I hate Urban Myth. And democracy.
As it turns out, our first game lasted only about 20 minutes. This, we learned is a fluke. Our next game lasted about an hour and a half, and had me begging for people to cheat so we could get it over with more quickly.
"What's so bad about Urban Myth" you ask? To put it nicely, Urban Myth is a game designed by lonely and frustrated nerds to prove once and for all, their sad and mighty nerd superiority. Players are asked questions and it is their tedious job to guess which is Truth and which is Myth, occasionally gaining letters which will help them end the tortuous agony of this game, but only when the stars align, and their marker is on a spot containing a letter they actually need at the time.
Here is a sample question: Did Nero fiddle while Rome burned? [Tick tock, tick tock]
Democracy is a tough row to hoe, people.
