1. Board Game: Coup [Average Rating:7.04 Overall Rank:437]

It is weird when the players all claim
That the card which they hold is the same.
Since you're surely not rude,
You will have to conclude:
There are five or six dukes in the game.

The bamboo will shoot up like a dream
Just as long as it's reached by a stream.
If the panda will eat it,
Things just might get quite heated,
And the gardener, at that point, might scream.

As you silently think what to do,
As in, which word to give as a clue,
All your friends will be there;
As you silently stare,
They'll be silently staring at you.

At some point you might see you are done,
That your chances of winning are none.
So you rethink your tactic,
And the game becomes frantic,
When you start to attack everyone.

You're with friends in a house that's quite queer;
Every moment, new rooms just appear.
Soon a friend will betray you
(At this point we won't say who),
Then all hell will break loose, grab your gear!

It's a game that's not hard to explain.
You pick cards to make routes for a train.
Find the right combination
To link up the nation
While driving your rivals insane!

Some prosper by building their Wonder,
While others hire armies for plunder.
But for scoring obscene,
Grab a great bloc of green:
New concepts that drive the old under!

It's said that King Ludwig went mad,
Declared that square shapes were just bad.
He build floor plans angled
And room shapes newfangled
But his castle did not start a fad.

What some don't seem to understand,
is that dealing in beans is ever so grand.
"Trade two for three?",
"No, but I'll take them for free."
Whatever you do, don't sort that hand.

When trying to control the Tokaido
You really must count on your Daimyo
Guns and horses are best
But make them Loyalty test
Or the capital might move to Edo


Or a little less tasteful:
There once was a man named Ishida
Who was trying to become the big Leader
But at Sekigahara
Came Tokugawa
And Ishida became a big bleeder

So look me straight in the eye,
"Sir, I have but two loaves of rye".
But then there's the snap,
and I say "Oh crap",
This limerick all was a lie.

I am frantically yelling, "Two! Two!"
You agree to trade and then do.
You were wondering where
Someone's hiding the bear
And now it's residing with you.

The price I've set on this tile
Is just right to keep in my isle.
But you then buy it
And just to deny it
To me: now my coins are a pile.

There's no way you can possibly pay
The amount I'm handing your way.
But then you match
And my tile you snatch.

With the cards in your tableau combined,
You make goods that you then get to grind
Into victory points
’Til the endgame anoints
As the winner the symbol-est mind.

There is a game known as Stones of Fate
You can win tarot cards from your mate
By placing a stone
In a power zone
That looks like a sideways figure eight

There once was a game called Dominion
It's pretty good in my opinion
You play and buy cards
Like moats or courtyards
And win with the help of a minion

There once was a girl named Seoni
Who recharged her spells quite easily
When faced with a foe
She sets them aglow
And lights them up like a Christmas Tree
