This Canterbury Tales Board Game Looks REALLY FUN

Is it just me, or has the old-fashioned “Game Night” made a major comeback? Whatever auspicious alternate reality I’ve awakened into, I’m down to continue letting my lifeless body lie forgotten in a pod while my consciousness keeps itself busy by playing games like “The Road to Canterbury.”
It’s a board game version of Chaucer’s classic tale of morality, wit, and deceit, updated from the cool-yet-somewhat-difficult-to-translate Middle English into a modern game filled with word play, hilarity, and of course, puns.
Each player is an evil Pardoner whose goal is to tempt and “save” as many Pilgrims as possible. If those pesky Pilgrims aren’t being sinful enough, phony Relic Cards will help encourage them to stay the unrighteous path.
Check out these clever Relic Cards (Warning: Puns Ahead!):
