I'm new to this site, and I was poking around in some of the old lists, and saw was a list from 2004 titled "If you could be IN a game"... what would it be? I can't seem to get it to link at the moment, but entries included Carcassone, San Marco, Pitchcar, etc.

This inspired me to start my first list - a sort of "would you rather" of board games. The question is, if you HAD to live in the universe of a Board game, which ones would you absolutely NOT want to live in?

Here are a few of mine... would love to see yours!

After 500 years, two factions emerge from their underground cities into a new world, an Earth reborn from nuclear disaster.

NORAD: military in thinking and origins. Scientists, engineers, add to their strength.

SALEMITES: occultists working with cadavers, bringing the dead to life.

Your mighty king conquers the surrounding kingdoms, bringing all under his sway. Then he dies without an heir. King Useless the Unready ascends the throne after a civil war and loses everything. Then you have a plague. Then a famine. Then another plague. By the end of the game, you have a tottering tower in a swamp outside Paris and a few dozen peasants scrabbling for filth and rats. And you win, because everyone else is even worse off.

I LOVE video games that cover this but to actually be on a merchant boat?

Think about it. It would take MONTHS to get to your destination. Not exactly a luxury cruise either.

Don't forget pirates and storms.

Plenty of games fall into this category.

I think I'll stick with the video game that can get me from Iberia to India in around an hour... whistle

Being a POW was never good. But considering the vast amount of times I played the Nazis and the rest of players managed to evade all their POWs, being there when the Gestapo arrives to see what happened must not be good either...

Boy would I hate it if I had idiotic family members who think Africa is a country in South America * .. and hollered across their houses about stupid stuff all the time.. and enjoyed kissing pretentious English two-bit actors who should have stayed on the game show they started on.. and.. and..

Oh. Um.. Wait a second...

I can't finish this, I have to go. My family is screaming at each other.

(*-- there is actual evidence of this astounding response to " Name A country In South America" on Youtube. Will try to find it later.)

A world in which you have a wife who spends all your income on coocking supplies; babies that come every so often and need to be taken care of; 1 mortgage on the house; a second mortgage on the car; a job to do... repeat over and over...

Wouldn't want to...

But, wait a second... THIS IS MY LIFE!!!!

Ah, Westeros... if you're not a main character, you may as well be the dirt on the bottom of the nobles' boots or the leeches on Roose Bolton. If you are a main character, you can look forward to you or your loved ones losing their heads, getting thrown from towers, being sent to the Wall to freeze your body parts off, or getting eaten by direwolves, dragons, or Tyrion Lannister.

So, while I love the books (just started #3) and look forward to trying the game...

No. Thank. You.

Invite people to your palace, which may or may not fall down. If they are there too long someone might come along and kick them out. They might see some fireworks, but are real likely to die from famine, plague or Mongols.
