Way out west there was this game I wanna tell ya about. Goes by the name of Crossbows and Catapults. At least that was the handle its loving designers gave it, but it never had much use for it. See, this Crossbows and Catapults, it called itself "The Bomb". Now, "Bomb" - there's a name no game would self-apply where I come from. But then there was a lot about the Bomb that didn't make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where it lived, likewise. But then again, maybe that's why I found the place so darned interestin'.
See, they call BoardGameGeek.com the "City Of Trolls"; but I didn't find it to be that, exactly. But I'll allow it as there are some nice folks there. 'Course I ain't never been to London, and I ain't never seen France. And I ain't never seen no queen in her damned undies, so the feller says. But I'll tell you what - after seeing BoardGameGeek.com, and this here story I'm about to unfold, well, I guess I seen somethin' every bit as stupefyin' as you'd seen in any of them other places. And in English, too.
So I can die with a smile on my face, without feelin' like the good Lord gypped me. Now this here story I'm about to unfold took place in the early '80s - just about the time of our conflict with TSR and Dungeons and Dragons. I only mention it because sometimes there's a game... I won't say a hero, 'cause, what's a hero? Sometimes, there's a game. And I'm talkin' about the Bomb here - the Bomb from BoardGameGeek.com. Sometimes, there's a game, well, it's the game for its time and place. It fits right in there. And that's the Bomb.
The Bomb, from BoardGameGeek.com. And even if it's a lazy game - and the Bomb was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in all of BoardGameGeel.com County, which would place it high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide. Sometimes there's a game, sometimes, there's a game… Well, I lost my train of thought here. But... aw, hell. I've done introduced it enough...
