Next Week For Sure fared better in our second game of volleyball winning sixty-one to thirty-two. The great improvement may be due to having two more six-footers than last time and only four players on the other team, or it may have been our snazzy new uniforms. Anyway we won. Yay, team!
This month’s Heroclix theme is the Olympics so everyone has to keep the same six hundred point team for the duration. In the hope of building up my ranks of 2000AD
characters I bought two Indy booster packs from Logical Choice and scored an experienced Judge Dredd; also rookie and veteran Judge Hersheys to go with my experienced one. Objective achieved. I picked up a veteran Torquemada and another veteran Nemesis as well, but I already had six hundred points in Judges. On Friday my Megacity One team (Judges Dredd, Anderson, Fear, Fire, Mortis twice, Hershey twice and Johnny Alpha) was hammered by the JLA. This week’s lesson: if you can’t fly, leap or phase, don’t set up in the maze
Inspired, and having drawn the blueprints earlier in the week, I made a twenty-seven inch square amphitheatre out of cardboard, matchsticks and glue on the weekend. Jimbo also made a movable rope bridge. Next on the drawing board (after turning the amphitheatre into a coliseum) is a rudimentary Mayan ziggurat with an ancillary Babylonian façade. But first I must learn about paint and adhesive; learn by doing.
Are you still here?
Biff has not gone on leave because her house is being painted. She is still doing tasks and telling me after they are completed, as a courtesy. She doesn't even pretend it's training.
