So I am a long time visitor to this site but I just now registered so I figure what better way to kick off then with this nifty list my friends and I came up with. It mostly applies to video games but further looking shows it can be applied to any games. Well most of them.

1: Thou Shalt Not Tread Farther Than Thine Friend. (Let your buddy get farther before you go and figure out the whole story on the game he owns.)

2:First Buy, First Play (You bought it you get to be the first or in the first play.)

3:Thou Shalt Not Overwrite Thine Friends Game. (Don't save over their file you jerk.)

4:Thou Shalt Not Borrow Longer Than Thine Friend Owned. (Give it back before next year, they just got it yesterday.)

5:Thou Shalt Not MANHANDLE Thine Friends Games (This includes getting food and soot on it as well.)

6:Story is Sacred, Reveal it Not (WHAT SNAKES A CLONE????)

7:First Play Must Suffer The Story Lame Or Not (Don't Skip the Cut Scenes.)

8:Girlfriend/Boyfriend Shall Not Handle With Out Permission (They could break it you never know?)

9: NEVER!!!! Leave Thine Friends Games Out Of The Case. (Clean it up after you are done.)

10:Thou Shalt Not Loan Thine Friends Games. (They lent it to you, not your cousins uncles friend.)

11:Owner Shall Opt To Be First Player (He who owns the system/game gets first choice of player/character/etc.)

12:Thou Shalt Not Trade Thine Friends Games.(You don't own, Don't sell it.)

13:If You Lose Thine Friends Game Thou Shall Pay Equal Or More Of What Thine Friend Payed For Another (If the collectors edition is now $300 you better fork it over.)

14:Thou Shalt Respect Thine Friends And Thous Collectors Edition. (You/your friend payed extra for it so it deserves extra care.)

15:Thou Shall Not Leave Thine Friend Hanging. (Go back and save him forget the treasure.)

16:Thou Shalt Respect Thine Friends Organization (It's Retrograde Alphabetical according to Color and Shape???)

17:Thou Shalt Not Interrupt Thine Friends Gaming Story.(Let them tell it you weren't even there!)

18:Thou Shalt Not Let Thine Friend Buy Garbage. (Sure Barbie horse adventure is great!!!)

19:Thou Shalt Not Be A Fanboy!!! (Do it your own home like the rest of us, your bugging us.)

20: No S.L.A.G.s (See above but add extra caffine and annoying pills)

side note (S.L.A.G. super lame anime girl/guy) I love anime as much as the next guy but please don't ruin bleach for me by arguing that chad and ichigo are a better couple than rukia and kon.

Well thats it friends read and enjoy, or insult, or revere what ever works for you.

I believe in this rule up until a point...I have a friend who's a chronic non-game-finisher and I tried to be patient, but after he didn't beat Wind Waker for over a year I took matters into my own hands. He and his girlfriend went away on vacation and I helped myself to a Gannon beat down.

Then a couple years later they asked me to house sit for them and feed their cats yet again, only this time he decides to be a smartass and hides Twilight Princess from me. It's been years now and he still hasn't completed that one either...hell, I think he barely made it out of the starting village.

That's a pretty weird name for a cat.

These seem to be based on video games.

Some of these are just totally alien concepts to board games.

Your cousin's uncle's friend could potential be your dad's friend, which might be your neighbor, which could also be the exact friend who lent the game to you. :O
