You Cannot Beat the J.J. Abrams Board Game

In celebration of what should be the last season of Lost (unless there’s a twist!), the good folks over at io9 have made this J.J. Abrams themed board game that you absolutely will not win. Why? Well with every space being something like “Surprise! Your boss is the bad guy” (go back ten squares),” You notice the number 47 surrounds you everywhere you go (go back to start),” “You blow yourself up to save everyone (game over),” it’s pretty damn hard to advance. It’s a combination of things from Lost, Fringe and a little bit of MI3, Star Trek and Cloverfield thrown in for good measure.

But anyways, who’s pumped for Lost next week? It’s on Tuesday now? What the hell? Dislike. Anyway, I’ll be starting up my weekly “Lost Questions” column as of then, and now that we have readers this year, it should be a lot more fun!

    Tuesday is Groundhog’s Day. the producers chose that day to premier the new season on purpose. they may switch it back to Wednesday or Thursday… why would you dislike the best show on tv being on Tuesday? or Monday at 4am or any other time? you’re starting to sound like a separatist….

  • Last week a very important meeting took place among God, the Pope and Moses. They were troubled because the President of the United States was behaving in an inappropriate manner and there were many people who saw nothing wrong in what he had done. They decided that the only course of action left was to create an 11th Commandment to get their message across.

    Now, the problem remained exactly how to word this new commandment so that it matched the other commandments in style and holy inspiration. After great meditation and discussion they concluded: “Thou shalt not comfort thy rod with thy staff.”
