Some of my improv comedy circle are gamers, and some of my gaming circle are improv comedians. (You got chocolate in my peanut butter!)

Somehow, the concept of deleting the first letter of a game title to create a new game came up... and a bunch of us sat around brainstorming what kind of games would result.

Some examples below.

I'm not rich with GG, but if other people add results that make me LOL, I'll award some of my stash to the best of them.

(P.S. my first geek list EVAR. Be gentle.)

***DOUBLE EDIT*** I tried alphabetizing this because people requested it but I have to admit I can't *stand* it like that... no way to go check all the new items at once. Sorry!

***EDIT*** Now Alphabetized by popular demand. Thank you fine Australian ladies

Earlier someone posted this game as "000 Places to See Before You Die" (the game for the jaded traveler who has already been everywhere) but drawing on p55carroll's observation about 7 Wonders:

No. Just "Wonders"

Hmm ... I dunno. The GeekList title says removing the first letter, so it'd be 7 Onders.




I realized that this game was about a racier race.

The current champion of this game is Wilt Chamberlain who claims an unprecedented 20 victories. (Although there is some doubt about his record-keeping about his record-holding.)


Of all the games I should be able to find Agnes holding, why do I have to settle for such a boring picture of this one?

mbmbmbmb
In this agility/coordination game players compete to put their playing piece in the appropriate place at the right time. Everyone goes at the same time and the first player to get it right wins.

The twist is that you may use your paddle to work on your own lap, or you may use it to slap your opponent's paddle off someone else's. As you can imagine, this game can get quite chaotic.

Edited for the critics.
