Twister is the ultimate game. The playing surface is "bigger then the box", takes all the parties of your College years to master, and has many pictures for enjoyable watching. Why need other game when Twister in house? Takes lifetime to get bored, not need other games! No more argument on drinking night — we play Twister! Same as always!

Twister requires careful positioning, strategy, and all these circles in different colours are impressive to display. The whole family can enjoy. Even old people can spin the wheel, giving them new purpose in life. Also, it could lead to drunk players walking outside in their underwear, offending the neighbors

Twister is very inclusive. No matter what your country of origin, or politics, you can play! It has positional strategy for Wargamers, worker placement for Eurogames afficionados, and some randomness for devoted Ameritrashers. Something for everyone! Even Liberal Arts major can play, provided they are not colour blind to begin with!

Twister is very ecomonical. Although the box contains only a cheap plastic surface and some crappily injected parts, it replaces all other games in your house. Want to bend your body in random positions? Twister! Want to drop your sweat on your friends? Twister! Want to put your genitalia close to other people, with many meaningful decisions? Twister!

So, why are you not playing Twister right now? It's the ultimate game!

Twister also helps you develop social skills, and encourages you to get in contact with other peoples inners self, which, depending with whom you play may be thoroughly enjoyable.

It also has no dice or cards to blame when you lose.

Err, have you seen my wargamer buddies?

Given the choice between a game of Twister with said crew, and gouging out my own eyes with a variable speed Dremel tool stuck on the slow setting, I'm going to ask you to pass me the sanding bit every time.

To its credit, the rules are brief and tight and it features point-to-point movement.

I started one job a few weeks before Christmas (many years ago). Within two weeks, it was the Christmas party, and I was playing Twister with the girls in the typing pool... which was, mostly, a good thing...

I'm a fan of well done maps, and I have to say that of all the wargames I've ever seen, Twister's map is one of the worst. Gaudy colors, big white lines around the areas on the map that make the halos on first Edition maps of LnL's Band of Heroes look positively artistic, and to top it all off I have to have a table that is the size of a rug to put it on. Now I expect that with a monster wargame, in a game the size of Twister, its' just unnecessary.

Lastly, No CRT!!!

As an would-be armchair general, I like to sit at a cozy and save gaming table.
Twister is far too dangerous, there have been injuries, you know...
