I like gaming. I play on consoles (Playstation, Xbox). I play on my phone and my tablet: Marvel Puzzle Quest, Plants vs Zombies 2, Two Dots, 1010!, Words With Friends. And I play board games.
Once in a while, my friends and I get together to play Eldritch Horror. It’s a fun Lovecraftian game, and we spend hours solving horrible mysteries, slaying monsters and traipsing all over the world. (Also drinking and gorging on chocolate and junk food, but that’s beside the point.)
So it’s lots of fun. And there are a lot of puns. And innuendo. And euphemisms. And just plain awful jokes.
