Ah life. She is a harsh mistress, no?

Anyhow, I've been gone long enough. I won't bore you with the emo-drama. I'm back now.

For now, I'm going to cover some tournament stuff - what I like, what I don't like, etc.
We'll be starting off with the Ardboyz on the 15th. I wanted to be able to go to the Primer tournament for the NOVA Open, but as that is on the 8th and I had already committed to my wife that the Ardboyz would be the only one this month... well. I could probably get away with it if there wasn't so much to do around the house/garden/yard to get it cleaned/planted/looking nice.
C'est la vie.

Carry on .


  1. There's nothing stopping you trying to drum up another NOVA Primer happening. Unless there is, in which case I look silly now.

    But, you could probably still try. lol

    I plan to try and run 3/4 Primer Events, to try out the system properly.

  2. No probs, brah. Life > dollies.

  3. TKE: How does one run three-quarters of an event? Call the tournament after turn two on the third game?

  4. It's really difficult, but it involves complex equations, a hacksaw, and 3 gallons of brake fluid...oh, and a balloon animal...

  5. @tke

    we used to do a game called "crazy foreign guys" Where we would bable a bit in broken a russian/german combination, interspersed with 3 very plain English words. Then after the last one, laugh like what we'd said was hysterical.

    man, we used to get strange stares from the Frat and sororitutes.

    life wins over dollies man. hands down. We're starting to get requests coming in from around Illinois/Indiana/Ohio for us to come to local tournaments. Mrs. Farmpunk get to override if she wants. Otherwise, I'd be at a tournament every weekend for about 6 weeks.
