What if your favorite TV show used BGG in its plot? How would BGG be used as a plot element?

This is meant to be a fun parody of TV and BGG and not meant to offend anyone. Please feel free to add any of your own ideas.

It all started with Aldie's appearance on Oprah:

OPRAH: We have a wonderful young man named Scott Alden with us today who helped co-found an internet site called "BoardGameGeek." He goes by the handle name of "Aldie." So, Aldie, what is your site about?

ALDIE: It started out as a small place for people to just go and talk about boardgaming, you know? It has grown into a huge, international community. We have descriptions of boardgames, user reviews, session reports, geeklists (which are lists of similar themed games, etc.). It is a wonderful community for anyone who has an interest in boardgames.

OPRAH: Now by boardgames you don't mean video games, right?

ALDIE: That's right, Oprah. We don't discuss video or computer games.

OPRAH: What do you do to avoid offensive remarks toward, say, women?

ALDIE: For the most part we have great users, including many females, but in a free exchange of ideas you are going to get a few bad apples. We screen out offensive posts and our users pretty much police themselves on these things. There are even great forum discussions about what is offensive and we have some very vocal female users who stand up for themselves. It's a great place to meet and talk with other people who enjoy the boardgaming hobby!

OPRAH: Thank you for being on the show today, Aldie! It sounds like a great place to go to online! And now audience, if you look under your seats you will find a gift certificate good for a free microbadge on BGG. Just log onto the site and get your free microbadge! Good luck with the site, Aldie!

ALDIE: Thank you, Oprah!

The Reality shows jumped on the bandwagon to make shows based on the new popular pastime started by the Oprah appearance.

WHILE YOU WERE OUT: Mr Skeletor is the handle of a popular user on the now HUGELY popular internet site BoardgameGeek, or BGG as it is affectionately called. While he was a away at a convention we got a call from his lady friend to do a makeover of his game room. First we took all his old game collection and donated it to a local thrift store to make room for our changes. I hear there is a Geeklist about someone finding, and purchasing, his games at a great bargain. But we replaced all those old games with brand new copies of the latest popular games such as Monopoly, Sorry, and Uno! We can't wait to see his reaction!

Then episodic television jumped on the bandwagon.

24

KEIFER SUTHERLAND (at production meeting): I know we've stretched the limits trying to get people to believe that I can cross to the other side of LA in 10 minutes, that I never have to eat or go to the bathroom, and that a mountain lion can menace my daughter. But we are NEVER going to get the audience to believe that someone's first game of Arkham Horror only took 24 hours!

PRODUCER: What if we put in a flashback that showed you playing several solo sessions to learn the rules?

BONES: Obviously BGG is a site that fits into the typical anthropological need for community. They even have special nicknames for each other like grognards and eurogamers to divide their community even further. This comes from an instinct for socialization with one's own kind as well as the need to dehuminize those who feel differently than you. And we don't even need to discuss their egocentric attempts at fantasizing about world domination or violence.

BOOTH: You know something? You really need to get la-. Never mind!

AMERICAN GLADIATORS

HULK HOGAN: Up next our challengers play the Gladiators in a game called "Werewolf" where a couple of hidden players are going to be werewolves and the rest are villagers trying to figure out who the werewolvwa are before they are all devoured, which really means they'll be tossed into water. I'll bet "Wolf" has an advantage in THIS event!

REFEREE: Villagers ready?!

(a few low grunts)

REFEREE: Werewolves ready?!

TITAN AND HELLGA: Ready! Oh crap...

CSI

BRASS: Apparently these geeks go to big parties called "Cons" and they split off into groups with similar fetishes. "Grognards" seem to be into S&M and violent roleplay. Eurogamers like to engage in something called "multi-player solotaire." I think you know what THAT means! And then there are the Ameritrash, which seem to be into toys that they call "bits."

GRISSOM: Not every hobby and interest is a sexual fetish, Brass.

BRASS: It is on THIS show!

MULDER: Do you realize, Scully, that if you add just one letter to Aldies name you get ALL DIE? This means BGG is obviously involved in the military industrial complex conspiracy!

SCULLY: Don't you mean the government conspiracy that changes every week because the writers are making it up as they go along? The military industrial complex conspiracy is from the movie "JFK."

MULDER: Speaking of Oliver Stone and conspiracies, do you realize, Scully, that the Vietnam war is in EVERY movie Oliver Stone has even been involved with? There are even flower children in "Conan the Barbarian."

SCULLY: Perhaps you should save that for the "BGG Movie Parody GeekList!"
