    Missing from that list above is Blood bowl, the only RPS game to spawn eight different spreadsheets!

    <chukle> Does that mean we have to be ground up by eight spreadsheets of Bloodbowl players before we're deemed worth of entry to the RPS forums?

    <sigh>

    OK. Let me install the dang game again.

    It's not like I played it much or anything, so kicking me around in it won't be hard.

    Hey all! Another Yank and friend of LongBlade's here. I've been a long time reader of RPS and long time gamer (of all sorts).

    Did you all know that people in the US are suddenly obsessed with Downton Abbey (including myself)? What gives? Does the program feature subliminal messages or something?

    I could tell you, or I could let a man pretending to be the Hulk do it for me. (seriously though it's an interesting article)

    Heya SoM.

    Tell the truth, I've never heard of Downtown Abbey. I should probably blame it on Skyrim or something, but the truth is if it isn't on the History Channel, Science Channel, Military Channel, or The Walking Dead - I don't really care.

    Ahem...it's Downton Abbey. Downtown Abbey is a lady of ill repute who kinda smells funny. Oh and hi all. I've admired the style of RPG for a long time. I am also a pal and former employee of LongBlade.
    I like turtles.

    LOL. Heya, Gus.

    OK, it should be obviously by now that I'm pretty clueless as to your latest hoity-toity heir apparent to Masterpiece Theatre.

    British subliminal messages such as "come back, we forgive you" and "we can put 1776 behind us". ;)
    Apparently, Americans - especially female Americans - adore British accents. That might have something to do with it. It also goes a long way to explaining why so many people on my course really want to get onto the Harvard exchange trip. :)
    In all seriousness, Downton Abbey is amazing. It's tied with Sherlock as best TV show of the last four or five years.
    Are they televised in America like Doctor Who is, or do you have to resort to less respectable methods to sate your British cravings?

    Westyfield I love your accent! But I am unfortunately not female. Can't wait to watch Downton Abbey. The Wife may really like it too I think.
