Re: F5 - The Refresh Strikes Back

I'm happy to turn around and run another game - it's not really that much effort for me, as long as you're all right with my relatively improv'd flavor-text and full-on vanilla (although I'm ruminating some Everyone's Special-ness). The issue with me running them is that you're bound by my time zone...

TWG CXXVIII - Flight of the Sassy Platypus

Keeping the momentum going, let's have another game. Vanilla: potentially Seer, Vig, GA depending on turnout. Anti-sniping (game doesn't end until 30 minutes after last vote, within reason).
