I did some searching, but couldn't find the exact reason for its lack of appearance. It's not really a game per say, but it is still considered a board game.

As I said in the last thread on this topic, why don't you ask the board?

The US issued patent says it's a board game.

They even made a PINK version for younger 'girls', although with their penchant for 'inanity' as it were, then I'd imagine the 'board' will only constantly spell out:

Devil worship? You mean the Devil is actually making this game work?
I really have to buy a copy now, to see how it happens!!!

P.S: BTW, IMHO the Devil, like God, is just a figment of our human imaginations, you know... Nice make-believe stories that makes us sleep better at night...

Why do you have to win? Does a game require a winner? Is that in the definition of a game?

Looks like someone missed the sarcasm train.

Here's a clue: If it was posted by HiveGod, it is not serious.

I know of games even more silly and dull. At least in most bingos you can win some prizes...

We could also list Tarot, Palm Reading, and 'sitting in a dark basement with a decapitated rabbit, lighting candles in a pentagram.'

Personally, I would vote for: "do not list as a game"

In my own experience, a decapited skunk works much better, if you can stand the smell that is... As for the Pentagram, use oil-based paint when making it, or silver dust, if you can: acrylic paint seems to attract some unwanted lesser planes deamons­... And you don't want these guys ruining your Sabbath's Day Sexual Orgies, do you? shake

Totally. I have the original Hans Im Gluck version of the decapitated rabbit thing, and I'd like to be able to list it for trade.

So games are not an activity?

BTW, I'm not trolling. I don't necessarily agree that a game, as we here understand it, requires a winner for it to be a game. Perhaps a game requires contest, or competition, but not necessarily a winner. If you lose at Pandemic, is the game the winner? The cardboard and cubes are the winner? I would say you lost to the game, not that the game won.

A game is a system, in which players take part in an artificial conflict defined by rules that results in a quantifiable outcome. - Katie Salen & Eric Zimmerman in "Rules of Play"
