NEW TUESDAY NIGHT GAME THREAD FEATURE: Tuesday Night Music ClubWe're going to try something new in tonight's thread. We're always looking for new ways to help the group show off their total nerd arsenal, and tonight we'll try to feature some music nerds. Sort of.

The plan right now is that every Tuesday night game thread will have a featured "Tuesday Night Music Club" theme. It will then be your goal, if you choose, to find the best use of that theme for our entertainment. It could be by posting the perfect lyric at the perfect point in support of the conversation or action going on in the game. It could be that you find a crazy gif that goes with the theme and is a perfect response to a Geki rant. Or maybe you link us to a mind-blowing YouTube that causes us to rethink everything we've ever thought about anything. How you use the theme is totally up to you.

And I know, like Ray Kinsella you've played all of our games and never asked what's in it for you, but now you want to know what's in it for you? Well, in an attempt to encourage the usage of comment recommending, we'd like you the reader to vote for those comments that really knock your socks off. At the end of the month, the commenter with the most rec'd comment from a Music Themed game thread gets to pick our BBRef ad tagline for the following month. It's a prize that keeps on giving the whole month long.

So we'll give it a try tonight and see how it goes. It could be fun or it could be a flop. And if it fails, we'll likely go to Plan B: Topless Webcam Night. Just have fun with it and remember to rec your neighbor before he wrecks himself.

Tonight's Theme:

The Beatles

We're starting easy to get your feet wet. Tonight's theme also includes all solo projects by the members of The Beatles and their offspring. So, feel free to break out the Wings comments, or John Lennon and Plastic Ono Band, or Julian Lennon, or The Travelling Wilburys. You get the idea. Now let's head down that long and winding road to victory!
