Wait, I can use the Think Geek Gift certificate at those other sites?

I don't know what the full house or Fierce tongue is, but that's pretty cool. I track them out and check them out later today.

Backed up on paperwork and my kids came back home a day early. Shortens March Break a bit at least.

Nope. Sorry guys. These prizes were meant for you. Unless I'm mistaken, they're Amazon GCs. So...hopefully that works for everyone.

Well mine is a Think Geek, but I'll use it as soon as I find something I like. Have to check on the international shipping. Not sure why, some places don't ship outside of the US and others charge much more. We're technically the 51st state, right?

No ocean to cross and no Mexican drug cartel's to dodge.

The one Shyka provided was ThinkGeek. There will be another $25 coming once we sort out delivery details.

10 provinces, 3 territories.

But if we start sending our oil to China instead of the US like it was supposed to, I think we're going to be that neighbour noone invites to the street BBQ.

I think if the US family quits fighting about the pipeline through the side yard, we'll be alright tho.

Last I read, it stalled do some Senators, then China decided they would make a play for it and now if things don't work out with the US, "we" will make more money, but most of us want to keep it in NA.

and...done, with political/environmental talk.

Too much.

Thank you all very much, but again, the donation was awesome and VERY appreciated.

Nothing more needed.

Wow, man, this is too much. This is the most fun I've had in a mafia game in a long time - that in and of itself is reward enough.

But thank you to you and the generous donors.

I agree with Neptune that I would love to roll this back into site upkeep and/or maintenance.

I've definitely found a new home.

And Cable was Rain?

Damn, that makes me doubly sad for what I did. Sad

No, triply sad. Crying or Very sad

(And I didn't even get Cable's Token.

And it wouldn't even have worked on me if I did.)

Ah, okay. I didn't realize that was Cable's Token. I thought maybe Cable had something that would work with the microchip.

I see, said the blind man.

Jon....I just realized there is over $600 in GC.....I really appreciate the thought, and I absolutely loved the game, but that is too much, man.....I'm not sure where it comes from or how many uber-generous donors were involved, but I have to believe there is a better use for my share than on my silly ass.....

Jon, you are freaking amazing. I'm with the others, please, it's not necessary. This was the most fun I've had in mafia in a LONG time. Great game, great source material, and you stayed true to it. That in itself is really enough. To you, Shyka, and ROLL TIDE! , thank you all again for your hard work.

Thank you for all for playing and I'm glad you all enjoyed the game. You were all very entertaining, particular at the beginning when you were trying to crack the "vegetable code".

For my first ever assist on a game, this has been an insane experience. Jon is fantastically creative, and has this amazing way of taking a small idea and turning it into an extraordinary event. It's certainly a sight to behold.

And thank you for my reward, it was very unexpected.

Get your own title!

Yeah, I agree, I can't accept a gift card(I assume that's what GC stands for), wouldn't feel right. Don't bother, or spend it on your children.

I was browsing around Think Geek, trying to figure out how to use my gift card, and found this:

http://www.thinkgeek.com/books/nonfiction/ec44/

It would be oddly appropriate.

Guys. Seriously. All of you are getting the Amazon giftcard. The next person to suggest they don't want it will be banned. Okay? The prizes were planned before any of this began, so...you were always playing to win. I appreciate what you're all getting at, but you'll have to trust me when I say the generosity is acceptable and that your appreciation is all that is necessary.

As to the folks who would rather "spin" or "roll" their money back into the site...take the giftcard. Use it. Let me do a little research and talk to the people here who know lots about getting this place into a new home...I'm looking at Shyka, weeba and Gargoyle Geek (they've made their abilities and knowledge known to me) and once we've found an ideal solution, we can talk donations. I don't anticipate this endeavor taking an excessive amount of money. So, I appreciate your kindnesses... but don't fret. Take your very kind and unexpected gifts and we'll see what happens here in the next few days.

Thank you again to the people who sneaked in the backdoor and offered some goodies for all of you. I was equally blown away, but feel assured the generosity is coming from a good place.

Well, damn. I can take a hint.

My GC will go towards one of these:

Mystery donors, rest assured, if you are ever lost and lonely, I'll be there, multi-tool in hand, and I'll make sure you don't go hungry.

Hope you stick around for more games and chit chat APP!

I can try, but I have two jobs, so my time is limited.
