Bi. Some of those other gamers hoping to be selected are women.

I predict that he will get picked, simply so we can see a winter-een-mas tournament in action!

At least one of the characters will anyway.

I predict that he will not be picked …for comedy of seeing him suffer

So that’s what your loins are saying? You know that you’re risking to be challenged to a loins fight, right?

He won’t, but Lucas will. And so will Emily. And Scott. And even Scott’s penguin.
I guarantee you that Ethan will then try to bribe everyone to give up their spot, only to find out he can’t do that.

I predict his name does get picked but the one year his name got picked it was in a game he is superbad at and hates a lot.^^

My and not my loins guess would be that Lucas will be picked.
Emily being picked also crossed my mind, but
– I don’t think she even applied for the Crown Bowl
– we already had once before Lilah having been picked for a certain closed Beta

Emily has definitely applied, she even mentioned how she hopes she get picked.

I am just interested in what game they gonna compete with and if Ethan’s name does get pulled but he has to play a game he SUCKS in. xD

Or he picks a game he’d usually be good at, but he’s off his usual standard because he’s been practicing other games

I don’t know how good Ethan is in this version of the comic, but I’m pretty sure in the original he sucked at EVERY game.

Not really fair challenging to a fight to the death when you can respawn.

My thoughts are Lilah and Ethan both get picked, maybe Emily not sure.

All loins aside, I’m digging the variety of crowns I’m seeing in this arc. Emily’s circlet and the laurel wreath from this issue are particularly are fun designs. I kind of hope that – should Ethan actually win the crown – said crown turns out to be a petite tiara, rather than the stereotypical big, dramatic imperial crown. Something about the image of Ethan proudly displaying a dainty little tiara on a velvet pillow (or cradling protectively it, as he whispers sweet nothings) strikes me as funny. Admittedly, it sounds more like something I’d expect to see in 1.0, and… Read more »

I enjoy the thought put into it and the attention to detail – it things like this that make the world feel more robust and real. I also appreciate the fact that it’s worked in organically, as an established facet of the world that just *is*, without needing attention called to it. I’m sure it’s tempting to have a character point out things like this out (“Hey, I like your crown! I went with this design this year.”), but I personally appreciate the credit being given to us as an audience to notice/discover (or not notice/discover) the little things on… Read more »

Back on page 3 they had a poster of the main crown. Or at least the crown that year, I suppose it could change design every year.

Three other competitors walk in, confused, one holding a sirloin steak, one holding a jar with a lionfish in it, and one with a full grown lion walking beside them.
The Loin Fight has begun.

As long as were including dyslexics, Loni Anderson should show up too.

Has the nature of Winter-een-mas or the bowl been discussed yet?

Hey Tim have you ever considered attempting to create a Games Bowl in real life?

I realize that the logistics of this would be right up there with a full on gaming convention, plus the liability would be insane… But it’s nice to dream!

Tell you what man, I ever win it big, I will bank roll a games bowl. Would love to see something like that.

I think it’s gonna be Emily that gets picked this year, and Emily getting to live out Ethan’s dream is gonna be one of the things that drives them apart because Ethan won’t be able to just be happy for her.

I hope I’m wrong about the second part. I really like Emily, and want to see more of her.

The Stelara ad is autoplaying with sound, Tim. It’s just a second or two of keys on a keyboard being pressed, so it is not too obtrusive, but thought I should let you know.
