Since XXXX-Day is too long...

May I suggest "XD4", after that alien CON Job that hit the theaters a few
years ago?

(PS: Next year, I'll be organizing a planned INWO game, with a pre-tuned
OBD* and rules handouts that can be understood in minutes instead of a
45-minute rules explanation.)

* One Big Deck; a mix of the INWO SubGenius cards and regular INWO cards,
which makes it a little more fun than just regular INWO SubGenius.

Now that's the idea. Kill "Bob" was a big success because it was fresh and
new, and someone BESIDES the Heirarchy was handling it. "Bob" knows those
guys (and gals) have enough to do just putting up with the pagans in the first
place. Imagine what X-Day IV, or whatever, would be like if six or seven
DIFFERENT folks each tried their OWN event...

I was thinking X-Day to the Fourth Power: When Will They Learn?

Of course it would properly be printed:

4
X-Day

Or something thereabouts.

That'd be awesome. I'm down.

Very true. Hay PK, send your email to phloighd at yahoo dot com,
wouldja?

Still attached to the hobby you abandoned in seventh grade,

Not to mention sinking bucks into it. Many thought I was committing
heresy by not *charging* to play. One thing I neglected to mention
during the intro ceremonies was that there *was* a charge and a ticket
was required, but the good news was that you were probably wearing it
already. Hopefully next time a collection can be taken so that the
pain is spread a little wider.

But as Troutwaxer pointed out, organization is sometimes a *good*
thing. One doesn't want to detract from anyone else's fine events and
be blamed for causing somebody to miss, oh say, even prettier naked
boobies.

BTW, how long did I last against Evangela? Time went all funny and I
can't remember. I know I sucked, I'm just not sure how bad.

Still sore,

I've been wondering about that. Other ideas include: X4, 4XD, X4D, X-Day
Four, X-Four, FourX, and so on...

No, it should be The FourthComing.

I also considered "Quadrophenia," but it might be in bad taste
to use this one.

Why not enclose "X-Day" in parentheses:
(X-Day)
raise it to the fourth power:
(X-Day)^4
and then expand it:
X^4 - 4aDX^3y + 6a^2D^2X^2y^2 - 4a^3D^3Xy^3 + a^4D^4y^4

ok, maybe not.

actually, that would make a pretty kick-ass tee shirt graphic.
