So after two posts about Angus’s proposed new game lines for Mayfair (and untold behind the scenes hours spent pontificating on “Rare Angus game design theory”), I decided I had to get in on the act. After all, I’m a capable, talented, intelligent ewe with a lot of good ideas about games and gaming. Why shouldn’t there be a ClaireFair line?
No good reason, I say.
ClaireFair Shear Panic is pretty much the same game, but replacing Roger the Handsome Ram with Claire the Lovely Ewe. Let them fight for my attention.
Similarly, ClaireFair Elk Fest isn’t really different as far as the rules go. However, it does come with a small bag of baubles, glitter, bangles, beads, and other such craftables so that you can bedazzle your moose just like I did. And if you need any help, just give me a shout in the comments. Have hot-glue gun, will travel.
ClaireFair takes the nighttime intrigue of Nuns on the Run and moves it from the abbey to the television studio. With Ewes on the Move, you’ll take the role of Young Intern, The Old Crank, or the Diligent Newsram. Everyone is sneaking around the studio, trying to get away with things to varying levels of success. I admit I tend to pull for the Intern.
And just like Angus, I feel a ClaireFair addition to the universe of Catan must happen. I pondered this one for a long time, unsure what I had to offer this wonderful line of games that might be new and interesting. Finally I hit it. Catan needs a dating game.
Wooers of Clairetan.
And I’d love to tell you about it. But I’m currently under a Non-Disclosure Agreement and could be fired if I gave out any details. According to the higher-ups at Mayfair, me and this game are just like Beyoncé: we don’t think you’re ready for this jelly. Which is a darn shame, really. I’ll let you know when we decide you’re jelly-ready, though.
So what do you say, Mayfair execs? If you’re going to play ball with Rare Angus, then you have to throw some love at Claire To The Moon Games, right?
Yeah, I’m waiting for that call.
