Pathetic as I am, I find myself constantly seduced by good board game cover art. Seeing the cover art allows me to imagine all the fun I will have playing the game, only to discover once again after receiving it that I really can't create more free time (none of my representatives will listen to my 30 hour day or my 8 day week ideas).

In all fairness, I did read reviews for all these games on the geek, so they are not completely based on the cover art.

That imp looks like he is having too much fun. Perhaps I can have as much fun if I had a sealed copy of this sitting on my shelf.

After receiving my copy, I can confidently say that the fun level in my life increases every time I spy the sealed copy.

Showed up on Tanga, and that guy taking a bullet to the hat and cigar looked like he was having too much fun. I just closed my eyes, sitting in my cubicle in front of a computer at work and imagined how much fun it would be if I too could take a bullet to the cigar and hat.

This one I got not strictly for the cover art, but for the cute little sheep figures that came with it. Until this day, I have no idea why the sheep appealed to me so much, a topic of discussion I might have to delve into with my psychiatrist.

The only explanation I've been able to come up with so far is that I was a sheep herder in a previous life. I wonder if my previous life sheep herder guy would be amazed at the coding skills he never knew he had.

I don't know, pointing the guns at each other seemed like too much fun and allowed me to overlook the fact that I am seldom in a room with more than three people, let alone more than three people that actually want to play a game.

One of these days I am going to go to the Home Depot and pay 5 day laborers to play this game with me.

That mouse with the cheese did it for me and allowed me to imagine that I would have great fun with this game in six years, when my still unborn son meets the minimum age requirement.

I still have 4 years to go, so I still think this was a wise purchase, what with inflation and all. I am waiting for the price on this to go out a couple of dollars to feel vindicated.

Saw this on the shelf at my FLGS, loved the box, went next door to the library to log on to the geek and make sure it wasn't completely panned, and came back to buy it. And it's actually turned into one of my group's favorite medium-weight games, so pretty much win all around!

I actually didn't buy this one myself, but the person who got it for me as a gift has openly admitted to having bought it entirely for the awesome box art. Not a bad game, either.
