Happy Valentine’s Day! Of course, the comic here is still celebrating Panda Day. *waves at Molly, Liz, and Britt*
Just in case yesterday you were wondering how you were supposed to be celebrating Panda Day.
I don’t think Panda Day is an official kind of thing, but as you will learn in this small series of comics, it was a holiday my friends came up with and decided to celebrate on April 16th. So make sure you do that! Because Pandas are cool.
I tried this once when visiting the Rocky Mountains with my family. We were hiking back down from some nearby summit and the wind had really picked up. It could almost hold you up, but I didn’t trust it entirely.
Hey look, it’s those same random people again! (
But where did the background go?)
Also, it’s harder to fill up a long one-panel comic with words than I had thought.
Apparently using a hypnotic wheel makes the background change color. Yes, that’s it… >_>
The board game HeroQuest, which is vaguely a dungeon crawl board game, has an action to search for treasure. Usually there isn’t any, which leads to a random card drawn, which usually turns out to be a powerful wandering monster.
But that doesn’t stop anyone from constantly searching.
Very few are impressed when obscure rules are cited. Particular not GMs.
Pokemon TCG — the gateway card game. First you start playing Pokemon, then you move onto Magic… and then you never stop playing Magic.
(Actually, I never really got into Magic myself, but I did start playing a lot of the World of Warcraft TCG later, so maybe that’s related).
Liking games is a good reason to go to a gaming convention, though not required.
Back in the day, the ‘coolest’ game was the Pokemon Trading Card Game (which is pretty much a simplified version of Magic). I played a lot of it, so much that me, my husband-to-be, and my friend would have our parents take us to the Toys-R-Us to play in the Pokemon League. We did that for quite some time until the store discontinued the Pokemon League for the Yu-Gi-Oh card game league. I never got into Yu-Gi-Oh, so it was rather sad that there was no more Pokemon there.
I tell you this just in case you’re wondering why Yu-Gi-Oh is branded as evil in this comic. >_>
