Valhalla-PFD AWARDS 2015

Postby Alman » 01 Jan 2016, 23:16

With 2015 in the rear-view mirror, it is time to recognize the 2015 Awards for Play-by-Forum games. Thanks to all who participated.
We had 18 games finish this year with only one Variant (WitA) played more than once.
9 games ended in solos (50%)
We added at least two new GM's this year (Alman & Nanooktheeskimo).

To see the full Valhalla, Hall of Fame, it is here: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=49696&p=829135#p829135

So, we now present the 2015 PbF Awards. Please hold your applause until all the winners have taken the stage.

I want to know who declared me the most devious. This is an AFFRONT to my good name. How will anyone trust me in the future after the LIES that have been perpetrated against me. I assure each and every one of you, that I speak nothing but the truth...except to Pedros, I want that guy gone in every game I play ASAP...he's too good.

But to the REST of you...trust me, Im your friend...Antigonos is the one to fear...look at all those positive results. I certainly don't have that track record.

Im but a poor innocent player besmirched by jealous suitors who I refused to cower before. BAH HUMBUG

Yeah....most games...fewest wins...basically...you're the fish in the barrel the rest of us shoot.

You know ... the extra to fill the game

The fluff around our rock hard strategy

The million monkeys typing on a million typewriters praying to hit the jackpot

The guy shooting an assault rifle bragging about hitting the target once

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Love you Gooderian...and your old name too

So the secret to being successfully devious is being mean to someone's face... then using lots of smilies... :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: ... and... elipses.... lots of... elipses

That's not successfully devious...that's just sarcasm. That's different. And the elipses...assuming that's what they are called...I don't know where I started doing it...been doing it for years.

I used to do it occasionally...then I played Devil and started doing it more...sometimes it's a nice change of pace from excessive commas...

Also, congrats to Antigonos for such a successful year. This is more a behind the scenes thing, but if I had remembered soon enough I would have nominated him for most consistent/reliable use of provisionals as well :D

Ha, I've just found this thread after being congratulated on winning an award for communication and wondering whether that person was being sarcastic :lol:

Thank you for the award and to whoever suggested I win it!

Perhaps this is a sign I should spend more time actually working when at work...
