    Hmm. I'm with Gabe. If you're not illiterate, then how can you not understand the totally balanced and clearly outlined rules for initiative?
    Each player empties all money from their wallets to the middle of the table. All players roll one 6-sided die to determine nomination based on lowest roll. Once a player has been nominated, that player takes all the money from the middle of the table and goes out to the nearest supermarket. Once there, the nominated player must find an item whose price, plus tax, is within a dollar of the amount collected from the middle of the table. When the nominated player returns, the item is passed around the table and inspected by all players. The player who performs the most sexually foul act with the purchased item that causes all other players to not want to contend for initiative goes first.
    Clear. Fucking. Cut.

    Yeah, I get that. But general guidelines might help too, like maybe if the closest store is an Asian market than eliminate durians from the list.
    We all stand while playing now.

    Not being able to play this is my one regret about not attending PAX East this year. But, the alternative is, y'know, an ice kingdom from where there's no return.

    But that's the beauty of being the nominated player who rolled the lowest number (with the option of item choice...and from what I googled, a durian is only like 5-10 USD, so there are plenty of alternative items to buy at an Asian market).
    The fact that you all took turns with the durian proves that none of you tried hard enough to make it unappealing to the others in a mini-game of one-upmanship and the rules are not to blame.
    Remember, just because you put all your cash on the table to start doesn't mean you can't use a credit card to hire a late-night street-walker.

    In the forum view just hit the quote button at the bottom of the post. To do it manually just wrap the text you want to quote in
    [quote="person being quoted"]blah blah[/quote]

    I think I am old, I laughed at the comic, then spent 5 minutes obsessing about how that kid at the table probably couldn't tell Donatello from Michelangelo.

    Easy - Donatello's early Renaissance, Michaelangelo's High Renaissance.

    Michael Bay made a new version of the turtles, so pretty sure that most young people who would bother to wear the shirt probably know who they are. Now even as a child of the 80s who watched the cartoon on occasion, I don't remember who's who anymore, except who April O'neil is. But I'm also not the sort of person who'd bother to wear a ninja turtles t-shirt.

    I've been posting under the comic this whole time because I keep forgetting it shows up here, too. >.< lol Thanks for the help.

    Let me break it down for you.

    Leonardo leads. Donatello does machines, which is a fact. Raphael is cool but rude, so we generally give him a break. Michaelangelo is a party dude.

    Cowabunga.

    The only thing I know about the comics is that Usagi Yojimbo made a guest appearance in them. Truly, the radicalest of comics.

    I would, if I found one.

    I absolutely wear it.

    Target has been selling Reptar shirts for a while...I saw it once when I didn't have my plastic with me, but goddamn if I didn't buy it the next time I was at Target with no other objective coming first.
    I had a TMNT shirt when I was a kid, and I'm sure it got given away to Goodwill once I outgrew it, but I don't care if it would look like a halter top and basically strangle my neck in trying to wear it: I would if I still had it. Nostalgia gives zero fucks about what others think, if you have or find something you cherished above all else in your youth, you're going to sport it and be damn proud of it.

    e: I'm kind of amazed at how the conversation morphed from the comic to where we're currently at.
    e2: that's also a good reason to play games sober. In an altered state, unless you know how to play the game already, you're fucked for actually figuring out how to play because tangents always happen (at least, in my own experiences).

    The TMNT have a current television show on Nickelodeon, it is not as good as the show from 2003, but it isn't the most awful thing on TV either. I would think the Turtles were a big enough sensation to be known even if that wasn't true though.

    TMNT never stopped being popular with kids. For decades they've had a show on the air more often than not.

  • RatherDashing89RatherDashing89 Registered User regular
    I'm pretty sure just about all 1st world kids know who the TMNT are. Most of them know Scooby Doo, for crying out loud.
