Another Wednesday, another GYGO! I haven’t been playing much lately, but I did have some fun revisiting some old favorite board games recently—Trivial Pursuit: Bet You Know It!, in which you can answer trivia questions or bet on whether your friends will get the answers right, Slash, which is like Apples to Apples but you discuss why two characters are the perfect OTP instead of why two words make sense together, and my favorite game maybe ever, One Night Ultimate Werewolf.
