Snake Eyes -- Move Jesus Six Spaces

It's amazing what one can find on the internet by following one link after another. I was looking at one of the referring urls coming to this blog and then, two links later, I discovered a new board game, "Playing Gods: The Board Game of Divine Domination".
Playing Gods is a satirical board game of divine domination. Two to five players each play a different god, and compete with each other to take over the world. This is done by spreading your believers, converting the followers of other gods, or killing them off with Acts of God.
My reaction to this game is a combination of hysterical laughter and horror. On the one hand, I salute the creators for ingenious creativity. Since I tend to be anti-religion, it sounds like it might be a real hoot to play. On the other hand, I generally detest games that glorify violence, in any form, though I must confess I used to play the board game Risk.

Nonetheless, I think it would be quite entertaining to watch Jesus, Buddha and Allah duke it out in someone's living room. Bring on the popcorn and beer!


  1. Great find! That's a good one. Been enjoying reading here. Thanks.

  2. At last I know what the A stands for. :-)
