I have seen several geeklists related to interesting bits, nicknamed bits, favorite bits, least favorite bits, bits that look like food, etc. But I haven't seen one specifically dealing with bits that look like other things. This is the place for those.

Buddhas = owls.

This was the inspiration for this list. I was playing Samurai with my wife. After the second game, my 2 year old came along and wanted to play. I cleared off the map and let him place the pieces where he wanted. He placed all the Buddhas first. Then he looked over them all and said "who, who, who, who." He looked at me and said "owls".

I see his point. They do look a lot like owls.

Then my other son placed one of the hats on an owl's head. My 2 year old then said "hat, birthday, surprise!" and smiled. So apparently, these aren't just regular owls, but party owls.

I-beams = beds.

Lay the I-beams down on their sides and they look like beds. The ends are unusually large proportionate to the length. One time while playing my son started placing army men and small plastic knights on the fallen beams. "Sleeping" he said. Another good point, they did look like beds.

Gold = butterscotch.

An oft-mentioned obvious one, but they do make me hungry.

Sauron = bad kitty.

Now after watching Kiki's Delivery Service, I think of black cats speaking with the voice of Phil Hartman. So Sauron must sound like Phil Hartman and act like Lionel Hutz or actor Troy McClure. I just don't see Sauron in the same light anymore.

Pineapple = cheese.

Pizza was born in Italy, where nbody would allow pineapple on a pizza. So our mind is forced to see it as cheese instead, eve if real cheese for that would be a soft ball of white mozzarella.

Sorry to drag the tone down, but the piece on the left of this image is the best example of this - suffice to say that this game has been renamed 'Nobbin the Nob' in our house...

We call all the spices in Goa something else. Sure, I suppose technically they look like the unrefined spince, but except for ginger or cinnamon, we rarely see them in an unprocessed form. So for our games of Goa, the spices become:

Cloves: Clubs
Nutmeg: Hamburgers
Pepper: Peas
Ginger: Cauliflower
Cinnamon: Churros

Amphorae = carrots

Some of the reviewers called the wooden amphorae carrots, so the name has stuck in our household.

Personally, when I first saw them I thought they looked more like bronze spear heads. They are too flat for amphorae.

On the right of this picture is a cactus. (Is it true that Carassonne is a town in Arizona?)
