This was yet again one of those instances that prove spontaneous is better than planned.
My friends and I have been planning to meet up again to try this new themed restaurant along Tomas Morato. Dudes (yes, that’s his name) had been trying to get us all together for a night of fun and board games while munching on Japanese food over at Ludo Cafe. Unfortunately, we all had conflicting schedules so we didn’t really push through with it.
Until last Friday night.
Apparently, Urie was back in Manila and she texted me Friday morning if I was up for Ludo night with the guys. We all decided to meet up that afternoon at Katipunan, and it turned out al of us were available, so yay!
Ludo: Boardgame Bar and Cafe can be found in Scout Fuentebella Street Corner Scout Torillo, near Tomas Morato. I wasn’t able to take a photo of the entrance, but that night they were celebrating Batman Day, so they had a huge Batman logo right on the door, and bats made from cartolina pasted on walls, as my next photos show. Designs from the game Dix-it were also pasted on the walls.
The place was big enough, and had lots of tables, so it can accommodate quite a number customers, though I’m not really sure how long the customers stay considering we ourselves stayed there for more than two hours.
Tall shelves of board games, all over the place!
And to celebrate Batman day, this guy behind boyfriend - I’m guessing he’s the owner - as Bane! (Boyfriend with laughing chinky eyes, so cute! Heh heh.)
First game we played was Avalon, which is pretty much like Werewolf, only for this one, we have quests + good knights + evil knights + other special characters.
This was a fun game! We had three to four runs, I think, and I was one of the bad guys in two of those. Also, the bad guys won in every game. So much for good triumphing over evil.
And then, there’s Cards Against Humanity! I’ve been wanting to try out this game for a while now (I know, it’s a game for horrible people, judge me) and it turned out to be really fun and funny! Dirty game, too.
Then, there’s the classic Taboo for our last game, with boys against girls on the first run, and then couples after. The last time I played this game was in undergrad, and I almost forgot the basic rules too, haha. The boys won though. :/
Hopeful for more meetings like this again, before we’re back to our daily grind next month!
Three main cast members and the director will be flying in for the grand premiere. Will you be trooping to the venue to meet them?
IS THIS THE REAL LIFE BECAUSE OMYGADDDD LIKE SERIOUSLY
I CANNOT MISS THIS MY ENTIRE LIFE I CANNOT EVEN I JUST CAN’T
FINALLY OH MY FREAKING GAD I AM SPAZZING HERE PEOPLE
// EDIT: Well, now that I’ve finally calmed down a bit, I called the cinema and inquired about the whole red carpet premiere night.
Apparently, it’s invitational so tickets aren’t for sale, and that brings out a whole new gush of intense feelings because heaven knows I cannot miss this or I’ll regret this my entire life so I desperately need to find a way to get tickets somehow and see them and watch the movie and just be happy with my life — so I’m begging, please get me tickets!
Well, with or without tickets, I’m going there anyway just to see them, but still. My body is ready.
