    2D gets religious as QB gets back on track.

    It's disaster for Penfailed though, could that be it, has QB done enough?

    Question 4: Stephen King has co-written a number of novels - name one.


    Straub and King were an interesting pair. Collaborating on this gem:

    latest?cb=20170430161455


    Or how about when he co-wrote one with his son Owen? (Which has been picked up by AMC of Walking Dead fame for a possible series)

    Other people grow babies in the time it took this sheep to run, and I changed absolutely not at all. Booo. I'm really disappointed in myself. :(


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 1,442 ✭✭✭ Choc Chip


    Really enjoyed the game Necro, I love King. I'm just disappointed i was so boring.

    Great game though! Has cheered me up as i absolutely destroyed a website... :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭ Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Congrats Quickbeam!

    Great game Necro! Easily one of my favourite SHEEP to date, even if I made some silly decisions along the way.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 16,286 Mod ✭✭✭✭ quickbeam


    Thanks Necro. Tough going with Boards as it was.

    Not bad considering I haven’t read most of the books questioned here. Counted them up earlier and I’ve only 11 read. Need to fix that fairly pronto.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,204 ✭✭✭ Penfailed


    As this was my first venture into this forum, I'm a bit clueless... What's PEEHS? Are there other versions other than Sheep and PEEHS? Maybe there's a FAQ that I've missed...

    PEEHS is opposite of Sheep. Lowest (correct) answer is best. Consider it s as Pointless to Sheep’s Family Fortunes.

    Sheep = find most popular answer
    Heeps = find 2and most popular answer
    Peehs = find least popular answer

    Hope that clarifies things :pac:

    And welcome to FG...stick around and play some more :)

    Turns out today was rather fitting for a Stephen King reveal.

    46 yrs ago to the DAY he released his debut novel, Carrie :D


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 16,286 Mod ✭✭✭✭ quickbeam


    So *that's* why it took 9 months!! The stars had to align :)
