Perils of the Bold updates irregularly. Hopefully once a week.

Comment on Episode #264.


Chinese checkers, as you would not expect, did not orginate in China. Some guy in Germany invented it in 1893 as Stern-Halma. An American renamed it Chinese Checkers to sound more exotic - because Stern-Halma isn't exotic, I guess. So, I don't think it's so bad that the gods have renamed soul checkers.

I have around 80 board games. I chose to have the gods playing Chinese checkers for the following reasons:

  • The board and pieces contrast very well with the godscape.
  • The board is very contained, all the pieces remain on it, so I don't have to do as much digital work.
  • The pieces remain firmly in place where they're supposed to be, so I won't mess up the arrange by bumping the board.

Panel #5 - That's actually the very tip of my finger on the checker.

Panel #8 - Originally, the black checker was going to say "Kind of like when you were alive, huh?" as the punchline, and the green checker was going to respond with "Yeah, I guess you're right." I didn't like that too much. So, I asked Tawni for help and she suggested the joke here in panel #8 and #9 instead! Thanks, Tawny!
