You guys, I have an addiction. I'm addicted to puns. I need them. I can't get enough of them. I HUNGER FOR THEM. That's why I've set up this weekly blog feature: so you guys can feed my addiction. Every week, I'll name the topic, give you some examples, and then you'll pun away in the comments, on Facebook, or on Twitter. I'll choose the best ones and post them here next week. Sound good? Good! Let's do it!
THIS WEEK'S EPISODE: Boozy Board Games!
In July of last year, we did Boozy Video Games. Now, we're doing Boozy Board Games. Choose a booze (brand or generic), choose a board game, and have at it. Here's our examples. We have five… because… umm… we came up with too many good ones…
The only good wars are the ones fought around a table with your friends. No casualties, no shattered cities or burned fields or starving refugees, and it's all over in a few hours. Here are eight game boards where millions of us have discovered the pleasures of phony wars. Some were total global conflicts, others mere skirmishes. Do you recognize these play battlefields?
We move them. We count them. We flip them. We treat them as little pieces of ourselves, our little proxies in an abstract world of fantasy. And then they're gone, lost under a dresser or dropped down a heating duct. They are game pieces. They are us. Do you know the games to which they belong?
I really enjoy Adventure Time. It's one of my favorite animated television shows of all time. To me, it's right up there with The Simpsons and DuckTales. Sure, Regular Show might have more edgy humor and a firm grasp of retro-pop references, but when I turn on Cartoon Network, I do it because I'm watching Adventure Time. I watch Regular Show because it happens to be on. There are a couple of AT mobile games out there, and I decided on a whim to add Jumping Finn Turbo to my collection.

Man oh man, do I want to get some city building on, and I want to get it on, like, NOW. So you can imagine how excited I was to learn about a new iteration of SimCity, the city simulator. It takes all the addictiveness of cocaine but makes it cheaper and arguably less detrimental to a healthy heart. The reviews came out and the game was deemed "GREAT" by excited city-building nerds everywhere.
Kids and adults alike waited for the game to be released so they could join in the fun of building and destroying cities; cities filled with people like you and me. Maybe those people in the game are sitting in their virtual apartments, on their virtual computers, playing a virtual city building simulation. Or maybe WE'RE the SIMULATION! Is your mind blown yet? Good. Because now we have to go into the dimension that exists on the side opposite the screen to your virtual city: reality.
