Let's have some fun and get this 2nd Monday of the week rolling. I was sitting here playing with a new set of Rory's Story Cubes and figured I could make a fun little game for us all to play in here. I rolled all 9 cubes and took a pic of each in order. I will start the story out with Cube #1 and then post Cube #2 that will be open for anyone to create their own next part of the story.

Starting tomorrow, I will award the person with the most thumbs a shiny GG and make it the official next part of our story when I post Cube #3. I'll do this each day until we have ended our story with Cube #9.

Let's have some fun with this!

Edit: Here's how we'll end Cube #9 - The previous winners of each cube (should be a max of 7 people) will be the ones to put in a final ending and the winner of Cube #9 gets a 5GG bonus.

Once upon a time,

Joe and his friend Terrance were playing a lively game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Joe almost always chose Paper when playing Terrance because...

...because if Joe chose scissors, he would naturally lose when Terrance threw Magnet.

In a devious counter for the dreaded Magnet strategy, Joe threw scissors...but turned over his hand to reveal Terrance's platinum FLGS customer loyalty card.

Terrance knew if he threw Magnet that he would wipe out $170 worth of loyalty rewards from the magnetic strip on the card. His brow broke out in sweat...victory or game store credit. His decision loomed like a dark cloud.

Terrance faced the decision of a lifetime.

"To win, or not to win," he began. "That is the question.
Whether 'tis nobler in the wallet to suffer
The rocks and papers of outrageous fortune,
Or to take magnets against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To lose: to sleep;
No more; and with no games to help us end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished."

"Quit being pretentious," Joe quipped before poking Terrance in the eye.

In the midst of bleeding profusely from his fatal poking wound, Terrance suddenly looked up at the clock. 8:15?!?! Already? Terrance realized he had been soliloquizing for four full hours (although no one ever said that quoting the full works of Shakespeare, Marlowe, and Jonson in succession would be easy).

And then, it hit Terrance. He had promised his wife that he would run to the FLGS before dinner at 8! Suddenly the decision hit close to home. Terrance was finally ready to decide. Awoken from his dramatic stupor, he prepared to gracefully lose the game when he suddenly heard a voice.

"Psst! Terrance!" an onlooker, one man out of the huge crowd still gathered, whispered. "How much is on your card?"

"Why, $170. Why do you ask?"

"I'll give you, hmmm, 220, just win this goddamn match! I've been waiting here for hours!"

"Wait, sir, is there seriously betting on our rock, paper, scissors game?"

"Hell yeah there is! Now, do you want to make $50, or do you want me to go away and tell all my friends about you?"

Terrance despaired. Dealing with mobsters yet winning the match? Disappointing his wife yet retaining his honor? Suddenly Terrance wished he hadn't gone for Jonson too...

Joe couldn't just sit there any longer doing nothing. As important as it was for him to win this game of random chance and manly bravado, it wasn't worth losing his friend (to a mobster, and eye wound, or worse to a wife who won't let him come to game night anymore). "Follow my lead, chumrade," he whispered to Terrance with a knowing wink. Rock... Paper... Scissors... "TEE-SHIRT CANNON!!!" With the airy "pop" of the pressurized gun, a beautiful cotton/poly blend Tee flew high into the air. Like bridesmaids to a bouquet, the crowd lurched forward in hopes of catching the treasured tchotchke. "Go man! Go!" Joe called. Terrance was off like a shot... to the FLGS and (hopefully) marital bliss.

Terrance hopped in the car and sped over to the FLGS, where he promptly picked up two copies of his wife's favorite game, War of the Ring Collector's Edition. Having accomplished his mission just as the FLGS was closing (with the obligatory roll under the closing vertical gate), Terrance comfortably strolled back to his car and started home. The 15-minute ride went nicely until Terrance got home. Then he suddenly realized.


He had forgotten his house keys!!!!


Wailing like a 5-year-old child who just scraped his knee, Terrance pounded on the door. No answer. Another knock. No answer. His wife must have been sleeping! Terrance had no idea what to do. Wake his wife, or sleep outside?


For the first time in his life, Terrance really couldn't decide.

It was at this moment that Terrance was thankful for the immeasurable hours he had spent watching sitcoms while painting miniatures and bagging game pieces. He had seen literally thousands of B grade actors attempting to gain entry into a locked house/office/warehouse/alien structure. Surely, this wealth of vicarious experience would come in handy.

He puzzled upon all the options: ladder, battering ram, explosives, disintegrator, teleporter.... Which would be the optimal infiltration method?

Then his eyes fell upon the gnome garden (which he hated but tolerated in the same way his wife tolerated his gaming addiction). Suddenly he remembered that there, tucked away amidst the freakishly grinning gnome community, beneath the small bridge in the center of Gnomewich-on-the-green, was hidden a spare key.

Terrance quietly slipped into the house smugly satisfied in the knowledge that he had won Rock Paper Scissors, now owned 2 copies of WotR Collecter's edition, had avoided the mafia, picked up a cool new eye scar, and managed to sneak an Alf shirt from the t-shirt cannon. And best of all, today would be put to shame by what he had planned for tomorrow.
