Sounds like a good excuse for random chatter

Have you no sense at all?
Can't you see that wall's been plastered?

This is formally a board game, but we're secretly plotting the downfall of the world in this thread.

You may know this by now, but you can change that if you click on Preferences. It is one of the options about mid-way down.

24 - 2 = 22.

Naah, it's just weird doing math. I wanted to drop math, you know, but then I ended up taking it in the end (I—hate—vectors). So, we were on 29?

(I know that didn't make much sense, but still... it's true. I hate vectors)
