Sign Up Here For SoSG's Next Off-Season Competition!

Well, it's that time again. I figure six months after Assassins' Circle is the perfect time to launch our next reader competition: "Be My Broheim." It's being touted as the polar opposite to AC - a game that represents the love, brotherhood, and everything else that the killing and bloodshed of AC isn't. And on Valentine's Day no less!

Only the absurdity of AC will remain intact...as well as the commissioner's nervousness regarding whether the concept as developed in his head will work in practice. So, as always with a new concept launch, no guarantees there.

Also as usual, there are some strict pre-requisites if you want to play:

  1. You must be reasonably available during work hours to visit SoSG. The game isn't a big time-consumer, but 'gameplay' will take place during the week, before 5pm.
  2. You must sign up to play by commenting here
  3. You must send us your email address (to sonsofstevegarvey@gmail.com - please do so even if we already have it...just so I have them all in one place).
  4. And the number 1 criterion: you must have a high tolerance for ridiculousness and concepts that might fail miserably.

That's it. The game itself will be played the back end of this week and next week. So if you want to play, comment here and send us your email address. More details coming soon!

UPDATE (10:46am): We have all 20 participants:

  1. Mr C

I second that on the spam. Unless it's actual spam, because that would be kinda funny.

QuadSevens said...

My liver's tombstone might state something slightly less tasteful.

I'm in.

Neeebs said...

What can be more ridiculous than the founding member of the Flaming Menudos playing a little pre-season romp?

And it's been a while since I've commented on anything, but like wddim, I've been keeping up with the site...

Since J. Martin has left, I've dropped my J. as well. (The K. is my real initial.)

Eric Karros said...

Dusty Baker said...

Heh: w.d.d.i.m.i.am.

Mr. Doctor said...

Sorry I haven't been active either, but I am up for it!

Loney Fan said...

I'm not sure how I am going to enjoy this without being able to root against Q7, but count me in anyway

Paul said...

Spanky just yelled at me through email so I am in!

This is the camelback contest right?

Answer been served.

QuadSevens said...

Even though we aren't killing each other, this is still a competition. You're going down Loney Fan!

MeanieBreanie said...

MB's in and ready to killKillKILL or is it to loveLoveLOVE?

Eric Karros said...

Q7 says it best: it's still a competition. Winners and losers will be determined. In fact, in some ways it will be harsher than AC.

After all, love can be cruel.

We need 3 more!

Spank said...

I still don't know what a Broheim is? Must be something nerdy.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Count me in please. I R intrigued.

You're the last one in Karina

karina said...

@Paul a new Radiohead album?I'm thrilled! I hope it's an album I love, not like their two last efforts.

karina said...

@Eric Karros YAY! saved by the bell!

Dusty Baker said...

Karina! Glad to hear from you. Hope you're coping with the offseason better than I am.

Love, Dusty

Mr. Customer said...

I'm sure I'm not alone in wondering what karina's best news of the day was!
