As much as I’ve loved having Grimwald in the strip over the past couple months, it’s time for him to move on. But Grimwald will return someday, mark my words! jefbot made that promise to him, after all.
Ooooh he’s going to be a fierce opponent one day!
heh. true that, flame_fingers – and since Grimwald probably has a lot of time to himself (apologies to Sir Cottonbottom) in that cave, i’ll bet he’ll be a MtG Master (as well as a Tetris master!) by the time jefbot sees him again.
and check you out – you just achieved the Shades of Firsting 3X! wear them well: these interface directly with MtG Online:
😎 😎 😎
ah Magic, the gift that keeps on giving
true that, theBean. i still have my Magic cards from like, twenty years ago. …wow, has it really been that long?
Somehow, I think Grimwald would have trouble making use of jefbot’s parting gifts… especially the GBA! I mean, he has such big hands…
yeah, i figure he’d have to retrofit the GBA with some sort of device to play with it, Insectoid. knowing Grimwald, though, it shouldn’t be a problem. 🙂
Awesome as usual good sir.
thanks for the “awesome” comment, Onlyones!
And then Growlers found the Note Jefbot left for grimwald and while playing Magic with each other called HQ to let them know they found his hideout…
ooh, yeah – Grimwald better get back and seal off all those hatches, Maryz!
I swear, this story needs to be turned into some sort of television show or something.
Let’s hope that Grimwald finds some new buddies to play Magic with. It must be awfully lonely in that cave.
ooh, yes – from your comment to the Universe’s ears, Blunz! i’d love to see JEFbot jump to animation. maybe in the future. 🙂
and, agreed: let’s hope Grimwald finds a buddy. maybe he needs to “evolve” Sir Cottonbottom?
Wow got busy so missed the shades again. I do know how Jefbot feels leaving Grimwald. I love the fact that he gives him a hug and leaves his own treasure for him.
tell me about it, Kris – since october, i think time has been flying by at (at least) 4X speed. blegh. and, yeah – bot couldn’t leave without leaving Grimwald some gifts of his own. 🙂
ha! yeah, i think that first panel could be considered “dawwwww”-worthy, dj. 😀
Now those are the kind of gifts I would leave a huge, intimidating, yet intelligent beast. Well played.
On an unrelated note bot, you’ve been popping up on my friends list on my 3DS a lot lately, playing the new Zelda. I’ve been playing that too. How are you liking it so far?
glad you approve, Striker! let’s hope Grimwald takes losing well, if it comes to that. “let the wookie win” comes to mind.
and while i haven’t been able to play the new Zelda as much as i’d like, i do LOVE what i’ve played so far! one of my favorite Zeldas in a loooong time. i especially love how fast they throw you into the action/story. what do you think of it?
I’ll say this, it’s managed to make me put Pokemon X off to the side for a while. Link to the Past is my all-time favorite Zelda game, and it’s cool to be traipsing around that world again. I’ve played quite a bit, both advancing the story and just looking for secrets. I could probably write a small essay with all that I like about it. All in all, it’s an awesome game.
playing A Link Between Worlds has totally made me want to revisit A Link to the Past, Striker! i wish they would offer that on the 3DS actually. amazing how well those top-down zeldas work. i’ve been playing a little Wind Waker HD and – while i still love the game – the mechanics just work so much better in a top-down environment. anyway, agreed: ALBW is an awesome game.
Aww, bye giant cave bunny thing. We’ll miss you.
Who is Grimwald going to play Magic with in the meantime? Perhaps there is a nearby giant cave chipmunk nearby he could teach it to.
i’ll miss Grimwald too, Shanna! i already want to write some side stories detailing his life in the Hollywood Hills.
and, yeah – maybe Grim’ll have to write a program or make a robot to play Magic with him? or perhaps he’ll just create combos and strategies with the cards he has and wait for bot to return. i suppose he could play for Sir Cottonbottom. i remember having to invent games to play by myself when i was a kid. not always fun. 😉
Now there’s a thoughtful gift! 😀
I’m sure Grimwald can find an online partner . . . Or create his own.
let’s hope he has some batteries lying around there in his cave for that Gameboy, Sarah W! and i wonder if he’s online… hmmm. as for creating his own partner… double hmmm. 😀
I’m sorry, but I wouldn’t have been able to leave the Gameboy Advanced SP there. I’m to much of a nerd to let it go.
no doubt bot has another GBA SP at his apartment, GardeBlaze! that system’s too good to not have a backup. 🙂
Awws… Bot crying in the second panel is so sad… Lets hope they meet once more for their rematch! (my moneys on the giant rabbit)
you may be right, DAS – Grimwald’s probably going to be studying those cards pretty closely until he and bot meet again. although it does seems bot may have won their recent matches…
Oooo, nothing says “thanks” like board games and Game boy.
true that, p.j. day!
and, hey – i’m digging your christmas-y avatar!
Rematch, such untold stories 🙁 How did we miss them all…
maybe someday those stories will be told, HITD.
I’m guessing Bot is the one wanting the rematch? Well let’s hope that Bot gets the chance.
possibly, Fijiman, though we don’t know the exact results of their matches. i’m sure it’ll be cleared up if they ever have that rematch, though. 🙂
True, because I doubt many people would be in a position to deny a giant rabbit a rematch.
d’aww…I love Mu’s expressions on the first two panels…for a character with no eyebrows, he emotes incredibly well.
…also, the obligatory hilarious mental image of Grimmy hunched over that teeny-tiny Game Boy (by the way, where exactly did ‘bot leave those farewell presents? First guess is the cave…which got blow’d up, so I hope Grimmy took them to an auxiliary control room before leading them to the Tunnels of Epic Posing).
heh. funny you should notice that, JOE, as i’m always figuring out ways for Mu to emote with his big ol’ “optical faceplate” instead of eyebrows. 🙂
and, yes – the mental image of Grimmy manipulating those tiny controls with his big ol’ paws makes me smile. heheh. as for where bot left the gifts – they’re in the cave, right in front of Sir Cottonbottom’s cage, since bot knew that would be an area Grimwald would be checking out fairly soon.
Oh. Duh. Now that you point that out, it’s blindingly obvious…would you believe yesterday was just surprisingly long for me?
sometimes long days are good, JOE! (although some can be very bad.) i feel like my days have been way too short, lately.
