The board game industry is just a front for the Plano Box and Zip-loc companies?

What if the Plano Box people were not people but rather a race of aliens locked in a shadow war with itself- one obsessive compulsive faction that just really wants people to be more organized and another, less ocd faction that really just enjoys bothering the other faction by altering the Plano Box dimensions so that they don't quite fit the components and by promoting the release of expansions?

What if the wooden cubes contain tiny brain control devices that one day cause us to rise up and show the Ameritrashers what optimize REALLY means?

What if physical objects took political labeling to heart with relation to the viewer- thus, whatever is to the left of you wants you to share with you and whatever items are to your right want nothing to do with you, one shoe wants to get cozy, they other wants you to starve?

What if Plano boxes were used as tackle boxes and zip lock bags were used to hold the fillets of the fish you caught?

Well that tears it: the boardgame industry is a front for the fish, who want you to use up all the tackle boxes in the world containing tiny wooden blocks, and thus bankrupt the fishing industry.

It all makes sense now.

What if the ZipLock company breeds millions of Plano boxes in large, dark buildings, and then debones them to make bags?

What if the Plano boxes are made of ground up halibut bones and, thus, the intraspecial spirit of the halibut has become defuse and trapped in a sort material limbo net encompassing all of gamingdom?

. . . what if - and that's a really big 'IF' - those very same Plano boxes and zip lock bags were being used for (gasp!) SCRAP-BOOKING?????

We, as human boardgame players, are the corpreal aspect of an infinate number of universal vibrations. An infinate number of corresponding sentient entities to us, need us as means of playing boardgames as they are unable to in thier complicated omnipotent state.
Any questions?

Yeah, Unable and Omnipotent don't really go together, do they?

edit: The meeples organizing mass relocations of communist socks under the cover of night seems more likely.

Omnipotent means that they know everything, but it does not mean that they can do everything (such as play board games... thus the need for us). Hope that helps.

What if those labels saying that games have small parts are actually a complicated ruse perpetuated by infants who simply don't like board games and/or McDonalds toys?

What if when playing a game, the goal is to win, but it is the goal that is important, not the winning?

Don't forget that when you store your games on the side, the plano box and ziplocs are essential things to avoid a mess when you open your box.
