This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Indy 500 Fun: Win A Free RPG Bundle!
« on: May 19, 2008, 10:52:56 pm »
Since I am the resident Hoosier of the board, I feel it is my interest to remind everyone the Indy 500 is back with a vengeance.  American open-wheel racing is again united, and with many young stars, and fresh off the most exciting Bump Day in 15 years, I am ready to stir up some interest.

How, you say?  First, by linking to this photo of Danica Patrick.  Second, by having a FREE contest.  Here's how to play:  you need to respond to this thread saying you want in (and saying what # respondent you are).  The first 33 respondents get drivers assigned to them randomly (I pull them out of a hat).  If your driver wins the race, you get a totally kickass stack of RPG goodness (and I promise you, I have some surprises stored up!).  I'll also give out smaller prizes to the 2nd and 3rd-place winners, k?

Entry cut-off is Saturday!  Watch or listen to the race Sunday afternoon to watch some kickass racing, amazing strategy, gut-wrenching crashes, and someone becoming a part of racing history.  I know most of you won't tune in.  But for those of you who do, I hope you get an appreciation of the majesty, amazing history, and excitement of the Greatest Spectacle In Racing.  All this week, I hope to have time to link to some great finishes, terrible crashes, and wild moments that make this such a celebration for us Indy natives.

(And yes, this is open to non-U.S. folks.  After all, the race has   Englishmen, determined Japanese, laid-back Americans, underdog Canadians, hometown Indy boys, surprising Germans,  super-speedy Aussies and New Zealanders, charismatic Brazilians, and a stew of everyone else!)

Wish I could, ya know, go this year. Alas, money is very very tight.

I can usually get my hands on pretty good tickets for less than face value...

That is EXACTLY what I meant.

BTW, you're #10 (you didn't put down a number).  We have to keep this orderly. ;)  23 coveted spots left!  Get on this so we have a full field!

There are some cool sponsors this year (Marco Andretti's car looks AWESOME!).  It seemed when I was a kid, every sponsor was either Penzoil or Marlboro.  Not anymore!

Oil and cigarettes....ah yes...I remember it well and fondly.  None of this internet wussy crap, or power drinks or shit.  It was shit that would kill you or the world, and putting it on cars that go 200 MPH just meant we're all going out in a blaze of glory...

Though I do like Indiana Jones as a sponsor...entertainment symmetry fever - catch it!
