Broadside 2012 this Sunday, Rejects WW1 Demo Game.....

.....and a story about a magic trick!

The Rejects will be at Broadside 2012 this Sunday with our WW1 Battle of Amiens 1918 demo game........

...a sneak pic of the practice demo game we played last Sunday.




......and now a story about a magic trick!

Many years ago back in Dublin, me and the boys were out drinking and we ended up in a posh hotel bar, for some reason they were hosting a magic show with a reasonably famous magician and his quite risqué magic show (amazing female assistants).
So anyway the show was good until he requested a volunteer from the audience to help with an old magic trick, my mates volunteered me and really fecking reluctantly I agreed.

He asked me to loan him my watch....... which I did, he asked me to place it in a red velvet bag that his assistant handed me...and I did, he then took the bag and with a large fecking hammer that he produced from his inside his cloak he proceeded to knock the faeces out of the bag and then he asked to go back to the seat.......
....very, very reluctantly I returned to my seat to the sound of my mates laughing their heads off, I sat down when all of a sudden the magician shouted at me and threw the red velvet bag to me......

......I reached inside the bag and took out a doughnut and I bit into it and guess what was in it...........










....JAM!!!!!!

  6. That story was very unsatisfying! Please tell me you got your watch back!

    The tanks look good. I especially like the logs on the front of the first one.

  21. Enjoy the demoing this weekend.. looking forward to the feedback and comments you all will be posting afterwards..

    And yeah.. what happened to the watch? And how good was the donut?

  22. There will be times where doughnuts become more value than a watch...believe me ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Awesome donut... ;) good luck with the show!

    ReplyDelete
  24. It would have been way too impressive if there was a watch inside the doughnut.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hope you guys have a great game this weekend. Nice donut Mr L but it doesn't tell the time like a watch!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Tanks look good. Moral of the story , don't wear nice watches to magic shows, don't trust your friends ?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Fair swap Homer, I mean Fran. Good luck for the weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I never wear watches, but I'll never say no to a donut. Especially jam filled ones.

    Good luck with the demo.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Donuts taste better than watches. Good luck with the show!

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOL Jam? That was kind of a let down, should have been the watch, crappy magician hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  31. What you lost in a watch you made up for in jelly doughnuts. A fair trade, no?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Donuts? Was this before or after you went into security? ;)

    Hope to make it down to Kent on Sunday so that I can pay homage to Postie and take the mickey out of you and Ray :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Mmmm.... doughnuts. Now if you'd eaten it WITH the watch inside THAT would have been a real magic trick. But then you'd have to wait to pass the time.... geddit? :-o

    The tanks look terrific BTW.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Take cover behind the tank!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ya but wait.... where's the fucking watch!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Was it an expensive watch? And was it a good doughnut? Seems like a fair trade I guess....

    ReplyDelete
  37. Tanks look great, also unusual to see vehicles on bases.

    Doughnuts look great too, unusual to see so much jam.

    Watch, disappointing, unusual to see no picture

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wishing you all a great time this wknd. And hunkering down behind a tank is a good thing!

    ReplyDelete
  39. that looks mighty epic (both pics :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow, thats a harsh magic trick! or a very funny joke!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. ... AHAHAHA I would hate that magician forever. I mean, cough. Food!

    ReplyDelete
  42. i take it you won the battle, since your tanks werent on fire like rays

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd have been happy with a custard donut but jam is taking the piss.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Have a great time at the show, Fran, and remember to smile!
    (Also, if you make tank noises whilen they're moving and firing I find they seem to last longer... Just sayin'.)
