I was late for a very important date!! Some of the Bingo crew meet in the Castle Keep prior to dealing with the peasants. I'm not saying everyone needs some fortifying refreshments in order to deal with the pitchforks, but it helps. My coke doesn't fortify, but it gives me enough energy to get through the night without falling asleep ... mostly.
Sometimes the machines do their thing and sometimes they revolt, just like the peasants. That in turn, causes the peasants to revolt anyway. When the machine throws up the little numbered ball, it is placed in its corresponding number home, which triggers the two big boards to light up like a Christmas tree. That is so those who are playing eight cards can see what the numbers were, even though they are behind in the ink stamping of said numbers.
On this night the machine revolted and decided not to post several of the numbers. It started as a low rumble, and immediately turned into pitchforks and torches! Everything came to a screeching halt while one of the Knights tried to get it fixed. Luckily we have some handy Knights.
