2018 in silly back page jokes

Christmas 2018: Return of the Obra Dinn

Phil: This one's really good. Simple concept, great visual and a couple of fun lines.

Samuel: Ah, this is fantastic. Best one of the year in my opinion. I only wish it was about us the staff, but maybe that's too in-jokey and '90s PCG. But top marks. 

Pip: We tried making it about the staff but it was too much effort (ie, it was some low level effort). Plus it let me have a dig at people who play Anti-Mage badly. Win-win.

January 2019: Fallout 76

Phil: Andy wrote this, and it's nice, simple and to the point. Fake Fallout vaults are a rich vein for panic-written last minute jokes.

Samuel: Yet more words. So much reading, Phil. Why are you doing this to me? You do get your money's worth with Phil Savage-edited All Overs, I'll give you that. 

Phil: I'll take a wall of text over whatever the hell this is.

Samuel: A kick in the balls to see out 2018. How apt.
