Now, you may ask yourself (how did i get here?) this isn't 2p2, so what the hell are you talking about?
1st: GamesGrid is cool enough to extend the free backgammon
offer above to readers of my blog (it was originally for 2p2-iots), so I copied and pasted my 2+2 offer here
& made the requisite changes. w00t. Follow the directions above, no
money or 1st born child required. You don't have to even use my
affiliate link if you don't already have a poker/backgammon account
(though, if you do I'm donating all monies to Heifer International-- see my Whiskey inspired post for details.)
So go on, hook yourself up with a free BG membership on the grid, I'll
wait :) It really is *the* place to play real-money backgammon online (Robertiesez so, and such comments on 2p2
were the inspiration for the offer in the 1st place), and even if you
don't want to play *now,* the membership is good for a year and, who
knows what you'll want in a year ;)
FWIW, I earn nothing (no commission, no etc.) if you sign up or not. I
just think it's a really good deal with no strings attached, and am
excited about it. Feel free to pass it along, since ... well, I think free is good.
2) I love a good story. Backstory, frontstory, whatever. Especially
when someone's trying to sell give me something. So
So the grid's been fielding a lot of BG questions from poker players,
mainly from the Other Gambling Games forum and the Internet Gambling forum on 2+2.
The awesome people at GamesGrid put together this "try me free"
backgammon offer for 2p2'ers (can I reiterate, $80 value?! no playthru,
raked hands, etc?!), and I go ahead
and get permission from a zoo mod to post it and do. You know I like to be a
tongue-in-cheeky monkey, so of couse I add my little bit at the end:
"ps, mod already approved post, I win!"
I thought it was funny :)
Anyhow, apparently another mod didn't think so...
Great. [insert b!tch and moan here...] Even though every other new site
with some 2p2 only promo can post their offers, and they don't bother
asking anyone how okay it is and threads don't get locked cos, well
(nobodylikesmeeverybodyhatesmeguessillgoeatworms) ... *mine* is the one
that gets locked. Nonono... not locked, DELETED.
The one offer that doesn't ask for raked hands, for real money
deposits, etc.to be valid. And ja, the grid *does* run ads there too...
not that it matters but everyone always has something to say about
adspace there. [/end complaining]
I guess it's okay. I'm just disheartened that's all, glad to get my
account back, ::grovelgrovel:: I went thru withdrawls, cos I'm hard
[edit: heya matt, I *did* get unbanned :) sorry if that wasn't clear!
ive been posting up a dustbunnystorm in oot. yeah...]
So, thanks to that turn of that screw, a good offer was just festering
away and I was able to convince the grid to let me post it here. Who
knows, someone looking for bondage poker bunnies (this is getting way
too specialized, googlegod) may like to play backgammon, too.
