Game Olympics Is

Two years ago some friends decided to hold Game Olympics. It was early July and there were 7 of us. We each were 'from' a country of choice and then proceeded to the nearest Salvation Army to purchase jumpers (or uniforms) for our countries. Snotiva (my homeland) is proud to exhibit a rather large, solid green button up shirt. Fitting. We played 21 games ranging from Air Hockey to Phase 10 to Our Rummy. It lasted for 5 days. Many times there would be 3 or 4 games going on at once. Since good times were had by all, we decided to have a second Game Olympics this year.

On the 4th of July, we held opening ceremonies complete with a firework display over 3 hours long. Not all Pirate Island countries could be present for the full time, but in attendance were Tea Republic, Kerplachistan, Grog Islands, Nettethuania, Snotvia, and Ampersandia. It has only been 2 days so far and there are 5 days until closing. So good luck to all particpants and may the best pirate win!

oh man, Ambersandia has had a weak (as in... no) showing.. but.. um, yeah. I don't know if that team is going to get to participate, due to labor restrictions in the country. Stupid labor restrictions. At least those labor restrictions come with a paycheck :D Let me know when stuff is coming up, I should be around this weekend and most of next week :D
