#Christmas2016: (@BrilliantGames) #SantaClaus Army’s Fall

There was no other possible ending to this battle:

At least, as the battle presented to us here. So many mistakes made it’s not even funny.

Right off the bat the Penguins had a 2.75 to 1 advantage over the Santa Claus (SC) army. You can tell by the end of the video that the Penguin army’s leaping of the ledges did nothing for them, but they died in such small numbers that it did not help the SC army.

Second, the Penguins had the high ground. Honestly, even Sun Tzu knew the high ground was important:

With regard to precipitous heights, if you are beforehand with your adversary, you should occupy the raised and sunny spots, and there wait for him to come up. If the enemy has occupied them before you, do not follow him, but retreat and try to entice him away.

The SC army had taken the narrow pass of a box canyon, but did not install a garrison:

With regard to narrow passes, if you can occupy them first, let them be strongly garrisoned and await the advent of the enemy. Should the army forestall you in occupying a pass, do not go after him if the pass is fully garrisoned, but only if it is weakly garrisoned.

The Penguins was able to surround the SC army at the entrance of the narrow pass of the box canyon and push them back with their superior numbers. If the SC army had installed a garrison or had been a heavy infantry (the killing of the very last Santa Claus showed how weak a class of infantry the SC army was), then it might have been a different story altogether.

Up and down, the Santa Claus army made one bad mistake after another. Nothing else gets you in the spirit of Christmas than seeing an army of 11,000 Penguins gut the weaker 4,000 Santa Claus army.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

#FridayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “The E-Wing Workshop”

“Oh my goodness, Adorellan.” said Santa Claus putting his gloved hand over his nose. “How long has E-Wing been abandon?”

“Fifty years, sir.” answered Adorellan behind his clipboard.

“Well, I want it up and running again in a month.” said Santa. “With Pokémon Go as popular as it is, we are going to be flooded with Pokémon toy requests.”

Santa started to leave, but Adorellan stood his ground.

“Yes…” said Santa Claus nervously. Santa noticed Adorellan was on his smart phone.

Adorellan put his smart phone away. “Nothing!”

“Then come, Adorellan. We have much to do until Christmas time comes!”

Friend Moe Lane put up a challenge. I took it and ran with it. It was refreshing, because Bing has begun to bore me. I hope you enjoy!

#FridayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Reindeer Apocalypse”

“I’ve counted 637, sir.” said the head elf reindeer wrangler, Pax. Other elves dashing to and fro, calling out reindeer names.

“There’s more than that, I would say!” Santa Claus said trying to count them himself. “Where did they all come from?!”

“We are still trying to figure that out sir.” answered Pax. “We are honestly having trouble finding Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen in all this mess.”

“Well, round twelve of them up. We do not have time to sort them out.” said Santa. “And try to find Rudolph, he should not be hard to find!”

Merry Christmas Everyone! My shorts have been depressing of late and for that, I apologize. Today’s image comes from Bing, since Darleen is taking the day off.

Christmas Tauntauns

“Christmas Tauntauns” will send everyone who grew up in the 80s back to their childhood. I know it does me. If you ever were a kid when Star Wars came out or shortly there after, you grew up in the early days of toy-tie-ins. Everything that came out aimed at kids had toys that came with it.

Sometimes they had bad results. I had #34 Pizzaface, #30. Stinkor, #28. Orbear, one #10. Eco Warrior, and yes, one Ithorian.

God, I loved my childhood. I remember that I used to have a Toy Army, with each toy had a function and a neat chain of command (with me at the top, of course). We go out and battle the evil toy army that I also built or big single evil toys.

Of couse as a child, you think Christmas is all about you. Of course when you grow up, you realize that is complete bunk. Christmas is a hoilday for the adults as well. In fact, I think we love the ride more than you kids will ever imagine.

And yes, Santa Claus is very much real. I don’t care what anyone says. Tell them that BigGator5 personally vouches for the big guy in the red suit.

I also want to leave off with one of my favorite Christmas story ever:

8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Well, see ya’ later!
