Award season ended alright. You and your group of three went to many after parties, and some of you even came away winners. Others were not as fortunate but there’s always the Summer Blockbuster movie you got roped into that may win for SFX.

With that out of the way, there are more important things to think about. Like say, tomorrow’s big event where you’re all going hunting. It’s going to take a lot of clever tricks and patience to get the loot.


It’s a mini Nintendo Christmas, where sought after and rare Nintendo Amiibo are going on sale in extremely limited supply. Not one to back down from trying, you and three video game characters are lining up at the midnight launch to secure precious plastic.

The rules for this edition of Road Trip:

  • Of your three video game friends, which one is likely to complain about camping out on the street in the cold, and complain about being super hungry?
  • Once the door opens, which of your video game friends is going to be the tank that barrels through the waiting, eager children to get first pickings at the stock?
  • Which video game friend is going to borrow $15 for Robin. Will you ever get that money back?


As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain’t nobody got time for Amiibros. It is the Open Forum, after all. Don’t forget that the IRC Channel is always around for you to carry out discussions as well. If you wanted to give an admin, author, and/or friend a shout: You can find them on the DirecTAYry.

  • On the hunt. On the prowl. Scratch me! I dares ya to Scratch me!
