Depression, anxiety, and obesity are now at all-time highs. By rejecting our genetic calling for games.
A player who said he did not love the games is a player who has not yet found his game.
Take a deep breath and you may sniff up a familiar musty scent that takes you way, way back. For old time’s sake, let’s look fondly on 13 of the greatest board games of all time:
I’m going to have to flip the table, kick my foot through the window, tear off my own arm, eat the arm, cry, and throw up in the next four seconds if I have any hope of expunging the darkness welling up in my soul like an oil derrick.

Getting stoned can be super fun, but it also has the potential to be the biggest letdown. Maybe you’re not with the “right” people, maybe it’s bad weed, or maybe you just go to a really dark place. You accidentally get too high and find yourself curled up in the fetal position thinking you’re going to choke on a wheat thin because your mouth is so dry. The paranoia begins and your glazed eyes start to panic. “I’m, like, too fucking high, you guys.”
