Hey purp,

All my stuff is in Canada, so I'm borrowing an undead team of cribble, but don;t have a board or any of the other stuff you want us to bring. Is this gonna be an issue or can I freeload?

So long as half the coaches bring boards, that's fine. Smile

Well he hasn't played UK TT before right? So I doubt he'll have a darker and 2 placement jugs. They'll be difficult to comeby at this late stage. Sad

Crib, I have my hat, coat, and most importantly, wallet. That's about it.

Just read the thread.
Have a great time there all. Drinking night should be great too. Shame I won't be able to meet up Chewie. I will sup some extra ale in honour of you all Saturday.

It's done!

Massive thanks to the FUMBBL guys who made it, it was a pleasure to see / meet you all. Hope some of the less active TTers make more events in the future!

pythrr and Leipziger (Leipziger_Waterbowl here) won the day with Undead and 'Flings, with a team of Hitonogashi (Lizards) and Zoglug ('Flings) squeaking second on bonus points. Chewie won the individual prize (Elves) , and Cribble best painted (brilliant Ogres). Lastly, dontcallmeflossy! rounded off an impressive FUMBBList performance with a stunty cup win (Ogres).

Big thanks to all - and if I run these rules again, I'll know to be less conservative when it comes to plonking FUMBBLers in the top half. Wink

I'm sure Crib will take you a photo if he sees this - he's a long drive ahead of him tonight though. They were super!

And some words from me.

-------


Cam Dub (Cambridge, UK), aka Pythrr experiments on TTers.

-------

Forza cheesey undead! [OBBA Deadies]

Game 1: a 1-0 win (4-1 cas) vs Flings (with Zara, coached by Alex from London)

Game 2: a 1-1 draw (1-4 cas) vs Lizzies (nice guy called Grant)

Game 3: a 2-0 win (2-3 cas) vs Chewie's Pro Elfs. Chew kindly brought his OBBA dice and proceeded to get thwanked.

So, after a win (over flings), a draw (vs. Lizzies), and a win (a real life dicing of Chewie's pro elfs!), what will happen on day 2....

so, day 2...

Game 4: 2-1 win (3-1 cas) over Stabby Delfs

Game 5: 2-1 win (3-0 cas) over Andy (Hawk)'s Skaven. Dice liked me in both games 4 and 5.

Game 6: 1-1 draw (1-3 cas) vs Gavin (the 4-armed machine)'s Humans.
To be honest, and no disrespect to the other 5 opponents (except Chew, of course), this was the only game in which I felt I was in danger of losing. Gavin was pretty damn good, and I had to be both good (in the first half) and lucky (in the second half - well, T16) to grab a draw.

so... 4 wins, 2 draws: not a bad weekend. Unbeaten (the only one of 28 coaches to do so, I think).

My able partner (Alex Leipziger) and myself, with a combined 6 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss, took home the team trophy.

Gratz also to Chewie who took home the best individual trophy with a 5-0-1 record (altho I would note that his one loss was to his OBBA colleague, ie: me).

Was a fun weekend, excellently organized by Goo and Smee (/applause), in which I got to have a drink with Chewie and Flibble (OBBA ftw!), meet Goo and Hitonogashi (good luck in Toronto, Joe), and a load of other nice folks.

Was also nice to see OBBA represented well, turning up and going home with almost all the stuff. /cheer

Thanks again to P-Goo and everyone who was there. Much fun was had.

Oh, and goo, you know I'm rubbish, and deserved to be in the bottom draw. Wink

There was another undefeated coach iirc, but you still did ace. Smile

Wish I could have been there. Thanks to t'Goo for running what I'm sure was a grand old shindig.
