I try to be respectful of others, of their feelings as well as beliefs, and praise their victories. But when it comes to air hockey, all bets are off. The meekest parts of me fly out the window. When we moved back from California, we joked that our house-hunting checklist should have noted whether the home included a ping pong, pool, Foosball or air hockey table because pretty much every Iowa basement had one.
I reminded myself that I could always buy one and put in the basement of whichever house we purchased. Unfortunately, I valued space more than I craved the need for an air hockey table. Instead, we play at entertainment centers while finding alternatives in board game form. While it is smaller and uses a different mechanic, it offers the same anxiety and excitement as air hockey.
KLASK is a 2-player wooden game that looks like a tabletop version of something you might find in a pub. It consists of the elevated board, two 2-piece magnetic striking pegs, three barrier magnets and a ball.

The goal? Be the first to earn six points. The 2-piece striking pegs have half above the play area and half below, connected by… you guessed it… magnets. Unlike regular dexterity games where everything is done on the tabletop, in KLASK, control happens underneath the board. Unfortunately, the explanation is where the simplicity ends. To make things more complicated, there are a couple ways where your actions actually allow your opponent to earn a point. In total, there are four ways to score:.
All the other methods for scoring involve things your opponent does. If you get to close to one of the white barrier magnetic pieces in the center of the table, it will stick to your striker.
If two find their way onto your magnetic striking piece then your opponent is awarded a point. These small pieces are mobile and a bump from the ball will have them flying across the playing field. If you plan well, you can use them offensively! If you accidentally move your striker across the area of your goal, the top half of the striking piece will drop into the goal. You simply need to have fun… and hope your opponent is good at making mistakes.

Always a SAHM stay-at-home-mom and mother of two beautiful teen daughters, if you can't find Nicole, she is probably somewhere playing board games. It would be great to learn from someone how to play this game in person. It looks complicated though. Right now, I am playing online games bu I miss playing games that are not virtual. Depending on where you live, there are game cafes, library game nights, events and possibly regular meet-ups. We attend one every Friday night and twice a month at one of the libraries. We sound like we could be quite similar!
Cool game. Would be nice to have this at a small party. Looks like a fun game!
Visitors Guide. Sabres Showdown Bracket Challenge. Today there was Sabres flair commenters wishing for other teams players to die, de-railing the thread after going down late in the third, salty end of the game comments, dumb trolling attempts to bait the other fans because we lost, endless ref blaming in a game where we had 5 powerplays to their 1, etc. This isnt the first time either. Pretty much every GDT where we lose over the past couple months have been embarrassing, and I keep seeing the same handful of names pop up engaging in de-railing the threads.
Please let me know the members that did so in a PM please and I will deal with it personally.
SOCKEY ON HOCKEY: A Response From Winter-peg!
When it comes to GDTs, every fan should be allowed to be a fan. To be "that fan". But to go beyond a hockey fan and entering into inappropriate behavour is uncalled for, unwelcomed, and unacceptable on our sub. Winnipeg fan here I don't think anyone sweats it. You've had some tough seasons, understandable to be bitter. But there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel for you very soon. Peg fan here. GDTs are entertaining for me if theres alot of banters and trashtalking.
This is not new for us, you should visit a jets vs preds gdt.
And behold the keyboard warriors at its finest. Those are shitty trashy fans. Fuck those 2 guys. It's just a song name and too many people have never heard of it, making it a god awful joke. If you ever see anything inappropriate, please screenshot it and send it to me.
Don't just save the comment in case of deletion. That's exactly what you should do. I don't think they have done anything to deserve a ban though. It was a fucking joke. What he said is a song title by jpegmafia. Everyone needs to chill out about it. I mean, the context was he said it right after Morrissey scored. Can't imagine why anyone thought he was just being shitty. Okay but how would anyone get the joke without knowing the song? I dont think that's a widely known song. That's what I'm saying.
The context, especially if you don't know the song, is that the guy just scored on us and someone says he should die. Acting like jpegmafia is something everybody knows is silly as hell. I think they showed some better effort on the d line. Yes some silly turnovers in our zone but overall a good showing against arguably a top 5 team in the league. Maybe just optimistic buffalo fan in me. It's like getting mad over missed calls is just automatic, and then you remember what happens when they don't miss the calls.
It's a no-win situation for us right now. Most of the people I've seen doing that are people I've never or rarely seen here. I've been super embarrassed by our fans in general and their sense of entitlement lately. That booing the other night when Mittelstadt passed in the slot instead of shooting is bullshit. We should never boo a team except for lack of effort. We especially shouldn't boo a rookie who has to make a snap decision in one of the fastest, most physical sports that exists while we sit comfortably at a bird's eye view.
Our Bills fans have an amazing reputation, and Sabres fans usually do as well - but lately, it seems like the 10 game win streak has gone to a lot of people's heads and the brakes need some pumping. They played like trash that game and deserved to hear it. A personal attack is one thing, but booing the team for piss poor play is fine by me. Yeah, as a fan it's my right to boo or cheer when I see fit. My chirping on reddit has no affect on salaries or minutes played or trades.
It's just expressing my feelings of the game. If I can't boo safely online, what's the fucking point? The players owe you nothing but their best effort. If that's not good enough you need to find Housley, Botteril or Pegula and boo them. Otherwise all you're doing is creating a negative environment that could potentially hinder free agency signings down the road. Yeah, I'm not participating in GDTs anymore.
My issue isn't so much the complaining of other people, I stopped because I couldn't stop myself from getting caught up in it with everyone else. Sure the highs are higher when you share them with other fans, but the lows are also much lower, and we all know the lows have been much more frequent as of late. Would make it way easier to pick out the guys that give their teams a bad name so the rest of the sub doesn't get that rep.
Myself excluded, but I bitch everywhere and like to think I also add quality posts on occasion. I can't wait for the day I get banned for being an asshole because my team is steam rolling every other one see: maple laffs, toronto. It will be the happiest day of my life.

Can't agree with or get on board with that, get out. Telling people, players, refs, etc to die, get cancer, hope players get hurt, etc etc? That's the line. Lmao get the fuck outta here dude.
