I keep meaning to get together the tutorial on the pillars and exploding pillars. Need to put that on my to-do list so I don't keep forgetting (avoiding) it

Conduct While Gaming
While rolling a die, do not say, “Anything but a 1!” unless you wish the die to come up as 1. Any other such attempts to anger the “Dice Gods” will result in the existential equivalent of continuously flipping a coin and having it come up heads every time (for reference, see Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead). Your dice will be cursed to roll ones for everything other than morale checks, which will come up sixes.

ORK PLAYERS HAVE A LIMIT OF 1 SCREAMS OF WAAAAAAGH PER HOUR. violators will be forced to play tau.

Players with chimeras and las weapons shall pronounce chimera ki-mere-uh, not chim-ere-uh. Violators will be forced to play nothing but world eaters. Non-40k personnel must purchase and build a chimera.

To create a more "natural" feel to the board I propose this: (bearing in mind i have only read first page of posts )

Go to a very well ventilated area, grab suitable flamer unit (My preference is deodorant+lighter, but this is too dangerous for some people) and flame the foam in various places. foam melts very quickly, and releases a lot of fumes when it does (personal experience) so be careful when doing this, dont want any deaths on my conscience

I'm both selfish and rational. I'm scheming, secretive and manipulative; I use knowledge as a tool for personal gain, and in turn obtaining more knowledge. At best, I am mysterious and stealthy; at worst, I am distrustful and opportunistic.
