The Most Massively Useful Thing…

Today is Towel Day, and for those who don’t know what this refers to, we’ll just wait here while you read the entirety of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Finished? Good.

We celebrate Douglas Adams (his work and worldview) today with the release of… well, the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything* - the Number 42**- and also a nice tartan towel back for your cards.

“… any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.” - Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

Oh! There is more to come from today of course. Fill Your Cup and Fill Your Coffers now - for from 12:00 UTC the Top Secret! theme gives us a perfect excuse for Going Underground. New cards coming to the gems and coins pack are the Iberian Worm LizardSiberian Weasel, and Brazilian Cottontail (which comes into its own with very low energy rules) - and the American Badger, which will no doubt be in demand for players running Life on Land.

Lastly - shhhh - Secret Societies return at midnight UTC, along with Nyau - the secret society of the Chewa of Central Africa.

*Hmm. That has a nice ring to it.

** Special prize of ‘feeling smug’ for anyone who knows why the ability is what it is.
