Asshole Creates Serial Killer Board Game

Hip. Edgy.

In an e-mail describing her reasons for turning it down, Chronicle editor Debra Lande called it "too dark, morbid, not funny, not PC and sick-o. I do admire his execution (design/production)."

How about retarded? Seriously, how long could this fucking thing go on? Won't we run out of Jack the Rippers before we amortize the hotels on Park Place? At some point we'll all be passing Go without paying up.

Hobson is aware that his game is not in good taste but he says good taste never interested him.

There's a shocka.

2 I didn't get a single one of the trivia questions except the one about Utah.
I knew they were the last state to allow firing squads.

3 The son of the governor of Kansas is trying to market a prison themed board game called -- Don't Drop The Soap.

4 Dave in Texas.....I don't get any of your humor.

But I think it's because I'm drunk.

Before I got drunk, I was convinced I was having congestive heart failure and would drop dead at any minute, leaving my poor wife a widow with three hyperactive, underachieving kids.

Now I feel fine.

Pray for me, RWS!

5 I tried to design a tentacle porn board game once...but all the research showed the market only wanted a solo player version for some reason....

6 I don't think the article mentions it, but the game uses little plastic dead babies as icons. I suggested to Dave that the AoSHQ version of the came would use little plastic dead hobos.
Mesa, I sent that prison board game story to Dave too, but I guess you beat him to the punch. Now you've ruined it for all of us!

7 Wow. For a guy with a strange obsession for serial killers, that picture is awful creepy.

Just a guess, I thinkyou aren't drunk enough.

11 Per the link, Richard Ramirez told the judge after being sentenced to die, "See you in Disneyland?"

That's just good stuff.

12 I've been "in the 'hood" With Gein, Speck, Gacey and Dahmer,in that I lived in those places at the times of those crimes.This guy needs to be smacked hard and often for this travesty of decency.But I will say the my clown couch of lesbo nurses is rather comfy
And I am going straight to hobo hell for that.

13 True Crime stories are interesting, but I don't get those people who hold them up as some kind of praise-worthy pop culture icon. There's so much Serial Killer-themed novelty merchandise around these days. It's just a kitschy kind of lame.

The Vampire of Paris sells paintings of serial killers on the internet. Nice to know a murderous blood-drinking cannibal can get out of jail and make a nice living for himself, huh?

14 Wasn't this a Dilbert joke in which Asok designed a "killer ap" that was a database of serial killers based on some less than helpful advice.

16 If the guy who gave me the idea for a serial killer board game coincidentally "swallowed enough Valium to overdose and drowned himself in Lake Washington," I hope it would occur to me that this hobby might not be good for one's mental health.

17 Trivia game?? Eeeeww! I thought it would be a boardgame, that'd be cool! Lets face it, after Trivial Persuit (invented by Canadians) everything else is a pale copycat. Get it? As in copycat killer? Oy.
But really, a mass-murder boardgame or serial killer boardgame would be fun! Like Deathrace 2000 fun! Assorted weapons, different points for different killer/victem combos, style points! Got arrested? Start cleaning up inside the slammer!
Just hang on to the soap, eh?

22 Who says this administration was totally devoid of good ideas?? The seed of this idea can be found in the Saddam Hussein playing cards. Way to go!!!

23 Aww, come on guys, what about Dexter?

Of course, he's a fictional serial killer that kills serial killers. Kind of like a lawyer who sues lawyers. I guess that's what makes it okay.

I think there are a few sick 'tardlings who actually do have a "fan" attitude toward real serial killers (or criminals in general, see gang culture), and that should probably be discouraged, perhaps by simply defining such people arbitrarily into the group we refer to as "hoboes."

24 You miss quoted ryan by the way. He said that "Art's job is not meant to be tasteful." Which is true. It's a boardgame/trivia game combination and since there are only 3 in existence, and 2 were sold at an art show, guess what? this is not available to the general public. Now why is anyone making a fucking big deal about it at all...
