The setting: Cube Farm. Each player has his or her own cubicle (their play area.) The object of the game is to complete your own workspace, including the best possible computer, a spy-phone with caller ID, a color deskjet printer, and a swingline stapler (more prizes may be added.) In the course of your job, you may be asked to make business trips. While these bring you more opportunities for income, respect, and greater access to the Office Depot catalog, an unoccupied cubicle is fair game for undocumented requisitions and unauthorized intradepartmental transfers. Players may search The Cube Farm (the drawing area) for additional office supplies, but if a 24" moniter is right there, so obviously not being used, why not take it? Plus, every hour away from the desk tracking down your Cuddly Office Mascot is a missed phone number--or a lost stack of burnable CDs.

This sounds like a great idea, but it needs something else. Like, if you're in your cube at the "wrong" time, you get hit up for donations to the fund for (insert name of annoying coworker here)'s wedding present/baby gift/going away luncheon. Also, if your boss comes by your cube and you're not on vacation, you got some 'splainin to do.

I was randomly looking at your "history" yesterday (since there is no way to look for poems, specifically, AFAIK), and have concluded that you lose your keys almost as often as I do. That's amazing. I have a similar problem with my glasses, which I seem to be unable to locate without--my glasses. And my vision isn't all that bad--it's just that the frames are so narrow, I don't see it without that fine focus. Yeah, that's it.

I guess you don't "lose" them so much as "lock them," and I somehow avoid that particular problem. I do lock myself out of my ofice with astounding frequency, however.

I think there'll be event cards spread through the supply cards in the Cube Farm draw area, with things like "Information Technology War," "Paper Shortage," "Micromanager," and so on, to make the vengeance-free Cube Farm a little more risky.

I'm actually not that bad, those were the only two times I actually locked my keys in, and I was having an intensely high-stress week. However, all my close friends know that Spotty's "favorite game" is Find the Keychain, because I always put them down, and then put whatever I was carrying down on them.

Maybe your Other Things are trying to save you by hurling themselves on your keys as if they were a gernade that was about to go off.

It's not very likely but it'd be cute if they were. It'd be even cuter if you had a pet fennec and it did that. :)

Make sure not to underestimate the importance of a fully functioning task chair.

That, I fear, may never exist (I'm still working on an elaborate game about haiku, which takes priority on the list of projects I'll never finish)
