April 25, 2011: A Transcript Of Yesterday's Episode Of Let's Deal!
"Welcome to the show of easy prizes and hard choices! It's Let's Deal! I'm your host, Barnabas Marsh. Today's first contestant is Whit Wicker, a professional college student from Harvard, Michigan. Tell us about yourself, Whit!"
"I'm not here to make friends; I'm here to win!"
"All right; Let's Deal! Did you want Box #1, Box #2, or Box #3?"
"I'll take Box #1."
"It's a brand new issue of the award-winning magazine for roleplayers: Pyramid #3/30: Spaceships! [AUDIENCE OOHS!] Yes, this stylish PDF contains a mini-armada of brand new vessels using the GURPS Spaceships system. It also features a cybernetic captain template, expanded information on the GURPS Technomancer solar system, optional rules for handling fleet combat using the GURPS Mass Combat system, an adventure containing a menagerie of menacing monsters, and more!"
"Oh, wow. That is amazing."
"It certainly is! So . . . let's deal. Did you want to keep Box #1, or give it up for what's in Box #2?"
"Gosh, that issue of Pyramid sounds incredible. The cybernetic options for ship captains sound especially appealing, and I love those alternate-history spacecraft designs. But I think I'll see what's in Box #2."
"Very good, Whit! It's . . . a complete run of Fantasy Gamer magazine! [AUDIENCE AAHS!] Yes, Fantasy Gamer, the fantasy-themed publication that spun off from Space Gamer for six issues starting in 1983. This retro-chic publication includes treasures such as a slasher film-inspired boardgame, a gamer's guide to Victorian London, a solo adventure for Call of Cthulhu, a battling-wizard game by Steve Jackson, and more!"
"Wow . . . that sounds like hours of fun right there in each issue."
"It is! So, you've seen what's in Box #2. Let's deal. Keep those incredible issues, or take Box #3?"
"I love all that retro-gaming stuff, and PDFs are so convenient to read and enjoy . . . but I think I'm going to go for what's in Box #3."
"No problem, Whit! Box #3 contains . . . bees!" [AUDIENCE EEKS!]
"That's great! I've been wanting to get into beekeepiIEEEEEEEEeeee!!!! . . ."
"And now, a word from our sponsor."
