I'm pretty sure there isn't a human being alive on this Earth who hasn't played at least one board game. Quite simply, board games are fun, challenging, and addictive, just like crack cocaine and kidnapping rich people's children. But as simple as they are, board games often imitate reality in epic ways. Chess incorporates elements of military, political, and religious conflict just as Candy Land has candy, and everyone loves candy. With all that jibber-jabber said, the Something Awful Forum Goons set out to turn things around by combining classic elements of board games with reality. The results were both odd and odd, or odd squared.

We're finally back after last week's mysterious hiatus! Before I get things going, I want to thank Worth1000.com for sponsoring this week's Phriday. If you fancy yourself a connoisseur of Photoshop tomfoolery, give them a try and a half. They've got a lot of great talent and cool contests going on daily, so it's well worth your clicking.

Board games mimic life, yes, but now reality imitates board games! As usual, the Something Awful Forum Goons got all whacked up on PCP and whipped out a unhealthy slew of images among other things.

I got things started with a little Battleship action:

"ManiacClown" fires some heavy weapons. Hey, that bastard sunk my battleship!

"SenatorASSFACE" didn't get my vote, but this image sure does:

"RipVTide" learned geography from losing at Risk:

"NotJust4Breakfast" wants to go to Iraq or something:

"GoatRearEnd" could probably benefit from jumping out of a plane:

  • Get In The God Dang Weight Room, Johnny Manziel!

    Get In The God Dang Weight Room, Johnny Manziel!

    Simply put, if I had Johnny Manziel’s physical gifts, you better believe I would be there in the Weight Room, getting to bed early, doing whatever I had to do to be the best possible athlete I could be. I wouldn't be posting on social media about sucking titties. I wouldn't even look at a titty, buddy. I'd look at a titty and see two big footballs.

  • Helping Your Real Friends Move

    Helping Your Real Friends Move

    A real friend doesn't move until the middle of August, ensuring temperatures in the 90s and a humidity that turns boxers into moist balls of ruined cotton.
