Banner Redux: The Seconding

Check out the new, more-up-to-date banner and tell me whatcha' think. As a bonus, whoever can name all the bits hidden away in there can take a shiny new copy of Fluxx right off my hands! -For absolutely freakin' free, no strings attached!

Anyone? No...? Bueller?

Careful, Simon. You might end up paying international shipping on that offer. I suspect Yehuda could name them all with one eye closed. But you're just joking ... um, ... right?

Oddly enough, it's the meeple that's keeping me from being able to name them all. Just enough is obscured to keep me from telling his exact shape.

Sorry international gaming folks...

Do not taunt Super Happy Fun Fluxx.

Poker (if you want me to...), Vegas Smackdown, Ra, Hive, Robo Rally, Pitch Car, Marklin, Chicken Marengo, Blue Moon City....then more Hive and Vegas, and finally Cash and Guns.

Good thing I get a busier schedule at work next week.

I'll get the easy ones out of the way...

Lock and Load: Band of Brothers
Hammer of the Scots
Normal 6-sided dice
Ticket to Ride (vanilla version or perhaps Maarklin)

I'm not sure what the big yellow thing is or the block that says "..ter.."

Ha! Rob beat my entry by 4 minutes! I should have typed faster.

At 2:10 PM, August 31, 2006, Blogger Ben said...

Argh! I had the old banner loaded in cache! Nooooo!

At 2:52 PM, August 31, 2006, Blogger Simon said...

You guys are missing some stuff AND I said name the bits not the games they come from!

I mean come on, this is Fluxx we're talking about here. It's not like you can just stroll into any old store and buy this puppy. Heck, it's not like you can just find it haphazardly thrown into any trashcan located in or around an FLGS. This is FLUXX! F-L-U-X-X (the second X being the important part).

Jeez guys, have some respect for the game...or is it the player? Hmm...

By the way, the old banner had:

Locomotive card from TtR
Dragon fig from Descent: JitD
2D6 (ivory)
Meeple from Carc: The City
Etterick and Norse blocks from HotS
Red player's Samurai (RK) tiles
Doom: TBG Hellknight fig
US Full Squad from LnL: BoH
Heroscape terrain tiles, grass

Now you know how to catalog the results to get the gold.

FLUXX!! if you had said Indonesia, or mint in shrink Dune, or shrink Hannibal, I wouldn't have cared.

The only thing I can't figure out well is the mess around the Marengo blocks. It looks like Blue Moon city tiles and cards.

Ben, welcome back. I also had to hit "reaload" to see what the heck Simon meant with this post.

At 3:35 PM, August 31, 2006, Blogger Ben said...

I'll throw in Zombies, Zombies 2, Zombies 3, and Zombies 3.5 into the mix. They need a good home...

The prizes that are being given out inspire me to NOT give out the answer.

At 4:54 PM, August 31, 2006, Blogger Ben said...

Do I get a consolation prize for getting the original banner correct?

If it helps, I'll throw in a free training session on how to play GMT's Wilderness War and/or MMP's Shifting Sands!

I'm so disappointed in you guys.

If I were an indian in a landfill, I'd be crying like a baby right now. Someone has to want to at least win...right?

Anyone need a hint? Hello?

At 7:12 PM, August 31, 2006, Blogger Rob said...

The Spice must flow.... all that I'm concerned right now.

If no one gets it, I should get at least Zombies 1 for trying.

At 7:20 PM, August 31, 2006, Blogger Brian said...

Give me an F!
Give me an L!
Give me U-X-X!
Fluxx! Fluxx! Fluxx!

It had to be said.

At 8:55 PM, August 31, 2006, Blogger Ben said...

Okay, I'll get things started by getting some of the easy ones down:

Vegas Showdown: Sports Bar tile
Ra: Ra marker
Blue Moon City: Uknown unconstructed city tile

This is pretty tough with BGG down right now...

I can also sweeten the pot with my mangled yellow cube from RR Tycoon!

At 9:19 PM, August 31, 2006, Blogger Simon said...

Yeah, Ben! That's the spirit! These prizes are getting so out of hand I might have to even fashion some kind of, oh I don't know, wicker basket to fit them all in...

Left to Right-

Poker Chips : Poker
Sports Bar : Vegas Showdown
Ra Figure : Ra
Soldier Ant : Hive
Twonky : RoboRally
Car Disk : Pitch Car
+4 Locamotive : Ticket to Ride: Marklin
Blue Robot : Ricochet Robots
Something : ???????
Austrian Cavelry : Bonaparte at Marengo
French Infantry : Bonaparte at Marengo
Temple : Blue Moon City
Sports Bar : Vegas Showdown
Queen Bee : Hive
Lotus's "Bang Bang Bang" Card : Cash 'n Guns
Mr. Black's "Click" Card : Cash ' Guns

I got all but the middle one without the help from BGG, unfortunatly that means I dont win any of the prizes.

Good spot on the exact BaM pieces and specific Marklin card used.
The Blue Moon City tile is the Royal Palace (noted by the only multi-colored random boxes in the game).
The second Vegas Showdown building is a lounge not a Sports Bar, but I think you meant to type that.
I think all the Bang! Bang! Bang! and Click cards are the same for every character, but nice spot on the pair.

The only thing missing (that colored blob behind the T) is a certain '1' card out of a deck of 30. I'll give out another clue if no one gets it.

Very hard to tell that it was the cardboard box card from "For Sale".

At 10:20 AM, September 01, 2006, Blogger Simon said...

Haha, sucker. I'm so bringing my copy of Fluxx today!

At 10:32 PM, September 01, 2006, Blogger Ben said...

It is now official in my book: Fluxx Suxx.
