I've been thinking for this round of disasters, what happens with board
games?  Someone gets upset, and kicks it resulting in pieces flying all
over the place.  Or, someone throws the dice too hard at the wrong spot,
and POOF, all the setup pieces result in... well, disaster.

I have been trying to set this up, but now I wonder what voters would think,
is it deviating too far away from the theme?  I am trying to avoid the same
old match the generic flood/nuke theme exactly like 90% of users will.

I think a non-obvious interpretation would be refreshing this round. Often
images, through no fault of their own, lose something because there are so
many similar entries.

Thinking along those lines I was reminded of a Mel Brooks quote, "Tragedy is
when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die."

Ok I will try and stick with my idea then.  Maybe I will make numerous
things going wrong all at the same time.  So far I have been working away
on the assets and eventually will plan on shifting them into place.

I am geting worried I will run out of steam again before the two months are
up.  Still trying to do a few hours work a day when I can squeeze it in.
Oddly enough, I am finding myself still learning a few things when I
thought I had it all figured out.

I had an idea for a somewhat broken bridge, and the material (paper) being
soaked up and breaking away, but think I will scrap that idea for something
else.
