Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch...
Last night, we played YET ANOTHER game of "Killer Bunnies." Now, I do appreciate getting together with my friends. But I just don't get their fascination with this game.
To those "not in the know", Killer Bunnies is a card game that was created in this great tomato state. The aim is to protect your bunnies from getting killed, kill other bunnies, and earn carrots, hoping that one of them is the "magic carrot." The game encourages strategy and negotiation, alliances, etc. And can be a lot of fun.
Apparently, it's so much fun that 3 of my friends have purchased the game (and its gazillion expansion packs). Since they've spent more than $100 each on this game, they feel the need to get the most out of their purchases. And so, almost every time we get together for a "game night," out come the bunnies. It's gotten to the point that I would rather enjoy playing Monopoly... and I HATE Monopoly.
