December 27, 2020: Happy Holidays And A Happier New Year!

“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.'” — Alfred Lord Tennyson

Taking us into the holidays we will see faster bikes, bots and haulers plus the new Betascanner320!

It's is a long game so let's see if slow wins the race. Open now , closes on the 28th after 8pm with a 12/30/2020 8pm starts. First tick is New Year's Eve's Eve and will run through the end of the year festivities and will light up the New Year and take us up toward Valentine's Day. Goodbye 2020! Hello 2021!

UBones Wins! Champion of Ring Game 1 is UBones! Holding multiple, recent Mega wins, this is new spot for Ubones as he takes his first win in a Ring game. The Ring Games badges are quite becoming and I know they are heavy. I also know that hanging from a thick ultranium chain around Ubones physically undead skeletal neckbone will be something that is "Simply to do for!" Caruso maintains 2nd, Randiv firms up 3rd with Breakers and Mongrell in 4th and 5th. Jodos, Gerrygadget, Solitar, DeJagen and Y(z)etiborg complete the Top Ten!

If you want in on a Mega in January of 2021 then join now as Hope Smiles closes to new players after 8pm on the 28th. The first tick is 8pm 12/30/2020

May 2021 be a better year.

December 12, 2020: Frosty Ring Holiday Game Is Lighting Up!

UBones leads with 34 planets after 20 turns! More than two thirds of the game is gone and we are entering the last turns before the homestretch.

Caruso is in a solid second place! For now!
Gerrygadget, Randiv and Xenofruit are sparring each other in their tie for 3rd place. There are about 9 turns to go and Frosty Ring is slated to wrap up before Christmas.

Frothy Mug, oops, Frothy Ring was scheduled to close to new players on the 13th and start on the 15th. It has been delayed for one day and will close on the 14th at 8pm and start on the 16th at 8am. Go ahead and join in if you like.

December 5, 2020: Zombie Infection Haunts Fleet Names

The annual Halloween Game with it's creepy, spooky fleet names has come back from the grave to haunt the winter holiday Ring Games. One commander, who will remain Anonymous, bemoaned the fact in saying, "Certainly puts a bit of a damper on the winter holiday festivities."

He who will not be named is in 1st. And he who is named Caruso is in 2nd. Dr_Sci, Randiv, Xenofruit and Yetiborg are tied in 3rd place at the 12 turn marker. Placid Platypus is lucky 7, with Breakers in 8th. UBones, also in 8th place, asserts in a lively manner that, "We didn't hex the fleet names." Gerrygadget and Mongrell fill out the Top Ten.

Frothy Ring is open for joining and will stay open to add new players for more than a week. Closing on the 13th after 8 pm, please note the morning start on the 15th. The Saucer and E-Class went in to have their skins shined and came out looking great and buffed up with a glossy shine.

Shall we run one more Mega game in 2020? Or are two Ring games enough? Don't be a blushing violet, let your thoughts be known.

November 23, 2020: Frosty Ring Is Up And Running!

This is the first of at least two Holiday Ring Games this year. There will be at least one more this year.

29 turns, economy on, nobodies build on 25.

ATO-3 Crawler: Speed changed from 70 to 80 for the Crawler and both the Crawler and the TK Tank are cloaked only for this game.

Frothy Ring, with a join rule of having quaffed a frothy holiday mug, will start at 8am on or about December 15th.

November 16, 2020: Orn Ree Tricks The Galaxy And Wins A Treat!

With six wins in this current era, Randiv now has one for the thumb and one for the other thumb too. Congratulations Orn Ree!

Malagster reports his way into 2nd place, if you can believe his writings. Big Brother garners the Bronze in 3rd. Solitar and Starcharger tie for 4th.

Dr_Sci, Ghouljerp, Spooxburg, Habig and RelicZen make Top Ten.

Expect two or three Holiday Ring/Mega Games starting before the Ultranium Harvest and ending after the the New Year. More games to play as the galaxy may be locking down and we will want to know who the virtual virtuoso's are. Frosty Ring will probably open any day now.

'til then!

November 2, 2020: Coming Into The Final Turn...

We have Orn Ree leading by two noses, Big Brother placing and Malagster to show. Caruso, Solitar and Starcharger are in a three-way tie for 4th place with RelicZen all alone in 7th. Black Knight, Dr_Sci, Habig, Hurax Prime and Spooxborg and in a bit of a logjam in 8th place which leaves Goljerp with the unlucky 13.

We may run more than one Holiday Ring Game, with one starting around 11/22/20 and another taking us into the New Year that would start about 12/3/20. Let me know your thoughts. My reasoning is even if there are holiday travels it is still fun to have a game to play during the holidays as many people have vacation time away from the "sawmill."
