Re: The End

I haven't been on it a while but I thought I would drop in and see if something interesting had happened since I logged in last. I think restarting the game by the community is a great idea.

My wife did give me a Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington metal Turvis tumbler which was pretty neat. It has a couple of dozen Jack Skellington faces with ...
