Ladies and gentlemen, step right up and marvel at this wondrous, bizarre game of crustacean-based skill! Judge the distance, set the power, take aim and FIRE! The more lobsters you can get into Oscar's mouth, the higher your score and the further you'll progress through the levels. Every level wins rewards for your personal space!

FYI ... this is a prototype for something I want to do going forward in future (and going back in time as well for content such as The Midway) whenever we release a significant new mini-game, so please let me know via PM here on the forums if you have any suggestions for layout or other thoughts on content etc.

This is more of an informative official thread. Events and Fun Stuff is more for actual events and the fun stuff you all create. I'm hoping we'll have a much better place to put content like this in the future, but for now these threads will reside here General Discussion. Unless someone (via PM please, not here in this thread) convinces me otherwise.

I actually meant for future threads such as this, and the content of said threads. Does the FAQ cover enough? More or less game background blurb? More or less visual assets?
