Cobbled Cosplay

We had two most excellent Cobbled Cosplay contests this week. Monday’s Round 1 featured the Man at Arms Sixth Scale Figure by Mondo. By the power of Grayskull, Christine T. emerged victorious!

Wednesday’s Round 2 had players competing for — and dressing as — the Bill & Ted Sixth Scale Figure Set by Blitzway. Shanon K. won the prize as well as an honorary spot in the Wyld Stallyns band.


Win, Lose, or DIE

On Thursday, Missy Haywood shared her original story entitled “Mall of Madness.” Contestants played along live, competing for Sideshow Rewards. NO ONE SURVIVED! So a random pool of participants split some Sideshow Rewards.

Rewatch or play along with this and other epic, interactive choose-your-own-adventure stories with our Win, Lose, or DIE! YouTube Playlist.
