Ante up

Post by Lynchpig » Thu Apr 09, 2015 7:14 am

Cards spun across the table as the sergeant dealt them. Five squad members from the 43rd Bovine Infantry battalion leant their weapons against the table, studying their cards, the sixth spot empty. “Ante up” came the sergeant’s cry. At this the players reached into the human corpses at their hooves, extracting various organs to throw into the middle of the table in a satisfying series of squelches. Another soldier wandered up, arrogantly chewing cud. “Got room for one more?” he quietly moomured out the side of his mouth. “Sure,” said the private to his left, “but all bets are offal.”

Loved it. It's the right blend of corny and interesting. I hope you have more in your bag of tricks.
