I'm not talking about games like Toire o Yogoshita nowa Dareda? or Doggie Doo, which are actually themed around poop - I am talking about the abstract mechanism best described by "pooping stuff onto the board". That stuff is usually not actual poop.

I think I first heard this phrasing in a Shut Up & Sit Down review - I don't remember the game anymore, but they've used it several times. Whenever I teach a game where you move around, leaving some cubes or chits behind, or take an action that deposits stuff onto the board, I always find myself referring to that as "pooping out some X".

I've realized that a surprising number of games that I really enjoy use some variant of this mechanism.

As you move your Secret Agents around the board, they poop out intel cubes onto every location you leave. Other players may collect these intel cubes (hopefully with a pooper scooper) to gain special ability tiles.

When you kill a monster, its final act is to poop out a coin onto the board. I guess what they said about your bowels emptying when you die really is true.

Moving your merchant around the board requires pooping out some assistant cubes, but you do go back and clean up after yourself later.

This isn't a spoiler, since it's the basic mechanism introduced in the prologue game, but instead of curing diseases, you run around the world pooping out supply crates.

I wasn't sure if I should count Mancala-style games, but they seem close enough. I'm more skeptical about Trajan making the list because it's pooping things out onto a personal board, and not a shared board... that just doesn't feel the same.

When activated, Basestars poop out Raiders. This is exactly the terminology I learned.

...because sometimes it can be both. Wombats wander the board pooping out cubes, which are also thematically poop.

This is the quintessential pooping-out-cubes-that-actually-represent-poop game. I was waiting for someone else to add it, actually, since I liked my BSG example better

Here you're pooping out actual poop: your animals make poop, and if there isn't anything there to absorb it, you put a little brown cube in the pen.
