Dragonspeak Scrabble. Develop. Now.

Just... try not to pronounce any of the words I suppose.

Why are all the other chairs empty in the first panel? Is she hallucinating the other players? Also, why play "Dragonese" Scrabble if you don't speak the language? So many unanswered questions; one answer: it's a comic. Stop taking it so seriously.

I imagine if he gets WULD NAH KEST(Whirlwind Sprint) and just runs through knocking over the table and all the other players. Possibly smashes through a wall, too.

Imagine if he spelled OD-AH-VIING instead...

Automatic win, I say. Too much trouble to reset the board anyway.

LIZ SLEN NUS!!!!!!

Thus, everyone was encased in ice, and I could cheat unhindered until they thawed.

Serious Sam does too speak Dragonese. He can decipher any language if he hovers the crosshair over it for a few seconds!

You think this is bad? This has nothing on what happens in Klingon Scrabble.

Best. Game. Ever.

Well, next to full contact Scrabble, but I'm pretty sure they can be played together.

He can also speak alien.

But he did decipher the dragonese. Look at his scrabble tiles more closely.

...That looks a lot like my kitchen...

What? When he attempted to spell Dick? Haha I love me some Serious Sam.

I used to be able to speak Dragonese, then I took an arrow to the knee.
What? Someone had to say it.

Is the Sykirm title intentional, or just a typo?

Otaku World Order:

Ah yes, Klingon Scrabble. The only board game where if it doesn't end with at least a few broken bones you're playing it wrong.

Noticed "Dick" in Sam's inventory xD

Nice

Why is everyone talking about arrows in knees?

I DEMAND AN ANSWER!

Reminds me, I REALLY need to learn Dragonish.

Kinda looks like Erin has a look of satisfaction on her in the last panel. Or at least one of the few of hers that isn't disappointment.

Tossing in a Rune. I don't know Dragon, dammit internet.

One of the generic guard responses to your character running by them in Skyrim is "I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee."

Funny, when Portal 2 was released everyone got up in arms because it might possibly create a new meme, but now that Skyrim is out they're all laughing along and helping perpetuate a new meme.

Well, I used to play scrable, then I took an arrow in the knee.

And to find out that the hell we're talking about, play more skyrim, you'll start hearing it said by guards.

Is that a Streetlight Manifesto reference I see?

Awesome.

Don't forget Thud!.

Thud? I'm not familiar with that game. How do you play?

I am afraid you'd have to read Pratchett, sorry.

Scrabble with Serious Sam and Mr. Dragonborn.... wow I wonder if she has power over who 'visits' her these days, because I would think one would choose far different board game partners.

If it were me I would choose Link and Gordon Freeman, sure Freeman will walk all over my ass with big words, but at least it will be a nice quiet night.

I used to give helpful answers to memes. Then I took an arrow to the knee.

I used to have really good fire resistance. Then I took a patch 1.02 to the knee.

still beats playing board games with Wookiees...

The first panel is depressing as fuck.

The rules of Thud!
My friends bought me Thud! for my birthday a few years back. It's surprisingly tactical for a game that only has 2 types of pieces. That said, from memory it is easier to play Dwarfs. But I haven't played in a long time.

SteelStallion:
Fuck off with Skyrim for pete's sake. I'm so bored of hearing about that game and I haven't even played it yet.

This craze is becoming almost as bad as that My Little Pony rubbish, good God...

Create your own webcomic and show us how it's done? And your own television show while your multi-talented self is at it?

yes, she is hallucinating the game characters, she has been for a while.

Scrabble... alone?

So...

1) Did the Scrabble board really end up on Erin's head? And...

2) If it did, what would it have looked like to anyone that wasn't Erin or one of her hallucinations?
