The humans and their friends have decided to play an after-dinner game. What? By Yggdrasil’s itty bitty root hairs! Didn’t you people just have an entire GAMING WEEKEND?! You want more games? Whatever it is, it will no doubt be either twee or boring, and I probably won’t like it.
On the other hand…
Ehehehe! Look! This game even comes with a warning label. This might be my cup of tea after all.
Blast! I think my enjoyment will be substantially diminished by the arrival of Perfect Steve and his stupid hair and his stupid white horse.
Sigyn! Get off that nag! You don’t know where it’s been!
Sigh. Looks like Captain Spanglepants is going to be my adversary in this game. Let’s see. What is the object, again?
Ah, yes. To become governor AND amass $50,000 dollars. Pffft! I can do that.
Especially since they can’t make the charges stick.
Other cards announce the acquisition of kickbacks and bribes in varying amounts. Or else send one up or down a level on the influence scale. Right now, we are all hovering somewhere around “dog-catcher.” We will have to rise considerably to even get on a committee.
We have been playing forever, and no one has attained any rank beyond local councilman. We all keep getting sent back down levels and having to shell out for bribes.
Of course, it doesn’t help that Fisi has gotten involved.
Mostly by eating the cards.
Barboni’s cafe–what an AWFUL place! Every time I go there, I end up having to pay someone or give up a lucrative position.
Good Fisi! Good hyena! Chew up Barboni’s cafe! There’s an extra biscuit in it for you if you can shut it down entirely!
And a dozen pork chops if you widdle on Cap as you go ’round…
