Hi guys! Thank you Thank you Thank you for playing along with Crazy Eights today. We had high hopes of being able to keep this up for the duration but it’s just not going to be possible. However, by really narrowing the focus of the update and scraping the bottom of the barrel so to speak, we were able to eek out a little extra to try something new and see if we could accommodate more people. Please be sure to sign up for our enewsletter, follow us on Facebook, or join our Ravelry group for details on the next update!
Our game of Crazy Eights has been so much fun! It has also been a great way for us to hear what floats your boat. Oh the things we have learned! We had over 800 responses and many of them carried multiple color votes. As we have been tabulating the entries, let me just say that we were always happy to come upon any list of multiple colors that was in alphabetical order!
Now, a word about the colors that made the top eight. We did use our dyer’s prerogative to be sure that our eight colors all played well together. So what ended up happening is we have a Scummy/Muted Team and a Brights Team. It just seemed logical to have two teams made up of four players each. You know all games need a referee, so I took the two top neutral colors and made them the umpires!
Bases – now this was a REAL tough one. Because we are trying something new and want to include as many as possible for as long as possible I have chosen the bases as follows:
Traveler Aran (due to recent changes in how we handle TA, I am particularly happy with how Tuscadero, Bohemian, Jazz Hands, Wintry Mix, Morticia, Chocolate Crinkle and Ogre will play on TA!)
Please note: This is a pre-order update and will ship according to our pre-order policies, volume and capacity.
Thank you so much for participating and casting your votes in the CRAZY EIGHTS thread and for joining us for today’s update!
