Dedicated to Melinda Ann Smith. No hard feelings about that other game?
The title of this game is a line taken from a golden oldie circa 1968, "Young Girl" popularized by Gary Puckett & The Union Gap (words & music by J. Fuller). It's not meant to imply that there's something horrible above May/December romances. If Bob & Imelda were consenting adults who loved each other, it's none of our damn business.
The reason you'd want to bother playing the game is still up for debate. You might enjoy playing it if you agree that glimpses of joy and beauty redeem an otherwise meaningless existence. For others, reading the rules will be enough. Maybe too much.
WTF were you thinking?
Now that it's done, I'd like to hear if any of this was fun to read, what parts are game design problems and why. Is this a role-playing game, or a board game that yells at you to stay in character? Take a look at the What's Wrong With This Picture page. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or poke around for related discussions (if any) on The Forge forum.
