take a deep cycle 12V battery and a DC to AC converter. Take the car plug apart, wire it to the battery. Then hook up a small TV, and a GC/Wii. Once you've got it all hooked up, start up the TV, then the GC/Wii.
EDIT: I wanted to note, I listed GC/Wii because they both take under 17W, and if you turn off WiFi you'll use even less power. I only had a 175W converter, so there is no way it could power a X360/PS3.
Hmm I wish I knew how to do that or even had the parts to do it, I have a SNES which would work quite nicely. It's been a while since I played it. I think I'll play some cards the next time the power goes out.
had one earlier in the week:
get a takeaway (we got curry)
chat with housemates
play rhumikub (never spell it right, the board game)
make tea using old gas heating thingy (cant remember what its called)
scare other housemate when he gets home from work
play word association
then the power came back!
read a book
My favorite games are Ticket to Ride
-On a quest for the truly perfect game; I don't think it exists...
Sorry, I have to ask: USA (w/ or w/o 1910), Europe (w/ or w/o 1912), or Marklin? Or some other board that we don't have?
USA w/ 1910 (obviously I play w/o sometimes).
I want to get the Ticket to Ride: Switzerland expansion so I can play 2 player games with my wife (I've heard it is the best version for 2-player games), but no one has it in stock.
I'd like to try Europe and Marklin, but considering how expensive they are and how little of a change they are from the one I have, I'd rather pick up some other games.
Board games with family(or at least siblings.) That never gets old.
But then what do you do 30mins before class
