Stupidest Game Ever?

Today I’m going to break this down into two categories: board games and video games.

I was recently invited to a game night for anyone who lived under the bridge. I liked some of the games a lot. I’m a fan of Go, Chess, Backgammon, and can stand the occasional game of Monopoly.

I can’t stand Scrabble, although I don’t think it’s the stupidest game ever. You’ve got to be able to spell and strategize–nothing stupid about that.

My vote for stupidest game has got to be the Twilight Saga New Moon Movie Board Game. I’m ashamed to say that I did play though a couple of complete games, but I didn’t enjoy it.

On the video game front, I’m going to choose Custer’s Revenge for the Atari 2600. I’m not going to link to it, it doesn’t deserve any extra attention. But go take a look at it and you’ll see what I mean.

et tu, D2?

  1. Well, the fact that New Moon comes later in the series, thus suggesting that this is potentially not the only Twilight board game out there, I find more horrifying than words can adequately describe.

    Bop It! is fun for a while, but then it gets really annoying. Kind of like Simon used to.

    Some of the Scene It? games are ridiculously specific (not to beat a dead horse), but like, for example, Scene It? The Twilight Saga, Star Trek Scene It?, or Harry Potter Scene It? No one needs to be watching that much angsty teenage vampire/Klingon/overgrown child-wizard-appearing-nude-with-a-horse-in-a-thinly-veiled-attempt-to-establish-some-street-cred-as-a-legitimate-actor action.

    Chess is fine, but I’m no good. Monopoly is okay, but takes too long. Risk, also fun, also long.

    , now there’s a good game.

    And I’d really like to get my hands on Outburst, Bible Edition.

  2. If you’ve never played Pretty, Pretty Princess, you have missed out on a world of fun.

    The last time I played risk with friends, the lady-folk decided to be nice to one another and we ended up ruling the board. The men were furious that it turned in to Risk Tea Party instead of a real game. I just can’t convince myself to care enough to play for keeps.

    But back to PPP. Really, you’ve got to try it.
