The Tick Board Game

You might be thinking, "Board game! Cool! I must have it! The Tick is God!" Or, you might be thinking, "Heyy, Gomer Pyle's on!" Or you might be thinking, "Boy, is she pretty." But the first thought is the one you should be thinking! Besides the 'God' part... a little too obsessive.

Well, once upon a time, in 1995, I went up to visit my grandparents in Chico, California. Well, my grandma is super-nice, so when I asked her if we could go to the mall, she said, "Um, okay, yeah." Wow! You must remember, I was young and foolish. I meen, I coodnt even spel rite. Anyway, we went to a Kaybee's toy store, or a Toys R Us, or a comic book store (I can't remember which). I was looking for Tick toys and stuff, and I stumbled upon the game.

Yep, I saw it plain and simple: The Tick: Hip Deep in Evil. I saw the Big Blue Guy, Arthur, American Maid, and Die Fledermaus. But then there were the villians. Oh the villains. There was Dinosaur Niel, El Seed, Chairface Chippendale, and the Breadmaster. So I saw them heroes, and I says, they need help, I says. So then I says, I says, "Gran'ma, can we get this?" and she said, "Um, okay, yeah." Wow!

So that's how I got it. Okay, now you know where to get it. Now, you ask, what's so cool about this game? Well, the cover is cool... but you wanna know how to play it, right? Well, here's the manual thingy!
