Default L.A.M.P. (Literature, Art, Music, Play) Creativity-centered Games

Anyone interested in real-time drills and amusements may enjoy the gatherings of the Facebook group I started, L.A.M.P., on Sundays at 6:30 EST in February and though March 21st. Most of the games we haved played in the past involve some creativity in coming up with either words, or pictures, or music, including some of the online Jackbox games, Watch Your Words, and others. We also do other sorts of fun things, like Improv games. Another Spherian, with a closely related first name, Marion Shore, has gone to many of the game nights in which we've also shared some poetry/songs/or art. If you are interested, please join us and check it out (drops-ins and suggestions welcome) The Meetup sign up link is below

Thank-you!

That sounds lovely. I would love to drop in one day (probably one day when I don't have to be up very early on Monday).

I have a rather lovely book of surrealist games if you're interested. Words and images and complete strangeness but with that tiny hint of rigidity the surrealists seemed to keep in their hearts.

8pm is 1am over here, Mario. Like Sarah, I really like the idea, but the timing is a challenge.

Same here, Mario. At 1 o'clock in the morning I start to look (and feel) like a zombie...

The time difference across The Pond makes it very difficult for us Brits to join in with stuff like this, into the wee small hours.
I look after my two-and-a-half year old grandson every Monday, so I need to have a good night's sleep every Sunday!

It sounds like a lot of fun. Say Hi to those who know us.

It's do-able. The question is probably more whether you want a phalanx of middle-of-the-night Brits joining you in a gin-fuelled haze.

If there is interest across the pond, maybe I could try hosting one of the February events at noon EST which would put it at 6:00 PM across the pond. If so, does mid month at that time sound good?

Hi,

That is completely and utterly lovely of you. Yes, I would be interested, and I would bring my surrealist games book. That is slightly underwhelming as a party offering, but at least it will translate well to zoom.

Thank-you!

Jane, and Jayne, and Matt, I hope you will be able to attend, along with others who live across the pond from Boston, a special Transatlantic edition of the L.A.M.P games at 12:00 EST, which will translate, I think, to 6:00 PM across the pond. If you'd like to sign up, here's the link:
