Will the Alliterations ever stop?
Like a typical Dad Joke, I'll not stop until it gets old. And the definition of old keeps expanding to my death +10. 10 what? Years? Days? Hours? What do I care? There is no money to be made here*. It's not like the Disney getting to extend it's protections now to +95 years after the death of the creator. Up from 28 years in the 70's.

But this is not about Trademark protection. This is about a gathering of friends practicing for the HMGS Theme Ancients Tournament. The theme is Western Europe and their Enemies**: All armies must be between the years 500-999 AD
list 109, 124-133, 141-165. Legal allies may be outside those list #s, but must fall within year range. Options indicating Europe, North Africa are permitted. No others.
**(No Elephants, No Knights, Maximum 2 Cataphracts in army)

So by declaring my Ancient Germans to be from Saxony, flip 3 useless medium cavalry for 3, arguably less useful "Great" Fyrd, and Walla! Anglo-Saxons!

*Actually not quite true. After blogging with ad's for more than 10 years, I finally got a check from Google ad's for $106.28 USD. $100 USD must be a threshold where they actively tracked me down with a "you know?" email.

The best one so far, IMHO.

It's "Furter's day", remember buy early for that special Frank in your life.

Darn you PHGamer, you are making me want to play "Le Art de la Guerre", you dirty Furter of Franks.

I would be proud, Bashytubits, to have you as an opponent one day. You can even name the alliteration of your choice!

Yea, I sold out. 106.28 over 11 years, writing over 300 of these things, at 3 hours each, 8.5 cents per hour. I'll not quit my day job.
