  4. ahh xs xs xs, how apropos cause geez this portrayal is indeed an excess. When I first saw their launch pictures on partyaccess.net I remember thinking oh my goodness what is this, but I've since given them a second look and just viewed their site and maybe their portrayal isn't the atrocity that I initially thought it to be. Albeit I couldn't see myself playing in 5 of their 6 sections. Their life section (orange & green) is actually pretty cool, both the male and female. I'd really love to know what the deal is with xs playing a purple, black & silver section every year since their inception though, I'm really thinking it can't be a coincidence and it'd be nice to get the story behind that. So while I don't think their portrayal will be selling out anytime soon, if at all, I do think they will get their numbers because not everyone is necessarily a fan of the new trend in costumes, you know the just4fun and red international type. So there is a place in our carnival for bands like xs but they just really needed to clean up and refine this portrayal. And by the way the name Games We Play is a very unexciting way of saying what they're portraying but I guess the name is the least of this portrayal's problems. It may just be that at 27 I may be a little too young but I'm really not familiar with some of these games that we supposedly played, like snow snake and bokwele , and as far as I know life and battleship are international board games, that's all well and good since we indeed played them but what about games like rounders, marbles, ring games, jump rope, cricket and football for instance. All in all I'm not really impressed or excited by this portrayal.
