    Ebola monkey hunty is made by a company called cheapass games.

    They come in envelopes, and come with the board on card in pieces and any cards you need for the game and then expect you to supply anything else like counters, "pieces" and dice since all th little fiddly plastic bits and dice and everything else are:
    1) Expensive (in terms of total product cost)
    2) You already have loads of these from other board games.

    In ebola monkey hunt you play members of a research/crisis control team who has to retreive ebola ridden monkeys accidentily let out in an office. Whoever wins gets a hefty research grant, hence the use of you tranquiliser guns on other players rather than monkeys.

    Killing Dr Lucky is effectively Cluedo in reverse where you're all trying to murder everyone and is also a cheapass game

    and Orcs at the Gate is based on the knights of the dinner table comics

    Yeah, but you get to shoot all your friends, knock them out and puncture their bio hazard suits so they have to run screaming fo the cool zone in order not to die.

    It also features the card kicking it John Woo style, which allows you to ignore all limitations such as rate of fire and actual amounts of ammo you're still carrying

    Actually, I know of two that are shorter. If you're black and white moves just right, you can mate in 2 moves. Also, the fool's mate I've heard of is 4 moves.

    You'll have to forgive me (I don't know chess shorthand)

    White:
    King's bishop's pawn moves forward 2 spaces
    Black:
    King's pawn moves
    White:
    King's knight's pawn moves forward 2 spaces
    Black:
    Move queen diagonally to edge of board

    Mate!

    Heh, one of my friends at school got shotglass checkers (that way you don't have to think as hard )

    How about favorite drinking games, while we're on the subject?

    for drinking games spoof takes some beating.

    everyone at the table has 3 coins. you all put your hands behind your back and fiddle with your coins.Then put one hand out in front of you closed containing 0,1,2 or 3 coins.The idea of the game is to guess how many coins there are around the table.If you call it right then you are out.First person out calls up a shot of whatever he wants.Last person left drinks it and pays for it. Very fun way of getting ........ed.
