Default A Spleefing good time

So earlier tonight the stars aligned and we had a few eager Spleefers on. Obsi, Bazz and I headed down to Espesh's grand arena and tried our hand at spleefing.

First impression - a huge congratulations to Espesh, it's an awesome arena. A job well done. I was particularly fond of the many ways to die (more on that later).

We opted for some simple rules:
  • Iron shovel only
  • All in brawl, last one standing wins
  • No direct physical contact with other players (Obsi!)

Although Bazz and I both managed to pull out a few wins with one epically (is that a word) close finish, the recurring theme of the night seemed to be Obsi's dominance. I had you down for 4 in a row to close out the night, a golden shovel for your effort.

Some highlights:
  • Bazz and his golden shovel (which he held only once I think)
  • Bazz dying by suffocation (and dropping his golden shovel)
  • Hoathy dying by Obsi (oh how I wish I had the screenshot to prove that)
  • The invention of double layered Spleef
  • The failure that was chess Spleef (one block each at a time)
  • Obsi's mad spleef skills

All in all it was huge fun. Can't wait to do it again.

PS. Espesh we made a little safety bridge over the pit of death, I forgot to take it down when we were done. It's only a few blocks of dirt.

Haha, yes, about as exciting as watching grass grow really...

I'll have to bring some iron shovels over with me next time, to replace the ones we used up. I also spawned some snow, since we went through a lot.

As a spectator to some of these games, it was quite quick and exciting. I was never sure quite sure how far away any of the players' digging would reach and whether the snow would suddenly disappear from under Obsi's feet.

Fast and Flurrious!

Chess Spleef was awesome! it had shovels, it had players... it had.....had....
Ok - was actually rubbish.

But double layered spleef is now my faourite mode!

Was a lot of fun, and nice to see you all fell for my display of inept skills - see you in the offical season, where my true skills in the frozen arena will be shown in all their dazzling glory!

(And if any one is any good at making skins, I'm in the market for a spleefing costume...I'm thinking spandex in mexican wrestling style - "El Bazz" must look awesome and terrifying!)

Next thing you'll be telling us that there is a Star Trek Version of Spleef. (Three-dimensional chess)
