Happy Tuesday Novas! I have spent the last week with some friends and we have been playing all sorts of board games (review on Monopoly Gamer coming soon!). It’s crazy how much fun you can have making up scenarios and just playing with friends. Today’s post will collaborate with some of my blogging buddies to talk about some of our favorite Gaming Bail Outs in board and video games. What’s a gaming bailout? It’s when you use a feature of the game to get out of a sticky situation. Well let’s get to it!
My initial reason for this post was because we played a Monopoly Game called Monopoly Gamer. All of the properties were bought and we were running out of coins to pay people’s rent. So myself and my friend’s husband decided we were going to try and roll the exact number to step on the “Go To Jail” space rofl. That’s right, we wanted to go to jail so that we could forego paying rent for a few turns, tell me you haven’t done that before???
Chris from Overthinker Y told us about his favorite gaming bailout.
Fast travel to get me out of awkward situations would be amazing. Or quicksaving to try every conversation outcome and make sure I don’t say something dumb!
Adventure Rules chimed in as well!
In RPGs with a rest function (like KOTOR or Neverwinter Nights) if a group of enemies was giving me trouble I’d always run away, close the doors so they didn’t see me and start following, and then rest to get all of my health and abilities back. Then go back, open the doors and continue fighting!
Nathan from Hurricane Thought Process and I’s answers go hand in hand!
Mid boss fight when you’ve run out of health potions. Oh, like when playing an RPG or Moba and you run out of mana. I would always hit the opponent with a basic and roll around until I regained enough mana to attack 😂🤣🤣
Kim from Later Levels Added in her gaming bailout as well:
In old-school adventures, when you get stuck, open your inventory and try everything with everything! You’ll usually find something completely random and illogical that’ll work.
Those are some of our favorite video game bailouts! Make sure to check out everyone’s blog for great video game content! What are some of your classic gaming bailouts? Are there any bailouts that you wish existed? Let’s talk video games!
Enjoy your Wednesday and Game On!
