Kung-Fu CB Mamas on Wheels vs. the Aztec Motorcycle Wrestling Nuns

The Tower of the Archmage had a post recently which jarred a memory.

Alex Yeager, who I vaguely knew in college through the gaming club, is living the dream, working in the gaming industry.  But back in the day, he wrote a game (the title of this post) based on a joke-character sheet from a gaming magazine (the Space Gamer, I believe).  The character sheet had spaces for various nonsensical attributes and equipment (I recall a detailed ice cream record, which included toppings, cones, etc.).  It was either inside an April issue or printed on the mailing wrapper; I’m not sure as I’ve only seen photocopies, not the original.  But apparently the glove was dropped.  With nothing more than a wacky character sheet and and the name “Kung-Fu CB Mamas on Wheels vs. the Aztec Motorcycle Wrestling Nuns,” Alex (and perhaps some collaborators?) devised a game, pitting the two groups against each other.  It was quite a feat of reverse game engineering, and I think it was run regularly at BASHCon, the convention run by the University of Toledo gaming club.

I heard him explain the premise, which involved a future world where the density of human population was such that all women’s cycles became synchronized.   And one day, while all world’s women were PMSing, one man made some foolish remark that sparked a murder, and in soon it was genocide against all males everywhere…  (This is probably science fantasy — women living in close proximity, like convents, do report such synchronicity.  I’m too lazy to research women’s prisons but I suspect they don’t have riots every fourth week.)   Anyway with only women left on the earth, things still weren’t quite as peaceful as you’d think.  I don’t recall any more details but obviously the end result was a world (or at least a region, no doubt the around Nevada or Texas) of Aztec wrestling motorcycle gangs and roving convoys of high-kicking trucker mamas.  Were they fighting over a few remaining males, destined to be the concubines of the mamas, or sacrificed to the Aztec gods?  Were they fighting over territory, or are they just natural enemies?  I’ll have to get back in touch with Alex to find out.

Apparently Alex wasn’t the only guy who was inspired by this joke, though.  Among the cobwebbiest tubes of the interwebs I found this song.

I just have to go to BASHCon next year.  I wonder if Alex is still running Kung Fu CB Mamas on Wheels vs. the Aztec Motorcycle Wrestling Nuns…
