    Imagine what possibilities that could open for Bagball Games! Bagball Hockey with organized teams... could be a nice event on a regular basis. How many ice patches did that take to do?:D

    That is awesome! Great use of the crystal items, too. I usually find them to be obnoxiously blinding, but you used them well. Is the entire floor covered in icy patches or are they just scattered around in top of white floor tiles?

    Now you just need the devs to create a rare musical track for your Dawn's Music Box to play Simon & Garfunkel's "Slip Slidin' Away" for the skaters. :D

    that can been done hehe would have to spread the ice out more tho so there isnt a big empty spot in the middle. the only problem i see with having hockey played on it now is you do get teleported to the upper level sometimes. hehe
     
  19. That's just the penalty box!! :D

    OMG... now that's kinda scarey as I had the same thoughts! Penalty Box! Of course the way the penalty would be a random moment, it would actually be pretty realistic! Especially if you are a Buffalo Sabres fan like myself! Anyone ever notice that 90% or so of the refs in NHL are from Canada? Not ripping on Canadians (especially since I used to be one in my youth) but everytime there is a Sabre's game you will see the Sabres get called for penalties that were either unsubstantiated or even worse, they get called on penalties for the same garbage the opposing team gets away with consistantly. Sometimes I wonder about that... refs should be a mix in my opinion, 50/50 US/Canadian. ESPECIALLY when there is a Canadian team against a US Team.

    Sorry about my NHL rant lol but that very aspect of the NHL would be the same in UO Hockey lol. Suddenly *poof* you find yourself on the next floor AKA penalty box, and are like WTF I didn't crosscheck him with that Boomstick!!!!

    i love it!!! what a great idea!!! love the idea of hockey games with the penalty box being one floor up - i love when i fall one floor up and land on my face - makes me laugh out loud every time - that is SO cool!!!

    omg i just noticed your entry way where you rent skates (or leave your shoes when you put on your skates), with the puddle of water... you are so clever!

    I agree with the other posters. This IS just AWESOME! It looks just like a rink here in Seattle.
