Top 5 Unplayed Board Games in My Collection

FACT: People love lists, consistency and alliteration.

With that in mind, I bring you the fourth edition of Top 5 Friday; a weekly (or bi-weekly, if I’m being honest) list of dork topics, random thoughts and balderdash.

As you may already know, I’m an avid board-gamer.  It’s probably my favorite hobby.  Unfortunately, being a responsible adult (and gaming with other responsible adults) means that I don’t get to play games nearly as often as I would like.  In fact, I probably spend more time buying board games than actually playing them.  With that in mind, I give you the Top 5 Unplayed Board Games in My Collection.

Sesame Street Parody: Game of Chairs

I remember when I was a young lad working at Barnes & Noble in college, and all of my co-workers were atwitter about this dark new fantasy book: A Game of Thrones. It took me a couple years to buy in, and then I started advocating the series to my friends.

I never imagined what a cultural phenomena it would become. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any bigger, our most beloved childhood icons produced this outstanding parody. Enjoy!
