  1. I am sending out the latest batch of Biggles cards in the next couple of days. We have now raised $2480 for charity. It's unbelievable. I have about fifteen cards left. If you want to be the proud owner of this classic piece of X-Wing history, please read the instructions below.... https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1461279/biggles-saves-lives
  2. Hello everyone, Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of the X-Wing community worldwide, we have so far raised $1800 for charity selling the Biggles cards. There are still some left so now my hope is to reach $2000. If you would like to order one, please follow the instructions from the original thread below. https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/192159-biggles-saves-lives/ On behalf of the Interfaith Homeless Shelter in Santa Fe, and the Campaign Against Cancer, thank you.
  3. Be the first to own a piece of X-Wing history while helping those in need. In 2014, with the help of lots of members of the UK Facebook group, I created a practical joke and convinced a ridiculous number of people around the world that in England Biggs is known as Biggles. If you hadn’t heard about this worldwide jape, you can read about it here: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1163833/how-come-no-one-knows-about . Now you can own your very own Biggles card and save lives at the same time. Each card is professionally printed on proper quality card stock so it looks and feels like a genuine X-Wing card. I'm selling these cards to help raise money for the Interfaith Homeless Shelter in Santa Fe (see www.interfaithsheltersf.org). The shelter has been saving people’s lives since 2008 when homeless deaths from hypothermia were out of control. No homeless person has died from hypothermia in Santa Fe since the shelter opened, and we intend to keep it that way. Some of the money from the Biggles cards will also be donated to The Campaign Against Cancer through Twin Suns Charities (http://twinsunscharities.org/). This campaign is an annual event organised by X-Wing players in America to help find a cure for cancer. Donations to Twin Suns Charities are tax-exempt, for those who care about such things. Our plan is to raise over $1500 to help stop people from dying, either the homeless in Santa Fe or those afflicted with cancer around the world. By buying these cards, you may literally be saving a life. How do you get cards? There are two ways... (1) If you know someone going to the World Championships, give them $10 per card you want and ask them to buy them directly from me. I will be bringing the entire remaining stock there. (2) If you don’t know someone going to the World Championships, I can mail it to you. To make things easy for me, because I'm expecting a lot of orders, I'm charging a flat fee of $5 for postage anywhere around the world. Go to PayPal and send $15 per card ordered to friends and family (so that we don’t get charged a fee) to rabbineil@gmail.com . Please put your full name and address on the order or we can’t post your cards! You can buy as many cards as you want. Please be aware that in one weekend of pre-release sales, I’ve already got rid of a fifth of the stock, so place your order soon. I make no money from this at all – all proceeds go directly to charity. You don’t even have to buy cards if you want – you can just donate through PayPal. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
  4. So pretty much everyone calls a Koiogran Turn a "K-Turn." Many people call a Segnor's Loop a "Sloop" (often accompanied by a rendition of a Salt 'n' Pepa classic or Tag Team's "Sloop, there it is"). I therefore propose publicly that the Talon Roll be known henceforth as the "Troll." You're welcome.
  5. Sounds very similar to Aaron Bonar's Six Sigma build.
  6. Thanks guys. I didn't see it had been posted elsewhere. Hope it helps the game develop.
  7. Hi guys Hope you enjoy my new article: http://teamcovenant.com/tuskenraider/2015/03/26/i’d-rather-be-a-scalpel-than-a-hammer/
  8. Would it be obtuse of me to ask why people are flying in such a way as to let a Decimator hit them?
  9. Great resource. I have to jealously ask why some articles were mentioned and not others?
  10. I think it's a B not a TH. I think it's AutoBiggles.
  11. Ribann? That's a name I've not heard in a long time, a long time...
  12. Hours after all of Hothie promised revenge, suddenly all of his friends sent me Facebook requests. I declined them all but not before one of them fessed up. I shall have to be vigilant...
  13. Alas, Sideslip, I am now definitely not going to the Worlds. Can't tell you how gutted I am, especially because the possibility opened up once more. You shall have to wait another year for revenge. Although someone already tried through other devious means. I forgot that the response to a prank is either amusement or revenge. I should have considered that...
  14. I think I'm already being punished - looks like I might have been able to make the Worlds but now can't get there in time without prohibitive cost. I think this is called karma.
