"Your not even trying to help me" ? Comment made by a friend of a friend tba. This one is truly a classic in my mind. Generally reserved for when your in front and the other players don't seem to be making moves which optimize your position.

"I'll be using the 4 indigo opening" Don Smith our comedian. Used to describe some of Gary Baziuks or my complex textbook analysis of games and opening strategies.

"Used the Voice on him"

"Pull the lever, Craig, you know you want to!" (Craig resisting taking the
Craftsman in Puerto Rico)

"It's a broken combo"

Famous Last Words: "A chimp couldn't lose if they build three Big
Buildings in Puerto Rico."

"Jodoin Schuffle" ? used to describe randomizing your card play by not looking at the cards at all. Versatile line to be used when it doesn't matter which card you play as the outcome will be to close to call, when you're simply not sure what to play, when the game is so luck driven there is no strategy, or when you are so far back you no longer care.

"Your signals in Mu and Mehr only indicate to me that you have no clue what you're doing!"

Unfortunately for me my signalling left some doubt as to my intentions. My gameplay didn't help either.

"I'll go read War and Peace while Gary and Craig do their turns."

"It's a 90 minute game. 60 minutes for Craig - 30 minutes for the other four of us."

rumor has it I'm a little slower at more than one game. I prefer calculatingly decisive.

On losing wheat (due to a tournament) to my cousin: "No wheat--my people will starve!"

The next turn, losing bricks for the same reason: "No bricks, my people will starve!"

But we won't talk about him and his sheep.

"You say you've found a way to make bricks? BRILLIANT!"

Suffice to say, I enjoy those Guinness commercial a bit too much. Also, this is probably why I can't get into games of this anymore.
