Happy Birthday To Us, Plus… a Sonnet About Trees?

It’s 4/20, and you know what that means — time to light up a… candle because we’re turning two years old! Yup, we’ve officially entered our terrible twos, so expect us to start running around your homes, talking back, and throwing the biggest temper tantrums you’ve ever seen.

But seriously, we’ve had such a great year!

In addition to launching our site with exclusive designs and cool dice, we also launched the record-breaking Heroes of Barcadia Kickstarter, became the official Gen Con store, partnered with the makers of CATAN for some awesome merch, and more. Going over all our accomplishments really got us in a happy mood, and we wanted to do something positive with that energy. So, we looked at our calendar and noticed that our anniversary is very close to both Earth Day and Arbor Day... and just like that, an idea was born.

From April 20 to 29, 2022 (end of the day), we’re going to have a tree planted via One Tree Planted for every new follower we get on social.

And to keep us honest, we’ve screenshotted our current numbers below. We’re fans of accountability, so after April 29, we’ll work out how many trees we’re going to plant, pick a location, and give you a nice follow-up when everything is done.

Here are our current numbers:

  • Twitter: 1,061
  • YouTube: 871
  • Facebook: 1,499
  • Instagram: 1,895
  • TikTok: 23 (we just started it...)

And now, to celebrate our love of trees (and our exciting social project), please grab a seat for some poetry. Presenting a Sonnet from Rollacrit:

The Sonnet With a Poop Joke In Line Two, But We Had Good Intentions and We’re Really Proud of It Anyway, So Please Read It Because the Message Is From the Heart

Growing followers is a lot like trees,
It takes hard work and fertilizer too.
Really, Rollacrit? A poop joke? Like geeze.
This sonnet is starting to smell like poo.

But seriously, we love all of you.
You make the good times (and bad times) just great!
We love making things for our fav’rite crew.
So we hatched a cool plan and set a date.

The plan was simple — a way we can share,
Something special for the world that would grow.
(Grow like we have, with good vibes and good care.)
Good stuff out in the world for all to sew.

Now here it is — to the reveal we seize;
We’re counting followers and planting trees!

Update 4/30: 

19 happy little trees for our 19 new followers! Thanks for contributing to planting 19 new happy little trees with One Tree Planted !
