Origins

Ah... the origin of the BigRedHammer. I remember when... *wavy lines appear* It was July of 2004. Turbulent times were afoot in America. Our presidential candidates were at each others' throats. And a young (one year younger anyway) Scott got it into his mind to start his own blog. Now he already had two internet/life nicknames. But he didn't feel that either were appropriate for his blog persona. So a brief brainstorm ensued. Scott looked around the room for ideas. His eyes rested upon the game, "Killing Doctor Lucky". There is a card in that game, "The Big Red Hammer" which is Scott's favorite card in the game. And then it hit him like a... well, a big red hammer. That should be his name! So, contrary to popular belief, the BigRedHammer was not named for covert communist missions or politics, but rather for a card in an immensely fun game. I also find it odd that the BigRedHammer lives in the WhiteHouse. Very odd.

Very odd indeed... Thank you for the much needed explanation and the cool link, the game looks wonderful.

I have always loved clue but Kill Doctor Lucky sounds like bliss - I cannot wait!
