We’re doing a contest to give away TEN copies of SUPERFIGHT!
SUPERFIGHT! Is a party game played with cards that’s all about deciding who would win in a fight. Think Apples to Apples meets Cards Against Humanity.
Then, after they meet, they fight to the death.
To enter for your chance to win, just reblog this post!
The ten winners will be chosen at random from the rebloggers at 7 PM PST on Wednesday, March 6th.
If you are chosen and you already backed the project at $25 or above, you will be upgraded to the DELUXE NUMBERED COLLECTOR’S EDITION of SUPERFIGHT! The game comes in a custom-made wooden box with ALL of the expansion packs, AND a custom-made FIGHT LOG to keep track of the funniest matches!
Enter as many times as you like by reblogging as many times as you like, (but PLEASE go easy on your followers)(do as I say, not as I do).
Yeah, just noticed I completely abandoned my Letter a Day agenda. Surprised? Not so much.
D is for Doktor Faustus.
The tale of Doktor Faustus has been one close to my heart for some time. Most everyone has heard of Goethe’s (or at least Marlowe’s) play about the good Doctor who sells his soul for infinite knowledge. Assisted by the demon Mephistopheles, he turns straw into horses, conjures the spirit of Helen of Troy and causes general mayhem.
Basically, it’s about the consequences of refusing to live in the moment. To wish to go back to any point in time, if only for a second, brings death…and being eaten.
C is for Rant Casey.
Rant, a character created by the masterful Chuck Palahniuk (my favorite author and personal hero), lived a pretty messed up life, just like any other character that Palahniuk creates. Although I fall in love with many of his characters, Rant holds a special place in my heart. He was different without knowing why, he was a super-spreader of rabies, he caused people to vomit profusely.
Basically, it’s about becoming your father in a very literal sense.
B is for Burgess, Anthony Burgess that is. Everyone’s at least heard of A Clockwork Orange and its blatant violence. Honey for the Bears is a more obscure title but ultimately awesome. It’s set in Russia, which I feel doesn’t happen all that often. Lastly there is The Wanting Seed, which is slow but very interesting. There’s the oppressive government and loss of choice that is constant throughout his works, but he always puts an interesting twist on it.
Basically, it’s about fucking who you want to fuck and eating who you want to eat.
Letter C coming your way.
Taking a page from Madame Smash’s book (the one that has to deal with Tumblr activities, not her bestselling guide to hooking titled “Lascivious Lady Looks for a Loner”), I have decided to take up the Letter-a-Day activity. I’ve decided to assign each letter to a book, author or character that’s important to me and why.
Today is just the beginning, namely, the letter A. I picked “And the Hippos were Boiled in Their Tanks” because I just finished it. Written by Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs collaboratively, the book doesn’t really have much in terms of action until the last few pages. I haven’t read anything by either man (I know, I’m a failure of a beatnik) but I like it so much because of a peripheral character. Ramsey Allen was a man who was crazy about another man whose sexuality was questionable at best. I’ve felt his pain too many times.
In a nutshell, he loved someone who buried a hatchet in his face.
Join the club.
Stay tuned for letter B.
