New Futurama theme for GWD tournament in June

Darth Bender! Drunk Lord of the Sith! I couldn’t resist this mash-up since the artist really did a great job integrating Bender’s distinctive look/shape into Darth Vader’s armor. As for the nerd nitpicking, Bender would only need to hold his … Continue reading

Rumble in the Pub II is set

Last night we coasted to a relatively easy first-place victory at Strange Brew, a venue that won’t be holding any more Sunday evening gatherings of Geeks Who Drink. It’s not really a big loss in my opinion, the place is … Continue reading
