Have a baby!"
i guess this makes me a winner in the game of life
I'm a big fat loser :D
Screw you, Game of Life. Screw. You.
for all your cats
*safety wink ;)*
Poleconomy (don't ask)
Agrihazard (monopoly for rurual folk. Sample card: 'Your potatoes have got blight! Pay £500')
Funfair (pick a booth! any booth! What?)
I give you C-JUMP
It's a game both theo AND me can enjoy, on different levels.
"This game is not only about teaching and learning: it's fun and entertainment for the whole family!"
:-) I'll be honest... I can't see my mum going for this over Scrabble anytime soon.
Sounds amazing. If you ever invite me round to your place (which you won't) we should have a game.
Come to Ely and I'll show the (flat) sights!
I don't have agrihazard anymore though.
You're not interested now are you?
You know it makes sense
The golf-based board game.

At least you had one or two choices in the Game of Life. Like if you'd go over that hill, or go the other way around the board.
If I remember correctly, you could also choose the sex of your kids.

Pretty sure you couldn't pick the sex of your children, you just had whichever one(s) you happened to land on

Pictionary was good!

It comes with a balaclava, which you have to wear if you're the person designated as being in "The Axis of Evil." I shit you not. Some of the most politically incorrect evenings of my life were spent playing that game...
Also, Cluedo. Total shite. Articulate is the one for me.
If you're looking for a shit game, check out Monopoly you capitalist swine.
all you get in the game of life is a car with room for two kids, and from memory a final salary pension at the end. you might as well play a board game based on my commute to work.
*don't play me at monopoly. it brings out the worst in me. i'm quite a nice person normally.
"The new middle manager propositions you for no-strings-attached workplace sex. Go ahead two spaces — but beware HR's new 'Staff Relations and Conflict of Interest Policy'."
"Global Financial Crisis! You lose your job AND your share investment portfolio — go back to START and commence on your new career path: alcoholic."
a hefty bonus and a reduction in your tax burden."
where you start out as sole heir to your near-retirement-age father's financial services business and work you way up to majority shareholder in the world's largest media corp?
that was pretty awful
and i found this in the english department's library:
