2 Nintendo GameCubes, 8 controllers, 2 TVs, and 2 copies of Mario Kart: Double Dash!! = too much fun. This is perhaps the nerdiest thing I’ve ever participated in.

I’m not all that big into video games myself, but there’s nothing more fun then getting some friends together for a drunken night of Mario Party and/or Double Dash.

Hey now, you’d be surprised at how many non-videogame-playing people are willing to give an easy game like Mario Party a go when there’s alcohol involved.

As for Super Smash Bros. Melee, you’ve gotta be hardcore for that. :)
