An art gallery in Santa Monica is running an exhibit called Gallery 1988 (http://www.nineteeneightyeight.com/home). At this exhibit are many pieces of art and several of them pertain to the movie Ferris Bueller's Day off. As a child of the 80's I enjoyed Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I still quote the movie from time to time. I also enjoy art for art's sake. Art can take the form of anything it wants. At the exhibit a couple of noteworthy Ferris pieces include the picture above and the piece pictured below.
For those of you who pay attention to BGG you may have noticed the Ferris Board Game has made it into the "Hotness" section. I think they made the wrong decision in accepting this piece of art as a board game listing. The direct listing for the Ferris print is listed here http://nineteeneightyeight.com/index.php/prints-maxdalton-boardgamesmall.html. What is being sold for $100 is a giclee print on archival paper. When this is purchased the artist will send you the print with game pieces and rules. The game play is a simple roll and move and, in my opinion, is an ironic take on mainstream games of the period. If pieces of art are allowed on BGG then anyone could take a crap in a box, write anything they want and call it rules and game play. Maybe I'll submit some used car parts to BGG I'd like to sell, throw in a couple dice, and a rule book and save my self the listing fees on ebay.
Listing this on BGG as a game not only opens the door to posting any whimsical object on the geek it also allows the horde of game players to unfairly criticize and compare this to other games.
