AAAAAA! A classic comic I don't have much to say about! MY ONE WEAKNESS.

OH! Oh oh oh! There *IS* something I can comment on! This whole story arc has a naming theme to it. This theme might be obvious, but hey, splash page I don't have much to say about.

In any case, the titles for each part are meant to tell the story of a board game being played. The titles form a simple story with LOTS of room for interpretation. It's more of an outline, really. At this point in the story / outline / whatever provided by the storyline titles, some players have opened up a box with a board game inside, read the rules, set up the pieces, played the game for a bit, and then someone knocked the board over.

I'm sure a metaphorical knocking of a board over in this situation isn't at all ominous.
