finally a game that rewards slacking off
April 10, 2003

Chez geek is a fun little card game that is great to just look at. With art by Jhon Kovalic and the twisted people at Steve Jackson games writing the flavor text it's a barrel of laughs before you even start to play. the game play itself is pretty simple and well explained. Everyone gets a job card. Jobs like the corporate drone, the drummer, the campus job, and with expansions you could acquire such employment as the enveloope stuffer, the graphic artist, and even the Lord of the Fries(an injoke about a james earnest game.) I could explain how the rules work but just read them in another review or at the game itself is fun and with expansions allows for a lot of variety so it's not usually the same game twice. it's not very strategic but that doesn't mean it's arbitrary. it just means you can learn all the strategy in a few sessions. I play this game a lot and keep getting sick of it but then I stop playing it for a few days or a week and I come back to it. It's fairly mindless but it's a fun and funny game to add to your collection. Also it's a great game to introduce to people who don't really game to get them into it. I like to call games like this one gateway games. Like all steve Jackson games it's a bit pricey for what you get, but this ones pretty worth it.

funny cards and smooth game play
March 11, 2003

I like this game, not just because the cards are all ridiculous and funny, but also because the game play is smooth and sparks some serious debate (like, do you think origin of the species would really give you slack?). The evil cat jokes ar e my favorite part of the game. Come on, we've all had bad roommates, even if they were your siblings.

One of my favourite games! It's easy to learn, and can be played again and again. The artwork is swell, and the game runs smoothly.

It's much like the game Munchkin, only more thought through and funnier cards.

Oh, and to the person who complained that you don't get a D6 in the box, I'd like to remind that 99% of all housholds has one of these random-number-generators. I'm glad I did not have to pay extra money for an item I already own!
