This is the story... of a buncha Brootalz
Who were standing, fixin' for a fite!
Image

There were Dewskis
Image

And Assyrians
Image

Even Tratts showed up, alright!
Image

This is a battle I played with my friends
On a cold October afternoon!
My cousin-in-law tried
But he was too young
and did nothing with Luchardsko
Image

On turn one, the Dewskis built a great wall!
To keep out the Council of a Bunch!
Image

In response the Council loaded
Their hero right into that gun!
Image

Then came the Brootalz
Who massacred them
Image

Luchardsko also tries to make a wall
Image

Trattoria moves a little closer
Image

But one drone takes a fall!
Image

Then the Almighty... Benny Gesserit
Tries some strange soda ritual
Image

To revive the council inf'try
omitting heads of course!
Image

But then the Benny... tries out the big gun
and blows himself up to the sky
Image

Somehow this Brootal dies
Image

Luchardsko's wall grows
Image

Trattoria's assets dry!
Image

While the drone is crying
Image

This broot is trying
a song to reduce dew armor
Image

These guys load heads
Image

and then they're all dead
Image

An Assyrian goes KA-PLEWR!
Image

The Assyrian hero
he gets demoted
Image

his team tries to execute him cuz he sucks
Image

The dewskis go on strike
Image

The guitarist goes yikes
Image

Becomes a zombie thrall!
Image

Brootchi kills a broot
Image

The Assyrian buys a yurt
Image

This Broot gets off another successful kill
Image

The Assyrian gets foreclosed
The Tratt drone steals his home
Image

Oh his head he wears a turd.
Image

Then one day, Droney meets Brootchi
and they move into Droney's new home
Image

Meanwhile the Brootal
Can't kill council guy
As usual he fails his rolls!
Image

A candygram arrives
Image

An explosion takes lives
Image

Brootchi's affair with candygram goes sour
Image

What was the objective?
No one did it
That's how we all became the Brootal Bunch!
The Brootal Bunch
The Brootal Bunch
That's how we all became the Brootal Bunch!

thanks for the compliments
i feel validated for the day

Sadly, all the photos are practically sepia toned.  I think the bright blue baseplates threw off my phone's white balance.

I THOUGHT that was set as song lyrics! Just couldn't figure out which song until the end!  :lol:  If it helps, for future posts like this it helps to add a note: "Sung to the tune of 'The Brady Bunch Theme'" or something similar.

Lots of chaos, lots of confusion, and a Brootal with two heads! And a THEME SONG! Silly, yet satisfying!

We discovered that the only way to make the game work was to keep sending my little cousin-in-law downstairs to get more bricks for his wall.  The wall became quite large and impassable.

Sometimes the best answers to a problem are the simplest. "Psst... hey.... we need more bricks for the wall!"

:mystery:
Gameplay: 4 - seems pretty brikwarsy to me.
Photography: 3 - although the pics weren't blurry or anything, you are right about the sepia tone. Maybe that just adds to the 70's vibe? idk
Violence: 5 - Not bad at all. Every battle is fun when the end result is a river of blood.
Writing: 4 - Although at first I was more than a little wierded out at your style of writing this, I soon realized it was intended to be a parody of lyrics. I feel like for that, you get all the points, because you did pretty good, honestly. I would have liked at least some amount of in-game backstory or context, rather than just the fact it was a local meetup.
Overall Appeal: 4 - I liked the battle. As I said above, I think that some context would have made it a bit more interesting than just some random dudes killing other random dudes for whatever reason (not like that's a bad thing though  :roll:  :wink: ).

You don't judge your own battle.
