I didn't know what else to do with the GG

So, I've spent the past year or so cultivating a gaming group. They were previously video gamers that I have preached the virtues of boardgames to and have (through persistence that would do the Watchtower proud) brought them over to the light side. There are about 8 people who show with varying degrees of regularity and we now have quite a nice array of games we play. People are even starting to buy their own games and even bring new games to teach the group.

Like a proud parent I have watched them grow into responsible gamers. But today I have reached a point that all parents dread. Today I was asked to "join" a game night that was planned while I was out of the office. "Join"! Me! Sigh. They don't need me to bring the games anymore. My babies are all grown up. I'm proud that they are gaming all on their own, but man I didn't see this day coming so soon. cry

Is there a clinical term for this? I think I've heard of "NeoMeeple By Proxy Syndrome"... Or is there a support group that I can get into?!?!

How dare you butt in line for his soul? Legion has first crack at all newbies, you know that. Now you must be punished. C'mon girls, let's get him!

Since we all know wrestling is fake, I fail to see what defenses you have. WE ARE LEGION.


Apologies for derailing your thread, Jim. You should feel good about becoming a gaming ambassador. Keep up the great work!

It's only a joke that we want you soul ... maybe.

On behalf of my Partner in Crime-Detection, I must protest!

I believe that in the past, the precedent for claiming new souls that wander into Chit Chat has always been a sort of "Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers" scenario. I do not wish to provoke the wrath of Legion, but Legion must not be allowed to circumvent the time-honored tradition of "Dibs." If I were to let that happen, I couldn't live with myself.

Besides, if you "punish" the head chef, the head chef can no longer make crepes. And if the head chef no longer makes crepes, nobody wins.

Welcome to BGG and Chit Chat, Jim! BTW, this is the dark side, not the light side. (Well, RSP really is the Dark Side.)

And LEGION rules this corner of Chit Chat! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

And them Jim turned off both the monitor and the computer, carried them out back, and burned them.

"Joining BGG was a good idea," he thought to himself "but posting in that off-topic forum was a horrible idea."

He never even saw the duck lurking in the bushes.

Welcome Jim!! I'm a little late to the party, but don't let these clowns fine folks scare you off from Chit Chat.

We are insane but basically harmless, well.....except for HiveGod and MWChapel, and DWTRipp, and very few others.

Oh, and the soul eating? //laughing

Don't pay ANY attention to that at all!!!

You have nothing to worry about.........it doesn't hurt one bit!!

Hey LEGION LADIES!! Take pity on poor Coldie, let him have Jim's soul. We'll just call "DIBS" on the next 50 or so!! (Hear that Quixle?)

kiss

You know, I'd cut Coldie a break, but he didn't even wait to see what the punishment was. He had no curiosity about what a bunch of women, expert at handling pawns, had in store for him. Sad really.

Jim, if you never post in Chit Chat again, I will understand completely. We're nice people. We just skip our meds a lot.

I call your attention to Section 1, Article 2 of the International Dibs Rulebook where it states:

Quote:
Dibs may only be called if the enactor (”the Caller”) has seen the Target in person. (photographs, digital images, etc. do not count). Dibs can only be called when the Caller is in line-of-sight (LOS) of the Target; Dibs cannot not be made if the Caller has already departed the Target’s location.



Therefore, it is impossible to call Dibs preemptively. Interpreting the rules for Chit-Chat Soul Claiming, I believe I can safely say that one must wait until the Soul in question has posted in Chit Chat before Dibs may be called.
