Started reading about the Mate War on Through Newb Eyes this morning. If you haven't already read about it, please start there.
I soon had tears running down I was laughing so hard at the transcripts presented. People at work thought I'd gone off the deep end. I tried to explain, but they just kept looking at me in that way people do when they don't know if they should call the asylum or not. I'm still chuckling as I type this.
I love this game. Good on you mates for standing up for your right to use the word properly!
