Also, laughing together over these little situations, even though they're light and funny, still makes me realize every time I play, that I'm not the only female having these dumb things happen to me! Even if you don't win, it's still a feel-good experience.

Friday, August 1 is National Girlfriend's Day. Having a nationally recognized day to honor those all too important bonds is a great reason to plan a probably overdue Girl's Night Out. What can you do with your gal pals to celebrate what they mean to you? Why not host a Dame Game Night?
Call up the girls, stock up on tasty morsels and luscious libations and pick up What's a Dame to Do?!®, the premiere board game from games for dames®. The game is based on life's little Dame Dilemmas, dilemmas that all ladies (ages 17 to 97) can relate to and laughing through them with your girlfriends, old or new. It's quick, easy to play, low-tech fun. The game is about using our female intuition to guess how players would react to a dilemma such as having your 8 year old neighbor suggest you need plastic surgery or accidentally hitting a guy in the groin while boarding an elevator. What's a DAME to do?!
The other players give her possible reactions from the Reaction Cards they've been dealt, hoping she will choose the response they give as what she would actually do. Some Reaction Cards are reasonable responses like "Use diplomacy" or "Smile," but you might get something like "Speak with a foreign accent", "Use the hose", or "Pretend you're on a scavenger hunt". Bonus points are awarded for giving the funniest reaction. This is where the hilarity comes in, and the laughing becomes contagious. The game never gets raunchy, just edgy enough to keep things interesting and fun. Laugh until your stomach hurts kind of fun.
Kerri and Patti, sisters and the brains behind the game, created What's a Dame to Do?!® because they couldn't find a really fun and easy-to-play game for grown-up ladies. Since introducing the game last November, they've been hosting regular Dame Game Nights for their friends and getting lots of emails from females around the country doing the same. "It provides a great reason to carve out some time to spend with our girlfriends and laugh off all the stresses of the week with them, which we believe is vital to our mental health," states Kerri. "Also, laughing together over these little situations, even though they're light and funny, still makes me realize every time I play, that I'm not the only female having these dumb things happen to me! Even if you don't win, it's still a feel-good experience."
The game is unusual in that it's perfect for grown-up "dames" (17+) of all ages. Whether you're single or attached, playing in your dorm room, at your neighbor's kitchen table, at your favorite local hang-out, at a bridal or bachelorette party, or with the multi-generational females in the family, players are sure to have a great time because they are spending that oh-so-necessary time connecting with their girlfriends.
