(with absolutely no apologies at all to Rupert Holmes)

I was tired of my Cluedo; we’d Trapped Mice for too long;
Chequers, Sorry! and Ludo always felt kinda wrong
So while she lay there sleeping I read my paper in bed
And in the personal columns, there was this letter I read:

If you like Reiner Knizia and shipping cubes with a train
If you’re not into Triv’ya, if you have half a brain
If you like Power Grid at midnight played with real poker chips
Then I’m the gamer you’ve looked for, come with me and Eclipse!


I didn’t think about my Ludo, I know that sounds kind of mean
But me and Monopoly had fallen into the same old dull routine
So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad
And I listed the games there that I thought weren’t half bad

Yes, I like Reiner Knizia, Wallace, Chudyk and Breese
I like placing my workers, auctions, bluffing and Friese
I’ve got to meet you by tomorrow noon and Sail to India in ships
At a bar called O’Meeples where we’ll plan our Eclipse!


So I waited with high hopes and she walked in the place
I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face
It was my own lovely Ludo and she said, "Aw, it's you."
Then we laughed for a moment and I said, "I never knew."

That you like Reiner Knizia and Terra Mystica’s charms
And the sound of a box fart and loads of games in your arms
If you like Agricola at midnight with the E, I, K decks
You’re the partner I’ve looked for, come with me and Eclipse!

If you like Reiner Knizia and Through the Ages with three
If you’re not into Triv’ya, then come Targi with me!
If you like Perudo at midnight and rolling loads of d6
Then I'm the gamer you've looked for, write to me and Eclipse!


(repeat to fade...thank the good Christ!)
