So I used to be on BGG every day, like 3 times a day (or more). Then, some life happened, and I got sucked into A Game of Thrones: LCG (which is fantastic by the way and you should get sucked in too!)

Recently, the board game bug has bit me yet again, and I reminisced back to the days of Melissa's Chain Game Geeklists and how they kept me amused at work. So, to celebrate my reemergence here on the Geek, I thought I'd start a Limerick Chain Game.

Here's how it will work: You write a limerick describing a game, and then the next poster who can decipher which game your limerick refers to will add a post with that game. In that item, he or she will compose their own limerick, passing on the chance to guess to others. I'll start with an example and then a clue in the below item.

Good luck; have fun!

There once was a game about farmers
But farmers who liked to wear armor.
They pushed their ore yields
Or plowed and sowed fields....
Did this fire the Gric or just harm her?

So of course the above limerick is referring to Caverna. You get the idea....

Here's your clue for game #2, which you can add and pass along if you'd like to play:

Our costumes were made out of nylon
And I needed a friend to rely on
I pressed an election
But my friends were defectin'
I didn't think they were a .....

Good idea, and nice start!

Hermit crabs, as they grow, look for shells.
And wizards oftentimes search for spells.
But for a tsunami
Of tasty umami,
I suggest you seek out some ...

Well, the air here is getting quite chilling
But the history in this next one is thrilling
Who cares if it's war
Of course, the people it's for
It's a bona fide conflict sans killing

Hell with it, I'm making a limerick.

In underground pools get a dunking,
carry rope or the drops hurt your pumpkin.
Snap pics with great care,
pitch a tent if you dare,
it's all great fun when you're ...

King!

You forgot to put in the last word of my previous limerick (spelunking).

Here's one for my all-time favorite game.

The game's all recruitin' and fightin',
build your stacks, summon Angels for smitin'.
The inner ring is the the thing
for the beasts that are kings,
Lions, Hydras and (War)Bears all in ...

You ended with titan, right? I would never have guessed, if you didn't say it was one of your favorites. I'll look into that one, I dismissed it for the coverart.. Shame on me!

There once was a game by these Dutch guys
About shipping and trading and spice
But the thing that I miss
Is this game's tricky twist--
You play while closing your eyes!

More daring than on a trapeze,
Flying down through fiery trees.
If the woods are all burnin',
it's to them you'll be turnin',
out of planes leap (oh my!), these.
