We followed that with a couple of rounds of Fluxx, which Slinky picked up quickly enough to win both games. Slinky picked Before I Kill You, Mr. Bond as the next game (You can't buy it. It doesn't exist. But keep an eye out for James Ernest's Totally Renamed Spy Game. Lawyers.) Then we went for SPANC, which is almost as much fun just for the Foglio pictures as the game play.
By then celticdragonfly was needing a break, so we dug out a two-player game: The Awful Green Things From Outer Space. This is a board game version of the movie Alien, with horrid creatures breeding and trying to eat the crew while they try to find a weapon that can kill the Things. Sometimes a weapon can backfire and triple the number of Things (which usually ends the game with a quick Thing victory). The opposite extreme is having the best weapon (ranged area-effect) cause serious damage, which can guarantee a crew win. We had both of those happen in this game. So it was very close. If it hadn't been Slinky's first time playing the game he probably would've avoided his one big mistake (bunching up in front of my best weapon) and won.
