Fuck You! isn’t the real name of that game already? 😛

Technically, pretty much all of these games are The Game of White.

I can’t wait for TANK 2: The Re-tankening

“Fuck You” could also be applied to Risk, and Monopoly.

Are these all board games? I swear, some of them look like novels.

That’s the beauty of the old Avalon Hill games. (They’re even called Bookcase Games.)

My dad has Europe vs. The Arrows, I think.

I think a couple might be old RPG rulebooks…

I cannot fully express the rage I feel every time I play Sorceror’s Picnic. Every single time I’m almost done finishing one of the menial tasks that one of the lazy bastard wizards has dumped on me, the dice roll in exactly the wrong way. Then the local townspeople steal all of the magical plot devices I’ve collected, I get transported to the Dragon’s lair (which is either hemmed in by impassable mountains or on an island with no boats), and demons sit on my head for the next fortnight.

Fuck you, High Wizard Fucktrumpet. If it’s so important to the fate of the world that the elves have someone bring them shiny rocks and sing whalesongs to them, you can waddle out of your shack and do it yourself.

Hates that game, I do.

Wood for sheep… wish I’d thought of that when my then-boyfriend would get involved in hours-long Settlers of Cattan games. I have never met someone who liked that game who didn’t take it way, way too seriously.

Where the hell can I find a copy of the soundtrack for Rise of the Disco Nazis? Please, somebody I need it because it can only be one the greatest things ever bestowed upon humanity.

Disco and Nazis. Two things that are both unspeakable evil.

Yes, penguins are assholes.

And I have a cousin married to a guy obsessed with locomotives…

Hi, I’m going to be that guy… could anybody list what these games really are? Some of them seem interesting (from the covers alone, mind you) without the crazy titles.

You know, as much as I like the title, “Penguins Are Assholes”, I really think you could have left in “Hey! That’s My Fish!” and people would still have believed you’d photoshopped in a title. :)

For shame! They have names, you know! They are Henry, Junetta, LaMar and Moesha Token!

Also note that the only white people on the box looking and smiling at them are the ones waving at them as they drive away.

“I have never met someone who liked that game who didn’t take it way, way too seriously.”

I doubt there’s a single game my group could ever take totally seriously. With Settlers it’s pretty much sheep jokes all the way down.

I love these, especially Agricola and Penguins are Assholes. Fuck, but that game is hard.

And the Catan game is nothing. We played Bang! once and it completely devolved into “stop banging me” and, “Hey Scott, I’m totally banging your wife” and “we’re all having one big gangbang”. It was exactly as mature as you’re picturing.

You obviously never played Diplomacy if you think Risk or Monopoly come even close to ‘Fuck You’ territory.

Our university game group had a semester long Diplomacy game running every semester, where turns were done in one week increments and you had the whole week to find the other players and negotiate with them on campus. Just being seen in the presence of another player over the week could result in diplomatic clusterfucks as everybody suspected you were building an alliance with them.

Thanks, MGK!

And the one time I played Settlers, at a conference thing, all I got was wood. Only wood. By the end of that weekend I was the Lumber Baron.

Heehee. “Three sheep give me a wood.” Is there any other reason to play that game?

‘Castration’!

ie a photoshopped Operation box.
