Comic Josh Gondelman and artist Molly Roth share a list of just a few of their favorite games that adults play. This week, egg, you’re it!
Number of players: 1 + as many doctors as it takes
Description of gameplay: In a game of endurance, a player consults with a medical team to postpone procreation indefinitely by preserving her eggs. There is no opponent in this game. Freeze Egg, much like golf, is primarily a challenge of the player’s own skills.
Game ends when…: A player becomes the winner when she gives birth, changes her mind and adopts a child, or decides “You know what? Kids are kind of a hassle anyway. Forget the whole thing.”
