At Victory Point Games' offices, we have a habit of turning some of our game titles into songs, CRUEL NECESSITY being one of them. So I couldn't help but flesh out that song a bit.
Cruel Necessity (sung to the tune of "The Bear Necessities"):
Look for the Cruel Necessity
The simple Cruel Necessity
A game about the English Civil Wars
Let's play some Cruel Necessity
To stop the four Royalist armies
That bring that Cruel Necessity to life
Wherever you wander onto a track,
Prepare your defenses for an attack
There's enemies to the left and right
Who won't go down without a fight
When you reveal that next Event,
And realize your units are spent,
Then find out that you're screwed!
The Cruel Necessity, the King that's playing you
Yeah, he's playing you!
