Awww I missed picking a virgin! Now all I can do is watch the game without actively participating as an innocent bystander, instead of watching the game without actively participating as a lucky contestant :)


And to get it over with: I'm not the Messiah's mother, I'm a very naughty boy.

I got so exicted thinking I was in the lead.. then I remembered I am Dorien. Oh well slow and steady wins the race.

Besides, I am running in a preggers suit! (You all can see Mickey Mouse there huh? :D :D :D )

AND its over 100 in the shade! Hang on ... someone google "Bethlehem in December Weather Stats" for me will ya?

No quiz! I'm happy to sit back and wait for the "moment of conception" to arrive divinely upon me. At lease this way we aren't required to be here if RL rudely interrupts.

Willem and Crys - we still have 'unsponsored' madonnas :lol: There's Ruth and Sharon needing some support (well Ruth's doing OK but anything can happen in this game. :wink:

Looks like a quiz element's unwanted - :D this really is a shallow no-brainer of a game which, TBH, is because I wanted something that didn't depend on people showing up to keep the game going, so all you have to do is check in when you can and if you're a sponsor/backer for one of the madonnas, then you can do some cheering on or moan at her lack of form, knowing that it's done with dice so you don't really have to do anything at all aside from b*tch or gloat :P

Back again later with the latest moves :wink:

And right here and now I would like to publicly thank Jan for taking the time and effort to shake the dice and move our little tokens around the board on the way to our deflowering, while we sit back and get a free ride.

Thank You Jan xx

That last post sounds a bit sucky huh.
Appropriate to todays quote on the opening page of the Terry Pratchett page:
Far below the sea sucked on the shingle as noisily as an old man with one tooth who had been given a gob-stopper


But I WAS serious Jan... Thank you.

I'll sponsor Sharon! Haven't been in here for ages so I missed it. Do I get to kill anybody?

Shazzers all your's Dotsie :wink:
Ruth's still free if you want Willem :D

This is an exercise in practicalities so any deaths along the way are down to you 'orrible lot :twisted:

Also a tribute to all those pregnant virgins (of conviction if not actual) throughout history who managed to get their little messiahs out with less of a fuss and didn't get the blazing stars, wise men (hah! now there's a misconception waiting to happen! :roll: ) or figments of the imagination predicting great things for their little basket. 8)

No decision's, deaths or questions except the one's you bring with you on issues raised along the way. I did mean it about Matthew - there's no great departures really, so play with the alternative extrapolations to a modern theme and use that to debate how this isn't so much the Greatest Story Ever Told as a morality fairytale - with donkeys... :lol:

Is that gonna amuse you enough pooh 'cos I could bring our Lord JL in if you think it's not edgy enough? :wink:

First come first served - Ruth is all yours Crys (sorry Willem :wink: )

OK - onwards and let's hope you all get the luck you deserve... :twisted:

Dorien ~ 5
Sabrina ~ 2
Ruth ~ 4 - BUT you overshoot the golden point!
Miriam ~ 5
Lilith ~ 5 - BUT you overshoot the golden point as well!


Soooo - Ruth and Lilith, you may think you've got this race sorted but in fact you're gonna have to turn around and land squarely on that golden point next time. Regrettably reverse gear on your respective donkeys are dodgy in the extreme so you're going to have keep to-ing and fro-ing until you land on that sparkly pointy bit fair and square... :lol:

And what of the virgin Shazzer I hear you ask? Sharon ~ 1
You've landed on a Limbo square! :shock: It looks like you've not got a guilty conscience like that trollop Sabrina because you Shaz have cause for jubilation!

And verily it came to pass that the fair maiden Sharon, exhausted by having to explain to her parents (not to mention poor old Joseph) why she was feeling distinctly icky dick of a morning and having to keep rushing to the littlest temple the whole time, was packed off to see her cousin Liz...

Great! Liz is in the club as well! Rush forward 1 space to celebrate at Fatima's Fast-Food-A-Rama - but go easy on the choccy milkshakes and the anthracite and marmalade begels! :wink:

Maybe - the Lord giveth and taketh away and those Limbo tribulations will get progressively nastier :wink:

So, looks like Dorien is doing better than all of the others so far?

I've never won any game (apart for Werewolf at the con :wink: )
So I'm already counting on the fact I'm going to lose :P
