Re: Summer Celebration: ToO Game Night!

We're gonna have another go at this. If you're reading this post, please reply if you would attend one of these events if the scheduling worked for you - that is, could we plan on having you come in general , are you personally interested in the idea. If yes, please include in your post any known da...

First Term Reflection

I feel compelled to give a reflection on my first term as an administrator since that's such a meaningful event for a board member, especially one who has been a part of this community for as long as I have. This term has been a truly surreal experience. It took several weeks after I joined the team...

Re: Summer Celebration: ToO Game Night!

Thanks, that is the kind of input I was expecting (and needing) to get from people if they had it. If the day wasn't good was it just that particular date that week, or is a certain day of the week always a bad fit, etc.

Re: Summer Celebration: ToO Game Night!

Only KnittingFun ever showed up all evening. The two of us had fun, but as a community event it was disappointing. Nini already plays games with us on a regular basis, this was intended to bring in some of the folks who don't think to drop by the Chatroom without knowing there's a planned event happ...

Re: Favorite Memories

I'm glad I brought this thread back out, because a few more memories have come to me that I want to reminisce about. Unlike what I mentioned before, which is something I remember very fondly but doesn't really fall in the 'favorite memory' area, these are very much in that category. The first is my ...

Re: rare 'parade of planets' alignment

I got up early this morning to look, it was neat! Mercury was too low to see, it was behind trees, but I saw everything else and as an unexpected bonus I also happened to see the ISS go by too!

rare 'parade of planets' alignment

I'm unfortunately late to post this, so I doubt anyone will see it before the best viewing which is apparently early tomorrow morning, but I'm still sharing for the interested because it should stay relevant for at least a few more days. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn have been aligning i...

Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs 2022

with the losers (big shocker) implying the goal maybe shouldn't have counted. I only heard about that today, it wasn't related to whatever weirdness happened when it was actually scored. The ref somehow just didn't see the puck was in the net or something and so took forever to signal; there was no...

I can't believe I'm announcing this, but I have become the #5 poster on The ToO! :o :thud:

Never in my wildest imagination did I anticipate reaching this position one day.

Summer Celebration: ToO Game Night!

I've been wanting to start hosting a recurring series of ToO game nights for a long time, and seeing how fun the Apples to Apples playtest had been made me determined to finally get one scheduled even though the big picture I have in mind hasn't fully come together yet. Kicking off the start of Summ...

Strange ending with all the players celebrating because they knew, but no goal signal for some reason for a really long time.

Re: Random Tidbit Discussion Thread

McDonald's once tried to sell bubblegum flavored broccoli.
I had never heard about this before, so I assumed it must have been some weird thing they did way back; but it was actually not very long ago!
