2012 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 2, Day 1

Post by DadofTwins » Mon Aug 06, 2012 2:06 pm

Posting from the road.

Specifically, from a Burger King just outside Bristol, Virginia.

I'll check in again later tonight when we get home.

ETA: oops. Looks like it posted twice.

Also ETA: Because last week was not technically part of the Summer Hiatus, and because a lot of folks wait until first-run shows end before they come looking for this game, I'm leaving the Round 1 Weekly Winner contest open until Tuesday at noon EDT. If this is your first day and you haven't played Week 1 yet, go ahead. Tomorrow afternoon we'll post any RQ's needed for Week 1, then announce a winner on Wednesday.

Here's today's game.
