proof my local game store is the best



Ladies and gentlemen, the Armored Gopher Games official Total Party Kill board!  In my defense of my puny score, keeping the tally only begun with the move to the new location and I scored at least 2 TPKs at the old store.  Also, I'm pretty good at killing everybody but one survivor and that's just not good enough to count here.

Someone explained the asterisks by Jared, Chris M. and Jake's TPKs, but I've forgotten what the deal was.

  1. That's pretty awesome. Though I still think MY game shop is the best...they've been the first folks to commit to purchasing my new book!

  3. Someone tried to start one of these at Bookery Fantasy here in Dayton, but I don't know what became of it.

  4. TPK's = D&D's version of a sports blooper reel :)

  5. Asterisks by Chris and Jared are because of a "house rule" that states if there is a TPK while someone is absent, the absent player is killed by default.

    The Asterisks by Jake's name are as follows: It was his last game at the store before a move AND it was Cthulu.

  6. This is why I'll never get the old school mindset.

    We've always noted how many times we saved the world, not killed the party.

  7. @ Loquacious: Was it a Cthulhu in a dungeon?

    @ Barking Alien: Old School Mindset: The world doesn't need saving, but the characters need to save themselves! ;)

  8. Damn, I wish there was a game store still open in my area! I'll take anything right now - even that snobbish hobby shop that hated gamers (who also had the brilliant idea that folks still played historical wargaming, and put a lot of capital onto it), or that game store that was like a daycare center for rabid Pokemon fans (who also treated their adult customers like children)! Well, I can't think of a good reason why they when out of business? XP

  9. @Blair: I honestly don't know. I thought it was a wooded area behind a manse, but I could be mistaken.

    The funny part is that in our group/game scene, the POINT of Cthulu is for everyone to be dead (or insane); so to accomplish such was sort of (in a very silly, totally friendly but mocking way) "less legitimate" than a traditional TPK.

    word verification: cookiess -Jake passed out Cthulu cupcakes and Cthulu cake pops at said last game. He shoulda brought COOKIESS!

  10. Just in there this weekend. Really tried to find something to buy, but couldn't. The used game shelf was pretty picked over.

    Almost got the "Small World" board game from Days of Wonder. May still go back and get it later.
