Since we have been playing games, I've come up with a few neat game ideas.

  • Work Fears
    • Similar to Atmosfears but the antagonist is a CEO 
    • The CEO would say phrases like:
      •  "STOP, who's turn is it next?  You are demoted." 
      •  "STOP, what maggot is next?  You are fired." 
    • The players pieces could be computer technicians, accountants, Mailroom clerks, Middle Management, Assistants etc...
    • The cards could have funny work terms, pink slips, time cards,  work requests
    • The board could be laid out like an office facility, maybe even multiple cubicle areas
    • The goal would be retirement or partnership
