Sigh.

This reminds me of when I was 5 and my mother made me dress up for Sunday School. And not just any Sunday School.... I'm talking West Texas Lutheran Sunday School with a Fire & Brimstone preacher who could produce actual flames from his mouth. And me, having to wear a little clip-on bow tie and an itchy white shirt and pants that felt like they were made from cardboard.

That's how wearing this new avatar feels. Thanks to too_close for ruining my reputation on BGG.

But I'm only gonna wear it till New Years... then I'll pick one of the other, better, entries and proudly display the new DW avatar. Maybe even change avatars from time to time. But for now I have to send a shitty game to Diane's worser half.

And you guys get to pick.

Since the Trippinator was unavailable to help me with doing this in a poll (He said something about handcuffs, a high speed chase and a van full of contraband Platypus testicles) I'll do this the old fashioned way. The games I have selected are:

Monkeys on the Moon

VS System - Batman vs Joker

Towers in Time CCG

Rocketmen CSG

The Simpsons CCG

Dragon War


One of the games is actually fairly highly rated, but personally I'd never be caught dead playing it. One is middle-of-the-road rated and the rest are in the cellar. I'd like to see the designer get the crappiest of them all, but you get to choose.

If you'll wait until I add each of the games as an image post and then thumb the one you'd like to see this horrible person receive then I can wrap this up long about Christmas Eve and send him his new abomination before New Year's Eve.

And yes, the winner gets the 25GG too... and if I have any left I'll give some to the creators of whatever avatar I use after I shed this atrocity.

One sealed booster box of this POS. Not sure if there are rules inside. Don't care either.

The starters pictured. Both sealed. Sure to be hours of fun for the semi-intelligent.

Uhm, in order for it to be "ruined", don't you have to have a good reputation first?!

Oh, uh, considering you are unemployed and all, allow me to be totally selfless and magnanimous (yeah, that's it!) and say that you shouldn't feel the need to actually ship any of those shi... crap... uhm, "wonderful", uh, "games" to us. Yeah, that's the ticket, save your money and spend it on yourself! I think you'll need a least one more drink if you're really going to keep that Avatar until January!

No way Diane... you guys are getting the game. As far as the expense, being unemployed doesn't mean being broke. Trust me, I can afford to ship a game, even to a foreign country like Minnesota.

Truthfully, I do kind of like the avatar and I'm no fan of animated avatars... but it has this eerie, mesmerizing quality to it... I can't quite explain it... but, well, dig it... it's hip.

So, are you people gonna vote? Or what?

Looks like Paul might be getting the best of the lot.... of course I haven't voted yet. Nor has Paul. Nor had Diane. I see thumbs from a number of you but no votes.

I was rooting for the Towers in Time CCG, but I guess I can use it for kindling if he doesn't get it.

They've been mesmerized into inaction by your awesome new Avatar.

Hey this isn't Chicago! Paul and I don't want to "influence" the voting. Your Avatar is doing enough of that already.

Monkeys on the Moon is a fun game! A good prize for making such a crappy avatar!

Finally... Towers in Time got a vote. I was worried I was going to have to order a recount and then cast my Uber-Vote to swing the election the way I want.

Frankly, I don't put much stock in Monkeys on the Moon being any good, most of the ratings I saw come from people who tend to obsess over anything branded as a Euro. The little constructible space ship game might be the diamond in the rough here.

But I feel burdened by Towers in Time... so vote for that one people!

If it's a "Minnesota-style" recount, then we're sure not to receive the game until 2010, if even then!

I own it and have played it and it's a pretty good abstract/pasty-theme. If Paul "wins" this, it will go to Matthew-the-monkey-lover.** The constructable spaceship one would go over well with him too.

HEY!! NO influencing the vote!! sauron

**As that could apply to a number of people, to clarify, I mean 10 year old neighbor kid Matthew, not BGG Admin Matthew.
