Wait, how did Megan's smack talk not work, as the explanation states? This is not accurate. 20:34, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Cueball changed the statement from an insult to a statement of fact, implying that in the year 2000, he was literally the only resident of a real town called Suckville, but that the population has grown since then. Leafy Greens (talk) 01:05, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

In panel 3 what is going on with Megan's legs? 15:12, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

I have no idea... Maybe she temporarily turned into a spider? --Pudder (talk) 15:42, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
I think she was just turning around. if you look closely you can see that in one position legs are in a position which would make sense while playing the game. Her other two legs are faced with a computer as if she was using it. Same with her arms. The reason there were three is because one arm stayed in the same position.

More likely, he forgot to erase her legs facing forwards. Beanie (talk) 11:00, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

If Randall respected disposition of cards, it can't be magic the gathering (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

in MTG, there is one deck with many cards in it (usually 60, in EDH it's 100, and can be arbitrarily large), with one other stack that can grow tall (the graveyard), with maybe exile becoming somewhat larger. However, this comic shows multiple large stacks per player, which means it can't be MTG.

Adding a late comment to the discussion - it seems nobody caught the fact that Cueball has obviously looked up Suckville in the census data because he knew in which table it could be found. This indicates to me that he has received this insult before and looked it up in the census data in order to prepare a comeback for the next time! He was ready for Megan this time!

Clearly Dominions or an inspired game. Megan is taking a card from a set of ten piles reminiscent of the ten piles of kingdom cards, and both players have what appears to be a deck and a discard pile.
