Continuing the tradition.

Unfortunately, it was my turn in the barrel recently. I pleaded guilty and now I'm paying my debt to society.

You can enter with as many posts as you like. I'll put your user names (once) on a piece of paper. Let's go about 96 hours, enough time for everyone to see and play. We'll end, this Monday the 19th at 9:00PM EST. I'll do a random drawings and post the results shortly there after.

There will be two giveaway.

The prizes: A prison token (to reminder you to stay out of jail and not get banned) and a Wounded Eagle (to remind you of the pain) 🤣 😂 👍

Here are the prizes:

Giveaway #1

Giveaway #2

Who's playing?

Gotta go, my probation officer is at the door.

    It's a known die variety. A die gouge that looks like a spear.

  • erwindocerwindoc Posts: 4,927 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Neat give-a-way! Welcome back and thanks! Either of those would go just fine in my collection. You better be careful, I know a couple of old guards from up north in New York State. I bet one of them would get a kick out of the prison tokens.

  • jesbrokenjesbroken Posts: 9,246 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Glad for your reprieve. Thanks for the game. I went thru countless rolls of Sacs and found 0 wounds, just my pride. Lol

    Here is a real one, Craig.

    Ft. Alcatraz was a military prison, but was also used to defend San Francisco Bay as early as the Civil War. These tokens are probably turn of the Century and were used in the Post Exchange for servicemen and their families, not jailbirds like our beloved @OAKSTAR
