Way too many choices!

If we can just cut it down to two entries, it makes flipping a coin much easier. ;)

Wish I could make the choice easier--it was a great month for TFF members to get out fossil hunting and we get to drool over their finds (and make hard decisions). I suggest you find some Dungeons & Dragons players and borrow their 12-sided dice for a bit.

 

Cheers.
