Apparently Little Ceasars -- which alleges that what it sells is pizza -- has signed an agreement with Hasbro to build its games into the boxes. "Hasbro will put some of the company's board games on pizza boxes. 9 million such boxes will be created with versions of Memory (remember what pizza tastes like?) Scrabble Jr. (how many points does "d-o-m-i-n-o-s" earn me?) and Trivial Pursuit (What year was Pizza Hut founded?) as well as a coupon good at the Hasbro online shop." Quote from http://www.adjab.com/2006/11/07/little-caesars-co-brands-wit...

I'm still waiting for someone to get it right and include
or maybe Settler's made out of pizzas...

There actually WAS a German pizza company that did include some sort of pencil and paper version of Settlers with its product... I think this was two years ago or so.

Now, what would be COOL is if Mayfair or Hasborg included a coupon for a freebie pizza in its' copies of Settlers or Heroscape, or whatever.

As well as a few free handiwipes.

Oh yeah, gamers are known for being such pizza snobs.cool What's the matter? Little Ceaser's tomatoes aren't sun dried? Their cheese isn't New Zealand goat?

A pizza is gone in a few minutes, but a game lasts a lifetime!

I honestly didn't know Little Caesar's still existed. I haven't seen one in years.

Once one of them reopened near us late last year, we knew it was time to move.

Even as starving students back in college, we had our limits. Dominoes was basically the cut off of acceptable take out / delivery. Little Sleazers was considered so far down the ladder that store brand frozen pizza was preferable. I knew some gamers that took their chances on the "Pizza!Pizza! two at one low price" offer, few of them were actually able to finish the second pizza (many didn't even start the second, most threw part / all of it away). Fewer still ordered there again.

WHOA WHOA WHOA.

Sometimes, you can't afford that pricey TWOFER deal from Dominoes!

7 bucks for a large pepperoni and an order of crazy bread? Sign me up.

You've got to be kidding. Dominoes is the absolute worst, bottom of the barrel pizza, far worse than Little Caesars. It's preferable--barely--to cardboard slathered with grease. And I mean barely. Did you eat at a Little Caesars run by martians or something? Their pizza is hardly terrific, but it is at least edible.

I dunno that Little Caesar's and Dominos are so bad. When I went to college, we ate pizza from GROG'S.

I gotta back Spoons here -- Little Caesars is just OK, but Dominoes is garbage.

Then again, I haven't had either one in years, so maybe they've changed. . .

Funny, but I used to work for both pizza places. The Domino's job was pretty good. Little Caesars a bit less so.

And yes, there are some Little Caesars still around. Not in my area, tho.

Prepare to have your husband stolen in the night by a large male suspect.


And to any future naysayers, seriously, Cesars is just CHEAP. I know its "you get what you pay for", but when you can pitch in 3.50 and get half a pizza and crazy bread? Tahts a deal. And I have at my disposal

Mr. Gattis
CiCis
Pizza Hut
Dominoes
Papa Johns

And random other establishments that are just local. Now that I think about it, I don't understand HOW we have local pizza places other than franchises. I guess college towns can support just about anything.

Except a good game store.

Now how did that work.
