Bed Bug Plague

Protect-A-Bed continues to skeeve out the citizenry with icky pictures of bed bugs in their subway ads. But now, something new--a free Bed Bug 101 app for smartphones.

It comes complete with tools for identifying, locating, and reporting on bed bugs. Everything you need to gear up for what promises to be the worst bed bug summer ever.

But wait, there's more!

The app also features: "Bed Bug Plague, an exciting new game starring the Protect-A-Bed® Buggersons! ... Place weapons along the path on your screen to help destroy the Bed Bugs before they get to your bed, and earn points and gold along the way." Unfortunately, this is "The only 100% guaranteed way to kill Bed Bugs!"

The game alone almost--but not quite--makes me want an iPhone. For now, I'll stick with the old-school, analog version.

Ha ha ha! Where did you find the Bed Bug board game? I want one, it looks kind of like the board game, Operation.

I've never seen that game with the tweezers - that's worse than Cootie!

i am loathe to admit where i got that game. suffice to say, when you're out in the sticks, sometimes the only place to entertain yourself is at an evil, bargain-basement, big-box store that should never be allowed into NYC no matter how hard it tries.

Cootie! Ants in the Pants was another. how many insect games were there?

I don't remember any insect board games, bugs have always freaked me out, but I have great memories of playing Candy Land as a child!
