Dark Tower

Does anyone remember the old board game Dark Tower?
chevronsha brought up this wonderful thing a few weeks ago, and it made me remember how I teunced through the ceiling to get it as a surprise present on my eighth birthday. You hardly ever saw a $40 gift make a kid that happy.

Edit, 11:00 CST Wed 17 Mar 2004: Thanks to hempknight for finding this!
You my deity!


Some quizzage...

From masteralida:
reader
You probably enjoy reading and writing on lj, but
at least you expose yourself to REAL works of
fiction. Pick your nose up from behind the
books, occasionally, and take a look at the
real world.
Do you have a life outside of Live Journal?

From quizilla... as you wish...
westley
Ye be The Dread Pirate Roberts, better known to yer
friends as Westley (or the man in black).
Ye've spent the last few years working yer arse
off in order to obtain the greatest treasure of
all, yer lady love.
Which scurvy dog be ye?
brought to you by Quizilla

From another LJ:
You are Piglet
You are Piglet. You are a very small animal (if no
one notices it, you inform them of it). You
worry and feel helpless most of the time but
you are stronger than you think. You are a good
friendand will do anything to help others.

You, big daddy!
You my deity!
Wlokaz, maybe a Maia or minor Vala, but still!

Awesome!

Is this it? I don't get it.
Many things are comprehensible to the 8-year old that are opaque to the 24-30 crowd.
Still, it's a bitchin' game!

Don't worry your pretty eyebrows about it.
Just let the grils keep plying you with rum.

Best recognize, aight!

So, so true.

I'll have to take your word for it.

Don't worry your pretty eyebrows about it. Just let the grils keep plying you with rum.

I assume that's a good thing you're saying.

If you tell a deity to "represent", does it make you polytheistic?

Many things are comprehensible to the 8-year old that are opaque to the 24-30 crowd.
So, so true.
To read tamf's sigs, 8-year old boys know all about women and 8-year old wee grils know all about men.

Don't worry your pretty eyebrows about it. Just let the grils keep plying you with rum.
I assume that's a good thing you're saying.
Hush and drink up.

Ho hum. Surprise surprise..
Ye be Cap'n Jack Sparrow, drunk from fantasies of
revenge and casks of rum, ye search out the
scurvy mutineers that marooned you and left you
to die. And ye don't smell too savory neither.

Dark Toooowerrrr...yes, we had that game when I was small!
Wow, that's a long-lasting game!
You're still 21, right?
Another young whippersnapper.
It was out before you were born, when I was 8 and you were, um, -1.

Mostly I just played with the computer tower-thingy, but that was enough for me.
Yep, same here.
I used to love the "express mode" games.

Cool, though.
Indeed.
Haggle! Brigands! W00t!

At the moment my big concern is the niblings (i.e. niece and nephew) who tend to lock themselves around one's knees...

W00t!

Chilly - I'm in Minnesota. Normal people go south for Spring Break, yes, but I don't think anyone's ever claimed I'm normal... at least not for many many years! ;-)

Ah - the newphew as I called bebe nephews when mirabehn's was born. I haven't thought of a term for "neice" yet.
How old are the lille rugrats?

LOL, "you betcha" (well, that's more of a Wisconsin thing than a Minnesota thing, but I'm still rubbing the sleep out of my eyes, so bear with me...)

Niece is four, nephew two. A friend of a friend came up with the term "niblings" to be inclusive of all a sibling's kids regardless of gender, and I liked it well enough to adopt it myself.

I think I've seen more snow here in the past two days than I saw in OK all winter. ;-) Kind of nice, actually.
