Mike: (at a bar, to bartender) What kind of drink do you recommend while designing a board game?
Bartender: Oh cool, like monopoly?
Mike: No, no - more like a cross between Agricola and Catan, with some Talisman thrown in. And a scifi-fantasy-horror-robot theme!
Mike: And there'll be little wooden meeples that represent exploding monsters. Creeples!
Randy: Hi there. I'm Randy Rogers of RaRo Board Games. You should give us a call. Your idea is just what we're looking for.
Mike: Elegantly complex?
RaRo: Ambitiously derivative.
