A-Z Challenge Q is for Quelf

QUELF!! Oh my gosh this is the best board game, ever. Like, ever. Of all time. My family is into board games big time and we are always looking for a new fun game to play. We played Quelf all together for the first time after dinner on Easter and I honestly have never laughed so hard in my life. It was hysterical.

Some of the "action" cards we drew were unbelievable. Quelf is like a combo between a role playing game and a regular board game. Oh my gosh, we had the best time with it. Playing this game with my crazy family was hilarious. Have any of you ever played Quelf? Any of you ever play with a group of crazy Italians?  We take it to a whole new level!

PS: Sorry if I haven't responded to comments and/or dropped  many on your blogs, I'm having some computer drama. I have no idea what's going on, but I have a call into the Geek Squad my brother and hopefully, he will be able to figure it out and have everything back to normal soon.

  2. We love board games here at my family. I've got one for you Qwirkle, not exactly a board game either but a whole lot o fun.

    Sorry about the computer drama. It's the same here, but mine is definitely dying. I'm trying desperately to get the important stuff backed up on flash drives while keeping up my editing schedule. Sheesh!

    1. Oh, I'll have to check Qwirkle out. We are always hunting around for new games.

      I need to do a whole lot of back-up too. I'm hoping to do it this weekend. We'll see if I have enough time.

  3. I love board games. My brothers and I play them whenever we have a chance, which is not often. But those little chances are a blast! Hope you get your computer fixed soon

    1. The company you play with, I think, has a lot to do with the amount of fun that goes into playing. My family is nuts- therefore it takes that game to a whole new level of fun!

  4. Never heard of this game so I will have to check it out. I had computer problems last week so I understand how you feel, I am my own geek squad and I'm not very good.

    1. Hi Ann! I am barely computer literate; I'm lucky I can operate my own blog. I can figure out nothing by myself. I always defer to my brother, who works in IT. Thank God!!

  5. Stupid computers...I've been wanting to run mine over with the car for a few weeks now, but my husband refuses to get me a new one. So I'm suffering through it.

    I have never played that game and now will be giving it a shot. We are HUGE on board games here and usually play Apples to Apples because it causes a ton of laughter around the table. Thanks for the tip on a new game =)

    1. Ah- Apples to Apples! I can it from where I'm sitting here typing this. That game is a fav of ours too. The last time we played, my kids made my sister laugh so hard she peed her pants! :)

      I have a love/hate of computers. I know they make my life much, much easier to work on, but I hate trying to figure out what's wrong! I'm sure it's something I did.

  6. I've never heard of Quelf, but I can tell you this is something my family would love! My wife and I usually play Munchkin (card game), but we love board games too :)

    I hope you can get your comp fixed or, at least, make it more agreeable.

    Have a great weekend!

    1. MUNCHKIN! My daughter and I played that at a con and just recently picked it up to play at home. Fun stuff!

      I haven't heard about Quelf though. May have to check that out as well.

      Hi from Nagzilla bloghopping A to Z

    2. Hey Mark and Nagzilla- I will have to pick up Munchkin with both of you endorsing it. Sounds like fun!

      Here's hoping my brother can help me fix it. It's driving me nuts and making it very difficult to get my posts done and/or comment. Grrr!

  7. This one looks good. Is it kind of like Curses? My kids love that game.

    1. I don't know what Curses is like, but Quelf has action cards that require role playing and are like the "dare" in truth or dare. My brother's card said he had to put ice down his pants until he could roll a six on the dice or move back ten spaces. He took the challenge of course and his whole butt was soaking wet by the time he was done! Then, I wouldn't let him anywhere near my dining room chair without a towel to sit on; we were hysterical the whole time. I thought my kids were going to burst from laughing so hard!!

    1. We always play after we eat. Well, we eat play. Eat while playing. Eat after playing. You know how that goes. But it's something we always have fun doing. Quelf is great. A real action type game.
