And of course, because Calvin and Hobbes is awesome.

Also, it was said down in the GL comments, but it needs saying where it's not buried. I need to send out a thank you to

for the idea. He had it in the Piff thread and I just ran with it.

Also, here's the context for the above Orange Santa stuff:

For some of you wondering about Orange Santa this is coming out of the Pay It Forward First Geeklist/community. https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/193365/pay-it-forward-fir...?

Recently a very generous user changed an avatar from a hobbes picture to something else, things just didn't look right. So a number of individuals changes avatars to Hobbes in protest. Since then it was decided BGG could use more Hobbes, Hence this list!


If you guys are still liking this, I'm going to keep going. Going to try and pace myself and just do 1 a day as inspiration continues to hit. I have a few more ideas, but I'll take suggestions if you have them and don't have the PS skills. Note that I'm not really editing anything - just adding to them. Feel free to GM me suggestions or post your own!

It seems that there are either confused people in the chat below.. or there are people joking around.. in either case.. here's a clarification.

While primarily used for killing vampires, a wooden stake to the heart is also highly effective against most other opponents.
