Is there a funny, weird or interesting thing you "learned" from board games? Here's the place to share it!

UPDATE: I will give away 100 on 30 October if there are at least 1,000 items in the list. I will draw 3 random numbers and each item with that number will receive 33.3 . (Obviously I won't tip myself so I'll draw again if the number would be my item.) The more items you add to the list the higher your chances are to win geekgold!

Most Knizia games are pretty bland... kinda like living in a nursing home painted in soothing pastels...
