You know, I could see some sort of clever bilingual word game where you have mixed Latin and Cyrillic characters, and one player is trying to score English words and the other Russian. Individual characters like B, C, and P can be used in either language for their corresponding letter!

Does GMT know, and does anyone read Chinese well enough to order one of those? Because that... That is its own awesome kind of terrible.

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

Parker Brother might have something to say about this as well.

Also this topic led me to:

http://pikimal.com/board-game/vs/boggle/twilight-struggle

Which suggested Twilight Struggle over Boggle to me.

Anyone up for a game of "D-Day scrabble", or how about "Zombie bananagram"
Any body else with any good ridiculous game mixes?

If you asked me to make the weirdest game combo, I never in a million years have come up with something weirder than Twilight Struggle and Boggle.

Impressive.

Pasted from the description by following the link:
Quote:
晨昏对峙是一个二人游戏,它模拟了前苏联和美国之间长达45年的冷战状态。整个世界都变成了这两个巨无霸国家为了让世界成为以他们各自意识形态和生活方式为发展方向而战斗的舞台。游戏从二战后两个超级强权在欧洲的废墟之中争夺开始,到1989年苏联解体结束,只有美国依然矗立...

I followed the link and read the above description. It is definitely describing Twilight Struggle, but renaming it to make it less obvious. shakegulp

Now if someone can mash these two together, I think it would sell pretty well.

It is not real. It is a mashup of cover art I made for the geek list mentioned above.
