[RANT]

I just saw the game in my FLGS and compared to the gamebox front posted here on the geek and the gamebox front I saw the dancing woman on the box front had her rear end covered with a veil. Now tell me what kind of crap is that. It is a travesty of justice. I want to include a little porn in my game play every once in awhile.

It is like what is depicted on this card.



[RANT CONCLUDED]

Oh well, game still looks cool.

Only if it's female. If it's male, I have the exact opposite reaction.

Actually, I surprise myself, after comparing the two pictures, I prefer the censored version!

No, it is not awesome, it is perfectly illustrating the caption of the card.
Nudity fits the theme and the title.
It does not work with the blue veil. And it does not matter for me is some prude people are shouting "scandal! we will burn in the flames of hell", when they say nothing against - for example - war games.

Better teach the pleasures of sex than the horrors of death.

Do you really want to suggest that dancing slave girls teach us about the pleasures of sex?

My question is - my goodness those are some BIG asses! It's appears the artist was inspired by King Magazine.

No, but it is a comment to the other two threads.

And remember that in the past, the lines to define something beautiful were different.

In a period when caresties could happen easily, a full body was admirable.

No, the card deck only contains the censored card, but the uncensored card is thrown in for free if you buy the game in the right places!

Just out of curiosity, how do you tell the difference? I mean, sure the person in question has long hair, but that doesn't mean it isn't a man.

We could say that the shoulders-waist-hip ratio is typically female more than male.

Of course, if it really is a pretty boy we're looking at, it would fit right in with the Sulla-theme. blush

If you gave it a sci-fi re-theme, the guy on the throne could be Jabba the Hut! yuk

Despite the "Art" or "Lack of Art", I have a simple solution--just skip the game. I played this at BGG con, and I found that there were much more enjoyable games to burn 2 hours on.


Well, then just play something with guys jumping out of airplanes = you'll be much happier! angry

I just opened my copy, and as expected, I have the "censored" version. The components in general are very nice quality, but I'd like to know who I have to bribe to get the other version of the card?

Where did you buy your copy? If you got the Rio Grande version, that would explain it.

Yes, I got the Rio Grande version. I had already read the comments here and figured I'd get the version of the card I did. It just seemed strange to me that the puritanical version seemed necessary. The components are really nice, and I have no doubt I'll enjoy the game, as I have the other Ystari products.

I have always found depictions of the female form to be attractive, but not necessarily sexual. Seeing a bare behind does not rouse me to fits of lust, but gives me a deep appreciation of the wonders of female pulchritude. I prefer the uncensored card, but really, both cards are quite nice.

Of course you do, "Randy Peek".

I do too for the record, even though I don't have a cool inuendo-type name....lol
