This is either an awesome, awesome name or really, really bad, maybe it is awesomely bad? Either way you can call it CMDC3K for short, that just sort of rolls of the tongue. We have a weakness for crazy Asian games and just couldn't pass this one up. It is a quick/easy game for 2-3 players that pits your skill against the other player(s) in a 10-15 minute battle. The rules are simple, the game play is quick but mastery can take a lifetime.
Is this the worst or best name for a game you've ever heard? Either way we hope it is memorable!
CDMC 3K is a Dexterity Challenge Game where players fight in an epic battle of Chopstick Dexterity to be the ultimate victor in battle!
About the Game
Several years ago, the Lower House of Japanese Parliament was very alarmed by the incursion of metal eating utensils in Japan. Increased use of fork and knife among youth resulted in decreased skill in using chopsticks! Determined to reverse the trend, the Lower House worked with Fujita Television Concern to produce a new game show that promoted dexterity in the usage of chopsticks, with cash prizes. They called it: Chopstick Dexterity Mega Challenge 3000!
This show, with host actor Kazuo Yomura, quickly became very popular among all ages, spawning comic book series, merchandise, and, best of all, this home board game version! Now test your chopstick skill in a thrilling contest at an affordable price. Grasp shapes with chopsticks to win pieces. Whoever obtains the most pieces wins! Maybe you can best all opponents, win the Final Victory Stage, and become Chopstick Grandmaster too!*
* This is totally made up, don't believe a word of it, but what a great story all the same!
Tom Vasel's Thoughts on the game...
"I hate chopsticks, yet find this hilariously funny."
"It's a dexterity game that, even though I'm horrifyingly bad at, is one that has generated a lot of fun both with teenagers and adults and can be extremely funny and enjoyable just to watch!"
"If you're looking for a silly dexterity game to bring out at parties, or something to use with teenagers that will produced laughs and excitement, then Chopstick Dexterity MegaChallenge 3000 is a safe bet - I've never seen it played without laughter included." -Tom Vasel, The Dice Tower

Aww man I really wanted to back this but because it's Mayday games I am disinclined to do so.
Looks great though!
