The original dot is that there are peanuts on airplanes, correct?
The next dot would be that George Bush almost died from a friggin pretzel.
This demonstrates an obvious pattern of attempted assassination by use of salted snacks, which Bush could only gain plausible deniability for by
nearly becoming a victim himself.
You've invented a new aspect of game play Vagabond. A fnord
While the fundamental premise of the game is to connect
a given dot
to The Bush Agenda
(helping illuminate whatever that might be
over the course of play) then provide a typically unrelated dot
for the next player, you've done so with a snark
airline snacks to the pretzel incident (a bash
all it's own), and provided the very connection
as the next dot
... a Fnord
Very sportsmanlike of you as it's an easy setup for a conspiracy
assist (linking three dots
Note though as game play advances players will want to provide less obvious dots
(except in matters of strategy) as the goal is to increase the
difficulty level for your opponents while quietly directing game play to your own agenda of conspiracy

Yes it is! Isn't it wonderful?
And we've just begun.
At heart this is a conspiracy game
merely using Bush Bashing as an anchor. In this version, the goal is uncovering the full gamut of
influence for the insidious Bush Agenda
. Conservative players should take note this has nothing to do with politics and give it a shot.
Furthermore, the ridiculous complexity of game play (hopefully increasingly so over time) should be familiar to fans of the drinking game
, where random arbitrary rules are interjected at interval to an increasingly cumbersome system
of play that in effect is the
Self assuredness, not doubt, is key. But we'll go ahead and add the element of non-game play Bah's
now to help.
is what I'm doing now. Any non-game play aside, interjection, propsal or question anyone wants to make. Even if it's just to
the game and inform the players that we never talk to them anymore and they're breaking up with us.
We'll also go ahead and assign a game goal for completion of this amateur edition
. The first SS maneuver
ends it. Points are then
tallied by the current Bash Master
upon game end from among all the arbitrarily assigned points along the way ala Who's Line is it
. This assumes an obvious winner, not requiring the previously promised show
of democracy inaction, but that is a fallback
Additional rules may be proposed at any time by anyone, but the current Bash Master
ultimately decides whether or not to incorporate them.
That's about the extent of the Bash Master
's power over game play though as they are limited to only making one new rule of their own
proposal per turn as Bash Master
. The Bash Master
gauntlet get passed throughout the game as conspiracies
are made. I'll serve
now, but we're close to our first conspiracy so it won't be for long.
No rules can be removed though. Just new ones added on.
While still BM
I suppose I'll make my arbitrary one now in the spirit of quarters
to help people get the idea.
No mentions of "Drink, Drank or Drunk."
(an especially difficult rule to adhere to in Bush Bashing
). And I just earned a snark
See? Getting it?
I'm trying to limit my play in the amatuer edition
here so I'll just make a quick pretzel connection to the Bush Agenda

leaving that open for the BM
### Back to Game Play
The "pretzel incident" was most likely a "beer and pretzels" related message
August A. Busch IV
, beer tycoon, unhappy both that Bush gave up
drinking so publicly and has such disasterous foreign relations policies stiffling American beer exports, which explains subsequent industry wide tax
I know that knocks on your inside job set-up theory V. for plausible deniablity about the peanut genocide, but that's the risk of Fnord
: I'm sticking with Nipplegate
since it's already out there. (Another snark
Okay, three dots
in the game so far...one open needing a connection
to continue, and no conspiracies
made. Remember the
was just a mini-conspiracy bonus between two dots
, not three. Next full conspiracy

now needs a connection
to the Bush Agenda
, then we need another dot
. Also, if so inclined,
one may make a peanut, pretzel, nipplegate conspiracy
relationship exposing a higher level of the Bush Agenda
and steal the

I can't believe I just said that.
