The Game is Nirtz. So what else is Nirtz?

I have never played The Game is Nirtz by Ideal, I have never even seen the game in person. Instead I have only seen pictures and read about it online. I do like abstract games though and The Game is Nirtz seems pretty straightforward. In the game two opposing players move numbered pieces around a board trying to line up 7 tokens across the board. The twist is you can only move each piece the number of spaces that are indicated on the piece. So a # 2 piece can move 2 spaces. Seems pretty straightforward.

A photo of the game box recently appeared in the Retroist Image Pool, where it was added by Christian Montone.

Okay the real reason I wanted to bring this game up is because I think the word Nirtz needs to be brought into common use and I was wondering if it should mean good? bad? weird? I think it sounds bad or weird, but that’s why I think it should mean awesome as in “This deep fried macaroni and cheese with hot dog pieces in it is nirtz!”

    I’d go with nirtz meaning something that seems simple at first but then turns out to be a bit more challenging.
