…Okay, so I actually bought this one and put it in my house. (After hearing about it on the Flip the Table podcast, I couldn’t resist.) This is a game that subverts board game conventionsbut not in the “lol, this space says I’m incontinent now*” (*this is an actual space) way that The Game of REAL Life does it. Rather–

Sometimes the game directs you to switch money and chairs with your opponents; sometimes it forces you to go back three spaces if “someone is smiling.” Sometimes you have to do an impression of a rock:

The spaces are equally weird and creative:

Man. Is this why people have friends? So they can play weird games like this? Now I wanna do a podcast where we play weird dumb games!!

I HOPE EVERYONE ENJOYED BOARD GAME WEEK HERE AT THE YARDSALING TO ADVENTURE INTERNET BLOG. Next week: probably more weird board games, because seriously there’s so many of them, and they’re all over the yard sales.
