I roll 3/4 of a die across the board, squint at the outcome, then decide to attack Marcus' Luxembourg with my Peloponnesian naval fleet.

I am destroyed instantly by the coast and curse colorfully.

Since we're in deterministic mode, the loss of my entire fleet changes the outcome of the Peloponnesian War, ending it 10 years early.

Marcus Bales
07-30-2007, 08:34 PM
So now I've got 2 million pickles and a three thousand dollar a month refrigeration problem? How fair is that? Y'all are ganging up on me just because I'm ahead. Well, since I'm still ahead it's still my turn. I donate the pickles to the New York Deli Society and write a quarter million bucks off my 2007 taxes. That makes me bartender, too, so if any of you want a drink, start counting your change and sucking up.

brightpearl
07-30-2007, 08:44 PM
Well, if my favorite bartender is serving, I'll have a Transparent Fantasty, please, darling. ;)

If you're all out of lemons, I'll have a Knocking Willie. Practically the same thing anyhow.

Everybody take a drink when someone rolls a party hat!

Marcus Bales
07-30-2007, 08:48 PM
Why not one of each? A Transparent Fantasy AND a Knocking Willie, side by side. What do you call that? It's a Bill Clinton In The White House, of course. Order it by name.

In the meantime, my turn again, since I'm still in the lead. I open a Coke for myself, drop in a slice of lemon to show I was raised on the East Coast, and give a significant wink to the sultry woman beside Brightpearl, who leaves a folded newspaper on the bartop as she takes her Lisping Igor to a table.

Anyone want to bid on what's in the folded newspaper, sight unseen?

brightpearl

You're just trying to get me tipsy so you can steal my Pandora's ace.

I met a sinister looking Russian at the roulette table in Monaco, he offered me an opportunity in Caspian oil futures. I’m bank rolling him. In exchange he tracks Marcus down and gets most of the money back, I don’t ask how he did it, don’t think anyone wants to know. Off to play Bunco! Then flying to the UK for a late night sup!

Marcus Bales
07-30-2007, 09:22 PM
I kill the Russian and take on his identity and travel to Monaco to get Anna even drunker with my special concoctions and deleterious potions. Luckily for me his offshore bank account had a million and a half in it, and I'm able, by only meeting her in dim light and keeping my hat pulled low over my features, to get Anna to accept me as the Russian. I'm so successful at passing myself off, and she's so happy to get money back, that she gives me another assignment, this one involving the Land Down Under and a poster who shall remain nameless but whose initials are Hyakujo's Fox.

lukkucairi
07-30-2007, 09:27 PM
using the flucitasone propionate back-handling formation, I divert the wasp stinger attack toward Marcus, who is busy counting Hyakujo's Fox toes, and finding that there are eleven of them.

Anna
07-31-2007, 12:56 AM
Recapping the evening.
Now that I believe Marcus is out of the way the Russian and I fly to London to celebrate. We sup at the Pigalle Club. Starting with an appetizer of fresh snails in garlic sauce, I order tanqueray on the rocks, he orders a vodka martini, extra dry. For the main course I have the pan fried sea bream with artichokes and caper dressing, he orders the Scottish rib-eye stake with bordelaise. We skip desert. I tell the Russian I am sending him on another mission, this time to Oz. He is to meet with an eccentric; some say genius, others mad. His initial H.F. I believe this individual has access to a very important and secret document. I tell him the code word are, "One that lies under the fig tree." I emphasize not to forget those words, least he is attacked by a wasp stinger. I discreetly slip him the plane tickets while giving him a cheery da svedonya as we part. As I make my way over to the Savoy I get the distinct feeling I am being followed…

Now that CH is Elvis, that means Mik is clapping for the right team, and that explains why 8 pm came and went and no Rounding Pin action. "You will all go to your respective Valhallas. Do not pass "Go", do not collect two hundred dollahs." First one to identify the quote becomes the dealer.

07-31-2007, 03:58 AM
Passing pistachio pancakes to oneself is allowed in the French rules, but we are not playing by French rules, so I will take "Obscure Songs about Nuclear War not sung by Sun Ra" for $500, Alex.

*straps on cleats*

Awright, I will sing "Brown Eyed Girl", but I am not taking my top off (freaking Scandanavian rules..), so I'll just forfeit the squid locker.

And if anyone lets the monkey off the leash, there'll be hell to pay.

Marcus Bales
07-31-2007, 10:17 AM
Diagonally doesn't count in Scandinavian Rules, remember?

All right, I'm still winning, so it's my turn again. Anna is just about drunk enough on first-class airline liquor to ask what the "mile high club" means, but those rooms are small, and the experience is not improved by wearing cleats, so I'm not sure what, if anything, will happen, especially since I see out the window that Somebody who Claimed to be good with Magic Crystals isn't doing too well against the Dragon of the East, which means that just about the time Anna is exclaiming prettily "But it's so small and soft!" the pilot will be jerking the plane around the sky trying to avoid getting caught up in it, so I close the window shade, strap the seatbelt tight around Anna, and get out the old Mobius strip so I can slip up behind the Dragon of the East and dump the load of eggplant on it which ought to surprise it enough that 'Zormix will be able to cleat up.

I get 15 points for helping and 150 points for noble restraint.

woo hoo!

brightpearl
07-31-2007, 10:18 AM
In my experience, noble restraint results in a net loss of points.

Marcus Bales

Marcus Bales
07-31-2007, 10:36 AM
Nice tackle --- Ten points. Minus eleven points for not having your cleats on. Plus, since theres a stone in the right-hand jar, now that you've recuperated the oblong you also have to square it.

T.I.P.
07-31-2007, 10:39 AM
according to the scandinavian rulebook i have no obligation to square the oblong as long as i am wearing a yellow nightcap

I told you guys, nuthin' happened! I saw 'Zormix struggling with the Dragon of the East and I strapped Anna in. There was no groin pulling going on. None. And especially not any nasty groin pulling. Ftphbbbbt.

But it's my turn again, and I import my points from the Advice thread and go even further ahead. When Anna and I land in Sydney we check into the hotel -- in seprate rooms! don't get any funny ideas! -- and then I take her out, my treat, to Chuck E. Cheese.

So everyone be extra careful -- wild particles hogtied with rebar wire can be very dangerous because they tend to get away. Until somebody unfurls the spinnaker, that is. If no one gets to it tonight, and I can convince Anna to pay for the trip, we'll sail out of Sydney Harbor and see if we can catch a good breeze tomorrow. Until then, foil hats on!

Still in the UK.
Walking back after dinner, with what I thought was the Russian, I had the feeling I was being followed. Nearing the entrance to the Savoy I felt a gentle tap upon my shoulder, turning round fast I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Stepping back to get a better field of vision, I rubbed my eyes; it was none other than David Bowie. He motioned me to come closer, I heisted, he smiled and whispered, “Listen.” I drew closer and listened to what he had to say. "That’s all I needed to hear," I thought, and instantly knew exactly what had to be done. He then handed me a purple wig and a very long scarf, gave me a wink and a nod and was off. I rushed to my room to make proper arrangements. Gathering all that I needed, I took the secret elevator from the penthouse suit to C floor. Knowing now of Marcus’ ruse I decide there was no alternative, I had to send the evil twin lizard brain annA to Sydney to keep an eye on the shark; least he find the legendary fox before I did. In no time flat annA was at the airport, ticket in hand and ready to board the flight to Oz; we would communicate telepathically. Meanwhile, I picked up my tickets for the Paris shuttle in the morning in order to meet with Dr. tip. Taking a taxi back to the hotel, exhausted, it was nice to find a warm cup of chamomile tea, a basket of oranges waiting, along with premella mints on my pillow. Turning on the telly, BBC2 was having a Red Dwarf marathon. I fell asleep shortly.

Well you don't expect someone named "Fox" to be standing at the airport with a card reading "Here I am, Anna" on it, do you. Even though we thought we got glimpses of him talking to others in this place or that place, we couldn't seem to find him to put our proposition to him. Tired and sweaty, we went back to our respective rooms at the hotel, Anna and I. It was nice to find coke in the room fridge and lemons in the basket with a paring knife. I had a coke and lemon slice and turned on the TV. A Blackadder retrospective! Ah, what could be better. But before I relaxed, I snarfled the hopscotch in case there were any telepaths about. I fell asleep.

hmmm... herumpf

Meeting with Dr. tip in Paris was educational to say the least. His best selling books, '1001 Your Ways; Cottage Cheese An Intimate Look' and Cube Your Tomatoes, Before It’s Too Late, are both highly acclaimed and respected books on French cuisine, poetry really. A survey was taken a few years back and they discovered that at least one of his books is in every Paris kitchen. Though our meeting was brief, we sat outside the café du trocader; I had a dbl. caf. cafe latte, a warm croissant with a fresh bowl of berries in cream, he had the eggs sardou and the house blend tea; funny thing about the French, there’s never any ketchup on the tables. He was kind enough to dig out a very old and blurry photo of The Fox. I looked at it long and carefully, then sent the image to my twin in Sydney, telepathically. Afterwards, I took a stroll on Les Champs Elysees and found my way over to the right bank. Walking into Dandois and Perrin's rare antiques an usually situation occurred, I’ll save the details for later, in short I ended up talking to the chief executive of the Union de Banques Suisses, who also happen to be an extended cousin to the Pope. Dumb luck? I think not.

after the exquis lunch with ms. anna I have redonned the lucky sweatband and tennis shorts that I wore during my first hunt for The Fox (or Le Renard as he is known here in the country of the rising baguette). The Fox is one of those evanescent characters who has always managed to slip through the web of authority, some say he may even have the gift of ubiquity. That would explain how managed to escape an all points bulletin put out by Interpol in order to nab him on his way out of Tunis in 1982 and simultaneously write and publish his bestseller - The Surefire Zero Gravity Hollandaise sauce. My blood runs cold when I think of the sacrifices that were made to get that blurry photograph of the Fox - how many were killed simply because they had overheard the guttural syllables of his true name muttered in a dark alley.

It’s twilight, I am standing on the 3rd floor of the eiffel tower, thinking about the events of the day, I smile. Taking in the beauty of the city as the evening candles along the boulevards are lit when suddenly, a cold chill runs up my spine.

^Oh lord, Anna, I hope it's not Marcus' lemon juice...

Here's a wet nap, just in case.

My penchant for disguise has never failed me yet. Reassured that I am out of danger for now, I lean on the railing and wait, nonchalantly whistling "Moon River" and picking my teeth with an Armenian pocket knife. The men crowded around Anna disperse one by one, as they approach her and are rebuffed without a second thought, like simpering goldfish attempting to nibble at a majestic heron's toes. I almost feel sorry for them.

Almost.

But there's no time for sympathy now. The last man looks dodgy, and for a moment I fear for Anna's safety. How naive! He's dead before his hand pulls the revolver more than an inch from his waistcoat. I take the hand-off from Anna.

She disappears effortlessly into the faintly gleaming haze of the Parisian summer night, already executing the next phase of the plan.

Who would've thought a toothbrush, a rubber chicken, and a freshly baked lavash would be so heavy?

Wait a moment...you don't suppose....?

slipping on the antecedent lost you a lot of points at a crucial stage,
and the wet wipes upset the judge from peru.

I'll glady continue to give up my points for the right to keep my lemon-scented antibacterial wet wipes...

Well, if I'm under 50 points, that means the lavash and the rubber chicken are back in play...

I pat the top of the giraffe's head and go away for a long time to make a peanut butter and bacon hamburger to feed in tiny pinches to Crispin Glover.

Crispin Glover flips out as usual, and stalks off, pocketing the sandwiches and taking a half-brick of velveeta to boot.

That makes pita chips wild, and the celery is corking.
