But I was looking for a game where an enclosed short young lady, a perfect class representative, a slightly elder classy maid, a normal high school girl with the aura of a hamster, among others, try to win an unlucky-looking girl-faced butler with a debt of about 170 million yen.

I guess I'll have to pass on this one.

It's probably 160 million yen which is $1.6 million, if that helps.

It's a game based on the anime series Hayate the Combat Butler. The title might also be a parody of how certain Japanese light novel series have overly long names.

I'm a bit disappointed they didn't mention the talking white tiger.

Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.

Please stop posing in these forums it's ruining the aesthetic of the BGG front page The huge glob of text in the game forums widget is hypnotizing.

How the heck did you find this game?

From the description, it is a re-implementation of the children's card game, 'Old Maid'.

It is. It's a card game as old as time, with some special affects slapped on. Ayu-ya usually does that.

The human race, to which so many of my readers belong, has been playing at children's games from the beginning, and will probably do it till the end, which is a nuisance for the few people who grow up. - GKC

Oh no. I misclicked on the title of the game and not the thread title, and now my recently viewed list is twice as long.


We need to get this game on the hotlist. devil

I saw this game on the Hottness and clicked on it because of its crazy long title. Not being able to find any real information about it anywhere, I proclaimed - "I don't get it."

Is it a card game?

the game description wrote:
A card deck consisting of some sever on eight different types of cards. There is an even number of cards except for the "butler" card. All cards are dealt, and players take turns drawing one card at random from the previous player. If any pair is formed, it's discarded and the special effect of that card (if any) happens. If a player runs out of cards, he's out. The player with the last "butler" card left in hand wins.

I'm going out on a limb here, but I'd say yes, it is a card game.
