Homemade Board Game

This is all the rage at the Temple home these days. It's a homemade board game with rules so complicated I can't follow it all but the kids seem to understand it as they play happily for hours on end. Zachary tells me he is "Oz boy," there are pirates and Merlin is somehow involved. Players gain and lose "HP" fighting all the bad guys. Food and water levels are critical as well as the players attack the "Castle of Doom," sometimes shortened to "Cassadoom." The game is at times competitive, at times cooperative. It's the perfect game, really. I just have one question: These boys living in my house, where did they come from?
