Bring it on.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

First?

Matt said...

oh dang the fear

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm in

Paul said...

I am cradling in the fetal position.

rbnlaw said...

Fred's Brim: I openly mock you.

karina said...

The expectation...i just beg Neeebs to not kill me today

Dusto_Magnifico said...

(crosses finger)

Danielle said...

looks like I am safe for today...

Matt said...

@ Danielle, but only for today...

Neeebs said...

I can't kill karina, anyone but karina

Lauro said...

Boom. Headshot.

Neeebs said...

Lauro puts me out of my misery, but solves my dilemma of being out of town and unavailable to comment tomorrow.

Fred's Brim said...

hi rb, you are a lucky man. Maybe tomorrow? maybe not...

*runs through the open field towards the safety of another hiding spot*

This feels like American Gladiator when the steroid-rager guy is shooting at you with that tennis-ball gatling gun

J. Steve said...

FB, that's exactly how I feel.

I've got a raging EK on his American Gladiator gun with me in his sights...

J. Steve said...

It's inevitable that I'm going to get hit.

J. Steve said...

I can feel a tennis ball coming my way.

Fred's Brim said...

thanks, J Steve. If I could return the favor I would. Can I offer you a shield?

Eric Karros said...

J steve dead. perhaps me too...

Dr. Geek said...

KILLER INSTINCT!

J. Steve said...

You're welcome, FB... I just hope that shield is good enough to protect me from tennis balls.

J. Steve said...

Apparently it wasn't.

J. Steve said...

But I did manage to lure EK out of hiding and make him vulnerable!

Orel said...

Epale!

Orel said...

Epale!

Orel said...

Did I just kill myself?

Eric Karros said...

Dr Geek needed less than a minute! You do the term 'stalker' proud.

FB/J Steve, 2nd or subsequent comments are factored out and thus don't work as shields (unless you're The Initiator, in which case your 3rd or subsequent comments are factored out).

Eric Karros said...

Orel, you have been safe ever since your Stalker (Dusto) commented. And with your comment(s) you have just shielded my killer, Dr Geek.

J. Steve said...

Unfortunately, I think both of us already realized FB's "shield" wasn't going to work...

It was only a trash can lid and not powerful enough to stop the menacing tennis ball of doom.

Matt said...

Perhaps if a white star had been painted on the "shield" it would have worked.

Eric Karros said...

Actually my killer Dr Geek was safe ever since the infamously trigger-happy rbnlaw fired his shot off 9 minutes into the game.

I may be dead, but at least I can comment freely now.

Fred's Brim said...

and happy September, everybody! who's ready for a fun stretch run?

Dr. Geek said...

My first kill made me nervous.

GK Larsen said...

One day of survival, that's all I want.

Mr. Customer said...

John G is like Joe Pantagliano to my Guy Pearce. I'm making a break for it now before Q7 shows up.

Wicks said...

kiss kiss bang bang

Dusty Baker said...

I know what a French solider feels like now.

Mr. Customer said...

(Dives behind parked UPS van)

Ubragg said...

nothing to see here...

John G said...

dammit, picked the wrong time to lunch.

Eric Karros said...

Dead so far:
1. neeebs (killed by Lauro)
2. J Steve (by EK)
3. me (by Dr Geek)

Mr. Customer said...

@John G

...or the right time, depending on your point of view.

rbnlaw said...

Damn my itchy trigger finger. Could've taken out Dr. Geek as revenge for you, EK.

Eric Karros said...

The witching hour is near.

30 minutes and counting...

Mr. Customer said...

I predict a desperate flurry of comments in about 12 minutes.

drewdez said...

Open the floodgates.

Quick, someone distract Keven C.

QuadSevens said...

"The defense department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid."

Keven C said...

Stand down

Keven C said...

Arrgh!

Dusty Baker said...

Bring out yer dead!

drewdez said...

Thanks for the cover, QuadSevens!

Felix Pardalis said...

no!

Eric Karros said...

Let's tally up the bodies!

QuadSevens said...

No problem Drewdez. I'm just happy Loney Fan wasn't lurking in the bushes to take me out.

Eric Karros said...

...including my own. Though I'm driving right now and probably should wait til I get home. In fact I probably shouldn't even be typing this lest I be a road hazard. On the other hand, I'm already dead.

Steve Sax said...

Friends don't let friends text and drive. Even friends who are already dead.

Steve Sax said...

speaking of texting while driving...

Keven C said...

Well played, Drewdez. Well played.

Eric Karros said...

So by my count we have 7 dead: 3 by another's hand and 4 by not commenting in time. Felix in particular danced a bit too close to the 3pm fire:
1. neeebs killed by Lauro
2. J Steve killed by EK
3. EK killed by Dr Geek.
4. Loney fan
5. djansson
6. Felix Pardalis
7. Bruce Almighty
Please let me know if I've missed anything.

Tomorrow 9am, the massacre returns!

Dusty Baker said...

will there be a skeleton graphic re-issue, or we just do the circle closing in our own heads?

Mr. Customer said...

Random order tomorrow, or do we just close the loop?

Mr. Customer said...

Damn, dusty.

You took the words right out of my mouth.

Dr. Geek said...

I want to see a cool graphic with the name of the dead, "dead" or something similar written across the name.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, with a "187" written across someone's name or something like that.

Eric Karros said...

The updated Circle will be posted in tomorrow's Kill Thread. The Circle will simply close, so you should know who your new Stalker and Target are.

Damn I wish I weren't dead. I want to play tomorrow. Avenge my death, rbnlaw!

I also want to see Dr Geek's medical credentials.

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty, Dr. Geek

What this game really needs is a narrative element, Like EK being taken down by a blow dart outside Randy's Donuts.

(Sorry, Josh S, I'm just twisted that way)

Dusty Baker said...

Josh S is out there, judging us. I feel so dirty.

QuadSevens said...

*Plans to hide inside Randy's Donuts tomorrow. Chocolate Old Fashioned donut and coffee are on the menu.*

Dusty Baker said...

Can we just use the lyrics from Paul Revere to tell this epic tale, Mr. C?

Dusty Baker said...

"Now my name is Dr Geek, I've got a license to kill
I think you know what time it is, it's time to get ill
Now what do we have here, Dusty and his beer
Lauro runs this land, you understand, I make myself clear."
Karros stepped into the wind, he had a gun, J Steve had a grin
You think this story's over but it's ready to begin...

Mr. Customer said...

@db,

Just a sec, let me grab two girlies and a beer that's cold!

Neeebs said...

This Avatar is more appropriate.

Neeebs said...

Not Travis sighting, yet Mr. C

Neeebs said...

"not" = "no"

rbnlaw said...

Being quick to the trigger may have spared the Geek, but it also kept me alive to see tomorrow.
*slowly turns and retreats to the shadows*

Neeebs said...

Mr. C: TRAVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!

Mr. Customer said...

Neeebs,

He just texted me about 20 seconds ago. Elvis has left the building.

Mr. Customer said...

OK, that's twice in one thread. Creepy.

Steve Sax said...

EK, there may be value in doing the original (round 1) circle with redlines of death across some names, then a new (round 2) circle. Maybe I'm the only one who'd appreciate this. I don't know.

I'm oiling up my chainsaw for tomorrow's massacre.

karina said...

@Sax: when you say "oiling up my chainsaw", do you mean something like this?:

fyi:

I did manage to cross my finger.
