Photoshop: #CommonCoreGames


Over at Twitchy earlier today, they posted a photoshopped image of a board game modified for the Common Core crowd.

Pretty funny stuff, and with that edge of sad truth that makes any photoshop worth doing. It inspired me to create a few #CommonCoreGames of my own. And so, I present to you now ….


First up, Common Core Chess.


In common core chess, everyone is the same color, and the only piece is the queen. Everybody loses!!

Next up, we have the the game that sums it all up in the name:


In No Clue, your job is to try and open the box and remove the contents. Did you do it? YOU WIN!!

Next up, common core’s version of Scrabble, SCRIBBLE!


Spelling schmelling. Ever heard of spellcheck? What’s important, Billy, is how did you feel when you drew on the board?

And of course, the piece de resistance, The Game of Life!


I think it rather explains itself, don’t you?

    While you still can… a chilling sentiment, a fear not unfounded.

    • Galatians, did you see this? This was excellent!

      • John Queue

        I can never share that video enough times. That woman is a hero..

      • Robert A Mitchell

        This was quite an amazing response to implementing Common Core standards in Arkansas. I get the impression the Arkansas School Board ignored her comments. This woman has fortitude for waiting eight hours. God Bless her. Sometimes that is all that is protecting us from harm and she has more backbone than our representatives in the Congress.

        • Well said!
          I don’t know when duckie’s going to be let out of #twitmo Fireplug52, so I’m going to wish you a Merry Christmas now just in case!

        Heck, I have zero years of college and even I can see the idiocy of CC. My granddaughter is in kindergarten and I’m already trying to teach her the times tables. If anyone thinks they’re not important… you’re wrong. I’m 66 years old and can still add, subtract, multiply, and divide in my head. I ‘d bet there are many high school graduates who cannot, and probably some recent college grads that can’t as well.

      • Vorlath –

        WOW! That was impressive. Both her and the amazing stupidity of common core.

      • joyfulgiver

        Yahoo! Well said Karen! In our area, unfortunately, even our private Christian school is in the process of adopting cc, because they fear their (our) students will be “left behind”.

        I have some tough decisions coming, pleasing my child now by allowing him to continue at this private school or pleasing him later when he realizes his home education prepared him for his future without dumbing him down in the process.

        Obviously, this decision isn’t too dificult, if the school continues the way of the world and Common Core, our son will be pulled from the two classes he is currently taking at the private Christian school. We homeschool the other five.

        • Good for you joyfulgiver! Not easy, but good for you and I hope other parents feel the same.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        No, I hadn’t. I’m so glad there are some parents concerned about their kids and I hope they can spread the word about what’s going on! I hope if they are able to make a video themselves, they will be able to use equipment with an excellent mike, as the quality (daughter of a former radio production man) of the sound leaves a lot to be desired. But the quality of content leaves a person wanting to hear more.

        Thanks for sharing – I got a 1st grader and pre-schooler, and this federal education grab is astounding. No shortage of teachers in the school who have NO IDEA what they are teaching or why.

      • OLLPOH

        Telling. Telling it like it is. If you are going to impede the child, then get the he// out of the parents way. We stand with her!

    • OH Thanks K-Bob! I see the tweet for Free Duckie!! Thank you!

      • NYGino

        Need bail $$$ West Coast? I’ll help you out.

        • I wish but that’d be a twitter bribe. They just have something against Conservative Christians 🙁

      • My pleasure!

        (I just noticed my double dip above. I waited and reloaded the page several times and the comment had disappeared. So I re-did it. Now I come back and it’s back again. ?!?!?)

        • lol. Yeah, that’s happened on PolitiChicks too sometimes. Drives some of us nuts when it does that- makes us look like a bunch of spaz’s 😉

          • Dr. Strangelove

            Oh, so it’s not my retar- sorry, developmentally disabled laptop that’s doing it?

  • Looks like Scoop turned off the media attachments. You know, he has to pay for that bandwidth, so it’s good to keep that cost down!

    Anyhoo, check out one of my favorite related “demotivational” posters

  • These are hilarious. Even better than #Pajamaboy! 😀 Dang I wish I could photoshop! Can someone do something with Battleship?!
    Monopoly would be interesting. I can’t photoshop worth beans, but just tweeted these to Caleb and Scoop. I know they stink.
    Comes in Classic Board game

    Or modern

    • LOL If I had more time and talent, this could be so much fun! Thanks for the RT Caleb! 🙂 Appreciate it.

      Monopoly: Every space is Income Tax. If you land on Luxury Tax, it’s because you’re an evil one-percenter, and you automatically lose. All of your assets are then redistributed to the remaining players.

  • A board game that everyone wins. Fun and educational as you learn about your King! 😀

    • A Willful Boy

      That’s a racist dog-whistle reference to “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” if I ever saw one. Are you subtly mocking 0bama’s ancestry?

  • giveususfree

    The Chess game is clearly way racist. It needs larger, black pieces and devil horns on the board to represent colored domination of the evil white world.

  • NYGino

    CLUE……last election 51% didn’t have one.

    • Galatiansch2vs20

      They threw out the Rulebook.

  • Judges718
    • Dr. Strangelove

      Great satire! Love the People’s Cube.

  • You guys have to see this one. It’s bacterial, if not viral.

    A Chuck Norris Christmas greeting:

  • toongoon

    Double the fun with four piece puzzles for advanced common core students

    • LOL!! Ages, -3 and lower 😉

    • Vorlath –

      HAHA 4 pieces. They are numbered on the back too in the correct order, right?

      • Didn’t you read the box, Vorlath? It said “for ADVANCED…”

        They use color coded dots on the back 😉

        • toongoon

          Absolutely right Tex. Numbers only make it harder.

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          Actually, the advance is missing the ‘d’ on the end… the new spelling rules? Or maybe they are saying to common core students that this is for advancement? Beginners start with just two?

    • LOL!!

  • toongoon

    Ok. One more.


    Merry Christmas Scoop, and all the Crew and the keyboarders, and Happpy Happpy Happpy New Year…to You and Yours….

  • Meetmeunderthe

    One-zee so much Fun!!! Everyone wins!

    • Meetmeunderthe

      A former roommate gave me that a year or so ago.


      I had no idea where the heck it came from.

    Common Core Chess. Two white queens for our homosexual jefe. BWAHAhahahahahahaha!

    Actually, if that is truly Common Core, then you can’t use white.
