Some cards from Crackin' Wax

Christopher, from Crackin Wax, wants you to take his cards.  I did.  For a small donation, which goes to charity, he'll let you take 20 cards from various boxes he's busted.  You claim the cards you want and then send him your shipping material and he'll get the cards right out to you.

I've been involved with a few BoBuBingos in the past.  They're fun.  Christopher makes them fun.

So, let's see some of what I claimed.

I haven't opened any Ginter this year.  When I saw that an Abe Vigoda card was available, I set the hook deep and reeled it in.

This summer I read Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone's The Friar and the Cipher: Roger Bacon and the Unsolved Mystery of the Most Unusual Manuscript in the World.  It concerned the Voynich Manuscript.  If you like reading about history and books, the Goldstones don't disappoint.  Here's a link to Yale University's Beinecke Rare Books & Manuscript Library webpage about the Voynich Manuscript.

Just because you need another mini.

I think that those cards are worth a total of 9 points in Gint-A-Cuffs V.  I think.  I don't know.  I just want to put that nightmare behind me so I can move on to the nightmare that is Gint-A-Cuffs VI next summer.


  1. Glad those cards FINALLY got to you! You certainly waited long enough :)

    1. So my readers understand, Christopher sent the cards out right away. The first envelope I sent didn't arrive in Crackin Wax-land. I had to send another. That was the cause of the delay.
