My Challenge Coin and dice arrived yesterday and, as the weather is good here at this time of year, rather than just announce this in a thread I decided to try something a bit different.

This morning I left a bit earlier and took a detour so I could grab a photo of my coin with one of Bristol's most famous landmarks.

So I'm asking others to show off their shiny new 1PG Kickstarter goodies too. Post a photo next to a local landmark, or something that is typical of the area you live in, your pets, gaming shelf (shelfie), etc; anything goes as long as you're enjoying yourself. You don't even have to appear in the pic if you don't want to, or want to keep your identity a secret ninja.

Behind me is Clifton Suspension Bridge which opened in 1864 and is still in use to this day with over 4 million vehicles crossing the bridge each year. It is classed as a Grade 1 listed building, and is built to a design by William Henry Barlow and John Hawkshaw, based on an earlier design by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and contributed to by Sarah Guppy. Unfortunately, Brunel died in 1859, and so never got to see his iconic bridge opened to the public.

The bridge crosses the Avon Gorge, linking Clifton in Bristol to Leigh Woods in North Somerset. Just beyond Leigh Woods lies Ashton Court estate which is the site of the Bristol International Ballon Festival (there were quite a few ballons up this morning, but I was too late to get them in the same shot as the bridge). This is a huge event on the Bristol calendar; in 2003 the weight of the crowds returning from the Ballon fiesta was so great that the decision was taken to close the bridge to all event traffic (including pedestrians) from 2004 onwards.

The bridge also holds the distinction of being the site of the first modern bungee jump (performed by members of the University of Oxford Dangerous Sports Club), and the London 2012 Olympic Torch relay crossed over the bridge, where two of the torchbearers came together in a "kiss" to exchange the flame.

Thanks for taking the time read a little bit about the city that's been so good to me since I moved here in 1999.

Since I can show it off in a game...

Here's last month's post where I used the coin as the "decider" when the rogue galaxy needed to steal or destroy something...

A play with the coin

And here's just one image from that post (so you don't have to go through the post if you don't want to....!)



And yes, I'll be back with more pics... I have lots of material around me to work with...

I had no idea there was a game about this...!!!

Today was opening weekend and it was wonderful weather!!!

So, here's me in an appropriate place:


And yes, that is my 1PG coin I'm holding. I was mainly just using it to occupy my hands while I waited on my wife to shop...

And yes, we did walk out of there with a game- Gluckhaus it's called. Sort of a gambling game. Not solo, at least not yet...
