I’m sorry, I don’t care much for Walking Dead >: 

So my car has been having problems for a while now, and about a year ago I was advised by a mechanic I’d have to get the head gasket replaced some time in the future. We’ve got a lot of road trips coming up and so I took it in- it’s been leaking coolant pretty fast for a while but I was told as long as I kept on top of it and made sure it had coolant and oil in it, everything would be okay until I could get the head gasket replaced.
Apparently if you’ve got a coolant leak, it can combine with the oil in your engine and cause the engine to become ‘Sludged’, which I did not know. Also, the engine also has a rod knock and other damage to it, which, we don’t know if the car came shitty or became shitty over the course of us having it or what, but still- The mechanic I took it to said to replace the head gasket it would cost a ‘little over $3,000’. Plus the timing belt needs to be fixed. Then he calls back and says, after looking at the whole engine, that it’s just in bad shape. It’s possible the last guy I took it to used some kind of anti-leak stuff that caused the sludging to become even worse as well. Faaabulous. He suggests that we get a whole new engine.
And here’s the rub. I have a 2.5 engine in there, that’s what that subaru came with. After some googling, apparently the 2.5 engine is riddled with problems, the largest and most common one being that it’s head gasket parts aren’t the proper size so they don’t fit quite right and replacements are pretty much a guaranteed necessity to keep the car functioning well- To the point where Subaru actually started a campaign to let the original Subaru owners of the cars know about the issue so they could get it repaired before it got to the point where I’m at now. It’s a known problem with these engines and the manufacturer has actually admitted it. A used 2.5 engine has around 50k miles on it, and the bad leaking starts at around 100k miles. So in just 50k miles I’d need to buy new head gaskets for this new engine. That’s how dumb this is. 
Fortunately he said he can replace it with a 2.0 engine, though it’s not the official model that the car is supposed to have, it should most likely work, according to Google and Subaru, so I do believe that it will work. But then I get all these idjits on reddit laughing at me for it and I’m like, I can either buy a new engine that has no known flaws, or I can buy an engine that has multiple known flaws and pay to repair this new-to-me engine. And you guys are laughing at ME? Hah! 
Either way, it’s all butts. Everything is butts today.

Alriiiight, third and last resource card! Made a few small changes to the other cards, added the Victory Points etc. We were invited to a friend’s birthday party and we got four other people to test play the game and it was a big hit! It’s really cool seeing other people play out prototype game and enjoy it, so I’m really excited to get this game finished.

seriouslystella replied to your post: Okay, I think this one’s a keeper!

Is Blackwood Manor going to be co-op or competitive? Either way, I’m super excited about it! I love your character designs so far. Please keep sharing!

It’s mostly competitive, but the thing I like the most about the concept is that if you die, you become a ghost and are actively trying to kill the still living players. So while you want to win the game, you also don’t want anyone to die, because that would mean there would be an active ghost able to chase you down and make winning the game that much harder, and the ghosts are co-operative because their objective to ‘win’ the game is to make sure that no living players win the game.
