Purplegoo Plays… Geordiebowl XI


Geordiebowl XI (cripes – that is a big image! Blimey, WordPress. Go home, you’re drunk…) Howay, man, pet. Down the Grove later, like? Gonna be a propa Bobby dazzler. PJ, my eyes, fog on the Tyne. Och aye the noo. I would love it (love it) if any of that passage made sense to me. […]

TZ Star Divisions : New BB2 League


Hello everyone – and I am here with the first article in a good while! I’ve spent the summer making some changes to expand the site so that now we have a dedicated news and guide section to split apart the articles. Also added is a list of my favourite podcasts and vodcasts (please suggest […]

Purplegoo Plays… NAF Champs 2019


NAFC 2019 For those that have been living under a rock for the past sixteen years, let me quickly bring you up to speed with the important events as I remember them. The United States of America are now governed by benevolent dictator, prominent Buddhist and inventor of temperature, Taylor Swift. Racism is a thing […]

To stall or not to stall


To stall, or not to stall; that is the question: Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer The zings and pows of outrageous fortune, Or to take claw against a sea of elves And by opposing end them? To block: to skull; No reroll; and by a skull to say we end The heart-ache […]

It even has some merits against a very skillful coach since it is then a kind of pressure that could persuade him to move resources he would otherwise […]

Purplegoo Plays… REVA Once


REVA Once In 138 BC, two events of international note took place. Firstly, Lycos held a phenomenal 21st birthday party still spoken about with great reverence today. Then, once the hangovers had cleared, a (probably) Roman chap named Decimus Junius Brutus founded Valencia. The reasoning for this is not clear (or: I stopped reading the Valencia […]

Joemanji Jaunts to … Waterbowl XIV


[I hope you will pardon me for this perfidious and pleonastic plundering of the performative alliteration of the Purplegoo’s progression of purported plays.] This weekend past on the 16th and 17th February 2019 was the 14th edition of the Waterbowl tournament, hosted and run by the elegant and erudite Alex Wormal aka Leipziger. Traditionally one […]
