If anyone ever reads the humor site Cracked .com, there is an article up today on "The 9 Most Insane Board Games of All Time", written by my wife and largely researched here. She wishes is known that anything that sounds remotely negative about gaming (Including a dig at Meeples) was added later by the editors.

It was decent, but tame. There's plenty of crazy around this joint.

Should have been titled "Most Insane Sounding But Ultimately Disappointing Games." A true list of "insane" games could have included stuff like Titty Grab and SPANC: Space Pirate Amazon Ninja Catgirls.

No The Campaign for North Africa?

Playing Time 60000 minutes

Pretty insane to me.

That "Morron Terror" isn't German. It's Swedish. Means "Morning terror" with the catchy subtitle "Featuring mom on a roll". Hence why the game is about to get dressed for school.

Seems like a winner.

Yes, the title of the article could have been better. Her initial title was more along the lines of "When the box art doesn't fit the game", but it got changed by editorial. There wasn't anything about "insane" in her original version.

And the Cracked editors have clearly never played The Campaign for North Africa...

Wow that's crazy. The lead in paragraph clearly fits the original title.
