“…all I’m saying is that vanilla has a much deeper flavor profile than it’s given credit for. If you really wanted to name a varient of a game after something that’s no frills and straight to the point, you should call it ‘chocolate’ or something” Higgs continued.

Six for each of you, DK and Pepper.

Intended deadline is Monday night at 9 Central. Let me know if this is unrealistic and I’ll extend for a day.

Also, you’re allowed a jury plea as well. I’d make a word limit, but Novak isn’t in the final two so we’re probably good. The jury plea will be posted below the answers on the post.

Thus spake Christina Pepper:

For such a weird prompt, we ended up with some stories that were fairly grounded in reality (okay, one was a spy story, but it wasn’t bloated and extravagant). Three very different attacks made for a fun last read.

Thanks to Bernice Nicaise for being our gatherer this season, and to Brendan Bonham and Matthew Gilman for being just as irritatingly judgmental as I am, thus allowing this whole thing to work.

Are we not drawn onward, we few, drawn onward to new era?

Man, religion brings out the best in this crew every time. I wanted another medal to give. Gilman said the same. Brendan didn’t say it specifically, but he probably sent me a nonverbal cue that I should have noticed.

With the stories as strong as they were, scoring was a very interesting 9-6-6-6 affair (666 in the religious challenge…ahem).

Enjoy.

So, here’s the deal. With but a single signup mention on one of my FB groups, I already have eleven classically Facebook-game players signed up. I don’t even know a few of them. As such, I’m leaning toward doing two games at once with the same challenges running. Idiotic? Sure! However, if a ton of people from here sign up, that won’t be necessary.

I have a lot of weird ideas for this one, so play along, won’t you? Declare intent wherever you usually talk to me, and as always (perhaps more than ever), if you have a new player of even middling potential, let them know as well.

It’s also an option for me to just run a game over there, while allowing you guys to play if you like, while we run a few Cutthroat Junction games and…oh, I don’t know…Werewolf. It all depends on signup numbers, which have been a bit thinner here in the last year or so.

Is this the earliest I’ve ever had all votes? I’d say there’s a good chance of that.

Vote One: Zack Sauvageau.

Vote Two: Jonathon Pope.

Vote Three: Zack Sauvageau.

Vote Four: Jonathon Pope.
