Writer_smaller100 comics!

What better way to celebrate a 100th birthday than taking your clothes off. Also I can now cross ‘take my clothes off on the internet’ off my bucket list. (it’s a pretty weird list, and I won’t lie, there are more than one Shia LaBeouf-related items on there)

I don’t honestly think either of us ever thought we would get to 100. It seems crazy now that we have, but two years ago it was laughably so. But we did, and we don’t intend on stopping, and if you’re reading this, it’s because of you that we are still going. So thank you. We would love to have done something special, something more for number 100, but unfortunately things are a little crazy here at Tiny Wooden Towers.  Aileen is wrapping up college just in time for a wedding abroad, and when we come back we have a house move (so many games to pack up!). But we still plan on doing more with the site, the least of which is a design overhaul. Just a little later on in the year now.

So for now we’re just gonna run a contest, to make it feel like we are doing something special. If you leave a comment on this week’s comic, you will be entered into a draw to win a signed A3 print of your favourite Tiny Wooden Pieces comic. Any comment will do, all will be entered. And you don’t have to list your favourite comic either, that can wait until a winner is announced. But we won’t hold it against you if you do list your favourite comic. We would love to hear what some of people’s favourites have been. The competition will run until midnight next Thursday GMT, so we can announce a winner next week.

So for now, thank you all so much, and I look forward to hearing from you in the comments.

  • Cool game (I love it & have played all the expansions save the last one, can hardly wait for it), cool comics, and of course, congrats on your comics! 🙂 There are many (more or less) boardgame(-related) webcomics out there, but yours has the most soul for me by far. 🙂

    • That’s really nice of you to say, thank you so much for that. It’s really encouraging to hear such positive feedback.

  • Emily

    I don’t know this game, but one quick BGG search later and I think it sounds interesting…
    If I won you comp I’d have to re-read your entire archive to pick one to be “favourite”.
    Not that that’s a bad thing, I don’t mind the occasional archive read-through.

  • Nuno Santos

    Your webcommic rules!

  • Krzysztof Kowalczyk

    Yay! Congrats on reaching 100! 🙂 And in good form too – this week’s comic is easily one of my favorites, alongside the one about Eclipse (A heavy price) and K2 (River deep, mountain hard). Great stuff! 🙂

    • Thank you so much, and thanks for the mention of some of your favourite comics. I was only thinking about Eclipse the other day, it’s been too long since we played it. Such an epic game.

  • Neil Lavery

    Congratulations!

  • Ben Thorp

    Congrats on reaching the 100. Looking forward to the next 100 😉 Would love to hear your thoughts on T.I.M.E. Stories – it *looks* really intriguing, although I’ve held off getting it because I don’t think it would particularly fit my game group. Also, the Dice Tower loved it, but SU&SD didn’t, which always makes me curious.

    (In other news – Thunderbirds finally arrived o/ and I also bought Firefly Fluxx)

    • Thank you Ben! And thank you so much for all the comments and conversation. It makes such a difference to us, it really does. Glad your Thunderbirds arrived! We just got all the expansions as well, so much packed in there, we don’t even know where to begin with. It’s quite exciting. Let me know what you think of Firefly Fluxx as well, definitely on my radar now…
      As for T.I.M.E. Stories, we haven’t actually played that, but it is very high on our want list. I do think we would end up liking it, despite some mixed reviews. I just love the concept so much.

  • wr00t

    Congrats. Looking forward to another hundred 🙂 Can’t tell which issue is my favorite right now, but this one is definitely one of the funniest 😀

    • Thank you! As I mentioned already, we like to be as ridiculous as possible, and this seems to have struck a chord. Either that or people just like playing board games naked?

  • theaarondean

    Congrats on getting to 100! Looking forward to the next 100!

    • Thank you! Keep reading and commenting and we’ll keep writing and drawing our silly board game stories and experiences.

  • Meitreya Mayako

    Been thinking of picking up T.I.M.E. Stories. At a convention this weekend we unboxed several new games and I did think of your plastic bag episode as there were not nearly enough.

    Eclipse is our favorite.

    • An ongoing problem of the hobby. In a nutshell, it’s just too many tiny wooden pieces.
      That’s another vote for Eclipse. I’m so happy to hear that. At the time, I really worried that the joke wouldn’t land, or it wasn’t that good. Hooray or being wrong!

  • Tim Horsburgh

    Did I need to get naked to post this … Congrats guys! 100!

  • Sarah Reed

    Congrats on reaching 100 comics! That’s so awesome! I hope the wedding and move go well! And here’s to another 100 comics!

  • Curtis J. Reubens

    Congratulations on hitting 100! This comic is ridiculous and also really great.

    • Thank you so much! Ridiculous is actually one of our main goals, we will try and hit it more often.

  • Peter O’Keeffe

    100 comics already? It feels like issue one was only a few months ago. Time is moving too fast. Stop doing that time, stop!

    • It sure doesn’t feel like two years. On the other hand, it’ seems like a lot more than two years since we started. Time is weird.

  • David

    One of the best things about Friday…and it already has the advantage that it’s Friday! Many congratulations on 100 comics!

    Loved this comic, just so unexpected and very funny. At least in the running for one your best!

    Also intrigued by TIME stories, sort of escape room-esque?

    • Thank you so much for the kind words. Always so nice to hear. And TIME Stories is much crazier than that. It’s a time travelling … mystery solving … thing … Worth looking up some video reviews to get a handle on exactly what it is.

  • Yay for 100! Can’t wait to see 1,000! 😀

  • Dan Roth

    Two years, eh? It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long. Keep it up!

  • Michael Cox

    Naked gaming can be lots of fun, but you should probably clear it with everyone in the room first. And maybe put down some towels. A little prep goes a long way, is all I’m sayin’.

  • Rob

    Nice run, keep it up! My (sad, by comparison) esoteric, little web comic also just hit 100 comics, by coincidence, so yay for all of us! 😛

    • Congratulations on your own comic milestone! What’s your comic?

      • Rob

        https://www.facebook.com/BeeingApis
        It’s a little out there. Just like my sense of humor. 😉

        • A comic about bees and beekeeping? And I thought WE had a niche webcomic… Seriously though, well done on 100 comics. That’s impressive. And I love the comic as well, even if I’m sure more than a few of the strips are going over my head… Well done!

          • Rob

            😀 Thanks! Yes, very niche, and often the comics only make sense if you’re a beekeeper – particularly due to the puns and wordplay I use. Your comics are much more accessible, and have much better production value. 🙂 Keep up the great work!

          • The production values are due to having a dedicated artist! Much easier to keep on top of everything when you can half the workload. I recommend it!

  • Bob

    Love the comic. Stumbled across it near the start and so glad I did. Keep it up.

  • Sven_the_Berzerker

    Congrats on the milestone! Now to re-read the archive to decide on a favorite…

  • Gordon Smoak

    I literally look forward to TWP every week, here’s to another 200!

  • Congratulations on the milestone! There have been so many of your strips that I have really liked (still chuckling about the whole “boardgaming: safer than hurling!” thing, and “naked Time Stories!” has already gone onto the faves list) but I think my favourite was the one about baggies and drug dealers (#010), which is about something close to my heart. Baggies, that is!

    All the best for the next 100 strips.

    • Thanks Rob! And thanks for letting us know which comics have stuck with you. It’s nice for us to know what works, and what people like. Very useful, too. Just like baggies! See what I did there? Look at me, cracking jokes like a funny man.

  • Dexter Ó Thuithear

    Congratulations! It’s fantastic to see this doing so well. As Shia so eloquently says: Make your dreams come true!

    Hopefully we’ll see you at one of the upcoming spate of X-wing spring kit tournament!

    • Shia quote makes for the winning comment! I won’t be playing much for the next month, unfortunately, but after that I fully intend to make it up as often as I can, even just for regular Sunday games.

  • Dianna

    Congratulations! I’ve been really enjoying these a lot – looking forward to lots more!

    • Thank you! We’re looking forward to making more. And more, and more, and more…

  • Mattias Renmark

    Awesome! Congratulations on reaching 100 comics!

    • Thank you! Oh man, I’m typing so many replies my sheer number of comments means I’m bound to win the print myself *excited*
      (jokes, lolz)

  • Jonathan

    Congrats! My favorite is the one where you visit Boston and play games with a stranger you met on the Internet.

    Wait… that hasn’t happened… yet…

    • d’oops … I did say we were rubbish with email … I’ll get on that now, sweartogod.

    • Rose the Hedgehog

      We want in too! 🙂 (Well, you might not want us in, as AP is not a joke in our house.)

      I posted “late” on comic 98, but I can try to help with some food recs if you let us know whereabouts you’re staying and what kind of food you like.

      • If you were late I might have missed it, I’ll go back and check, thanks! We’re still figuring out our schedule, (Jonathan can attest to long delays with no replies) but we will let everyone know if we can be around for games. That would kind of be great.

  • Rose the Hedgehog

    Oh… and congratulations! I’m glad to hear that you will be staying with this comic for the forseeable future. Like others, I would need to go back to find a favorite.

    • Thank you so much! It’s easy to get disheartened when the numbers fluctuate week on week, but nice comments are a good anchor for us.

  • Jeff

    Congrats on 100. Best board game Web comic I read.

    Me and my wife are playing strip Agricola – it’s three months in and she’s lost 2 socks and a hat…

    • lolz! I also like that she was clever enough to go into the game wearing a hat. Good foresight! Also, thank you! Thank you so much for the kind words.

  • Glen Slagle

    Too bad you’ll have to start back on comic #1 on the next run. At least you’ll know what’s coming.

    • Guess we can just trace over the old ones and re-letter them with some new jokes…

  • Jason

    Congratulations on reaching 100. I am always excited to see what game or game-adjacent topic you’ll cover each time!

  • Jan Tan

    I swear, I love anything that has Star Wars in it 🙂

    • Ditto. Just a sucker for it. Right now I’m not sure if I’m more excited about the Force Awakens Blu Ray release or the Rogue One trailer.

  • Julius Besser

    Keep up the great work

  • zuk

    Love the comic, keep up the great work!

  • Chris ‘Munch’ Murch

    Congrats on 100. Love the strip. So many relatable moments.

    • That’s what we aim for. Well, that and as much silliness as we can fit into six panels. And nudity.

  • Angel Manuel García

    Congrats on your 100 strip!
    The strip part is very preminent in this one, I might add 😉

  • Daniel Newman

    I consistently enjoy your comic, don’t know if I have a favorite. I remember cracking up at the one where you trip over a pile of unplayed games.

    • Funny thing is, that’s Aileen’s favourite comic as well. She does love to remind me about the time she drew me ‘hilariously’ falling over those games…

      • Daniel Newman

        do you happen to have the address handy for that one? i’m feeling lazy and entitled and don’t feel like digging to find it 🙂

  • Shane Moll

    100! Yay! I’ve got you guys on my RSS as well as Facebook. There’s no way for you to sneak a post past me.

    Congratulations!

  • Buster Hills-Hughes

    People play games with clothes on?? How novel.

    Congratulations on 100

  • Autumn Pojo

    I need to get invited to this game night.

  • Brian Caball

    Shia a-la-Buff, amirite?

    • While it might not win the draw for the print, but that comment does win best worst pun/wordplay. And isn’t THAT the real prize?

  • Megan Heysham

    I really want to get around to TIME Stories one of these days

    • We’ve been talking about this, and figure it will be a perfect replacement after we have played our way through all of Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective. One of these days…

  • The Rocketeer

    Glad I ran across the funny. Thanks for the weekly, game related, bright spot!

  • Amanda Gentzel

    This is my favorite webcomic right now – can’t even begin to think of which strip I like best!

    Really need to try Time Stories sometime..

    • Thank you so much. And in case you were unsure, it’s not STRICTLY necessary to play naked. But I mean, what’s NOT more fun naked? (cooking)

  • Marissa M.

    Congratulations! I love reading these 🙂

  • JK

    Congratulations and a great comic today! 🙂

  • Leigh Cunningham

    Great achievement of reaching 100, keep doing what your doing! I’m off to figure out the rules to Naked Netrunner, hidden information is key.

  • Hieronymous Pseudonymous

    I’d have to read most of the strip for the first time to pick a favorite. (I found you through Clever Move Games’ Sunday comic roundups, by the way.)

  • Hieronymous Pseudonymous

    Hey, thanks for recommending Chew (the comic) in an interview.
    I really enjoyed it, but I don’t think I’d have looked twice at it if it wasn’t for you.

    • Oh wow, that was a while ago. Glad you enjoyed Chew. It’s an odd book, I didn’t read it from the start, because the pitch was quite odd. But it’s brilliant, and just gets weirder and weirder with every book.

  • Selwyn Ward

    Looking forward to the next 100! Picking a favourite from the first two years will be tough tho’.

    • Thank you! We’re looking forward to drawing and arting much much more board game silliness. And probably making it sillier. Because.

  • Christopher Patrignani

    Drinking Game of Thrones advice is the best one that comes to mind. 1) Animaniacs reference. 2) IT PREACHES THE TRUTH!

    • That was a hard-learned lesson. We still talk about that hilarious, but oh so painful night.

  • Jesse Diego Perez

    Woo Hoo! 100! I almost missed my opportunity due to Emerald City Comic Con. I usually read your comics first thing Friday morning but this weekend was a little busy due to all the gaming my sons and I had at the Con. You guys are awesome and I love your strip…though not your stripping.

    • I just want to say that going to a con and playing games with your kids is a GREAT reason to nearly-miss the comic. We both thoroughly approve of your awesome parenting. And thanks for the comment, here and in the past.
      (also thank you for the great bad joke. Nothing makes me happier than bad jokes and puns)

  • Chris McDermott

    Congrats on 100! Strangely this is the first time I’ve been on your site but I’ve read your comic for a while now. o_O Through Sarah Reed’s tweets! 🙂

    • Sarah is so supportive, RTs every week without fail. She’s been amazing.
      And welcome to the site, Chris! Delighted to have you, and even happier that you decided to say hello in the comments!

  • Darwin

    Congrats on 100 comics. I just binged all your comics and they were awesome 🙂 Choosing a favourite comic is quite hard :S

  • Rene

    The punchline made me literally lol
