While recently visiting my hometown of Salt Lake, I came across this old gem from college. As part of a visual design class, we had to mockup a new board game. I present to you Mormon Armageddon! It's basically a tongue-in-cheek Mormon version of Battleship. Rather than varying sizes of ships, it has various icons of good and evil. The game boards are the Celestial Kingdom and Outer Darkness. Heaven throws lightning bolts; Hell throws flames.
The game pieces are:
• Jesus vs. Satan
• Joseph Smith vs. Governor Lilburn Boggs
• Gordon B. Hinckley vs. Osama B. Laden
• Scrapbooking vs. Gambling (yeah, that's right)
• Hot Chocolate vs. Coffee
"You burned my scrapbook!"
"You martyred my Joseph Smith!"
