Featuring The Mars Attacks Dice Game and Game of Thrones Season Five Trailer!
Good damn morning El Moochadores. We got a big day today. Coming up later today we’ve got a new Moocast, and some book reviews, but first: The Morning Moo and it’s light scrape of the internet’s creamy surface! Let’s kick things off with that weird photo above of Cobra Commander receiving the keys to the city of Springfield, Illinois. This image, and information, comes to us via Comic Book Resources (CBR), who reported that Mayor J. Michael Houston award the keys of the city to the leader of Cobra in anticipation of G.I. JOE Con 2015 which will take place at the Prairie Capital Convention Center on April 9th to the 12th. According to the CBR article; Upon receiving the award Cobra Commander said
Springfielders near and far, I accept your mayor’s generous gift… And let it be known that I too bring a gift for every man, woman and child of this city that is so near and dear to my heart: an invitation to join with me. Join Cobra!
Damn. Too bad Chudd and I don’t live in Springfield, Illinois. We would totally take him up on that offer and then we could be like Tomaz and Zamot, but (y’know) with out all the money, fighting skills, and looks.
…and in other internet stuffs:
Mars Attacks: The Dice Game!
Maybe you’re a fan of the trading cards, comic books, or maybe even the mid ’90’s movie, but now you can totally love the Mars Attacks: The Dice Game from Steve Jackson Games. The game, based on the trading cards from Topps, is meant for 3 to 6 players and the objective is to “Destroy cities, get your picture taken in front of famous monuments, and be the Martian with the most Earthling kills!” Keen. I’ve posted a couple of promotional videos below, but hit the link above for more information about the game. Just remember, “Nukes are bad.”
