    Goofus lives a mile away from Bikenetic. Gallant lives in DC and rides to Herndon and manages to beat Goofus to the Calvinball.

    I thought you might nab this on the way back from Green Lizard. Nicely done.

    Default Phoenixball hidden!

    Thee Phoenixball lives and has been found and hidden within thee same day. Crossing boundaries. Upgrading swag. Cleaning the swag container so that it may shineth like new and, most importantly, NOT attract random puppers with the undeniable scent of chocolate.

    Proposed ordnance: Prestidigitation - Spell of great awesomeness and utility, if a player should prestidigitate a calvinball/swag container by carefully cleansing it and thus decreasing the chance that an animal shall destroy it, that player's haiku/limerick shall generate +3 points for being such a pretty caster.

    Clue:
    Bikenetic is
    Sister-shop to Proteus
    Seek Under Armour

    Fireball has fallen under the spell of Streetsmarts
    Phoenixball appears to once again be lost in the Northern Realm, having been cast in the ruinous Mountain of Proteus (will any hobbit be so brave as to venture into such desperate lands to save it?)
    Nivlacball is attempting to be the Calvinball it wishes to see in the world, near the Spanish Steps

    Josh casts the Spell of Warlock Judd (3 laps for -9 points) against CBGanimal.

    As the holder of all the Calvinballs, Josh engaged in dark sorcery and vanquished the Tarantallegra Spell

    Chuxtr gets 10 points for the picture of the beasts

    JOSH
    Phoenixball
    10 - (2*?) : base Found Six Days Later - Dilly Dilly
    10 : a beautiful beast Good
    -2 : no dancing/singing Good
    10 : VA -> DC Good
    3 Enchanted Points for Epicly capturing all Calvinballs (yeah, it should be more, what can I say, in these budgetary times my powers are just limited)
    Josh is awarded 21 points

    Fireball
    10 - (2*?) : base (Josh found it on the 16th, next find was on the 18th, so minus 2 to make 8 points)
    -2 : no dancing/singing Good
    10 : VA -> MD Good
    3 Enchanted Points for the hat trick
    Josh is awarded 19 Points

    Nivlacball is still hidden

    STRYKE
    Ball vanished into another dimension
    10 points for pupper Good
    5 points swag Good
    10 points for consuming swag on site Good
    10 points for changing realms Good
    3 Enchanted Points because that really is a great pupper picture!
    Stryke is awarded 38 Points

    Stryke casts the Spell of Warlock Judd against CBGanimal for -12 points

    Please, share with me your delusions of your score - please also let me know which calvinball is in play and in what realm.

    Apologies to Steve O and others, I was surprised to find Stryke's drop of the calvinball in Georgetown a mere couple hours before you all.

    Lamely, I got sidetracked and didn't get it redeposited in a timely manner. I anticipate demerits.

    I did enjoy the goodies inside. I added more. Go pick it up in the AM.

    I moved it across a river, though not as far as I would have liked. It's pretty embarassing that by a mishap the calvinball traveled far further in my car than it did by bike. Don't worry, the pickup and drop off and all in deltas therein were covered by bike. Maggie inspected everything closely. Again. I also abused a sleaze ride for this, woopsie.

    Random, aside, I'll admit that this clever game has made me think a LOT more about what is and isn't NPS ground. Hat tip, Mr. Cannon.
