The Damsels Game Episode 137, All We Want for Christmas

All I Want For Christmas

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Today we are talking about games we have on our Wish List for Christmas and beyond. It’s a little odd that all our lists show NO GAMES in common. Thanks so much for listening!

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by Oh Shitz Drops. Are you afraid of heights? Well, these babies are for you.  Available in most vending machines around Navezgane. These sweet little candies have a purpose. Fall Damage? Not today, Tall Building. I popped my drops! I’ll be taking 100% of nothing for the next five minutes. 

Pop your drops and be prepared for those Oh Shitz Moments.

        • I can never find supply drops. 
        • When I die, I drop EVERYTHING. When you have nothing, that is significant. 
        • How many Episodes is a Season? 
    • What do you think of a Vanilla ARK Ark Series for Summer 2021?
