The Board Game
So – preface: today Dan did a liveshow. In said liveshow, he very quickly showed off a display of board games him and Phil owned. Alright, now that we have that out of the way, here is a post about what I’m about to discuss: x
I’m here to share my thoughts on this whole ordeal.
So the game rules pretty clearly state that completely platonic bros (such as Dan and Phil) can play. HOWEVER, what kind of platonic bros would play this? The questions delve pretty deep into sex lives, family lives, etc. It’s more realistic for lovers (such as Dan and Phil) to play this. I did some extra research on the game (aka googling pretty basic things), and found this: “ Once every couples has answered a ‘Starter’ card, they move onto the even more awkward questions in the ‘Main Course’ deck, before finishing on the painfully-awkward questions in the ‘Dessert’ deck.”
This means that after they complete the basic questions, they move onto intimate things. It’s like Round 2. Again, what kind of platonic bros would play this? Sure, they could play this and play as if they were dating (as the rules state is an option), but it’s still????? just???? It’s unrealistic they play this as bros. (sorry for constantly saying platonic bros i just find it hilarious) There’s questions about kissing, arousal, orgasms, etc. It’s awkward. I know I’d feel weird playing this with my best friend.
ALL of the headlines about this game on Google are about the “awkwardness of reliving these God-awful memories as partners” – I mean this is saying something, right?
My personal (and a little biased bc im a demon) opinion is: this is valid phan proof. Also: if you have things to support my opinion/counter arguments you can leave me an ask and we can all formally discuss this occurance!
