Perhaps it's a bit morbid but I had a passing thought about what would be a way for a life long gamer to continue to play a game with, or make laugh, another gamer who might be visiting their grave (or looking at their urn of ashes, etc.)after they're deceased.

*The list is not meant to promote any religion or religious belief (or lack of) but rather to poke a little fun at death. Please don't put any comments up about your views on the afterlife (or lack of) on this list as there are many other places you can put such comments. shake

For those that don't know, there is a game called the metagame that has only one rule, the rule is that if you think of the metagame you lose. You automatically start playing the metagame again as soon as you stop thinking about it. This may be the only game that non-gamers are better at than gamers. By reading this you have just lost the metagame (sorry.)

How about a tombstone that has a chess board carved into the top of it so that players can sit to either side of (but not on) the grave and play the game over the grave.

I've always liked Penn & Teller's cenotaph at Forest Lawn Mortuary. (I also like their excuse for having a cenotaph there: since a cenotaph is a grave marker for someone whose body isn't there, and hey, their bodies aren't there, so why not?)

It has their names and an image of a 3 of Clubs on it, along with the words "Is this your card?" It's supposed to be a delayed payoff for a supposedly botched card trick you do with your friends, in which you earlier messed up trying to guess that their picked card was the 3 of Clubs. Then when you later visit Forest Lawn, you "accidentally" find their marker and amaze your friends. Cheers abound.

I'd think that a gamer could set up this same trick on their tombstone, or modify it a bit to make it tied more directly to a favorite game, and have a good friend be an accomplice to set up the payoff.
