What You'll Get
Without games, boredom-related deaths on rainy days would skyrocket, Mr. Boddy's brutal murder by candlestick would still be unsolved, and humanity would lose its ability to detect cheating. Today’s Groupon helps keep the human race honest and entertained: for $10, you get $25 worth of games from TheGameShop.com. This Groupon is valid for online purchases only, and can be used toward shipping, which costs a minimum of $7 for orders less than $75.
TheGameShop.com stocks its digital closet with an enormous selection of addictive board games, party games, educational tools and games, and games that transcend all categories. More than 1,000 different titles are available, ranging from old classics such as Battleship ($22.95) to neo-classics such as The Settlers of Catan ($44.95). Browse through the online game factory’s shelves using the handy keyword search option to locate an old family favorite such as Pit ($9.95), which pits bears against bulls in staged barley-field showdowns as kids seven and up learn how to corner the commodities market. Otherwise, opt for a game that reflects the truth-twisting tendencies of our post-postmodern society, such as The Wrong Game ($24.95), which rewards players for clever falsehoods with a Congressional seat. DIY doctors, meanwhile, can practice practicing medicine with Scabs ‘n’ Guts ($19.95)—a mishmash of meducational body trivia that will surprise participants with facts about their corpora. Or just stick with the tried-and-true Operation ($22.95), which is famous for alerting innovative physicians such as William Worrall Mayo and Hippocrates to the health risks posed by pun-based injuries.
