Thank you all for your patience this round of gameofcards. And a special thank you to those who stepped up to help while I was away!

It's been a really rough time for me since I lost my Mom. A lot of things have had to take a backseat in my life as I've attempted to work through my grief. I apologize that this community was one of those things.

I'm trying to work my way back into fandom albeit slowly. I have plans to close out the current round soon, as well as make plans for the next phase as soon as I'm up to it.

Thank you again everyone for your patience. gameofcards will continue for another round!

Normally I'd post extensions to the appropriate communities, but since I'm extending a group of them together, I'll just do it here. Please spread the word to your teams!
