Games you can play in the dark

Ok,

5 games you can play in the dark when there is a power cut.

Any ideas?

POWER GRID

OK, now that the dumb joke running through my head is out... a couple more serious suggestions. Now, I'm at work, and the Geek is blocked :( So I may not have the exact right names.

1. Nacht de Magier - A fun little dexterity game with glow in the dark pieces. It can be played in the light, but is far better in the dark.

2. The German game where you have to hide gnomes from a candle's light. The pictures are very striking, and I'd love to try it. About all I know about it right now is it starts with a W.

3. Vampire Hunter (I believe) - a silly little roll and move game from a couple years back. The hook of the game was that there was a tower that would have a red or blue light on it. When the light changed, lots of elements on the board would also change. Nifty mechanic, kinda corny game...but decently fun in a pinch (especially if there's a good storm outside).

That ends my really confident section...the next couple may be a bit shakier :)

4. Assuming you have some light (candles / flashlights) maybe a game like Once Upon A Time or Nanofictionary would work. They are both storytelling games, so you'd just need to have enough light to be able to read the one / two words on your card. The rest is just chaotic storytelling.

5. Khet / Deflexion - I just think it would be really cool to be able to see the red light glowing as you hit the button at the end of your turn.

And to end off, another lame joke game that popped in my head as I was writing this... DUEL IN THE DARK.

I'm looking forward to what other people have to say, I live out in the country, and am kind of prone to power outages.

Hi,

I guess you mean in point 2. the Waldschattenspiel or translated "the forest shadow game", don

I forgot to check the name up after I got home from work that day. Thanks for the assist. Also, thanks for the Adam Spielt tip, I may have to give them a look see.

And have the dark tales expansion?
