Games in which the player, at first, doesn't know how to play the game?

In some video games, the player's first task is to figure out what they should be doing. So the first part of the game is learning how to play the game. Are there any non-video, non-digital games like this? [more inside]

Who's writing about video games?

I'd like to learn more about video and digital games. I don't know where to start. I'm thinking--there must be bloggers, games writers, etc. who are writing about both classic video games and new releases? Who are they? [more inside]

Weekend-Long Games?

What are your favorite long-form parlor games? Something that lasts hours or days (that would be appropriate for a weekend at a beach house, like I'm doing on Mem Day weekend). We don't want to buy anything, like the murder-mystery games packets you can buy online. [more inside]

Conversation and Impromptu Games

What are some fun impromptu games--I'm thinking like Punch Buggy, or Not It? AND, what are some fun conversation games--like Would You Rather, or The Dozens, or Questions, or Existential Rock Paper Scissors?

Fun social games for adults?

What are some fun, social, outdoor games that adults might like to play? I'm thinking games like Capture the Flag, or any of the new crop of "urban games" like city-wide tag. I'd like to organize some events for friends--anywhere from just a few people to dozens. Anything you particularly think is a blast?
