No, seriously -- it looks like they're going to announce the game at Comic-con. Here's the first card image posted over at CBS:



They announced it on Facebook today and gave a link to this thread over at the BBT community forum on the CBS Web site: http://www.cbs.com/forum/posts/list/160125.page;jsessionid=0...

Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.

That's pretty cool. Although I have always been a little bummed that the show didn't use some real board games.

Do they? Is that recent? I'm a little behind.

Ok, I found an older thread about the boys playing Talisman... sort of. They were using the board and pieces, but the show's writers turned the game into a simple roll and move game. Ugh... I don't count that.

In fact, I remember watching the episode in question and thinking to myself, "Why don't they play a real board game!" I didn't realize that it was actually worse -- they were butchering a real board game.

Hopefully they can come up with some more compelling gameplay than what is on the TV show (e.g., playing one card at a time in a circle).

Maybe more a promotion than a real game? That card looks like it came from a CCG, but what they played in the show seems more akin to Uno.

Didn't they play a game of adapted 3 player chess?

Enter crabbyman...

I personally cringe with this show. I've always felt it was a game about geeks written for people who make fun of geeks. I'll take The IT Crowd any day.

I will buy it only if it's a good game.

You're suggesting that Talisman is more than a simple roll and move game? devil

When they play it, it looks like a themed trick-taking game. Even if they kept it that simple (again, not turning it into a Muchkin/Fluxx/Magic with no thought to actual balance/gameplay) I'd buy it.

I caught an early episode and typified it as "Let's laugh at people on the autistic spectrum!"

I've caught later episodes and it's not that bad now. But the writing is not geek from the inside, like the IT crowd (which spreads the dysfunction evenly around all characters of varied neurotypicality).

This is similar to what I thought about the show... When it first aired, I caught the first few episodes and thought that it wasn't a show of making geek fun, it was a show making fun of geeks, so I didn't continue watching it. But because of the relative amount of buzz in the geek world about it, I decided it give it another shot. By the end of the first season, it shifts to humor a geek can actually appreciate, and the times they're making fun of geeks it seems more like an introspective look at ourselves rather than schoolyard taunting. Seasons 2 and 3 are really good, and while season 4 was also good, they're falling into a lot of the same traps that american sitcoms always do.

What's wrong with Munchkin and Fluxx? Am I not supposed to like those games?
