If you haven't heard of Fantasy Geekball then you can check out the main geeklist (with links to history) -> here

It looks as though someone has delusions of grandeur and is trying to start a revolution against the Thrift State; it is the State Team, the Abstract Strategy Stars (ASS), vs. Team Love Boat. While I love the Captain's sense of humor to upset the status quo, this is nothing more than a Thrift Store Irritant Squad (TSIS) insurgency tactic and is not as comical as it appears. Do the right thing and Support the State! Here's the basic analysis...

Zendo vs. Do the Urkel

Do the what?

No do some zen and vote for Zendo! It sets the rules and we'll let this silly game do just that, be silly...

Blokus vs. Monkey Auto Races

This is perhaps the TSIS's most attractive offering. But let's face it this is not a match for our goalie Blokus; no monkey has gotten by him, perhaps an ape, but not a monkey.

Ingenious vs. Pig Tickler

Awwww isn't that cute.... You can tickle Pigs! The State's genius of a game blows this game(? - with a name like that are we sure..?) away... Don't be stupid, vote smart - vote State - vote Ingenious.

Torres vs. Gigglepants

So your friends are looking across YOUR game shelves... Do you really want them to see a game like Gigglepants? Or would you rather have a game like Torres sitting there? I thought so... Torres deserves your vote!

Chess vs. Feeley Meeley

So if you have an inkling to vote for this "feeling" game, you must have a molester gene... I mean it sounds creepy, not fun. Go check out the box cover if you want to see what I mean. Vote for your State' team Center, Chess!

Axiom vs. Snifty Snakes

So which would you rather do? Be a goofball and try and move objects with your nose OR use your brain? you don't need to respond, just vote!

Yinsh vs. Turtle Butt

OK, does it smell like turtle poo in here or is it my competitor's game? Yep, I thought so... Turtle Butt. Sounds like what a six year old would call his sister. Vote for the State's Star Forward Yinsh!

As always, when the State Team wins, supporting Thrift Citizens win! See teh Support the State geeklist for details!

- First Citizen

PS: Good luck team Love Boat!

I can't help to wonder if "Dear Leader" is voting to kick his countryman's game off the isle... It's a pretty darn good game!

You mean Sunda to Sahel? I like that game - certainly don't want it voted off!

No you're the Turtle Butt!

Seriously though your analysis cracked me up! Funny stuff. And for the record, I would be very proud to have Gigglepants on my shelf.

Seems you, Wendell and I are the only team managers that care to comment on these lists... Hmmmm... Perhaps we're the only team managers taht care about their TEAM, but wait, does Dear Leader care about anyone? Not enough food, but we can go on building missiles... That sounds about right.

Sure, the Dear Leader cares about making quality cinema. He even kidnaps foreigners to help make those movies. (I am not making this up.)

Team Love Boat - sorry to sink your ship - purely self defense, but as you move into the next competition, rest assured the State will raise your ship, make the repairs, and arm your vessel well against the remaining contests you shall face.
