Alright! Here’s your chance to win a copy of Eclipse! That’s right Eclipse! Check it out on BGG…

All you have to do is write original lyrics to one of the Christmas Songs listed below with the theme of gaming in some way shape or form! We’re going to pick the best set of lyrics and Tony will sing the winning song for you (and the rest of us will back him up if it adds something to the song). You at least need to write a verse and a chorus (but you can write more if you’re inspired).

POST THE LYRICS IN THIS THREAD!
(If you're embarrassed by what you write and dont want it public, that's cool, you can GeekMail it to me if you want)

The deadline for the contest is January 2nd and we’ll release the winning song sometime in January (I know, I know it’s a little late for Christmas but we’re giving you Eclipse so pipe down).

You’ll hear your name announced and song performed on the show and we’ll send you Geekmail on Board Game Geek and you have to reply with your name and shipping address.

Here are the songs you have to choose from…

Frosty The Snowman

Feliz Navidad

Jingle Bells

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

White Christmas

Winter Wonderland

To Jingle Bells...

On a dungeon crawl, with weapons in our hands,
O'er the Pit we go slashing all the way,

Wizard's spells go Zing, crushing all our foes,
What fun it is to raid and rush this Dungeon thing tonight!

Ameritrash, Ameritrash rolling lots of dice!
Oh what fun it is to ride this thematic romp tonight!

Ameritrash, Ameritrash rolling lots of dice!
Oh what fun it is to ride this thematic romp tonight!

Quiet Arkham night, and mythos in the air,
Through the gates we go, for fear of End of Days,

Grand old ones still sleep, but threaten to awake,
We better find an Elder Sign and shut this thing tonight!

Ameritrash, Ameritrash, rolling lots of dice!
Oh what fun it is to ride this thematic romp tonight!

Ameritrash, Ameritrash rolling lots of dice!
Oh what fun it is to ride this thematic romp tonight!
Hey!!!

To the tunes of "white Christmas"

I'm, dreaming of a game convention
where all my gamer friends can go
all geek chic tables
and agricola stables
and cries of triumph around the vendor show

I'm dreaming of a round of 1830
where ever corporation can grow
and the bank will always overflow
while the players never play dirty

I'm dreaming of a Game of Thrones
and Battle star would be nice too
where we can become friends and enemies too
and play until weary too the bone.

To the tunes of Jingle Bells:

Waiting all the time,
Will it now be on?
Jamie, Brian, Chris and Tony,
Get that podcast done!

Jamie takes the lead,
Chris, he buys them all,
Tony pouting in the corner,
Man, I have a ball!

Jamie, Brian, Chris and Tony, oh what have you done?
Made of me a gaming addict,
Can’t get no other fun, oh!

Jamie, Brian, Chris and Tony, oh what have you done?
Kids are starving back at home,
And it has just begun!

Brian always calm,
Sticks to Euro fare,
Tony has me painting figures that never will see play

Gotta get that game,
Rushing out to buy,
Bank will claim the house now soon, but I still need that TIE, oh!

Jamie, Brian, Chris and Tony, oh what have you done?
Made of me a gaming addict,
Can’t get no other fun, oh!

Jamie, Brian, Chris and Tony, oh what have you done?
Kids are starving back at home,
And it has just begun!

To "Jingle Bells"

Sleeping through the show
'Til news time does arrive
Hand him a Euro
And then he'll come alive.
Cheebies on his mind
Driving him insane
Big and beady eyes
Boring through his brain.

Oh, Tony T., Tony T.
Please wake yourself up
Oh what fun it is to hear
You respond with a "What?"
Tony T., Tony T.
Please wake yourself up
Oh what fun it is to hear
You respond with a "What?"

Smelling Magic cards
And iPad surfing too
Are just examples of
His favorite things to do.
Juicy gold awaits
In large piles it sits
Don't let Tony get it
Coz he's chomping at the bits.

Oh, Tony T., Tony T.
Please wake yourself up
Oh what fun it is to hear
You respond with a "What?"
Tony T., Tony T.
Please wake yourself up
Oh what fun it is to hear
You respond with a "What?"

To the tune of Winter Wonderland

Teaching rules, are you listening?
"Drop that meeple!" Patience dwindling
A nerd-iful sight,
Gone cardboard tonight.
Heavy Euros in a newbie wonderland.

Gone away are the battles,
Here to stay is trading cattle
A man with an ox,
Frowns at us from the box,
Heavy Euros in a newbie wonderland.

On the table we can build a tower,
Out of wooden cubes that stand for flour

You'll say: Wood for sheep?
I'll say: No dude,
And that joke isn't funny anymore
It's really just rude.

Later on, we'll conspire,
Scheme and plan, and inquire
"Do we have to reveal
VP cards that we steal?"
Heavy Euros in a newbie wonderland.

On the the table we are laying tiles
And putting all the resources in piles
There aren't any dice around for miles
We don't care for theme or minis or Ameritrash style.

When drawing chits, ain't it thrilling,
to pretend that you're distilling
Brewing a beer, or playing auctioneer
Heavy Euros in a newbie wonderland.

Slay that thing, are you listenin'
Make it rain with the bleedin'
A beautiful sight,
It's murder tonight.
Walking in a chibi's intestines.

Gone away, it is butchered
Big ole' heads are dismembered
A beautiful sight,
It's murder tonight.
Walking in a chibi's intestines.

You can choose to do it in Pathfinder,
tactics and the gridded maps for you.

I'll use FATE to run it through the grinder,
Cuz new school games are kind of what I do

Wrap its head in barbwire
On a pike by the fire
A beautiful sight,
It's murder tonight.
Walking in a chibi's intestines.

You may like to do it in Warhammer...
(Interruption to the song) Excuse me. Excuse me. Might I have the microphone? Yes. My name is Edwin Bingham, Esquire and I'm the solicitor for Games Workshop. Due to pending litigation that my client is pursuing against the writer of this song for the illegal use of the word "Warhammer", the remainder of this song has been redacted until further notice. Good day.

You didn't list Rudolph The Red-Nose Reindeer. I cheated and wrote for that song. If it is disqualified so be it. I had fun writing it.

You know Yahtzee and Battleship, Fluxx and Munchkin
Cosmic Encounter and Dungeons and Dragons.
But do you recall?
The worst board game of them all?

Monopoly's a crappy board game
Its old age sure shows,
And if you ever played it,
You would even say it blows.
All of my fellow gamers
Still laugh and call it names;
They never let poor Monopoly
Be played in convention games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Aunty came to say,
Monopoly is out of sight
Could we play a game tonight?

Then all the gamers groaned
Turned around as if to flee
Aunty don't you know that Monopoly
Is the worst game in history!!

(edits are for multiple spelling errors found one at a time since I can't proof read for crap)

Sung to White Christmas:

I'm schemin' for a great game
Unlike the rounds i've lost before
Where the juicy gold glistens,
And the meeples listen
To hear wheelin' and dealin' on the board.

I'm schemin' for a great game
With every dice I roll tonight
May your odds diminish and die!
And may all your victory points be mine.

I'm schemin' for a great game
With every dice I roll tonight
May your odds diminish and die!
And may all your victory points be mine.

Neither is White Christmas or Frosty

Should be covered under parody though and considered okay.

Correct, Matt. We're safe under the parody laws. And even if we weren't... uhhh... whatever. They can send me a cease and desist and I'll stop. Until then, we're just having fun and certainly not making a profit.

White Christmas...

Not the happy Christmas theme expected but my gaming life in general...

I'm dreaming of a wild game night
As I walk through my empty house
Got my coffee brewin
And noodles stewin
While I sit, and paint a mini mouse.. (Mice n mystics baby!)

I'm dreaming of a wild game night
I can't believe I'm all alone
It's the weekend and I search through my phone
Seems everyone's too busy staying home..

I'm dreaming of a wild game night
With cards and tokens flowing free
And my gamer buds pleading
For a follow up reading
Of rules they claim I failed to see..

I'm dreaming of a wild game night
A closet full of endless fun
Yet I fear solitaire must suffice
Looks like its just you an me D-Day Dice..

To Feliz Navidad

Verse 1

Should I take a loan?
Should I get the stone?
Should I build a farm
To feed my people or let them starve?

Should I ship my goods?
Sell fish or the wood?
I need energy
To buy a sawmill or joinery.

(Chorus: in response)

There’s no time to keep analyzing
Your sluggish moves are so paralyzing.
It’s been all night and we’re all still waiting
For you, to take your turn!

Verse 2

Should I choose explore?
Offer peace? Declare war?
Research could be next.
I could reveal another hex.

I better think twice
On the odds of the dice.
If I want to win,
I’ll need some paper and a pen.

(Chorus: in response)

There’s no time to keep analyzing.
Your sluggish moves are so paralyzing.
It’s been all night and we’re all still waiting
For you, to take your turn!

Set to "Winter Wonderland"

Christmas Boardgame Binge

Grandpa’s of, the opinion
The we should all, Play Dominion
A nd so it begins
Everyone wins
Going on a Christmas Boardgame binge

Later on the desire
To fight a raging fire
So now’s a good point
To bust out “Flashpoint”
Continuing a Christmas Boardgame binge

The dice, and chits, and beers have all be flowing
It’s past 2am and maybe I should sleep
But my family says that “sleep’s for losers
Sit down and play Lords of Waterdeep”



Pretty soon, Mom puts in a bid
To play, some Powergrid.
I chug down some Java
Then play some La Havre
Deep inside a Christmas Boardgame Binge


I blacked out a bit during Galaxy Truckers
I don’t remember assembling my ship
I surrounded by a bunch of crazy …. people
And I feel my sanity starting to slip.

In a state, of delirium
A bust out, Twilight Imperium
I know that I’m doomed, my mind’s been consumed
Forever lost inside a Christmas Boardgame Binge

Sung to Sleigh Ride

I see your brain cells stiffining
You have no stinkin' clue
C'mon it's fifteen minutes now what are you planing to do?
Someone else killed your meeple now you are crying "Boo-Hoo"
C'mon on and make a move or I'll slap you down with my shoe.

Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up lets go
You're moving so slow
I hear my toenails starting to grow

Pick a piece, pick a space, put it down it's fine
There's no need to whine
You're doing crap-ola right now apart from wasting all my time.

Your cheeks are fat and ugly and now I'm starting to see
That every person here is getting as antsy as me
Analysis paralasyis turned your brain to goo
C'mon and make a move, or I'll beat you down with my shoe

There's an empty space on the board right there, please just play
It'll be perfect spot for you to earn some pay
You'll be gaining the points you need to trade for wooden blocks
At the market where you'll sell your farmer's crops
Crops! Crops! Crops!

There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy
I'll feel it when you force me to punch you in the eye
It'll nearly be like an upper cut, by Tyson or Ali
This uppercut can be avoided just play before I count to three
Don't pretent I am kidding or I will also bite your left knee

I see your hand still fidgiting
You are lost in thought
C'mon it twenty minutes now, I am quite distraught.
Inside the boredoms mounting and friends are calling "OH MY GOD, MOVE!" [yelled loud, out of meter]
C'mon and make a move or I'll bust you up with my shoe.

Gonna freak, gonna freak, gonna freak out soon
What's up with this loon?
My head will pop like a baloon.

[Sung loud and angry]
That's it, I'm done, no more for me
It's red that I see

[Yelling, out of meter, as music plays, fades as Tony chases off AP guy ]
SEE THIS SHOE. I WARNED YOU ABOUT IT. COME BACK HERE. HEY! GET OVER HERE!

[Somone else at table as music fades]
So, it's what, Green's turn?
