Campfire bonding games

CampfireCampfire by Jason Pratt (cc by)

In Ask Metafilter, quiet coyote is looking for "good discussion-based games for 6 adults to play as a group that don't involve supplies other than pen and paper, and ideally help us learn more about each other rather than just passing the time."

Meanwhile, over in Mefi Music, the most favorited tracks of the past week have been: Workman 9 to 5; A Grand Unslam; Trapeze Act; Time (the Revelator)

The Re-Readables

By the moon, we sport and play, with the night begins our day.”By the moon, we sport and play, with the night begins our day.” by Decorating and other stuff (cc by-sa)

In my quest to read more I've found I'm drawn back to old favourites that I've already read multiple times. I'm ok with this because the reason they are re-readable is obviously because they are GOOD books that are lovable and rewarding to return to ...So I'd like to expand this repertoire by trying books that other people re-read often.

mymbleth asks What book(s) can you read over and over and over again?
