no he probably meant that you should always bring fudge to the battlefield.
as it is delicious.

minifigs can dual wield any weapon they want, if the situation is awesome enough.
(oh damn did I like my minifig dual wielding snipercannons just to take out an aircraft heading towards him and blasting the explosive barrels behind him)

minifigs with a stealth ability can not be targeted if less than half of its body is visible to the attacking minifig. as they are also incredibly silent, minifigs then have absolutely no idea he is there.
fire negates all stealth abilities, because they make a minifig scream in pain and run around randomly.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

I stole this from someone but...

The rule of fun. If a heroic feat is funny enough to make the host (or other player) laugh then the feat automatically happens.

I used this a few times before and I must admit it fits perfectly into the Brikwars setting.

I use a very similar rule. The funnier or more inefficient an effort is, the more likely it is to succeed. I've seen players so humored by a potential stupendous feat that they refused to roll in opposition, even though their troops would perish!

Bruce Willis knocking out a chopper with a police car is an excellent example.

Actually my rule. I'm glad someone was able to use it.

That's right, I can't believe I couldn't remember who posted it. Thanks for jogging my memory!

Peaches and gingers are to be the primary targets at the beginning of every battle.

A World of Chaos
Wierd things may happen during the game.

Examples:
    -Reality is the result of the player's thoughts. If a player says "At least there's not a hungry T-Rex rampaging through town." said T-Rex will likely show up.
    -Big Red Button: I once built a pressable red button and stuck it on the field to see how long before someone pressed it. It awoke a giant plasma beetle (per Starship Troopers).
    -My wife will walk by, survey the carnage, and declare "That trooper with the C4 is a traitor sworn to kill his officer in charge" and walk out.
    -A dead horse once swoll to the size of an elephant, and was used as protective cover.

Summon Bigger Fish

Any suitable unit (eg, jedis) can be given the ability to Summon Bigger Fish at 8 CP. Summon Bigger Fish has an UR of 5 and creates a size 4 fish 8" above any point of the battlefield. Then the fish falls to the ground (unless the battle is taking place under water, in which case it will behave in a fishy fashion).

Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

as long as no one takes a dumb on my battlefeild

we have a rule that if a minifig survives three incidents on one turn that would surely kill him, he is given the title jesus. i doesn't do anything, but its fun to say "your guy got sniped by jesus". we had one battle that ended with jesus kamikazing a helicopter into abe lincolns speed boat.

When rolling scatter dice because of missed explosives, sixes spawn other scatter dice just like any other critical success.
They are coming! I feel them scratching inside my mind, scratching, screaming, running, so many- so, so many voices. They're coming for us - flesh, body and soul!
