THE AMERICAN WAY: Why Bother Drilling?

Posted by jadecanary on June 27, 2008

Mom and Dad are sitting in the living room watching CNN. They are watching Barack Obama making a speech about why America should not drill for oil off of the coast of Florida when little Billy walks into the room…

Obama: “…no short term benefits, since it would take at least ten years to get any oil.”

Little Billy stands there for a moment listening, then approaches his father.

Little Billy: “Daddy, why do I have to go to school?”

Dad: “Because you will receive a good education. Then you can get a great job and make lots of money so that we can retire.”

Little Billy: “Why bother? There are no short term benefits of my education, and I am not helping the family now.”

Dad: “Go to bed.”

Little Billy: “But isn’t that what Mr. Obama just said?”

Dad: “GO. TO. BED.”

BENDING STEEL CHALLENGE: Salvation Run

Posted by jadecanary on June 26, 2008

BENDING STEEL CHALLENGE: SALVATION RUN

This is a knock-out tournament. You lose, you are out. Golden Age constructed, The Secret Society and Underworld are Banned, as well as MOR-207: Overpowered. MUN cards are not legal.

here’s the kicker: If you win, you don’t shuffle your KO pile and RFG cards back into your deck. They remain in those zones throughout the tournament. Like the villians trapped on the prision planet in the Salvation Run mini-series, you have what you came with, you use it, you lose it, and if you lose, you die.

The winner will get the hobby league top prize. There is no entrance fee.

EDIT: I was thinking about it while delivering the mail today. In wrap up, if it is determined that you have won the game, you must put each face-up non-ongoing Plot Twist in your resource row into your KO pile. This keeps with the theme of Salvation Run.
