From all of the gnomes to all of you, merry Christmas!
Here’s our gnomish mascot (well, one of them anyway — I know he has mascot buddies in other gnomish households) settling in a for a little light holiday reading.
We’re departing from one tradition this year: Instead of running reposts for the holidays, we’re running a series of excellent guest articles. The first, The Handmade, Super-Simple Wizard Tower Tile Set, went up yesterday.
Whatever holiday you celebrate, we wish you well. Thanks for reading!
Synnibarr? That must have been one naughty gnome.
No kidding, Holy_Skwervo. That game made my friends create a new rule for attending conventions: never buy a game on Sunday. One friend was so out of it by Sunday that he thought this was actually a good game.
Eventually, Synnibarr was included in a sell off of games at our FLGS. The store didn’t want it. My friendâ€”not the one who originally bought it, but the one who ended up keeping itâ€”said, “You might not be buying it from me, but it’s not leaving this store with me.” The store accepted that.
I love my copy. There’s nothing quite like it, and whether I ever play it or not I’ve already gotten a great deal of amusement value out of it.
I love the illustration of the bazooka-toting raccoon *checking his watch*.
“Look, pal – if we don’t hit that armored car soon they’re gonna empty the dumpster behind Pizza Hut before I get there.”
Particularly notable because the talking raccoons are described as peaceful creatures. 😉
