Tons of Fun

This weekend, at my weekly game night, I played a game I hadn't played in a long, long time. It's called Oasis, and my copy hasn't been played in well over three years -- when I was living in Virginia several moves ago.

I suppose I could do a review of the game, but that wasn't really what I set out to say here. Instead, I wanted to share this chart on the game box that caught my attention:

The manufacturers rated the game on a scale of 1 to 10 for luck, strategy, and fun.


Unsurprisingly, they gave the game a 10 for fun. Because who's gonna say about their own game, "you know, this is really only about a 9... it's just missing that last special something." Or better still, "are you kidding me, this game's a 1!" (Though that's what the creators of Zombies should say.)

No, no...on the Zombies box there would be a graph for:

Screwing your neighbor: 8

Days this game will last: 9

Number of your friends you will want to kill before the end of the game: ALL OF THEM AND WHY WON'T THEY LET ME END THIS #*$(#*@@! GAME I DON'T EVEN WANNA WIN ANYMORE LET ME OUT AAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

For a second, I got Zombies confused with Maul of America and was all ready to defend it. Then I realized my mistake.

But BoardGameGeek rates Maul lower than Zombies so maybe I should try it out.
