Board Games Draft

7:48 PM

Originally the brilliant, talented and impossibly good looking kids at wanted to use the wikinition of board games as: "any game played on a board (that is, a premarked surface) with counters or pieces that are moved across the board."

We (that is to say this draft's tyrannical administrator) applied a completely subjective definition to what constitutes a "board game." At first I tried to justify my seemingly arbitrary decisions with pesky words, but then I finally settled on "What do I think of when I hear the term 'board game'?" If you really want me to, I suppose I can come up with a definition that allows Yahtzee, Boggle and Twister and excludes Pictionary, Taboo, Dominoes and Oujia boards. But I'm not going to. You can debate it in the comments.

It also excludes Set, apparently. Wahh! (I'm crying here because Set will inevitably ALSO be excluded from any Card Games Draft we have. And because I'm a whiny, entitled princess.)

Oh, I'm ALSO sad that no one drafted my SECRET favorite board game, the Saved By the Bell game, in which you got to go on dates.

The best game ever is clearly the sweet valley high board game. The whole point of the game is to go to prom with a cute boy.

Chris was 4-for-4 until he picked Cranium over Mancala and Operation. Seriously?
