Hey, that's life. What can you do? The DMV has a monopoly.

Seems legit.  Otherwise, how would you learn that kid #5 can just lay sideways in the car?

Sierra Leone has lots of problems and every once in a while some official will try to get something fixed.  Too bad there are more revolutionaries in the country than there are smart leaders.

What a boggle.  Sounds like a risk.  Without even giving you a clue, you could guess who would be in trouble if everyone had to do that... Everyone in this dominion, that's for sure.

Competitors move models of classic cars around the board after rolling traffic light-themed dice.

Driving in Sierra Leone is often reckless, vehicles poorly maintained and roads severely degraded in many areas. The country has no working traffic lights.


I don't think you thought your cunning plan all the way through.

It's okay. The dice don't work either.

If only we hadn't had this decades ago we might have cause to be critical.

Based on that level of government regulation, it's nearly a Tea Party vision of America.

A trivial pursuit certain to lead to a headache.

This actually makes a lot of sense when dealing with young drivers. Kudos to his guy for thinking outside the box.

Unfortunately, they'll be using this game for the test.

Seems reasonable enough. If you're too stupid to get through a game of Clue and think it's Colonel Scarlet in the piano room with the candleabra, how are we persons of normal (or in some cases superior) intelligence supposed to trust you in a two-ton maker ofhuman jelly?

People are idiots. Curb (kerb?) The stupidity!

Design dumb-ass boardgame.  Use your position as a government bureaucrat to get it mandated as a required purchase for all drivers in the entire nation. Get it manufactured for dirt cheap overseas.  Profit!

We need a video game version here, and I mean one with rules and scores that actually encourage good driving.  They could call it Driving with Mom, which would include a nagging woman's voice freaking out every time you go over the speed limit or do anything else the slightest bit risky.  It'll likely include the phrase, 'You drive just like your father.'

/my mom always compared my driving to her dad's

Crosscountry USA series. I remember playing this as a very young teen on my 486/66. Cheesy but fun at that age.

No, just n...

Wait. Yes, actually. Make people play that for five hours straight, without any music, without looking at a text message or Facebook, just the sound of the engine. If you can get through that without going off the side of the road, you pass the test.

I need some hints.

What gear do you use going up Gum Drop Mountain?

How do you avoid the R.O.U.S. (Reese's of Unusual Size) in Candy Cane Forest?

I've played Mille Bornes. It's not a bad game. It's sort of like Uno with cars.

Get a clue, with a little stratego you won't really have to risk failing your driver's test. While I doubt it would be more fun than a barrel of monkeys, it it will probably lead to less trouble and aggravation than the old operation of a written test..

If this doesn't make any sense, than Sorry! My brains are a little scrabbled this morning.
