Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge Smack Talk

I will challenge the other members of last year's League of Dorks, which if I remember correctly was SKK, demomoke, Reddpen, MFalk and Hbomb. Also Hansvon and bomtr. All of this presumes they've made it over here - although I know Reddpen's around. I'll beat you just as bad this year, Frisbee boy. ...

Re: SHC Round 1 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

Not gonna lie, I too was surprised by the predominance of questions about app-based games as opposed to traditional video games. It reminds me of a Cracked article I read recently about the state of the video game industry and how an XBox (or Playstation, I forget) executive lamented over how $1 pho...

Re: SHC Round 1 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

Ha! So I spend a good part of an hour getting my Poe stories mixed up, going "What was the name of that house that fell?..." only for it to be a moo point. Though that first category was lovely :) I certainly hope that you meant to write "moo" point, and that wasn't just a typo. "Moo point" is a ve...

Re: Ideal changes for Season 28

Another point about when they'd increase the values: Unlike before when they raised them when there was no returning champion, now with sky's the limit they'd most likely (unless they decide to raise the values right after an applicable rare event happening) have a champion fall under both the old ...

Re: Ideal changes for Season 28

There is no such thing. In the tournaments, they always get to all the clues during the quarter finals. They do this to give all contestants a fair chance for the wild-card positions. If they can get to all the clues for those games, they can do it for all. It would need some planning (balance a ca...

Re: Lexington auditions

Hey Paul! Yeah, he mentioned seeing you on toddler duty. When he mentioned that I had come up in my head I was wondering if there were any boardies in the room whose ears perked up. That certainly would be a collision of worlds, Woof! Not sure if I want to be present for the inevitable universal imp...
