That's the best review for a board game ever! I love how you describe the weird "boy energy" he has to release- I've totally seen that in kids and it's awesome and weird. Glad you guys liked it! I was planning on getting that game a few years back because it reviewed really well as a gateway-game, but never got around to it. Bring it to the next Man-Con.
The Benny Hill version of the Red Wedding didn't go over so well with my wife. I was watching it and she was all "why are you watching that again" before the music came on. Then she was just kinda disturbed. I kept saying "this makes it better, see!" but don't think that helped.
