Extra Life Event Public Service Announcement


… Salami?  Time!  Its time.  Hello fellow travelers on the Starship Omega.  This is your temporary captain, The Dude, speaking.  If you look out the left cabin window you’ll see Glorbax 3, a lovely world where pizza grows on trees like the mighty orange and team building exercises carry a triple death sentence.  On the right side you’ll see the vast nothingness of space that forces you to realize your insignificance in the face of cosmic events, and wish desperately for a quiet and swift end to your meaningless consciousness.

The Dude’s High 5s: Board Games


I don’t want to alarm anyone, but it’s time we had a serious talk.  Climb on up on ol’ Uncle Dude’s lap.  It’s time to hit you with some reality.  Everyone dies and no one will ever love you, they will just pretend because they are afraid to be alone.  Wait, no, that’s not what I wanted to say.  I know what it was, I’m quitting.  In one month’s time I will have done 1 year of High 5s.  So starting in March I will be leaving the High 5 game behind me and doing a new weekly column, and hopefully I will keep that one up for a year as well. I now return you to your regularly scheduled High 5.

One thing about the Dude you might not know is that I LOVE board games. One of my closest friends has a weekly scheduled game night where we play a variety of board games.  We’ve been doing it for years.  Because of this, I have played more board games than most of you probably thought existed. I am cocky about a lot of things, and my knowledge of board games is no exception.  So here we are, my favorite board games.

(Side Note: I’m not counting CCGs like Magic or Pokémon)
