TAY Run Club Week 3: Power Ups!

Illustration for article titled TAY Run Club Week 3: Power Ups!


Furby’s Fortune (3 Points): A random card is drawn from the tarot deck. Not only do you get your fortune, but depending on the suit you get:

Pentacles: Nothing, Wands: Give a team member 3 free points, Cups: Give yourself 4 points Swords: Remove 3 points from an opposing team member.

“Oh, The Tower! That’s a card that means... *rifles through book*....Oh. Bad News.”

Crash and Burn (2 points): If your point total for the week you purchase Crash and Burn on, ends up being under 10 points, give yourself 4 extra points. His plan to run TAY into the ground did not go entirely as he had predicted.

Aces Wild (4 points): If you get a total of 21.x points for the week, you can add 7 points to any player not in the top 2 on your team. Oh don’t worry. He may be a vain, selfish, lying, and quite possibly alcoholic man-whore, but gambling is one vice Sterling doesn’t have.

Nemesis (1 point). Assign yourself a nemesis. If you beat the pre power up, absolute value of your nemesis’ points, you earn 4 points. If you do not beat your nemesis, nothing happens. You can only pick a person to be your nemesis once per game. Aikage frantically tried to get Quiddity senpai to notice him.

Minute Maid (x points): Pick a person on your team to buddy with for one day. On that day, your total points becomes the sum total of your points.

The cost of Minute Maid depends on the amount of points the person logged the week before:

> 20 Minute Maid costs 10 points

10-20 Minute Maid costs 4 points.

< 10 Minute maid costs 1 point 

Minute Maid can only be purchased by ONE person, per team, per week. Nior knew that maid seven was best because Meathead told him it was. Meathead was never wrong. Except about anime, video games, and music. But everything else...

Back in the game (1 point): If you’ve missed a day of exercise, but then managed 90 minutes the next day, you get +3 points. Datacide decided that his exercise routine of dropping things on his foot was probably not the greatest way to get points after all.

Double Down (2 points): Declare Double Down on Day 1. If you can match or exceed Day 1's total on the next consecutive day, gain 5 points. If you can match or exceed Day 1 and Day 2's combined total on Day 3, gain 10 points. Cannot be used retroactively. I can’t go on with this. I can’t go on with this! I’m an American! I’m an American, I love this country! My country.

Divine Aura (4 points) Any points logged by the person above and below you on the sheet are given a +1 bonus. This bonus also applies to yourself. Aikage sighed and readied his defenses as the beam of heavenly light shot towards him. Not this crap again.



Theft (2 points): Subtract one day’s worth of your own points from the “Total” column of the opposing team. This power up can only be used by someone who has neither yellow nor red columns as “yes” (Still at 10 minutes / point). As the sirens blared and Ishmael began running for his life he checked the time, “gotta get those points!”

JFC (2 points): The target of JFC has to eat fast food once this week and prove they did so by taking a photo of the receipt. Nach smelled his food, hoo boy that smelled good. Time to eat some taco bell!

Eye of Sauron (2 points): Target must do 5 pushups, 5 jumping jacks and 5 crunches every day while chanting “Kluge” until the end of the week. These exercises do not count towards your daily point count. If Target is unable to do these exercises, due to physical limitations of any kind, Target can proceed as if they had done the exercises at no penalty. Some were there to improve their fitness, some were there to make friends. Kluge was there to ruin someone’s day.



Maid Nine, Best Maid (2 points): The combined total of a target Minute Maid becomes worth 75% of the total value. 3 out of 4 TAYers agree, Maid 9 is the best maid.

Pacifist (1 point)*: Add a comment in the sheet to your name with the name of an opposing player. If that player picks you as a nemesis and wins, you both get the 4 points.

* Pacifist is a permanent counter (does not expire upon week’s end) until that person has chosen you as a nemesis and then it is lost. Alternatively another 1 point can be spent to change the opposing player.

Sulfy didn’t believe in fighting... just cheating, and lying, and maybe a sucker punch here and there.


Weekly Bonus

3 Points (3 available): A color and role of your choosing on the TAY Discord. Role will be displayed separately from other roles and positioned above the “active” role.


Cover your meal (4 points): If you’re the target of JFC, I will reimburse you the full cost of your meal via Venmo or Paypal. (Within reason, don’t bankrupt me here, ok)

5 points: Autographed drawing of a topic of your choice. PS. I can’t draw.
