In our last post we noted that, owing to the IOC putting its oar in, all participants will have to undergo doping testing before sitting down to play board games.

Another holdover of the IOC rules is that men are only allowed to play men, and women are only allowed to play women. What a pity; just where the playing field ought to be level between the sexes, too.

All the delegations will be asked to bring water from their homeland for the opening ceremony. This will be mixed with the water brought from the other countries. At the end of the Games all delegations will return home with a small amount of the mixture, coming from all over the planet.

They have an official emblem, now, too:

Looks like the Candyland track.
