Parker Eruputs (sic) -- the Board Game
Well, I'd always wanted to make a MSG (Miss Super Girl) game. One day at Arbys, my mom and dad started joking about a game called "Parker Erupts". I thought it sounded great, so I took out some cardboard, a pencil, crayons, and a black marker, then I made some cards, and from a lost game, I took out some guys.
We played it a lot. Then my dad said, "Wanna put this game on the internet?" And I said, "Yes!" So, I guess this was great practice, and hopefully I'll make a MSG game someday.
Below is how you can play Parker Eruputs© too.

Open the cards document linked to below and print it. This document has all the playing cards. After printing it, cut each card out individually. For color, I colored the playing side of each card. On the Back of each card I put the Parker Erupts logo.
There are four each of numbers 1 through 3, and "Parker Erupts!" There are three each of 4 through 12.
For the players, you can use any household objects that fit conveniently on the game board. I suggest you use small coins, like a dime, penny, or nickle. So long as you can tell them apart. We used the game pieces from Clue&trade Jr.
How to Play
The game is easy to play, just follow these simple rules.
- The game is designed for 1 to 4 players, but if you can keep track what square each player is on, then you can have as many player as you want
- Start with the youngest player first, then go clockwise around the board for each player.
- When it is a players turn, that player draws a card.
- If the *card* has "Parker Erupts!", and you are not on a "Parker Erupts!" square, it counts as a zero. Do not move foward.
- If the card has a number, move that player forward that many spaces and read the square. Only do what the first square you land on says. For instance, if you land on a square that says to move forward 3, move forward 3, but don't do what the new square says.
- If the square you land on says "Stop!", you lose your next turn.
- If the square you land on says "Parker Erupts!", you may not move forward until you draw a card that says "Parker Erupts!".
- The winner is the first person to reach the end of the game.
- It's that simple
- For an extra challenge, you can make the move to the last space require an exact number.
