So, inspired (contaminated? infected? defiled?) by this thread:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/22398/distracted-with-...
I thought it would be fun to have a thread where people come up with (or simply post, if you've already done this) a limerick or short poem about gaming.

Groaning is encouraged.

I, will be the first victi...umm...volunteer.

I cannot live without Boardgamegeek
Not for an hour - let alone week.
So whilst on vacation,
I take medication,
Lest onto my wife's Nook, I can sneek.

A friend notified me by memo,
of a geeklist he'd like me to demo
It was quite erudite,
and simply polite
'til someone tacked on Busen Memo.

Game night was already lame,
Then Munchkin drove me insane,
'til Jane took this feller,
Down into the celler,
Where we found a new 2-player game.

Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.

There once was a board game by Feld
That many mechanics did weld
You gain Trajan tiles
And make them by wiles
And take points from pieces you held

I do love a game of Eclipse
With it's cylinders, cubes, chits and ships
While I love it to pieces
My performance is 'faeces'
So does anyone else have some tips?

I tried to think of a limerick
About my favourite game, Agric'
My first reaction's
to consider the actions
and how the first player gets his pick!

Let me tell you all about this game:
Simple to learn, but complex just the same.
Even a first-timer can see,
a clear path to victory...
Oh no, I don't have enough trains!

“You’re a spy!” “No I am the resistance!”
“You lie!”. “No!” I said with persistence.
I was cleared of suspicion.
As I approved each mission.
Until I wiped out their existence.

There once was a board game Catan,
That once had a great, many fan.
'Till it got overplayed,
It's welcome overstayed,
And now it is basically banned.

I once played a game of 'T' Struggle,
It ended turn 4, on the double.
I lost as US,
And now you can guess
Why I was in such deep trouble.

I very much enjoy Firenze.
"Let's play again" all my friends say.
But when I suggest
Chicago Express,
They'd rather read Pascal's Pensees.

My newest game is Francis Drake;
The best components for god's sake.
I can't wait to play
(How much this box weigh?)
I'll eat it, too, and have my cake.
