Games

Cheap Ass No More

While we were out today spending our money at more respectable, reputable businesses, we also stopped by our local gaming store. Apparently, I've been out of the loop on a couple of things… Not only are there even more Munchkin games and expansions since the last time I looked (I bought Munchkin Cthulhu), but it seems like a real game company (Titanic Games) has released a "real" version of the famous Cheapass Game, Kill Doctor Lucky. I didn't get that, but I also ended up buying The Dungeon of Dorukan, the Order of the Stick board game. We haven't tried the latter yet, but Q has already beat me at Munchkin Cthulhu. I found several cards particularly amusing, because they were reminiscent of things my group had said or done back when we played Call of Cthulhu in college; also, the card with brass knuckles had them inscribed with the words "Hate" and "More Hate" (see picture of GWIII below):
