At WBC, there are wargames, there are abstracts, there are brainburning Euoro games, and then, well....

There are some silly things out there just for some laughs and some goofy fun. Some of the games were not on the schedule, but are silly and light enough to mention them here.

The WBC version is complete with a refereee (NO WHINING!) screamers, a commentator and more beer than a Wisconsin brewery. I went to the playoffs, but I didn't care. AT the end, I had a hard time finding my car; I was so drunk I was looking for it in the hotel.

This game is rated very low, and there is a reason: it's not really a game. All people do is roll two dice and hope for high numbers, then read a chart. There is one decision on two holes: play it safe or go for a harder shot.

However, the people at WBC pull out all the stops: the final is played with gigantic fuzzy dice. At the finals it was very exciting, one spectator commented "this is very close, the game will all come down to a die roll)

Guess you had to be there...

I hope they bring $Greed back, and still keep Cant Stop.

I had a blast playing $Greed. We were all on the floor when I crapped out very close to the win, then the other person close to winning rolled $Greed then rolled one more time and crapped out. This one was just fun.

I believe this was a demo. I was just watching as people cracked up as they got each other pregnant, and became each others friend (not necesarily in that order.)

Note: This game has a "BSW" card where you gain friends but lose relationships...realistic??

I saw this being played a couple of times. Not a great game, just funny hearing gamers ask stuff like: "how many actions do I use to bitchslap my ho?"

People looking silly with cards on their foreheads. I played my first night there and was threatened with cameras and pictures!
