Charles Brace Darrow’s Contribution To The World: Monopoly

Tuesday, 26 December 2017

Darrow’s “Monopoly” made him a millionaire, but it wasn’t completely original. It was an adaptation of “The Landlord’s Game” patented over three decades earlier by Elizabeth J. Magie:

 

Elizabeth Phllips (nee Magie) renewed her patent in 1924.

How To Win At Hoseface

Wednesday, 26 January 2011

Oh, man, this is a game I’d fight to get in on.  I don’t care if it was manufactured and sold by Hasbro, Milton Bradley, Ohio Art or Whammo, the pure psychological strategy of this simple game is awesome.

First step is to show up to the party early. Then get the ante to a decent level, and once the pot is there, that’s when you talk about how you practiced with the set earlier. Of course you don’t remember which color you practiced with, as you start sniffling and hacking a bit. (Complaining about a slight fever helps.) Then start the game immediately, and without hesitation, hock up a loogie into the trash can.

Gentlemen’s rules say anyone who quits forfeits the pot. INSTANT WIN!

Another Great Gift Idea: Sick Japanese Dog With Infectious Saliva Game!

Thursday, 11 December 2008

Okay, um, lessee.  You open the sickly dog’s skull, stick his tongue to the roof of his mouth and pour in a bunch of green slime with little tidbits in it.  Now the sinuses are loaded. Close the head, and doggy drools infected pus with candies that you try to retrieve with electrified tweezers before they land on his tongue.

But here’s the excellent twist:  If you pick the wrong tidbit, you are awarded with 110V of Japanese current coursing through your metacarpals.  Hilarity ensues as you roll on the floor convulsing uncontrollably.  Everyone’s a loser in this game, not just you!

It still doesn’t beat “Pie Face” as our all-time favorite strategy game, but it’s a close second.

[Found at RGS, with many more to choose from. Nice archive of gifts here.]
