    I work in local government - that's distressingly like the conversations I occasionally overhear between councilors and managers, only with a little more sense and a little less overt racism.

    Welp, Dolphan and I had our rematch after cyanide's incompetence screwed us. And then we had another rematch after cyanide's incompetence screwed us again. And then I spent 17 turns watching nuffle take the piss, and then rub it in by having my ogres suddenly remember how to cause injuries in the last few turns, by which point I was 3 - 0 down and had nobody left standing, and then of course, come turn 15 I became incapable of causing a turnover, running six or seven dodges in a row with no rerolls, using up every GFI just for the hell of it, and finally, killing a skink, which was buzzed to another death, as the very last action of the game.

    A farcical blocking game and both teams repeatedly falling flat on their faces regardless of their dodging skills. But the skinks captialised on their opportunities better, and even outblocked the ogres every other turn. Bitter tears for Cogito Ogre Sum, but at least they'll live to fight another day.

    3 - 0 to Skinkulous! I'll get you next time, skinkdget. Next time!

    I'm away until Sunday night, so you'll have to wait unless my glorious admin comrade groovychainsaw can sort it out.

    The sight of 5 skinks teaming up to haul an ogre to the turf brings a tear to my eye. And probably to Sinister Agent's, for somewhat different reasons.

    A few rules curiosities that came up - if I make a successful dodge re-roll using the skill, then fail a further dodge as part of the same move, should I be allowed to use a team re-roll? It was letting me in these games but I swear I've never seen that before.

    The other was on throw team mate - if you hit your own player, who is already prone, and stun them (SA - when I was saying the snotling was KOed yesterday I meant stunned, brain fail), should it be a turnover?

    Yes, you can team reroll(or leader) 1 dodge, use dodge on a second and pro on a third.

    Some things are not turn overs that should be, for example if you crowd push your own ball carrier off the pitch it is not a turn over.

    if a player is already prone them getting hit by a thrown player shouldn't be a turn over, but I might be wrong.

    I think throw team mate only results in a turnover if someone on your team carrying the ball falls over.

    Apologies for the delay, I've validated the outstanding match and rolled the day on now.

    Mayhap all our extra limbs can entwine under Nuffle's gentle auspices, conflict put aside in the enfolding wave of love.

    Let's find out! Other half has her match tomorrow and Wednesday's not great, how's Thursday at 20:00 sound?

    I can do Sunday afternoon anytime after 5. Saturday might be an option, but I probably won't know until the day.

    True gamers have no need for pants.

    Technojellyfish - I could play tomorrow evening or anytime Saturday, but I'm off to Europe on Sunday so if you're not around before then I'll have to default.

    I'll definitely have to default my match against Mrchinchin in the next round as I won't be back till the 18th.

    Friday evening should be fine. How about 6 p. m. GMT? I can do a bit earlier or later if you have something else in mind.

    That's 7pm BST (8pm German time) right? Sounds good.
