What a great weekend I just had! Friday night, we had friends over. We watched Shaun of the Dead and Army of Darkness while playing Zombie Dice , Battle Cards and Forbidden Island. If that doesn't sound cool to you, then you aren't geek enough to hang with me ; )
We decided to host our miniature zombie fest when I discovered that my 8 year-old son had never seen either Shaun of the Dead or Army of Darkness. This was discovered while we were on vacation when someone brought up Ash Williams and his "boomstick". My son did not know the reference so we resolved to rent Army of Darkness once we came back from vacation. After we got back from vacation, we learned that Necronomicon 2010 was not cancelled, as we had previously thought. (Great news for us as we love Necro) Bonus for us, the theme of the convention this year is "Zombie Apocalypse". So we went to the video store and rented the movies, invited friends, added games and snacks, plus copious quantities of soda; before we knew it, 5:00 AM! It was all great fun!
