Twitter darling and Mitt Romney scourge Rob Delaney is looking to take his fame to the coffee table.

Delaney shot to fame with his funny, often outlandish Twitter activity and he's now set to release a board game "centered around hundreds of Rob's most entertaining tweets." The gist, according to Amazon, is that players will read Delaney's tweets "aloud as you race around the board identifying 'who wrote what' and battling to see which player's words are the funniest." 

The game, called "Rob Delaney's War of Words," is made by All Things Equal, a board game maker with a little history in Internet-fame-based products. The company previously released a game based on Awkward Family Photos.

The Delaney effort seems like it might be a little complicated. Pieces include a game board, playing cards, voting chips, an answer pad, and a custom die. 

"No knowledge of Twitter is required!" screams the Amazon description, taking care to note that the game "contains naughty words." After all, Cards Against Humanity is doing all right for itself with all those not-so-family-friendly references.

In seriousness, it's an interesting move for Delaney as he looks to capitalize on his Twitter stardom. He has more than 750,000 followers, and we named him the second-most influential person in the community last year.

The game's out in May, and Delaney's legions of fans are already counting down the days.

"Can't wait to play this with the church fam," wrote Hiland Chamblee.

"Five minutes ago, I had no idea this existed. And now, I can't imagine living in a world where this DOESN'T exist," commented Kevin Bannon.

"It says your product dimensions are 3.5 x 10.5 inches. Not bad … ," joked Todd Wessendorf.

"Oh God, I can only imagine how lame is going to be. *Preorders it anyway*," tweeted Cassis Chaos.

It's just a pity Delaney's not using his infamous Twitter profile photo on the box.
