Good point. Is there any way to keep up with the latest news besides the mailing list and following on twitter?

Tempting. I wonder if they would find that flattering or creepy.


Anyone can game alone, but it is much more fun to game with friends.

I'm pretty sure the answer to that is "Yes".

The likelihood of leaning toward the former could increase by wearing a play/power/draw shirt or bringing Mr. Chomps along.

Or wearing a Mr Chomps tshirt.

Not that I have a Mr Chomps tshirt or anything...


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Given how long it took to get you to wear the last item of clothing I expect the Final Wasteland to be real before that happens!

I totally wore my Mr Chomps tshirt at BGG.con! I also wore my "I Blame Ronway" tshirt. Kregg can confirm.

Although he did request I remove my pants while wearing that last one...

@Killswitch, I don't know, I might be pretty creeped out if a functional cybernetic velociraptor showed up on my doorstep.

There are two main ways a thread gets off track.

The first goes Silverleaf -> Ronway -> Pants.

The Second goes Silverleaf -> Puns.

This one clearly switched lines at the second junction.

Let's put a caboose on the train puns, okay?

In analogy to cookware, is "geekware" a set of implements, containers, and devices that enables one to geek? I like it. I'll have to try a recipe out of my geekbook and invite friends and family to share my geeking.

Omnitron XVI: The latest in geekware components and devices.

The sentient AI learned quickly that in order to best the resilient heroes, it must overtake the fanbase with all sorts of enticing merchandise, and spreading this vast following to the ends of the earth, until all are forced to engage in an all-out war over fandoms and all things geekery*, transforming the masses into mindless zombies craving more.

*Geekery may or may not include Sentinels the lunchbox, Sentinels the breakfast cereal, Sentinels the movie, and Sentinels the flame-thrower.

Well, I wasn't really frying to pun with cooking terms; it was more wordplay. But I ought to know that puns are the creme de la creme around here. I can certainly try to do batter next time.
