    Sometimes I marvel at how much work the people at RT do, other times I marvel at the amount of work the people at RT don't do. 


    Then I realise that it's work either way and that y'all are some of the luckiest people on the planet. I live vicariously through RT life.

    Should add a rule where you can throw another ball without clearing the chair of a "sit" and it will score 5/6 points if it "sits" but zero points if it hits.

      Man, Andy and I made this game up because we were dealing with some grindy stuff as game devs. Every job has those moments. 98% of the time our office is dead quiet and people are just cranking away on art, code, schedules, etc... I bet your company has chairs and any ol' Nerf ball should do. Chairball is for everyone. You could be the next grassroots chapter chair for your local Chairball league. Short of that, I bet other folks at work are looking for goofy fun too.

      @Skilltacular I appreciate the thought and I would certainly love to give that a try, unfortunately the company I work for doesn't even let you use your cell phone at your desk if you aren't also on lunch lol. It's a very formal very uptight atmosphere consisting of mostly ex-military and angry old women. It's a good job but the rules are absolute and the consequences immediate and severe lol. 


      But I can still dream about how great it would be to work at RT and if you guys ever need a financial analyst I'd be happy to apply lol.
