C-Minus Two Days and Eating! We Mean Counting!

Do you ever wonder what’s on our minds as a Chaos Thaoghaire live event approaches? So do we! In fact, it’s a question that frequently comes up in the many interviews we have done with ourselves and each other. We wanted to find out more, so we met with the Chaos Thaoghaire Minister of Weights, Measures, Statistics and Pies, and we’ve now got a definitive answer. Check it out!

If you weren’t at our launch or our test-run in September, you might want to have a look at the rules, and read more about our cheating policy in the games section. You can’t bribe us for the answers, but we can tell you that it is not possible to win at Chaos Thaoghaire by playing fairly, nor if you fail to use your Chaos Bucks. Remember, too, that you will be asked to gamble some of your points. This is where all your insecurities come to the fore, and probably you will be crying out of everywhere it is possible to cry from. You wanna play by the rules, you say? Fair enough. Enjoy loserdom.

Other, slightly more logistical things: if you’re down on our list on your own or as a plus-one, you don’t need to bring a team. In fact, we wouldn’t have room! But don’t worry, we put teams together when people arrive, and remember, this is Dublin – you probably already know everyone in the room anyway.

If you’ve booked as a team, we need to know numbers when you book although if someone cancels, then please let us know – we’ll be able to open up a spot on the waiting list. Oh, and make sure you’re as on time as you can possibly be. Once we close team registration, you might still be able to play (if there’s room on the other teams), but you won’t be able to play together. Can you imagine the horror!?

Please feel free to contact us if you’ve got any questions. You can use the contact form, post a comment below, or send us an email at chaosdublin at gmail dot com. Are you excited? We are frank(enstein)ly, we can’t wait to scar the pants off you. No, that’s not supposed to say ‘scare’. You scared yet?

    I’m just looking at the little tags box in the lower right-hand corner. How many times would I have to say ‘sausages’ to get the word sausages to show up? Sausages. Sausages. Sausages. Three isn’t a lot, yet it is significantly more than zero. Sawsigez. Saucissons. Salsiccie. Franks. I assume this is the type of post you encourage here at Chaos Theerie?

    Hm, I am torn here. Because you see, I don’t know exactly what you’re talking about, except that the word ‘sausages’ is in there? But also, I am tempted to see how many times we can get you to say/type ‘sausages’ before you decide to try something else.

    And yes, precisely the sort of post. Indeedy.

    It only appeared just now!! I promise you it wasn’t there before. ONE WOMAN CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Eh, yeah.. I can see now that my post-reply did not look like a post-reply but more an unrelated remark from a random nutter. Em it’s just that I got all hungry and ready for lunch thanks to your pie chart, but I’m more a fan of savoury food. Hence, hot dogs. 🙂 !

    Did you know that in Ireland they sell hot dogs in a f*cking JAR? Scary. Ronan, did you eat them? I can’t remember. Actually, I was so horrified by Amiee telling me of this culinary horrorshow that I missed everything that came after “they were in a jar”.

    Yes I’ve seen that. My mind won’t go into the room where I’m figuring out what the preserving liquid is. Brine? Pickling fluid? Meat.. juice? (kim’s mind runs out of room)
