Brikwars-related inside jokes and the stories behind them

Postby aybraus » Thu Apr 10, 2008 1:51 pm

I'd say that the biggest inside joke for our Brikwars group was born when I was in a 1-on-1 game with my friend, Austin. I decided to make my army centered around a giant Zeppelin made of Rokenbok pieces (it looked like crap).
Austin decided to send a pilot down to attack it, but on my turn I decided to fire on him. He didn't notice that on my ship, underneath two wing-like panels, I had placed secret guns! And so "Secret Guns" became a catchphrase of sorts for all of our battles' surprising outcomes.

Is Rokenbok another awful clone brand?

Always when I can't finish a battle on time the space ninjas come and ruin every thing by blowing up the objectives or by spraying toxic gas every where and killing both teams there hero's by telleporting out of their space ship right behind them and slice their heads of.

Rokenbok is an ungodly expensive German(Maybee?) toy line focusing on R/C controlled moving parts. There was once a Rokenbok display set at the math themed store on the hill where I lived; it was kind of fun using the little dump trucks to scoop up all the little plastic marbles and drop them down all the chutes and into the monorails.

But they have minifigs of their own, so yes they are a clone brand I guess.

But really more like playmobil.

In my birthday, less than a month ago, i played Quikwars with a friend of mine, because he didn't have time to learn Brikwars. It was my first battle against an actual opponent. The objective was to obtain the treasure chest from the opponent's base.

-I chose 5 or 6 vehicles and moved them forward. All of them destroyed.

-Desperatly, i sent all my troops except 3 that were guarding the chest. All of them died in a confrontation with Battle Droids, after being bombed by a starfighter.

-All my heroes(3) were in danger. 2 died.

-Even more desperatly, i sent Obi-Wan, the last hero, in an Heroic Feat. It worked, he made a leaping jump from one extreme of the battlefield to another. Unfortunately, while grabbing the chest, a Rebel Trooper killed him. :cry:

-My last trooper entered in the hole used to hide the treasure chest and started constructing a shelter. Damn Battle Droid, used his sniper to wipe the last survivor down.

It was very, very, very funny.

My brikwars inside joke is Timmy the Dimmy.

Timmy the Dimmy is a captain in my army, and he got his name because of the outrageous bad luck he has in living. He can't live more than one round in ANY game. He dies, then gets healed, then dies, then gets healed, then dies, then my medics give up on him. To make it worse, he only ever dies from either friendly fire or his own critical failures (Once got three 1s in a row).

That is Timmy the Dimmy. He eats misfortune for breakfast.

As my name is Tim, i take offense at the massive number of "Timmy the Dimmy"s. I'm going to name mine George the Dimmy. George is much more hilarious to destroy. :P

No one can die as much as Timmy the Dimmy. My country has stopped awarding purple hearts because of his very existence. The production costs of the pins were as much as the rest of every campaigns' other costs.

Magic Wrench.

In my latest battle, I had a mechanic with a wrench. (I couldn't find a better weapon for him at that moment.) So, he went into enemy territory in his vehicle and got knocked off.

Then, he killed three other soldiers with his wrench, including a hero, and then for the last kill he threw it at a retreating soldier and it lodged in his throat.

I decided his wrench was magic.
Time travel's been getting me down.

Lethal Trees have been a device used since one of my first Brikwars. Two squads of enemy minifigs repeatedly attempted to crush eachother with a large evergreen. This act was expanded upon with a rediculous vehicle with a bush mounted on the front which dealt 3d20 damage, needless to say Lethal Trees will probably be used again.

My Brikwars inside joke is Crazy Bob. He is a minifig, with a half-cape, intensely spiked clothes, and he talks in a gruff, cowboy accent. He's almost like a cross between Hagrid and Yosemite Sam. Crazy Bob is known for his disregard of things like physics, laws, and especially all brikwars rules. In his first Brikwar, he drove his dune buggy to the entire other side of the battlefield (in one second), where it crashed in the middle of the enemy's base. He got out, and then he saw some enemies. So he put his cape over his head and said "OH, I'm just a lil' pilgram, look't me, don't hurt me, I ain't nuttin butta pilgram, don' mind me..." ... then he ran inside the enemy command center and took out a chicken leg and slapped them all really hard in the face with it, and they all cried like babies, then he his under the table and wet his pants, then teleported home with his patented teleporter mustache. (all of this happened with no rules at all, I just picked up his dune buggy, smashed it into my brother's base right during a brikwar, and acted out the scene with my hands, Bob slapping all and knocking minifigs over left and right. My brother said "HEY YOU CAN'T DO THAT ITS NOT IN THE RULES HEY HEY HEY!!" So I gave him a good whack in the noggin with my hammer of discipline and he shut up.)

"I'M CRAZY BOB, ALL YE STUPID ROTTIN' PIGFACED VARMINTS!! I'LL KILL ALL OF YEH!!! DDDDIIIIIIEEE!!!!! YEEEEHAAW!!!!" *Crash* "HAHAHAHA!! SUCKERS!!!" *SLAP* *SLAP*
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

Some inside jokes at my club are:

darth insidious with is 'force'. Everytime the player would use a heroic feat to push,kill, strangle etc, he would fail EVERYTIME. So I decided that whenever he does something using the force, he would get the effects to, even if he fails. So if he strangles someone , he strangles himself.
so whenever anyone uses the 'force' we know the outcome

Brush man, I don't know why or how this is funny but he was a man with a simple smiley face, full orange torso and legs with a large blue brush from a carwash set stuck on his head. He would sit on the highest point of the tallest terrain piece, usually a small ariel or something ridiculously small.

oh and the opposite law, when you really need something to work well, it doesn't i.e rolling a 1 or my sandmen army that it is guaranteed, that 70% of the weapons will blow up due to rolling ones (even when shoving stuff).

And another is when someone gets shot, they fly in the opposite direction of basic physics.
