Popcorn. Secretaries & Ulcers.
Midweek Social's game stack is quite impressive, and at times threatens to topple from the shelves above. One game that has always intrigued me is Ulcers, and not because of its odd title, or even its rules stating that each player must gather together the following staff to win: a Vice President; a President; a Sales Manager; two Salesmen; and two Secretaries. No, my interest is in the depictions of the female characters, in this case, the secretaries. Some look like the salesmen, while others seem to have a five o'clock shadow. I love them, and I love the resourceful family member's rendering of a secretary to replace a missing card. It's those little finds that make me smile, like the Bullwinkle drawing I shared weeks ago.
