In continuing effort to bond and develop positive interactions with my family, I have recently been on a bit of a board game kick. Video games have long progressed beyond my interest in them - and role-playing games are best left as marital aids. Talking is out. I mean, who wants to hear about work, school, and friend related drama all day every day?
What else is there?
What's that? You assumed that board games were either endless Monopoly variants or some type of crazy wargame played by sweaty guys named Ernie and Wallace Quiverlip, Masters of the Painted Miniature? Yeah. Me, too. But board games have come a long way, baby.
Pick a theme and there is certain to be a game out there waiting to be played.
"Busen Memo is a memorization game, not dissimilar from Memory and Concentration. Here you must find the matching left and right breasts of 48 women."
It is hard enough to break the chains of nerdy stereotypes without something like Busen Memo coming along and setting the entire gaming community back forty years. Sadly, I know exactly what the suffragettes and women libbers felt like.
... And, considering their constant shame, professional wrestling fans.
Were I inspired enough, I would design and Kickstart an equal opportunity doppelganger game.
"Dicks and Pricks® is a memorization game, not dissimilar from Memory and Concentration. Here you must find the matching (and anatomically correct!) penis to the 24 men who love them. Uh-oh! Looks like someone's got Genital Warts! Just who can it be?"
|Matching this Dick to this Prick|
is worth 10 points!
ADVANCED RULES prototype
And if an endorsement deal can be worked out with Snoop Droopy Dick, this game stands a great chance of cracking the 'Urban Markets'.
Kind of like All My Baby Mamas.
But I am not even inspired enough to do follow-ups on Pee Pants Boy. You expect a fun, yet socially challenging gender politics game such as Dicks and Pricks®? Pfft. You ask a lot.
Instead I will be giving run downs on a small handful of board games these next few weeks. Hopefully, games that are interesting enough to inspire my many readers and followers.
... Because so many of them are slackers.
