Big News

So there it is, tune in on Monday @ 21:00 server time to see Der Green Tide play their 500th ever game against Left My Heart In San Francisco and find out if Zed has to become the Great Gobbo's slave forever (or until Hero invents a new badge that might get Zed out of the situation).

Stay safe.
Self isolate.
Self love.
Avoid jigsaws.

*Gnoblar takes a swig out of a small cup of tea*

"This goblin chap is a PR nightmare for us greenskins. No wonder everyone thinks we are as thick as a dragons hide.

Oh well... best get back to reading my Voltaire."

Az yew got magik teef too?
Posted by Dalfort on 2020-04-24 17:29:50
rated 6 for sound advice on avoiding jigsaws, I would add that other power tools should equally be avoided too...

Good luck for the game!

tldr - I assume this is about you replacing all the communal jigsaws as there are several with missing pieces. I still need to finish the Eiffel tower one!

Laughed out loud, had to explain to my 9-year-old daughter about goblins, coaches with an unhealthy (yet much appreciated) dedication to fluff and common sense. Tough stuff.

i ope yew pointed owt dat goblins ent der same az trolls
Posted by Kondor on 2020-04-24 21:16:33
Like baseball, this game will have to be watched live just for the color commentary.

By the way, down here in Madagascar they are curing the Nurgle thing with some herbs and spices normally used for Malaria. It has to work right? This is the same country that still has seasonal plagues. (Bubonic)
