You Can Now Own a Copy of Ben Wyatt’s ‘Cones of Dunshire’

The same company behind popular board games including Settlers of Catan have turned their attention to a new, epic contest of cunning, strategy and fantasy conquest: Ben Wyatt’s Cones of Dunshire. The insanely elaborate game was created by Parks and Recreation’s favorite auditor in season six of the show, and has served as a somewhat significant plot device on the sitcom. Now, Parks and Rec fans can own their own copy for the small price of $500, via this Kickstarter campaign. If you’ve seen Ben’s original, homemade version of the game, then you’ll understand why it’s so expensive. As Polygon notes, the pieces and playing surface are so huge that they might have to be shipped in a giant wooden crate. On the Kickstarter page, Mayfair Games explains,

Is the whole thing a joke? … Yes and no, but mostly no All along, this game has represented the ridiculousness of Ben Wyatt’s vision of a game … This Deluxe version of the game is as close to the on-screen version of the game that you see in season six of Parks and Recreation as we can manage (and for us to be comfortable about the playability of it) … This is designed for a select group of people that want the large-scale souvenir of the show and the game, and is not aimed at casual game fans.

Happy pledging everyone, and remember, it’s about the cones
