Welcome to our Forum, Matsue!

There was a recent discussion about playing chess with Grim for someone's life.  Many didn't know it was possible.  Thanks for the picture of it!

I found this funny.

I have been using this treasure room to store crystal skulls and large ingots (I want one of each kind). Looks like 2 of my gnomes thought that they deserve to be shown off as treasure too:

@pallyndrome could you take a picture in the day time or turn some lights on I can't really make out the Gnomes?

Cool skulls by the way!  ;) I like the Tiberium, will it transform or stay the same?

Sorry, I'll try again with some lights on and zoomed in.
And I really hope my tiberium skull doesn't transform! Maybe I'll move it next to other tiberiums to be sure?

Ha, ha, I'm more impressed by your completely extravagant collection of gem skullls than the funny gnomes beside them. ;)
He, cool picture pallyndrome. :)

@ pallyndrome, you don't have to worry about that Tiberium skull transforming.  It will stay in skull form without putting it beside anything.

There was a recent discussion about playing chess with Grim for someone's life.  Many didn't know it was possible.  Thanks for the picture of it!

That may be a reference to another media. I read a book when I was younger about a kid playing chess with the devil to save his half brother and uncle, after said devil had already killed the rest of his family. I have also heard it referenced in other stuff, like lolcats pictures and on other forums. I'll look around and see what I can find.

-Edit- I found info easily. Here's a few links.
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090125203448AAb2Dd3 This is a simple story about the devil and a man playing in a painting, apparently told in Christian ministries for a long time. However...
http://www.chessville.com/reviews/SchachaufOlgemalden.htm In this link, the picture second down, to the right, you'll see death losing to someone at chess. This is probably what the reference is about...Though I wonder if you could play with Grimmy on a different platform for a soul...

Okay, I'll get back on topic. Sorry.

Thanks wildredchild, I'll put it back with the rest of my skulls :) I have only 2 more skulls to collect - soulpeace and flourite :) and 3 large ingots - plutonium, woohooium and mummitomium (the last of which might take me a million years)

TollingBells: The greatest popularisation of that story is through the movie, The Seventh Seal. EA has previously said that it is a reference to that.

I think that's the full collection - apart from the new one that came with Ambitions.

Slingsby -  :o wow - are those septarian and geode skulls? How did you make those? I thought they were impossible. Can you list all of them? I'd like to make sure I have each one. :) And if this is getting to much off topic - maybe you could private message me? I'd be very grateful.  :-*

Yup ... Septarian, Geode and all the other 'glassy' ones.  The Tiberium skull is in a 'safe room' where we grow Tiberium, and is now used also for storing [hahahaha] the Gnomes.



I'll try to remember to do that list.  Busy weekend ahead, it won't be until mid-week.

Amazing Skulls everyone!!!  Wow!  What's the recipe for skulls again?  A gemstone in every cut on the display cabinet?
