A short one-move tribute game with some entertaining responses, May 15, 2020
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

This game was entered in the Emily Short Anniversary Contest.

It's a sequel of sorts to Pick Up the Phone Booth and Die, Aisle, and Pick up the Phone Booth and Aisle.

Like those games, this game is centered on having silly or weird responses to individual actions you can choose. These games usually require a ton of different actions to see all of the content, but this game isn't quite as expansive as the others. There are a few references to Emily Short and the contest.

Layers of parody and imitation, February 6, 2022
by Cody Gaisser (Florence, Alabama, United States of America, North America, Earth, Solar System, Milky Way, Known Universe, ???)

Don't Push The Mailbox 2 And Aisle is an homage to a game called Pick Up The Phone Booth And Aisle (itself an homage to the joke game Pick Up The Phone Booth And Die and the one-turn game Aisle); it is also the sequel to Don't Push The Mailbox (itself an homage to Pick Up The Phone Booth And Die).

The original joke of Pick Up The Phone Booth And Die was good, but not so hilarious as to warrant endless sequels, parodies, and homages. Its humor was mostly in its simplicity, and that simplicity is lost even in the best of the imitators (Pick Up The Phone Booth And Aisle).

Don't Push The Mailbox 2 is just way too many degrees separated from the original joke.
