It was nice having multiple people in the kitchen; your friends.. chatting while cooking. Made me feel like I was in a NYC sitcom about twenty-somethings. It was a very friendly feeling.
Afterwards we played Bonanza! I've never played it with 6 people before, but it definitely ups the fun. Highly interactive.
Then Peter and I went back to play WarioWare. Which was awesome, satisfying, and makes for a great party game.
