Screw moving little army figures around; I've been people at each others' throats after trapping each other in Blokus or refusing to make a trade in Bohnanza. They still make great games out there.

This game was from the 90s i believe and was ****ing amazing. I never really see it listed and i've always wondered why. didn't anyone else play this???

13 Deadend drive

you kill people off with a bunch of traps to find out something or to win money... It didn't even matter. just killing people off was fun.

I remember the ads for this, but I never met anyone that had it.

This game came out in 90 or 91, and it is as good as any 80s board game

Incorrect! It came out in 1989 in Europe and Australia. Only in North America did it come out in 1990.

PS. My brother got the game when we were younger and I loved it.

I've been with the same woman for almost 25 years now.

What? You don't like my nerdy man-cave?

I have a mini-fridge, a bar, and wi-fi. It's mah favorite place to hang out. which means I live in a basement
 Much like Orby, except mine has a window and I own it instead of my 'mom' 

That game table is wired for sound (you can see the speakers on the floor under it) and power. I'm getting a projector and a microwave next year. If I ever get around to installing plumbing down there I might move in.

Edit: I also have a wrist-rocket sling-shot. I use it, and d20s to ward off intruders. I also use d4s as caltrops. Don't even THINK about raiding my man-cave.

Living with your mom for 25 years doesn't count as "[being] with the same woman for almost 25 years".

Though I dislike Xcursion as a general rule, I agree that Shogun was a ****ing awesome game.
