This reminds me. I brought FLUXX to a 'girls night'. I just had one drink (I rarely drink- they ordere a fuzzy navel for me- kinda yuck- like bad orange juice)...anyway. They were all a bit tipsy. And the game wasn;t a "serious. I'm gonna play to win game," but they sure had a LOT of playing! And like you said- winning at FLUXX can be done just esily half drunk- it's often luck of the draw. They said I brought thatgame on pupose to confuse them because I knew they'd be drinking. I thought, "If I wanted to do that, I'd have brought Volcano or Martian Chess".
I see nothing wrong with drinking while playing... but I think maybe that should be done at home. If you have 5 tables of different gamers playing different games and they are all inebriated I can only see that as becoming very loud and too much commotion.And that's not make a good game playing environment for the entire store.
But a 'adult gameing store' with alcohol is fine- as long there is a family friendly one in town, too.

I agree with you entirely.  I too know many many gamers who prefer to have a beer or three while gaming.  I also kind of laughed when someone said something about alcohol inhibiting the mental function required to play and enjoy games.  I immediately thought that I could just as easily win at Fluxx as tipsy as can be. :lol:  Several of the LL games could easily be enjoyed very inebriated because they aren't huge brain burners.
