You have promised a wonderful game to many investors, but due to circumstances beyond your control, you have lost all the fund and now the only way, in your mind, to stave off angry investors is to come up with creative excuses.

Here is your chance to show off your creativity and earn some gold.

How can you expect us to come with anything new?!? All the excuses, even beyond our wildest imaginations, have already been used... shake

Snowden's release of secret government documents means that we have to redo the whole game.

The NSA encrypted our image server which contained all the artwork, so we have to recreate the artwork from scratch.

Thank you very much for your recent inquiry. Our company's CEO, B. Madoff, has been surprisingly busy in prison and we do apologize. Our hope is to address all your concerns upon receipt of the indictment you promised to deliver by federal agent.

At this time of family joy and thanksgiving, Mr. Madoff would like to share some of the spirit of this holiday season.

"They call me either Uncle Bernie or Mr. Madoff. I can't walk anywhere without someone shouting their greetings and encouragement, to keep my spirit up. It's really quite sweet, how concerned everyone is about my well being, including the staff ... It's much safer here than walking the streets of New York."

Unfortunately, reading out loud section 6.6.6 of the rules accidentally summoned a demon who consumed the rules. Once we have conducted an exorcism, we will have to recreate the rules. This may take a while.

Also, porosity.

Our Chinese manufacturer is no longer able to manufacture our game because our game was banned in China for endangering national security and causing cultural aggression.
