The group (skelebone, jpact, Ryno8, and chaddyboy_2000) was all ready for a rousing game of Caylus. As is customary in our group, this meant first playing a round of Shocking Roulette to determine the starting player!

We all nervously placed our fingers into our respective torture chambers, knowing of the pain that this little device is capable of inflicting on the winner. We let the device know that all four of us would be participating in this bout, and then hit start. The device replied with frantically paced flashing red lights and a beeping sound, reminding me of a tiny spaceship sent to Earth to annoy us, and to then inflict pain on us. Of course, this isn't an entirely realistic analogy, as I've never seen a spaceship that I'd want to, or even be able to, stick my finger in.

As the beeping continued, I thought about the hot ham n' cheese with curly fries I had eaten at the beginning of the game night. It was good, really good. In fact, I wish I had another one right now. However, I soon snapped out of my dreams of ham n' cheese, realizing I mustn't let the panging in my stomach distract me from the intense game at hand. Falling asleep at the wheel of a Shocking Roulette game could be dangerous, if not fatal.

The beeping slowed. The shock was getting closer.

I could tell that Ryan was still wallowing over his loss in Battling Tops earlier in the game session. Tricky Nicky never had a chance. He was smacked around like a redneck's wife; a very skinny wife that spins really fast. If only he had pulled harder. If only he had experimented with a different winding technique. If only he didn't suck so much at Battling Tops! Visions of his defeat kept replaying through his mind.

The beeping and the accompanying red lights slowed further. We all knew that one of us was going to suffer in just a few seconds.

Beads of sweat began to form on Scott's forehead. I couldn't tell whether it was nerves or whether he was overheating. Perhaps he had eaten a chili pepper beforehand. I really wasn't sure. Nah, I'm pretty sure it was the nerves. How can you blame him? You'd be sweating too if you were about to have your finger shocked with the power of three AAA batteries on high setting.

The beeping slowed even further. We all knew that the tiny aliens inside had readied the shocker, and that one of us was going to get it any moment now. Beep......... beep......... beep......... beep......... beep.

Oh, come on. Shock one of us already! The game was just toying with us now.

Suddenly, Jim jerked his finger back in pain and victory! It was over. He had been able to keep his mind focused the entire game. He hadn't been thinking about what he had eaten for dinner. He hadn't been fretting over past defeats. He hadn't been worrying about the pain. He was a man on a mission, and he was rewarded as electricity surged into his pointer finger.

With his finger still tingling, Jim began the game of Caylus, while the rest of us were left wondering what might have been.

What can I say, I was in the zone. Sure I went on to convincingly destroy all of you at Caylus. Some might say that I was on top of my game all night long. Some might say that momentum was on my side. But as a witness to the actual events (this is not a dramatization) I believe that the three of you could not recover from the Shocking Roulette loss.

My victory was quick. Decisive. You were all left demoralized and confused. My people have commemorated the event in Haiku:


Finger Samurai
sits; Moonbeams search and transcend
Flawless victory


I may actually be the best SR player in the world.

That's pretty much the stupidest haiku I've ever heard besides that one I saw last week.

Hey man, I didn't write it. I just happens to be about me. When it comes to SR, I am legendary.

I only feigned confusion, so as to confuse the rest of you in Caylus... sadly, in a classic Catch 22, I became confused when I saw little confusion.

I was personally sent reeling from my victory in our Crokinole Starting match of SR... after that SRSPS (Shocking Roulette Starting Player Selector), my endorphins were at a level to high for me to concentrate fully on my fingernail to puck physics....

ahem...

Electric fingers
Gratuitous Fist Pumping
None for me or Scott

Well crap, I feel as if I have to write a haiku about Shocking Roulette now as well.

My groin is aglow!
I should have used my finger,
and not my penis.

This made me snort aloud at work, and I got strange looks from co-workers. Thanks a lot.

Too dangerous. I bought a high security, fire-proof safe to keep mine in.

I'm waiting for it to actually shoot up past Caylus for the number 2 spot.

It does, after all, have an universal appeal... Virtually everyone can play it correctly the first time through... and to this date I have not seen a need for a FAQ.

That's cheating. The shock won't transmit through the rubber suit.

Bright, brilliant colors are to be seen everywhere, the stones and pigments undimmed by the passage of decades. The floor of the corridor is a colorful mosaic of stone, with a distinct, winding path of red tiles about 2' wide.

I loved it! It was better than Cats. I am going to read it again and again. Or should I say...

Oh Boy! I loved it!
It was much better than Cats,
...I'll read it again...

Oh. Poor Chad.

I mean, those holes to put your finger in are pretty small...
