I was reading an article on gunaxin.com and thought this would make a nice geek list. Let us see what Gunaxin writes and so you can comment on it. Have done a quick check here at BGG, but so fat I found no review of any of the following games.

From Gunaxin:
"Board games have become one of the last resorts for entertainment. In a world full of naked ladies, PlayStations and underground street-fighting circuits, it seems unlikely that anyone old enough to form an opinion that matters would want to bust out some dice and a clunky piece of cardboard. But someday you’re going to be at a social gathering when suddenly the power goes out. From the darkness the host appears like a phantom, holding candlesticks in one hand and Clue Jr. in the other.

If you ever find yourself in such a grim situation then you need to know the enemy. Which games are playable? Which ones lead only to tears? Compiling a comprehensive list of terrible board games would take at least three life times to complete. Instead, I present you with the Final Four of horrible entertainment.
"

The first game on the list is the KISS Dice Drinking Game (which I tried to submit into the BGG Database - declined for the obvious reason that this game is only meant to make you drunk). So I agree with Gunaxin who say the following about this game:
"Fact: if you ever feel like you need KISS to tell you where, how fast and to what guitar solo you should drink to, you’re an alcoholic."

So here follow the other three games, and maybe you can add some more!

Gunaxin comments:
As a cash grab, board games are a commonly used option. As a board game, Full House is an abortion. Players drive around their neighborhood trying to collect all the members of the Tanner family into one car before returning home for a heart warming moment or earnest life lesson. This would be a perfectly sensible thing to do, ignoring that the person-to-seat belt ratio in that car is going to be, like, two-to-one. To seal the escape from your own personal Hell, certain squares along the board force you to read a Joey Joke Card. Armed with the handsome visage of Dave Coulier, these cards capture the essence of what is to be Uncle Joey by being physically painful to read in front of people you care about. According to popular urban legend, reading a Joey Joke Card backwards summons the Elder God Nodens, so look out for that.

Ice’s career peaked with Ice Ice Baby and I’m pretty sure his manager knew it. What else could explain the existence of a Vanilla Ice board game? Much like M. C. Hammer, Ice made a terrifying leap into the world of electronic rap games. Even more like Hammer, Ice’s career has been flat-lining for the past sixteen or so years, perhaps explaining the lack of electronic rap games on your local K-Mart’s shelf.

The game is played by players completing rhymes around the board. After completing a set of rhymes, whoever played them must rap a set of lyrics based on them to the included beat-box microphone thing. Assuming you make it this far, this game play continues until someone completes the last rhyme on the board and raps the whole damn thing. If marketed towards adults this could have been an excellent drinking game, with each player downing a shot whenever they felt a creeping sense of regret. You win if you’re the last player to die of alcohol poisoning.

Gunaxin comments:
I don’t know who invented the concept of the racing board game but I can tell you that he or she should be punched right in the mouth.

Racing games play out the same way: you generate a number somehow and move that many spaces. Then, like all good racers, you stop moving and allow your opponent to do the same. This continues until one of the players realizes they’re wasting their lives, choosing to spend their precious time in the world of the living pushing oddly-shaped pieces of plastic around a board while making engine noises. No one wins. The Dukes of Hazzard breaks this down even further by providing the player with two tracks, one labled “fast” and the other “slow.” The slower track supposedly provides less danger from road blocks, bear attacks and Boss Hogg, but this only further degenerates from the concept of reckless driving and law breaking that the series tried so hard to establish for years. If it weren’t for the lovely portrait of Sorrell Booke gracing the box art, the only redeeming factor this game would have is that the box isn’t filled with venomous cobras.

First of all this will probably take ages... so not good at a party and I have heard there were serious fights because of this game - even broken relationships I have heard!

So let me add this game to the list!
