Reader Mail re: “Geek Game or Extreme-Metal Band?”

Kind reader AF chimes in on the parlor game that’s sweeping America:

It turns out that “Geek Game or Extreme-Metal Band” is one of those jokes that is going to stick with me every time I see a new board game. I’ve already spent 20 minutes working my way through the top 200 games on chuckling about which ones would make great metal band names.

Turns out that two I thought were contenders, “Pandemic” and “Ra”, are already taken by metal bands … So if you need any trick questions for your quiz – there you go. Actually, knowing what I know of board game geeks, I kind of doubt you’re hearing this for the first time.

I’m going to design a card game called SUNN 0))). It’ll be like UNO, but slower.
