Have you ever had a scenario with a cookie based life form
diplomatic mission go awry?

The muppets endless wargame possibilities.

Dr Argent22 Feb 2019 6:52 a.m. PST

Great idea. We did one with a bread based life form and it went a rye.

Legion 422 Feb 2019 6:54 a.m. PST

Yes, and they some how force themselves into my stomach … huh? And it's not just cookies, but most pastries, ice cream, candy, etc., etc. …

One could play a game against cookie aliens where you had to eat any kills. Or better yet, play a game against little bottle of bourbon aliens, like the scene in Our Man in Havana.

LOL, greatness.

I've fought the gummy bear zombies many times, they were delicous.

Diplomacy mission … no?

Well, cookie adventurers in the savage lands of the cannibals … yes.

I have also used some really really really good mini cupcakes that SWMBO makes as resources to capture during a game. At the end, mini cupcake count was your score. Empty wrappers don't count MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

And, of course, every year, after Christmas gingerbread house kits go on deeeeeeeep discount


we play the Gingerbread City vs Kaiju game. In that case, you eat what you destroy.

Legion 423 Feb 2019 7:56 a.m. PST

Got to do something with all that leftover gingerbread …

Need to develop a cannon that shoots hot tea, maybe even with a coaxial milk gun.

Legion 424 Feb 2019 2:34 p.m. PST

That's classified !

Milk with tea?!?!?!!!?!? BLASPHEMY! Next thing, you're going to do is suggest burning sugar cube tracer rounds …

Legion 425 Feb 2019 7:35 a.m. PST

I use French Vanilla Coffee Mate in my tea with a little stevia … evil grin

And of course I drink … "Earl Grey … Hot!" …

von Schwartz25 Feb 2019 4:53 p.m. PST

Hey, I always thought the Brits preferred milk with their tea.

BTW, I 'was' going to suggest burning sugar cube tracer rounds, stole my thunder again!!!

Legion 427 Feb 2019 6:34 a.m. PST

Another reason I ain't no Brit ! wink

According to reliable sources (something I probably read on the Interwebz…), the British put milk in their tea because the hot tea would crack the fragile teacups without milk at the start.

Of course, other reliable sources indicate that some French aristocrat made it haute, so the Brits then just lapped it up.

Regardless, the right way to drink tea is put the leaves in the bottom of your cup and pour water over them. Milk … ick.

Dipping a bit of hardtack in it is acceptable.

It's worse than that. He's bread Jim!

von Schwartz03 Mar 2019 5:15 p.m. PST

Someone please hand tsofian his coat.

Legion 404 Mar 2019 5:57 a.m. PST

LOL !!!! Pass the jelly !!!

Oh …. I so have just the right zombie scenario that will now be modded to have the "good guys" turned into these little ~1" diameter cream cheese garlic bread puffs we make instead of zeds.

Lion in the Stars04 Mar 2019 4:31 p.m. PST

We used various candies as 'ememies' while roleplaying. You kill it, you eat it.

Legion 405 Mar 2019 6:52 a.m. PST

Sounds like 40K Kroot … They not only kill ya but eat ya too ! huh?

Not being a 40K player (but liking and using a lot of the models), I am only partly aware of the fluff (mainly from being bored and randomly surfing 1d4chan). But that's a good to know bit. I like the idea of cannibal auxiliaries; good for the military logistics.

Legion 406 Mar 2019 10:36 a.m. PST

I only play Epic, and I find a lot of the GW fluff dumb/silly/stupid, etc., … evil grin But yes, I've got some Epic Kroot with my Epic Tau.

At any rate, yes, the Kroot eat their dead enemies. huh?
