Resistance and Formula D (shown above) with a slew of people. On the track we had Jeff from Weekend Confirmed and Totally Rad Show, TRS producer Mike, and co-hosts Alex and Dan along with their friend Mark, and Peter from /Film. It was an epic evening of hunting for spies and racing through Monaco.
What are you up to this weekend, Shackers?
