Please be seated, Deleteheads. The crowdfunding Kickcheater campaign for '''Trogdor!! The Board Game''' is live at last (like my fav Sabbath record) at {{p|l=https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1999933720/trogdor-the-board-game THIS LINK RIGHT HERE}}!
 +
 +
There's plenty to check out there including a Boardelectrix commercial (I can never tell if it's retro, ironic, or if they honestly don't know what decade it is) and a gameplay demo with yours truly, the Deathly Pallor, in my very own tabletop review show ''''Six-Sadded, Die.''''
 +
 +
If you like what you see, be sure and pledge it up so tabletop burnination can become a reality for all. Aaand so I can finally get revenge on Strong Bad for burning my chiaroscuro dragon drawing. It's a cooperative game but I can sabotage SB's efforts from the ''inside''! Like ''ophiocordyceps unilateralis'', the zombie fungus that takes over insects' brains and makes them do its bidding!

Sneak peek time, Deleteheads. HomestarRunner.com is working on a {{p|l=http://new.homestarrunner.com redesigned front page}} that will work on all devices without Flash. That's right, the website is finally being brought into the year...
 +
 +
Well, about 2007 from the looks of it. But hey, that's better than nothing, right? Give it a spin! See what you like and what you hate. Don't worry, the old Flash version of the site will always be available right up until Adobe throws the killswitch (I'm campaigning to make Strong Bad the one who actually throws it!).

Please be seated, Deleteheads. {{p|l=https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1999933720/trogdor-the-board-game The Kickcheater campaign}} to fund the production of '''Trogdor!! The Board Game''' has almost reached its close.
 +
 +
Nearly 20,000 kind souls have pledged to help bring this game to life so far. And best of all, they raised enough money to create alternate Trodgor meeples including my very own chiaroscuro shaded Burninator! Sadly, he has to share that honor with Coach Z's Wormdingler which is unsettling just to type out.

The campaign '''ends''' on '''Wednesday August 15th at 6pm EST'''. So if you still want to secure a copy of the game, {{p|l=https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1999933720/trogdor-the-board-game CLICK HERE}} to head to the Kickcheater page and pledge it on up!

The Deleteheads Download is a Homestar Runner email newsletter started by The Brothers Chaps in 2018 to share news and exclusive previews of new or upcoming Homestar Runner material with fans, and is the second such newsletter, the first having been discontinued in 2003. Installments are presented by Strong Sad's character as leader of The Deleteheads, using Strong Sad's email address (depressio@homestarrunner.com). The option to sign up was first offered on January 13, 2018 (Trogday), as part of several updates to the Index Page.

Please be seated, Deleteheads!

Just dropping you all a line to say thanks for validating my unhealthy obsession with my own brother. And to give you an exclusive peek at Stinkoman Level 10!

We here at Deleteheads Central (aka underneath this Afghan Whigs afghan blanket on my bed with an old Lappy) managed to get a hold of Videlectrix Two himself via land line and he smuggled us this gif of a new destructible floor block in action via 1600 baud dial-up modem.

Sadly, Videlectrix One stormed in before he could send me any more and started ranting about "Grood Gaphics." When Two tried to correct him, it only made things worse.

A couple days later, I got this photo in the mail. Videlectrix Two says he found it on the floor of the 'Boardalectrix' offices next door. To what does this portend?!

Let the rampant, unchecked speculation begin!

There's plenty to check out there including a Boardelectrix commercial (I can never tell if it's retro, ironic, or if they honestly don't know what decade it is) and a gameplay demo with yours truly, the Deathly Pallor, in my very own tabletop review show 'Six-Sadded, Die.'

Sneak peek time, Deleteheads. HomestarRunner.com is working on a redesigned front page that will work on all devices without Flash. That's right, the website is finally being brought into the year...

Well, about 2007 from the looks of it. But hey, that's better than nothing, right? Give it a spin! See what you like and what you hate. Don't worry, the old Flash version of the site will always be available right up until Adobe throws the killswitch (I'm campaigning to make Strong Bad the one who actually throws it!).

2 Days Left of Trognarok!

Please be seated, Deleteheads. The Kickcheater campaign to fund the production of Trogdor!! The Board Game has almost reached its close.

Nearly 20,000 kind souls have pledged to help bring this game to life so far. And best of all, they raised enough money to create alternate Trodgor meeples including my very own chiaroscuro shaded Burninator! Sadly, he has to share that honor with Coach Z's Wormdingler which is unsettling just to type out.

The campaign ends on Wednesday August 15th at 6pm EST. So if you still want to secure a copy of the game, CLICK HERE to head to the Kickcheater page and pledge it on up!

But if you still need some convincing, there's a PRINT & PLAY version available for download so you can test-drive Trogdor yourself or at least take a peek at the rules and see if cooperative burnination is right for you and your family!

And last, there's another installment of my tabletop review show Six-Sadded, Die. In this episode, my thrifting pal Lucky Yates and I try to remember the rules to an obscure Boardelectrix familial dynamics game 'Don't Make Daddy P.O.'d.'

You can find the video here in this Kickcheater update. Lucky respects me for my taste in driftwood pigeons and, of course, country dish towels.
