HouseBoy: The Board Game

Thanks to Inexplicable DeVice for bringing a new board game to our attention.

[via]

The following is a loose description (taken from here) of HouseBoy: The Board Game...

“You and the other players are “house boys” in the home of the gay, wealthy, and elderly Jonathan Glamcock, who is in his last days. Your goal is to suck up to Jonathan by doing chores around the house in hopes of winning his good favor (and, in the end, his fortune)– but you can’t resist boinking the other boys as well, despite the cameras all around the house spying on you.”

From the publisher: “The best player is the one that gets the most action with the other house boys while keeping a façade of faithfulness to Jonathan by doing the most chores and thereby winning his entire fortune.”

We ask you now to adjourn to the Infomaniac Games Room to test out the game and give us your version of what happens.

  5. I'm not good at these sorts of things. Taking care of others simply isn't my thing. So I'll be in that corner playing by myself...

    Is the vodka fountain not plugged in?

    Playing with yourself, did you say?

  7. No, the houseboys haven't turned it on, they said they're too busy and I'm not getting off this bar stool.

    'Petra had me invest in these fabulous patent leather lace up Louboutins, and I sure as hell can't walk in them.

  10. I ended up doing all the chores & got too tired to get any action. So now I'm in the cheeseroom making up a platter, and bringing drinks back to the gameroom for those that are still playing.

  11. Does anyone in this mansion actually work? Because Mr. Glamcock needs his sippy cup refilled. Miss J tried (sort of) but he threw a satin slipper at her and screamed, "Get me a houseboy, hag!"

    She supposes she's not up for that inheritance...

  13. COOKIE: Mistress has seen it. Wouldn't you?

    I’d never leave the house.

    CYBERPOOF: One will send two of ones man servants over to collect Miss Roses once she's had enough fun.

    Does "passed out" mean too much fun?

    WALLY: I ended up doing all the chores & got too tired to get any action. So now I'm in the cheeseroom making up a platter, and bringing drinks back to the gameroom for those that are still playing.

    That would explain the melted mozzarella on the carpet.

  15. I won!

    I had the rest of the Houseboys under my spell, thereby keeping me amused and doing all the chores for me, too!

    Jonathan Glamcock's fortune is mine, all mine!

  16. Nah. Nothing can beat the powers of the love mitten.
    Sx

  17. SCARLET & IVD: Mr. Beastie’s Love Mitten would clean up, it’s true.

    ReplyDelete
  18. If I pretend to be Mr Beastie, can I have all the money?
    Sx

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes. But how do you propose to disguise yourself as Mr. Beastie?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I could disguise myself as a love mitten? Somehow that sounds a bit wrong.
    Sx

  21. Perhaps you should rethink this plan, Miss Scarlet.

  22. I will come up with something...
    I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.
    You see, I've already Gone With The Wind...
    Sx
