We have an established gaming group of five friends. We get to play about every other month so we want to cherish the time we have found. What would be some of the styles in selecting which games to play? We have now introduced the “Dealer’s choice” so the host of the night gets to pick one game. Selecting games has not been a problem for us (except we don’t all get to play the game we would want) as everyone is quite happy with the games we play but what kind of ways have you seen? Voting? Dictatorship? Round-robin?
