It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

That image should totally be accepted.

Nothing wrong with a picture like this being here , that's what the mature tag is for and it is board-game related (just as much related as the cat in box pics that get added all the time). If you don't like it then don't look at pictures with a mature tag.

"Mature"!? There are not even nipples!

I mean, this is a decolletée, so what - in summer, half of the females walk around in public like that - and I don`t mean the tattoo.

Question: Would you go out or whatever with a person tattooed like this - no matter, if female or male? I mean, if you like that game, you always have to read it sucks, and if you don`t, you have to see it all the time!

I would say, bad choice for such a prominent place of your body!

Did the uploader take the pic himself or have permission to upload it here?

Yeah! This picture is just as good as all those other pictures that shouldn't be here either!

Not a good argument.

I think, this image is a very valuable contribution to this site, especially for the more philosophically interested boardgame-lovers. It shows the fatal mixture of mainstream seductions in life, the confusion of a youth between devotion and refusal of the modern world - compressed in a single shot.

All the things we as boardgamers thought to overcome - "the curses of our time" (to cite the "Bard of Stratford" here): Greed, Careers, the obsession with money combined with cheap thrilling easy riders like this young woman, been painfully painted under her skin to please the crowd - or her own underdeveloped self-esteem ...

... let`s fight this "Game of Life" - but wait, regarded a bit more dialectically, the tattoo itself says: "This Game sucks!", so:

It is a comment to life altogether, right? To all of our mediocre mainstream lives, as we live them here and now.

And, to cite the "Dead Kennedys": "Why don`t you take your social regulations and shove`em up your ass?" Isn`t this the precise formula, this young, intelligent lady wants to disclose the people staring at her, as if she would be an animal in a zoo?

There is more in this than meets the eye at first glance, and should be "pic of the month"!


Please, whoever submitted that - ask via the original website for permission, if not already done and submit it again and again, put it into your personal gallery, so people can give it thumbs and start some heavy thinking!

The fight against stupidity has just begun!

A second ago I found this statement by "Nicole" (whose decoelletee you can see in the OP) in the forum thread concerning the first outlines for this piece of pop-art:

"its a joke. . .its a long running joke for me with some friends that i don`t really get to see anymore, “this game sucks” was something that we said about anything that we got frustrated with and the like. its not meant to be negative, its a joke! the board game sucks, true, and at times life (actual life) sucks, everyone thinks so at some point. . . but its not a “hey i’m gonna go kill myself” thing. i love it. its funny to me, and i’m more than overjoyed to have it. i dont think of it as negative, tho i can see how it could be taken that way."

Her own entry linked from the forum:
