I just got in trouble with my "boss" because of the Evony game advertisement. He walked by and said "What the?" seeing the big breasted women there. When I told him it was a board game site he did not believe me. I might need adblock at work from now on.....

Yep, know the feeling. I was looking at BGG on my laptop while sitting on the sofa watching TV - my wife walked by and said "What are you looking at!?!" - I said "Small World" and she said "Doesn't look like it to me!"

Or better yet donate.

Have full control of whether you see ads or not.

Your wife sounds like a keeper, Andy. That made me laugh...

Remember a few weeks ago when it was called "Civony"?

Yeah, the Evony ads are pretty tacky. A woman with her breasts partially hanging out, her eyes closed wearing an expression that looks like someone's Giving her The Business...the "Play now, My Lord" caption...

I can see how one would get the wrong impression at a glance.

Use FireFox and use the addon AdBlock Plus. Both are free.

I was just about to say... this ad is a little too far. I mean, why stop there?

I guess she's giving new meaning to "the game was re-skinned".

HEY-OH!

I thought this thread was about a expansion card... Dominion: Envoy Promo Card.

Well, it does have a tag line that reads: "bored at office, school, or home..."

Ad with low cut dress or not, any of my bosses would have written me up for being on non-job related internet sites while I was supposed to be working.

I am at work and am very glad that I haven't had one of my bosses walk up behind me when she is on the screen.

I shouldn't need to see it, it's definitely not being marketed to me anyway!

FYI, we've repeated blocked this ad, however they've repeated changed the URL. We've tried to escalate to AdSense that these guys are employing shady practices, but no response. It's extremely frustrating on our end of things too (and I like women's breasts).

Never mind the ridiculous attempts to entice people with fake boobs - I wouldn't trust an advertiser that touts "play unnoticeably on your browser" if you're "bored at work or school"! Where I work that would certainly see you with plenty of free time on your hands!

Remember those adds with the same cgi lady? Had a sword pointed at her and it said something like "Save the Princess!" It was Evony or Civony or something...

It got to the point were I was muttering under my breath "Stab the bitch and be done with it already!"
