I have had a lot of fun (and angerGGGGRRRR but in a good way! :D) about this game but yeah I am overloaded at the moment and it is distracting me from the writing I actually am here to do, so I feels ya.

Definitely up for playing another round down the road sometime though.

I've already made a list of the original crew to PM when I start another round. That said, it's been a wonderful experience gaming with you all. I came back to E to run this, and I'm sticking around for the new friends I've made and stories I've started, so thank you all.

I'm really glad you guys enjoyed it so much!

Don't you worry, I promise it will be back soon, in 2 months at most!

In the meantime, I may run a couple rounds of Spyfall or Codenames after the Dungeon Crawl is wrapped up.

Yay. Spyfall is fun. Never played Codenames though.

Codenames is great, it's a word guessing game, an the bigger your vocabulary, the better an edge you have.

I may as well share an awful story. This is from Tuesday, that day I somehow let people drag me out to drink. I may as well mention, I never drink practically. I'm a relatively quiet person IRL who runs a boardgame group for fun. Not one of the cool kids.

Aaaaanyway, so we're playing codenames, and the idea of the game is there are players who are spymasters, and spies. There's a board on the table with a series of randomized words, and the spymasters are trying to get their team to guess as many of their words as possible. They do this by giving a clue that relates to words tagged as theirs, and then a number for how many words it relates to. For example, if I'm trying to get someone guess the words "Dolphin" and "Atlantis", I might give a clue such as "Underwater - 2", being careful that "Underwater" doesn't accidentally make them guess anything else on the board.

So anyway, now that you know the basics, I'm playing this game with my friends, after 2 beers (yes I'm a lightweight, I know), and despite my inebriation, I'm 2 words from winning, and killing it, the other team still has 4 to go. My two words remaining are "Stadium" and "Centaur". You guys may think these are hard words to link, BUT NOT FOR A WORD PRO LIKE ME! I'm so good at this. I confidently give my clue. "Cowboy - 2".

Now, my game group is in North Texas. Even if you have never watched a football game in your life, you've heard of cowboy stadium if you live in the area. They get 'stadium' without any problem. I'm such a good spymaster. The last one is obvious.... so... why is everyone starting at the board, completely confused? Both teams are looking at the available words like I just said something in Martian code. What gives? My team guesses a word. They're so wrong that it's actually the other team's word, meaning they get a point and our turn is over. In some kind of genius power play, they manage to win the game with a 3 word clue. ugh.

So at this point, the entire table wants to know; What was my other word for cowboy?

"Come on guys, it's so obvious." I explain, pointing to centaur.

"How is that obvious?"

"What, are you guys serious? Cow-boy, Centaur, half dude, half cow?"

"That's the wrong taur your moron!" According to a few players, it was the best absolutely wrong reasoning they've ever heard for a word selection in that game. I guess I should feel special. I blame the beer.

And that's why I'm never drinking again. The End.

Our tabletop sessions don't count! I go into them with a plan since I'm the GM, plus I already knew you guys and it's not like we're all sitting at a table. If you guys ever wanted to meet for pizza I'd freeze up. ; (

Heyy guys, I apologize for this, but the friends I visited convicted me somehow to have a few drinks with then even though I never drunk. I thought I'd drop a note and let yall know I won't be able to post until tomorrow at lunch. Sorry to both decapitated and mafia groups, I'll get that post up asap, just not tonight.

Love you guys

Incidentally, I've played Codenames and it's actually legit such a fun game to play. Dead simple and straight-forward and no less fun because of it. Playing it drunk is cracking too. I have a similar story of where my friend is trying to make us guess 3 different words, one of which is "Lawyer" (I can't remember the other ones, but they were along a similar vein) and so he says "Argo". Thinking that we'll instantly get the reference to the film Argo. Meanwhile I go on a spiel thinking "Ohshit, he is CLEARLY talking about the Argo from Jason and the Argonauts, so this is some kind of Greek Myth type of reference". Luckily the others told me to shut up and sit down.

Anyway, a few things.

First of all: thanks TRPG for running these games, they've been crackalacking. I'd like to, as always, put my name forward for any future attempts at starting up some games (of any sort really).

Second of all: everyone else, I am sorry for my vanishing act in this most recent game. I've barely been around E the past week and a bit and so I completely lost track of what was going on. It's a bit shit to so blatantly just go AWOL and not provide any input to the game, so I do apologise for that.

It was actually because of that I was going to say that if there were any other games immediately coming up that I felt I would duck out so that it doesn't happen again. But if the next games aren't going to be a for a little while, I'll hold off on making that decision until the time comes!
