Last month we wrote about The League of Extraordinary Gamers [LEGA] -- an underground gaming society that was rumored to meet somewhere in the Atlanta greater metropolitan area.

The League of Extraordinary Gamers - Board Gaming's Most Secretive Secret Society

Shortly after posting the aforementioned LEGA expose', we were contacted by Arkham Horror / Defenders of the Realm designer Richard Launius, whom many believe to be the LEGA Grand Poobah. Richard offered us a deal -- in exchange for our promise to never disclose the LEGA's secret meeting location, we would be given unfettered, photo journalistic access to All-Things-LEGA. We would be able to photograph and publish some of the most dark and hideous imagery the board gaming industry has ever seen.

For minors under the age of 18 (21 in Florida and Pennsylvania) or those of you with weak stomachs, we implore you to close your internet browsers now. What follows below is truly disturbing...

Young LEGA member taking his first hit of Urban Sprawl's highly addictive new-game smell. What sort of immoral slime would not only permit, but actually encourage such an addiction? For goodness sakes, LEGA, please think of our children.

LEGA flagellation rituals involve going through all 25 of Urban Sprawl's set up steps -- over and over and over again. Those who survive to actually play this new Chad Jensen title are rewarded with a truly wonderful gaming experience.

The LEGA's mysterious 3-Finger Wave is always given with the left hand and appears to be a sign of friendship. The LEGA Single Finger Gesture -- not pictured, but given with either hand (or both simultaneously) -- was directed my way frequently and did not seem to convey a similarly warm, friendly feeling.

"Baden-Head Groupies" are a unique sect of the LEGA. They are fully devoted to the LEGA, but follow the path of The Great Chili Cookoff designer Dan Baden rather than the LEGA Grand Poobah.
