Friends Are Just So Great!

I enjoyed a, maybe relaxing isn't the word....intensely, hilarious night playing my favorite card game EVER (NERTz) with some pretty awesome people last night. The Husband was on an overnight 4-wheeling trip with #1 and some friends. He absolutely can't stand playing this card game so I knew it was a good night to play until our eyeballs started burning. Or, our brains started exploding, whichever came first.

Yes, it was wild and chaotic and complete craziness!

What you can't tell from the pictures is that this game moves at the speed of light. There were cards flying all over the place. Literally.

#2 made it until about 1:15 am and then finally gave it up:

"Peter", whom I'm proud to say was my young padawan, basically beat the snot out of all of us. He made it extremely entertaining so we didn't mind losing to him!

The last of my wonderful guests left after
2:30 am.

As soon as I fell asleep at 2:45 am, I awoke to #3 throwing up in my bathroom at 3am.

Needless to say, I'm in sort of a semi-comatose state today. But, it was worth it!

That sounds hilarious. You might have to post how to play. I love card games but have never heard of this one.

First thought: How is it that Brian and Rhonda NEVER EVER EVER look older than they did when we all met them the first time way back before our respective tons of kids came along?! Why oh why?!

Second thought: although the social element sounds fun and totally would fill my bucket for days, that competition sounds nasty and scary and intimidating - I think I'd freak out and blow some nuerons or synapses!!!

Okay - I love games, too.
You're going to have to share how to play. :-)

It certainly sounds like lots of fun. ;-)

Hi , I found your blog by searching for "Nertz" online. It is cool to see others that know the game. I hope you don't mind but I just wanted to let you know about It has got a bunch of Nertz information there as well as videos and online Nertz games. Feel free to check it out. Also you, your friends/family are welcome to join fellow Nertz players in The National Nertz Association while you are there.
