Blasphemy

OMG... can't... stop... laughing...

http://blasphemygame.com/

What covers nearly six square feet and costs 100 bucks and features various multicolored Jesus figurines, and the winner is the one who gets to be crucified first? No, not the carpet in Jerry Falwell's dorm room in hell, silly. It's Blasphemy, the board game.

Yes, now everyone gets to play a would-be Messiah as you race around the board maneuvering your personal Jesus through six phases of life, trying to get to the cross in time for the Big Event. Fight the devil! Give sermons! Drink a lot! Die for everyone's sins! You win!

Yes, it costs 100 bucks. But this ain't your average game. It's smart. It's extremely well made and well executed (so to speak). The cloth board is fully three feet across. Best part: A fresh new Jesus is crowned every time you play. Maybe the black one next time! Rejoice!

God bless Mark Morford for gracing the Net with his wit and wisdom.
