OOO! What a fun game. Can I play too?
I take it that this is not Anansi?
The Reaper plays Chess with everyone, and mostly he wins…. ‘Course, when he’s using a weed-whacker, I’m not really sure.
The slightly out-of-kilter world of MythTickle. Love it.
Personally, I think he’s just trying to cheat Death.
Quick quiz, what piece is being discussed in the song “I’ve Seen All good People/Your Move” by YES?
Love the Weedwhacker of Death! A scythe is just so old-fashioned these days…
Maybe they should try Battleship…
Nice touch with the weedwhacker. A rather benign Death!
Yeah,nice weedwhacker. Too bad he can’t get it started because every time he toucks it…..ITDIES!
Poor ol” Reaper, he’s having a tuff week, first Baldur, then Boody….now THIS.
Personally - if given the choice - I think I would prefer going via the quick scythe. I have been accidentally flayed with a weed-whacker, and it’s not really that lethal. It would take a LOT of whackin to get the job done. …unless that’s like some kind of Vorpal string or something.. But it’s not even glowing, so I dunno.
I’ve heard about Zombie Chess–sounds like fun. But I’d think Death would be the one playing it: he’s in charge of the dead, after all.
That piece looks like a knight to me-
Queen to Queen’s Level Three…
bmonk; Really? You’ve heard of this? I swear, I thought this up just for this comic. I guess it makes sense that someone else would come up with the idea too.
Kinda’ bums me out though.
There are lots of variations. I’m not sure that the one I heard of was the same–I’m pretty sure the “Grrr” is original–and I think they have their original moves. But Zombie Chess is easier to come up with than, say, Vampire Chess, I guess.
