MMP#171 – With a Little Help From My Friends

Hey Folks. This time a few song lyrics.iIPNV9aqUYrGs

What would you do if I played out of turn
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your dice and I’ll roll a d10
And I’ll try not to crit too badly

I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I got a die with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

If you didn’t figure it out we’re talking about teamwork in games.
