Final Thoughts: Adepticon 2007

Postby thehod » Fri Apr 06, 2007 10:53 pm

Well it was a good year for many of us and I would like to impart the memory of Adepticon 2007 with a few words of wisdom that I learned over the weekend.

* Never order the Ruben sandwitch in the bar

* when your teammate leaves a #2 in your toilet, He doesnt like you.

* It is not a good idea to break the promise of free beer.

* Claiming that your brain has reached maximum capacity is not a valid tactic for trying to cheese out of a game

* Belching infront of your opponent is not the best way to make them feel at ease.

* If there is any beer in the fridge, save some for me.

* Anything Gav Thorpe's name on the Codex does not nessarily mean good work. GW had to buff army lists to boost sales.

* Once in a while just go for a risky tactic. Risk is part of the game.

* If your opponent has an accent, be worried.

* It is not a good idea to repeat everything your opponent says.

* Glue is like gold, horde it with your life.

* Winning isint everything, its how your drink afterwards that counts.

* Asking OGRE why does he love wearing pink is not a good way to score points with the Judges.

* Beer is like liquid tactics, you get better with every drink.

* There are no such thing as an aethist when it comes to the all important game breaking roll of the dice.

* templates come and go but bad luck stays with you.

* Bribery is the best policy. The promise of free beer will make me throw my game any day.

anyone has anything to add?

I thought #2 was the ever changing character from the old British programme The Prisoner. Certainly gives a new meaning to the series. Everyone wanted to be #1.

I have an accent (bad one I might add), played Adepticon and had fun! I hope it is not me that you are talking about LOL! Seriously though - why was it so frustrating?

BTW: Second to the last one is sooo true...
