It's been a long while since I've read any good board game related Haiku poetry. Sometimes you're just in the mood, you know?

So present us with your favorite game, or any game really, and create a Haiku for the readers of BGG to read and relax to.

For those not in the know, a Haiku is made up of three lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the third has 5 syllables.

...actually this pretty much doubles as a session report with the base game integrated with Alliance.

Got mah pump shotgun
Wanna head to the mansion
Not enough ammo

Weapons are ready
Wesker is in the mansion
Max HP reduced

Card combos show up
Draw a bloody red barrel
Dead yet once again

Got my sniper gun
Forget I draw from below
Pull Wesker once more

Go double explore
Got too much mansion to chew
Dead yet once again

Dead four times one game
Max HP down to zero
Man, Josh Stone sucks
