Given: Simpsorama; The Rick and Morty guest couch gag on the Simpsons (Mathlete’s Feat); and This scene (from same): I want this to be a thing: Ideally during the third season of Rick and Morty.

Posted by & filed under BLOG, Skirmish, Traveller.

I wanted to play some straight SNAPSHOT scaled up to 25-32mm so I tracked down this pic of the counter sheet from the original game: You can find it here on Grognardia.
