Re: May 20, 2018: Gaming Clubs

Re: OrcaCon Car Wars Tournament Results

That layout looks familiar. Was there a construction walk through video or website a few years ago? I vaguely remember something about the billboards surrounding the arena itself.

Re: [Rule Question] Crippling the eye and -10 knockdown roll (Bogus?).

Okay, a reality check:

I was working with a wooden dagger trainer. My partner and I completed our exchange and I remained still so that we could extricate and start again. He stepped back and...

Re: I try 'til I succeed
