none.

They don't have one for Night Trap. I can kind of understand why.

Indeed, this is awesome. I love how they are a mixture of video & computer games, board games, and traditional games. The detail on each is wonderful.

I would gorge myself on Yars Revenge cupcakes if given the chance.

I've played 75 of thes-OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE WITH MY LIFE

I've only played 51 of the games, but I would probably eat all of the cupcakes.

Postroad: "none."

Impossible. By looking at the page you played the game that the bonus level is for, so your number must be at least 1. Also, you just lost the game.

~60 for me (that I actually played); I could identify many more, but some baffled me ("Qvegl Zvaqf"? "Jvgf naq Jntref"? "Gvqqyljvaxf"???).

I find it strange that Postroad has never played chess, checkers, Yahtzee or any other classic games.

These were brilliant, btw, if only because the Munchkin Duck of Doom caught me by surprise.

(How many have I played? 80 or so?)

Barrel of Monkeys is a game?! I thought it was just a barrel of monkeys.

You're thinking of sardine tin of monkeys. That is just awful. Really no child should be exposed to that. Emotionally scarring and also quite messy.

Barrel of monkeys on the other hand is made of unicorn dust and rainbow juice.

A cupcake paying homage to cribbage.

And I thought I had seen it all.

Doing fine 'til I hit Pit (75). Then I had to go have a shower.

This is fantastic.

I scored 82, and my first thought was "Hmm, maybe that childhood wasn't so bad."

Good stuff. But let's see them try making a cupcake of 4 Second Frenzy though.

84. Hm, thought I'd do better than that.

That was some fantastic fondant!

75. Six of them I have played for the first time in the past few months. I have to say that the Scattergories and Duke Nukem cup cakes are my favorites.

All the underground pumping-up fun of Dig Dug, but in cupcake form. I want a dozen of those.

90. Wooooo!

This makes me want to promise to never again declare that I just don't have time to do something.
posted by Rudy Gerner at 9:10 PM on January 6, 2010


52, but I'm counting that liberally.

For instance, a number of the video games listed I've played clones of, but never the original game.

I notice a nice one for Rock, Paper, Scissors, but no love for the superior version, Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock.

Far below everyone else here in terms of game count, I think. Oh well. Favorite cupcake - 71, Munchkin, without a doubt. The other cupcakes featuring actual game characters seems a tad disturbing, if you ask me, especially Link in 80. Is that psychotic murderous rage in those big eyes or what?

Either someone was is gifted or has too much time on their hands. I like the first option.

96. Thank you metafilter, for answering the question "What have you done with your life?". Apparently it's playing obscure games that cross generations!

Seconding the cribbage cupcake. That and Mille Bornes. Haven't though of those in years, since grandpa passed away.

They had a cupcake for Twixt - awesome. I remember playing that some 20-25 years ago, pulled out of the stack of my dad's old strategy/wargames. Is there a cupcake for Avalon Hill's 'Starship Troopers'?
posted by FatherDagon at 10:04 AM on January 7, 2010


Oh yeah, and 92.
posted by FatherDagon at 10:07 AM on January 7, 2010


63, with Wits & Wagers being the newest-to-me on that list (and recommended).

Liars Dice? Looked like Yahtzee to me.
posted by Thorzdad at 2:39 PM on January 7, 2010


That's what I thought at first too, Thorzdad. When I saw the Yahtzee scorepad further down I went, "wait, they used that one twice..." until I went back up and checked the first one. They should have put on six or more dice, so it would be less likely to be confused with Yahtzee.

These were much better than I expected. I am blown away. The Tomb Raider one is my favorite because she focused in on what made the game popular. I do wonder what "cupcake randomization" is and if that job is available.
