General Chat / Gen Con 2021
March 17, 2021, 04:02:53 PM
I got the email about two hours ago from Gen Con, but they have officially moved the dates of the show from Early August to September 16-19. is also showing it.

I don't know what this will mean for Raw Deal at the event, I know many of the people on here have families and kids (and that means school).

I'll leave this up here for people to talk about.
Supershow Rules / Pack vs. Play
July 22, 2017, 12:59:46 PM
So Snake Pitt has a base Agility of 7; but if he has less cards in hand then his opponent it goes to 8.

So my question is this:  Can he pack the 718 (which has a requirement of an 8+ Agility), and just have it a dead card he can't play until his ability is active?
General Chat / The time to act is now...

... if you haven't already got your badge for Gen Con.

For the record, they have never threatened to cut off badge saless before, at least since they'very moved to Indianapolis.
Consider this another reminder for those who want to attend and compete in either Raw Deal Worlds or Supershow Worlds, get your badge NOW; it may not be available tomorrow.

As the link says, Chandler Biggins (Chris Bryan) passed away last night.
If you don't know who he was, he was one of the promoters of Absolute Intense Wrestling, the big promotion out of Cleveland, Ohio.

On a personal level, this one hurts a lot.  As a worker, I was lost and needed a place after my old school went on hiatus for a year.  It was Biggins who allowed me to become a part of the AIW family and to meet people who I now consider good friends, and if it wasn't for him I probably would have given up on the dream and be left without a direction.  Because of him, I kept going and have another family of big, sweaty men (and a few women) that I can go to with a lot of different things.
As a guy, he was always the life of the room.  Sure, he was out there with the conspiracy theories (We all know Werewolves are weak to silver, not just a knife), but he was always welcoming to everyone; even if you were not part of the direct AIW family.

To hear people start to say something last night at work, I just assumed it was a rib and was going to contact the big man when I got up.
Unfortunately, it wasn't.  Now, I'm at a loss; I fully expected him to come back and be the Biggins of old.  That can't happen now.
Online Play / LackeyCCG.exe issue
June 09, 2017, 03:28:50 PM
So this happened...

I was about to open LackeyCCG, and it opened... for all of 30 seconds.
Then the program shut down on it's own.

I go to use the shortcut on my taskbar, and it tells me the file is no longer there and the shortcut deleted itself (as it will in Windows 10).

I go to the actual .exe file (the core file to run the program), and it's no longer there.

I do a full system search for LackeyCCG, and nothing comes up.

Finally, I look at the log files of all of my background files to see if anything happened.

As it turns out, at least on the Anti-Virus program I use, LackeyCCG.exe is now being listed as a potentially harmful program and will not even let the file run.
So, I don't know if it's happened to you yet, but Lackey may not be usable as potentially harmful program definitions goes downstream from pay-users down to the free users.
Rules Forum / Jerishow VAA Question
February 16, 2017, 07:35:15 PM
Revolution JeriShow
Starting Hand Size: 8     Superstar Value: 5
Tag Team Superstar Ability: When playing a Superstar-specific card, you may discard 1 card: ignore the Follow-up, Requirement, or "Can only be played after..." text.
You can pack Chris Jericho and Big Show-specific maneuvers and non-Backlash antics as if they are not Raw or Smackdown. You cannot pack Corners.

The Best in the World at What We Do
Pre-match Event
Cannot be blanked.
Double all printed numbers in your Title Belts, and your maneuvers are +2D.  Your opponent's Pre-match and Mid-match Capacity are -2, and his maneuvers are -2D.
This card is also considered to be titled Mountain of a Man.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent     RAW & Smackdown logos

<R> Jerishow allows you to ignore the RAW or Smackdown logo on the Jericho or Big Show specifics.  The thing is, you're still either Raw or Smackdown (or BASH), and The Best in the World at What We Do has the other brand logo.
So I was wondering, if I was playing <R> Jerishow in VAA; would The Best in the World at What We Do be illegal by default?
General Chat / Gen Con 2017 - non gaming related.
February 13, 2017, 03:05:05 PM
So as it's already being talked about on here (mainly when talking about when to hold Raw Deal Worlds and other events), I figured I might as well start on here about the other ends, mainly logistics, as that's the big topic on both the Gen Con Facebook group and the Gen Con forums currently.

Thanks to a few things, I have the potential to get a Downtown room for the big 50.  Granted, it'll be over $2000, but that's not important for me.
Now, two things comes to mind because of that.
1.  This is especially good if you fly into Indy.  If you want to room with me and all of my offbeat shenanigans (not that you'd be immune if you're there), I am more than willing to house someone *legit* with me (message me privately so we can talk more details if interested).  Also, it'll be a few blocks out, but if you wanted to "rough it," that would be a place to shower to help out that deaden Con Funk.
2.  Since it would be close, I could use it as storage.  This one goes mainly for Drew (RDPC) and Steve (SRG).  You wouldn't need to carry a bunch of support and product from outside town each day.
Rules Forum / <R> Mark Henry's Faction
August 20, 2016, 12:51:20 AM
Revolution MARK HENRY
Starting Hand Size: 8        Superstar Value: 4
Superstar Ability:  You have equal or lower Fortitude: your first maneuver with blank text played each turn cannot be reversed by hybrid cards.
You cannot pack Corners or Factions, regardless of card text.

Revolution WWE's Powerhouses     (Brock Lesnar, Beast Incarnate, Mark Henry, Great Khali, Test, Umaga)
Pre-match: Faction
You can pack this card regardless of Superstar.
Draw up to 1 card.
When your logo is printed on this card: you are a Powerhouse.
When you are a Powerhouse: look at the top 5 cards of your Arsenal: put them in any order on the top and/or bottom of your Arsenal.
Unique     Permanent

The two underlined parts is the question:  Can <R> Mark Henry pack <R> WWE's Powerhouses because his logo is actually on the faction?
Professional Wrestling Discussion / Read this
July 01, 2016, 06:23:10 PM

I saw this come up on my Facebook feed.  Needless to say, the fact that I'm even putting it here should say something.

It you're a fan, please read.  After that, we should discuss here as well.
I'm sure you've heard about the infamous clip from Tuesday's Impact with Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy.  If you haven't, they put the clip up on YouTube for all of us to see.

I'm going to say this:  I think Matt Hardy has taken acting lessons from Tommy Wiseau.

Since I can't get the Tokyo Sports translated link to work here, I'll use this one.  It still has the same point.

What the **** World?  Also, my sympathy goes to his family and friends, as well as the rebuilding FMW.
General Chat / the misadventures of SAT
December 10, 2015, 01:13:49 PM
I haven't been on the forums much the last few weeks.

Part of that has to do with today through Saturday.
Steve Resk already knows this, since he's been a huge help, but I'm spending the next few days up in NYC.

I'm going to try and swing out to Legendary Realms in a few, and I'll be at the HOG show tomorrow.  If any of the NYC peeps want to hit me up, message me on here and we'll go from there.
And now, back to lunch.
Rules Forum / Jam Session interation
November 15, 2015, 03:09:40 PM
Jam Session
Pre-match Event
Cannot be blanked.
Your opponent overturns 3 cards.
When this card is in your Ring, your cards with "interfere" in the title or text are considered Run-ins, he cannot prevent you from playing Run-ins, and once during any player's turn when you successfully play a D:1+ Run-in, put up to 3 cards from your Ringside on the bottom of your Arsenal.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent

Really, That's Enough Shenanigans
Backstage Card
Your opponent cannot play more than 3 copies of Who's Cooler Than Michelle McCool?, and you are considered to have lower Superstar Value for his Yo! Kill Da Beat!.  When he is Andre the Giant, do not discard for his Ability, and when he hides We Face Each Other as God Intended, during your next Draw Segment, draw up to 2 additional cards.
Your Backstage cards with "shenanigans" in the title do not count as revealed for Backstage Shenanigans.
Unique     RMS logo

So this is simple:  As Who's Cooler than Michelle McCool? is a Run-In, does Jam Session allow that card to bypass Shenanigans?
Rules Forum / May 19?
November 06, 2015, 05:14:03 PM
So I have one tiny little question about the new Green card.

May 19!     (Big Freak'n Machine logo)
Mid-match Storyline
When your maneuver with a reversal restriction from your Ability is unsuccessful, or when your 5D+ maneuver is moved from your Ring by your opponent and you have lower Fortitude, you may put this card from your Backlash or Ringside into your Ring and draw up to 2 cards.
Your maneuvers are -#F, where # is your opponent's Fortitude Rating. Your Boot to the Face, Kane's Chokeslam, and See No Evil cannot be reversed and when you have lower Fortitude, ignore the 'by Kane' text.
F: 19     D: 5     Unique     Permanent     RMS logo

The bolded part is my question.  Is it:
A.  My maneuver protected by my ability is reversed and I have lower fortitude; or when my D:5+ move is removed and I have lower fortitude.
B.  My protected maneuver is reversed; or when my D:5+ move is removed and I have lower fortitude?
Rules Forum / The Sheep Mask interaction
October 15, 2015, 12:51:32 PM
This came up on Lackey and there were questions on the interaction.

Rowan's Sheep Mask     (+Rowan logo)
Backstage Card
When you are Erick Rowan, your Superstar-specific maneuvers are considered to have blank text and are not Multi for your card effects.
Your opponent's non-unique non-Superstar-specific reversals deal no more than 2D, and when he would draw from their text, he does not.
Unique     RMS logo

Rowan's Cranial Crunch     (+Rowan logo)
Submission + Submission
When played, you may remove 2 cards in your Ringside from the game; if you do, this card can only be reversed by 2 reversal cards.
F: 0     D: 6     Unique     Multi

Drawing a Blank
Pre-match Event
Cannot be packed by Cryme Tyme, MVP, or Stevie Richards.  Cannot be blanked, and no other card can gain this text.
Your cards with 'psychology' in the title are blank.
During your turn, when you have equal or lower Fortitude and your first card played from hand is a non-BASH non-multi non-Revolution maneuver with blank text, it cannot be reversed by non-Unique reversals from hand or Ringside.
Before your Draw Segment when your Ability is blank, choose one: draw 1 card if you have less than 10 cards in hand, or put up to 1 card from your Ringside on the bottom of your Arsenal.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent

So Rowan is behind in Fortitude and Plays the Cranial Crunch; he removes 2 when playing it to activate the text.  Since it's a Rowan-Specific, it's affected by the Sheep Mask.

The question:  From the Sheep Mask, is the move not even a multi at all or just not considered a multi for the effects out (Drawing a Blank)?
Supershow Rules / Ricochet timing breakdown
February 26, 2015, 07:20:00 PM
So my brother saw the Ricochet set and used it the other day, and he brought up an interesting timing breakdown that I didn't know the answer to.

Let's assume the King plays a Flying Face Buster, does he draw BEFORE or AFTER he pulls the card from the discard pile?

After you Flip any number of craws, draw 1 card.

Flying Face Buster:
Flip 4 cards.  Then take 12 card from your discard pile and add it to your hand.[/b]
Rules Forum / Can of Beer
May 22, 2014, 08:56:59 PM
Just a quick question about it.

Can Two-Man Power Trip pack the Can of Beer?
... I FINALLY got word as of leaving work this morning that my requested vacation days for GenCon time was approved.
I could go on about how much of a  :police: it was, and the circumstances on why it was bull :police:it took me this long, but I won't.

The fact is, I should be able to go to the big World Championships this year.

But now, comes the problem.
Because it took me this long, I don't have any of the reservations made, including hotel, or anything for the events.
Granted, driving to Indianapolis is only 5 hours, so plane tickets aren't needed (and either vehicle I could drive would still be cheaper than flying from Columbus).

To simply put it into a one word statement about GenCon for me...
General Chat / KD8ESU vs. High Speed
July 03, 2013, 03:16:47 PM
Ok, so I've been keeping quiet on this, since I didn't want to make people happy (namely the Lackey people), but I think it's time I need to get my frustration off my chest.

Last year, my local cable and phone company hired a contractor to extend their cable line out to the county line on my road.  The project was slated to be finished by the end of June.
This means I would have gotten high speed out in my area.

As it turns out the contractor didn't quite live up to their end of the deal.  Just so people know, I live just outside a small little... I'd classify it as village, but it's not even that.  It's called Bloomfield, Ohio.  The only things in it are the township hall (that building is smaller then my room) , a church, and homes.
The contractor only drew the lines out to the edge of Bloomfield.  This means that in reality, I am a few feet short of being able to get cable lines here.  Frustrating enough, especially since it'll probably take a few years for the contractor to be forced to complete the job they were asked to do.

It gets worse.

Because of that debacle, the company offered those of us who would have gotten the cable but didn't were being offered Satellite services at a HUGE discount.  Needless to say, we took advantage...
Or we were going to.

As it turns out, there's two trees blocking the view of the satellite.
Now, this would have normally been a situation where we'd have them install the manual end and I'd cut the trees myself and test the connection from there.

NOPE!  As it turns out, the trees have overgrown and are covering the power lines.
So that solution seems simple enough, get the power company out and have them clean it up.

AEP Ohio comes out, and despite the fact that their lines are being completely covered (and by this, I mean surrounded) by branches and the trees are starting to go, the inspector deems the branches don't pose a threat to the power lines.

So I'm in catch 22 right now on high speed internet, and unless the trees finally go (and probably taking power with it), it looks like I'm not going to have high speed for a good long while.

f**k my life!
General Chat / Life just took a turn for the suck
February 03, 2013, 03:30:58 PM
Let me preface this by saying that it's still happening as I type this, and I will update as I get information.

As some of you know, my brother's wife was pregnant with their first child.  I know they were excited for it, and I was excited as well; my first outing as the crazy uncle (and if you know me and shivers didn't go down your spine, you have problems).

Well, this morning, she started having severe cramps.  She had to go to the hospital, and as I type this, they don't know if they baby, or she, is going to be ok.

Clearly this is not the way anyone wanted this to happen.  I'm on my way out to see them in the hospital, and I'll post more when I can get more information.
