Twilight Struggle

Struggling to be accepted
The twilight of wargames?
It's a wargame
No it's not
It's a war themed euro
No it's not
It's the cold war
But that wasn't a war
Forgotten heroes
Victims in forgotten alleys
Killed in a coup or a re-alignment?
Twilight Struggles against this #1 wargame

Who cares about the price?
Who cares about the limited edition?
This is flat out the best litter box my cat has ever owned.

Why did you play the card to my heart?
Ted, you make my heart Racier with this game.

Here I stand
With this heavy box
It's game night alone I guess
Here I stand
Rules in hand
I just need 2 more players
The wars of protestant reformation?
Nah! They say, "It's lame!"
They don't understand
Here I stand
Great game in hand
Nobody will play
Here I stand
Like Ottoman's Besieging Ravenna
When will someone play this great game?

Perhaps, puzzling is a better way to put it

Tanks!
Where are the tanks?
There are no tanks?
Why no tanks?
The tanks are missing from this game!
How can you not have tanks?
Oh...wait a minute!
This game is fantastic.
No tanks are necessary.
Now deal me a hand...
Wait..no way...no guns either?

Like SPQR for kids without tweezers
Your armies crawl and sprawl toward the center
The rush of cavalry sweeping the flanks
The thrill of another expansion
Stickers stickers everywhere and now my hands are bleeding
I love you for the sake of wood
Your raw power and force
The muscular benefits of lifting your heft
A game is had when you're off the shelf
Manly is manly and this game's for men
But so many manly man can't win against their women
So to all the women who thrill at the dice
Who struggle and win remaining fairer and nice
I say to you, on behalf of your men
Piss off and find a new game

More Blocks
More Stickers
More Leaders with feathers
On grognards to battle
In block form you go
Hold the center you fools
That arty must go!
The Left
The Center
The Right
All have cards
But I cannot seem to roll the sabre I need just to win...

You started life inside a bag
You caught the eye of GMT babe!
You grew and flourished
Your press got so good
That McGowan and Co.
Pimped you in red
Your box sleek and sexy
Your chits, how they stand
Their glossy and glassy and info heavy board how grand
Now VPG wins because you brought more glory
To those who knew not of the industry party
being held by the Emrich's in their humble press
So off of the shelves you should fly in a flash

Is ASL better than ASL?
Is Life better than ASL?
What's more real, a punch in the face or ASL?
Can ASL raise my kids?
What would ASL do?
I'm looking for something just like ASL, but not at all...Can you help?

NO! I cannot help.
I'm busy playing ASL.
Must we all compare willies with the game wrapped in red
that's brought us much joy in a tactical sense?
Can't we just agree that as ASL gamers go, there's no sense
in trolling they're happy in plano, and Racco, and sleeve protectors?

You are a myth.
A unicorn.
You are rumored to return
when the frosty pools of autumn freeze for the long crystal winters
To play from a deck
The greatest of card games
so it's told amongst grognards
that now you're a legend
Forgotten in your hey day
only now crisp with sheen
ahead of your time?
Or just a nostalgic dream?

1776 was a stark year for our forefathers
fumbling and fighting to keep freedom alive
The Brits were well trained
And...DANG!
