for the image idea!

Post your gaming-related caption suggestion below! Caption with the most "thumbs up" wins 5 GG if it's gaming-related, 3 GG otherwise.

If top thumbs scores are very close, I'll choose the winner based on entirely subjective reasons. I may also hand out discretionary GG for entirely subjective reasons, so don't give up just because one caption seems to be winning.

THE RULES:
==========

*NOTE*: Please try to post only ONE caption. If you come up with another and you really, really want to post it because it's way better than your first, please wait at least 24 hours to give others to post before you post again.

Please do not post videos, other images or extra explanation...your caption must be able to stand on its own (within the given comic image, of course).

I'll re-post the comic with the winning caption and your co-credit; I reserve the right to nix any caption I consider inappropriate for any reason (e.g. crude humor, nasty, pokes fun at individual who may not appreciate it etc.).

READ THIS BEFORE ENTERING THE CONTEST!
======================================

By entering, you give me permission to include your caption and the final comic (if you win) in a print version of the book, if one ends up getting published in the future. You will get a text credit for the caption if I choose to include this particular comic, so please make sure to sign your real name if you prefer that being included.

THANKS TO:
==========

Thanks so much to skelebone and BGG for making it possible for me to have GG prizes, and to Richard S (thorndor) for creating this cool "Inkygirl Comic Fan" microbadge:

In order to close on time, the game store was forced to announce "Oh, is that the shipment from Essen pulling up?"

And that's why you explain the phenomena of box farts before opening a new game.

The live-action in-store demo of the new zombie game was a bit too much for the crowd to handle.

The FFG marketing team quickly made their way back to headquarters to come up with a more politically correct back-story for Fortress America!

You'd think they would have learned by the second edition NOT to break the seal on a shrink-wrapped Zombies before dawn.

RoboRally night went wrong when someone had the bright idea to use real programmable robots and working lasers.
