Thanks to jridpath for the image idea! Feel free to suggest the text that should go on the book cover, as well. :-)

Post your gaming-related caption suggestion below! Caption with the most "thumbs up" wins 5 GG if it's gaming-related, 3 GG otherwise.


If top thumbs scores are very close, I'll choose the winner based on entirely subjective reasons. I may also hand out discretionary GG for entirely subjective reasons, so don't give up just because one caption seems to be winning.

******** By entering this contest, you give me permission to include the winning comic in a print compilation someday, should you win. See below.

THE RULES:
==========

*NOTE*: Please try to post only ONE caption. If you come up with another and you really, really want to post it because it's way better than your first, please wait at least 24 hours to give others to post before you post again.

Please do not post videos, other images or extra explanation...your caption must be able to stand on its own (within the given comic image, of course).

I'll re-post the comic with the winning caption and your co-credit; I reserve the right to nix any caption I consider inappropriate for any reason (e.g. crude humor, nasty, pokes fun at individual who may not appreciate it etc.).

READ THIS BEFORE ENTERING THE CONTEST!
======================================

By entering, you give me permission to include your caption and the final comic (if you win) in a print version of the book, if one ends up getting published in the future. You will get a text credit for the caption if I choose to include this particular comic, so please make sure to sign your real name if you prefer that being included.

THANKS TO:
==========

Many thanks to BGGadmin (skelebone) & Richard Pardoe (RPardoe) for helping to make it possible to give out GG prizes. Thanks to Richard S (thorndor) for creating this cool "Inkygirl Comic Fan" microbadge:

"Hey little litte,
The Monk had a fiddle.
The Meeple Catapulted over the moon.
The big Dragon laughed to see such a sight
and the Theif ran away with the spoon."

Later that night, Ma Meeple realized that reading Carcassonne: The River so close to bedtime was a huge mistake.

..And THE BOOK says,"Out of these holy tiles we call our land, there live these beings known as humans."

Son, have faith. Through their wills be done, we shall find our true purpose in life, so don't worry about what you will be when you grow up, alright?

...But the third little pig said to the other two, "Sorry, I don't have any extra rooms. That's the drawback with upgrading to brick so early. And it sure didn't help that Freddy was building a whole house out reeds, for crying out loud. But on the plus side, I'm not about to be eaten, like some pigs I know."
