    This game had to be straightened out way back when it's first mascot disappeared from near the Cyclone in Coney Island. We have also been running a mascot dirt game in the NY Metro area for a few years, and have come to the following conclusions:

    1. If you make the mascot more important then the figuring out of the tags and the riding to the tags with your motorcycle, then you have lost sight of the wonderfulness of a mascot TOR. The mascot is just a tool to show that you were in the right place, and also de-emphasizes the need for smart phone and internet connections at the site, since you can easily wait till you get home to post. You can't get "Bruced" if you have the mascot!

    2. Signing the mascot makes it again more important then the object of the game. Lose the signatures. Make the mascot easily replaceable so the game can move on smoothly.

    3. If the mascot gets stolen, misplaced, lost down a river, etc., then let the last person getting the tag just replace the mascot in 24 hours. Simple.

    4. Stop with the adding of junk to the tag bag. Simple mascot. Simple to replace. Back to figuring out where the tag is and riding to it with a motorcycle.

    In conclusion, the mascot should not be important at all.

    Game on.

    Even with the Egg out of the picture, there still was no grab photo. Chemo or not, if the guy is not part of ADV and doesn't know the rules of the game, and so far hasn't even let anyone know he has grabbed the tag. It seems to me that the game should ignore this phantom player and someone who is an inmate should make a new grab. Otherwise the game will stall and we can all enjoy another cluster-fuck.

    I'll weigh in. I think we should have an egg. A good egg. I found a replacement egg, and rode it near 28 hours to drop off and return to the 'casa. And I put my name on the egg. And others did, too. We named the egg "Cosmo". That being said, Cosmo wasn't "Precious," but Cosmo was Cosmo.

    In my very humble opinion, I like the North American mascot. I suppose in light of events I don't favor folks not necessarily appreciative of tag history to grab and well, not tag. :cry But perhaps there are compelling reasons for the recent non-tag which will become apparent as time comes to pass. I hope all are ok. :thumb

    That being said, I vote mascot. And I vote egg. Glad to help put another egg in play. . .. :clap

    I'll say this one more time:The tag, until he posts, is still the Moonshine Store in Moonshine Illinois.

    Per authorization from the almighty's of ADV riding (nobody) I'm posting this official ruling to clear thing up. Note this Rule from the first post of this thread:

    "#4 Tag mascot (i.e. blockhead, chicken, etc.) is required to clame the tag. Please post your "bruced" pictures even if the tag mascot has already been taken. Tag claims must be posted within 12 hours of the 1st "bruced" photo. In the even no official tag claim is made within 12 hours, the person with the 1st "bruced" photo gets the tag and the honor of choosing the next Tag mascot."





    For those that can't work out this ADVlegalese I'll cypher. It appears someone may have picked up the "mascot" and not posted a grab picture. So that leaves us at above rule #4. So now if someone else were to post up a tag location picture "Bruced picture" the mascot grabber would have 12 hours to post up a "tag claim" post per stated above rules.

    If the alleged present mascot holded doesn't do that then the first Bruced tag claim gets the tag and the honor of choosing the next tag mascot.

    Did I type too fast for anyone?

    Game is still on and fully in play. mac and the unknown "H20rider have done nothing against the rules of this thread. So quit your fricking baby whining and go grab the tag. It's a fricking riding game and a fricking plastic/rubberr/glass/marble egg. The only person allowed to cry like a baby is the fool/fools that spent $12.95 on the glass egg/eggs that are lost or grabbed.

    You're very welcome, And much to mac's dislike I may just grab this tag and move it to the middle of BFN West Texas shortly.....

    Oh I like Tor's rule much better:

    As to the rules........................they just cause strife.

    An offhand observation. Remember when there was just 1 mascot? Not near as many problems or whining. Play with what you have and move on. If you don't have the patience to wait, play a local game. Have nice week and be safe
