Does anyone want to play Failed Cunard/White Star Line Ships? It’s a dumb game but there doesn’t seem to be much else going on here. (Please see details)
Like the Titanic. It was White Star Line ship … but these ships will be fictional.
1. The name of the ship
2. The defining characteristic of, or a description of the ship
3. Why the ship was a failure
Name: The Bulemic
Characteristic/Description: This was Cunard’s one foray into niche marketing; in trying to serve a particular demographic
Reason for failure: Both the kitchen staff and the ship’s plumbing were overwhelmed by the monumental amount of binging and purging that the passengers engaged in on the ships maiden voyage.
Name: The Mimic and her sister ship, The Cryptic.
Characteristic/Description: Built after the sinking of Cunard’s Lusitania by a German U-boat in 1907, both ships were painted with a revolutionary type of cloaking coating to prevent another such disaster
Reason for failure: Both the Mimic and the Cryptic were lost at sea on their maiden voyages. The Mimic blended into the ocean so well that they lost track of it for months and when they finally located it the rescue ship collided with it and both ships were lost. What happened to the Cryptic remains a mystery to this day
I told you it was a dumb game.
Bonus points for anyone who comes up with a -tania, like the Lusitania, Mauritania, Aquatania, etc.
