You Are Games: Babylon Sticks Caption Contest III

Comments (77) | Views (5,616)

You Are Games

ArtbegottiFor this installment of You Are Games, we considered holding a spaghetti-cooking competition. You know, one of those contests where people gather from miles around to boil water, throw in some noodles, and see who can prepare a plate of spaghetti in the least amount of time. However, we decided there were too many tricky details to holding a competition of this nature. What kinds of sauce should be allowed? Should there be a time penalty for improperly grating parmesan? And how do we prevent competitors from using linguine (practically the steroids of the pasta world) in their dishes?

bs-contest3-rageandcrosses.pngInstead, we figured it would be easier (and more carb-friendly) to ask you to supply a punchline for another edition of Babylon Sticks, JIG's weekly comic feature created by our very own James Francis. Take a look at the comic to the right. It's humorous on its own, but it needs a caption to really drive the hilarity home. That's where you come in! Submit your caption suggestions as comments below using a Casual Gameplay account (we'll contact the winner via the email address you have in it, so make sure it's up to date). All entries are due by Monday, December 13th at 11:59 PM (GMT-5:00). Multiple entries are allowed, but don't forget to stick with a gaming theme!

Be sure to keep in mind that this is an all-ages site, so keep your captions clean and profanity-free. Plus, some extra notes from our legal department:

  • All entries submitted to this contest become the property of Casual Gameplay.
  • You must be at least 13 years of age to enter.
  • Void where prohibited.
We'll be getting a hold of the winner via email. Now, warm up your funny bone and get to work!

Oh, and don't forget to keep an eye out for hidden gems floating around the website!


"If you think that's ragequitting, you should see his computer."


"it always ends up like this. except that time when he had an undo button"


"Quick! Erase the evidence!"

"You should have seen him playing 'I Wanna be the Guy'"

FiendishLlama December 9, 2010 1:49 AM

"He just missed yet another chance at sweep success!"

"Ground wins again. Time to clear the board!"

"Tsk tsk tsk... Should've put your O in the centre."

"Tic-tac-toe's too hard... he's gonna go win Gil"

Acrostic Poem...




"What? I thought i was X!"

"What? I thought it was minesweeper!"


Although an action of impulse at the time, scholars generally agree that Carl was the inventor of the first return-to-checkpoint.


Thought of another:

"The sad thing is he's playing against himself."


You think he's mad now? It's only a matter of time until he finds Farmville.

He's got a big date tonight. I suggested he use a few tic-tacs and he hasn't stopped playing since...

It started with crop circles, but now they're just mocking him!

It was harder to cover up his mistakes when he was playing World of Goo.


"He says it's a combination of naughts and crosses and minesweeper. I tried to tell him that you don't use actual brooms to sweep mines. He didn't believe me. That's why we're sitting back here."


"It doesn't matter how good the graphics are if the replay value stinks."


"Just wait until he unlocks Multiplayer!"


"The power has been back on for 3 hours now. Think we outta tell him he can go back to playin' his Xbox?"


"I don't know what to do. I keep tellin' him if you don't save your game frequently, you can lose hours worth of progress."


"I guess the extraterrestrials were bored of making crop circles."

The bad news is the mice found their way through his defense maze. The worse news is they have a sick sense of humor when it comes to taking his Senzu beans.


Woman: How many times do I have to tell you kids not to play noughts and crosses on my yard!
Kid: But we were playing tic-tac-toe...

glowtmickey December 9, 2010 7:51 AM

"The game looks a bit boring, but the AI is fantastic"

Anonymous December 9, 2010 7:58 AM

You don't have humor.


Violence is a "solution" to everything, right?


"Nothin' more furiatin' than bein beat by a dung beetle."


"This beats Farm Frenzy hands down"

Clipartman December 9, 2010 10:19 AM

"He's one of those hardcore gamers. He can't tolerate casual games."


"Maybe Extreme Tic-Tac-Toe wasn't such a good idea after all..."


Man, all of my good ideas were taken. How about:

"Hey, if you're done with that, do you wanna just play Farmville?"


"I keep tellin' that boy, 'boy, never challenge a broom to nauts 'n' crosses, yer slow enough as is it'."

"And that's why you never plot your seeds in a 9x9 grid around gamers."



"He keeps mumbling something about the only winning move is not to play."

"To think this all started with a game of Global Thermonuclear War in the 80's."

"Just don't ask him if he'd like to play a nice game of chess."

LadyAriana December 9, 2010 12:38 PM

"Could you imagine if he was playing World of Warcraft?"

"Could you imagine if he was playing World of Warcraft and his account got deleted?"



Damn you M.Night! I told you you couldn't film Signs II on my farm!!

Founded1992 December 9, 2010 2:47 PM

"he's trying to get to the secret ending."

"hasn't he leveled up yet?"

"noone teach him sudoku, k?"

"it's much more fun seeing him play against his shovel"

"i was going to ask him if i could join but i changed my mind..."

a few monotone jokes...ill be shocked if one of em wins

Founded1992 December 9, 2010 2:50 PM

Violence isnt the answer...
Violence is the Question! and the answer is YES!



"Well... McGregor was pretty calm about the carrot theft... But now them rabbits are just playing games with him."

"He's more of an EIEIO fellow... He gets ornery when it's just the X's and O's."


Worse than 'Tic-tac-toe' clean-up duty, Bill hated having to use his Quidditch broom to actually sweep something!

Patreon Crew SonicLover December 9, 2010 3:41 PM

"Wow, Jerry was right. The crows ARE getting smarter."



"Seems he's angry 'cause the X's didn't disappear like in Bejeweled."

meester man December 9, 2010 4:19 PM

"He lost to the cat, so technically it's another cat's game, but he's not taking it that way."

"He thinks the download was unsafe."

"He thinks the download had a virus."

"Oh, I am SO submitting this to Greatest Freak Out Ever."

Cheeseable December 9, 2010 4:29 PM

"I wonder what would happen if we told him it came out in 3D..."

"He even switched sides halfway through"


Farmer Brown loses to the chicken. Again.


"Does he know you were kidding about the 30-streak achievement?"

colorbomb December 9, 2010 5:59 PM

...yup those aliens sure know how to play tic-tac-toe...

colorbomb December 9, 2010 6:01 PM

...those crop circles were just the beginning...

colorbomb December 9, 2010 6:03 PM

And what makes it worse is if you look at where he went!

The Logical Ghost December 9, 2010 6:08 PM

"This is why he's not allowed on the computer anymore."

"And this is why we don't crossbreed casual gamers and LARPers."

Cheeseable December 9, 2010 7:13 PM

"Doctor said he should try casual gaming, looks like that's impossible"

Cheeseable December 9, 2010 7:17 PM

"Oooh, so close! Nearly won there!"


"Ya'll can't play TicTacToe here.This is curling country!"

"Dude don't give up! The cow's only won what...5 times?"


"It's sad, really. He seems to think the more times he fails, the more likely a 'hint' or 'cheat' button is going to appear."


"It looks like he checked JiG for a walkthrough. Looks like no one else could figure out tic-tac-toe either."


"Well, Verl...I guess we know where them crop circles came from."

"Hey, Buck, think we should tell him the tractor was out here?"


I should've warned you, Frank. Those pop-up mini-games on his computer really got on his nerves.


"Wait till he sees the next plot. James and I played Battleships there."


"You know, most people say when you play against yourself you always win..."

"He's been trying to get that last achievement for weeks now..."

"He's trying to put the finishing touches on his walkthrough, but he's not convinced he's covered the intricacies of the bonus round."


"It would be nice if his Victory theme wasn't hardcore punk folk music..."


"I told you... there is no happy coin ending!"


"Give it up, Joe. Just check the walkthrough if you don't know what to do next."


"That's not going to change anything. And no, it isn't a glitch."

"Would you just accept defeat already? It's time to log off: the cows have come home."


( I had to chuckle at The Logical Ghost's punchline! My favorite one so far.)


"I bet he's gonna complain about X being over-powered soon..."


"This would be much easier for him if he just checked the latest XKCD comic..."


atomic1fire December 10, 2010 8:32 AM

I think he's having a tic-tac-tantrum.


"Too bad he couldn't save his game halfway through."

"And now that he's failed, he's going to have to erase his save file manually."

"At least this is better for him than a point-and-click adventure. The cow didn't react kindly to that."


He's never understood that the broom power-up doesn't help in this game.


"That's the fifteenth time today Bill has lost against himself in a game of tic-tac-toe. I think he's becoming a sore loser."


"Can You Believe that he lost in Tic Tac Toe 1000 Times already? worst part of it is that he's playing against himself"

snickerless1 December 11, 2010 11:43 AM

"Can you say 'Ragequit'?"


"Dude! That line means you won!"

Ewan Whosarmy December 11, 2010 4:52 PM

"Clyde really hates that Nathan is better at thinking outside the box"


"Nah, he's just practicing for the starring role in Peasant's Quest II"

Ewan Whosarmy December 11, 2010 7:01 PM

"Apparently the local kids found out about his OCD"


"I heard his parents sent him here for some story about a pneumatic winch blewing up the living room because a video game..."


"NO! If only this was a spaghetti contest like they said! I would've win for sure!"


"Well, Ted, I never thought I'd say this, but Tic Tac Toe just became a contact sport."


"AUGH! X and O were here!"

To me thats funny. oh and a really late one for the pnumetic winch. "Hand me the powerup will you?" I know its over but :P

"I am gonna X myself. . ." Find the hidden meaning. if you cant then here.

". . ." Is actually "out of existence. . ." and X is in place of erase.


Sry for double post but another thing. The one before the spoiler, third one, the one after the pnuemenatic winch one, that is also one entry for this entry contest.


"Wait, did i win?"

"Now, time for 4 in a row!"

"All kisses no hugs?"


And to think we were going to set up Plants v Zombies next....


"RAGETIC!" Get it? No? RageTIC instead of rageQUIT lol.

Or can there be lolcat humor? If so, then here. "Iz is awazy X winz and O lozer?"
He he he. . .
Another one again. "IZ THIS XZANTITY OR OZANITY?" Normmal englglish."IS THE XSANITY OR OSANITY?" Instead of insanity or imsanity(:P) it's (X)sanity or (O)sanity.
