Those of you who watch Parks and Recreation all know the recent episode where Ben makes an incomprehensible boardgame called "The Cones of Dunshire".

Well wouldn't you know, fellow Chit Chatter...

This should go into BGG General, or BGG Community, with a more specific thread subject (to get people to read it).

Heh, I watched that episode last night and almost peed myself laughing when he was explaining the game. I think that's what people hear when I'm trying to explain a game...

I would buy a "Cones of Dunshire Fan" microbadge immediately.

Edit: That article is great. When I originally saw the episode I imagined the design process in my head, and was jealous; sounds like it was a lot of fun!

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

For some reason I thought it wasn't sufficiently over the top. Though I loved: "You roll three dice to determine how many dice you roll."

I watched that episode last night. Man, that was great. If I ever design a dice game, I'm totally stealing the "roll three dice to determine how many dice you roll" bit.

GW's Warmaster had something like that for damage from one of the dwarf weapons, IIRC. It did (2d6)d6 damage on a hit.

Yes, the roll 3 dice... and the cone "sleeves" were my favorite bits. Very funny!
