September 12, 2020 – Frisco, TX – From a game room somewhere on Pandora: 

“Yo, yo, yo, sup, muckasuckas! Tina here, coming to you today with the most AWESOMEST news EVER. If you heard more amazing news, your head would EXPLODE and your brains would spill all over the floor and—” 

At the table, a weary Nerdvana Games Marketing rep sighed.“Tina…” 

“OK, fine. I’ll be real witchu. Really real! Like, Bunkers & Badasses real. ‘Whaaat, Bunkers & Badasses is gonna be real? Can I play?’ Yes two times, girl, for REAL! The ladies and gal-ettes over at Nerdvana Games made B&B into a tabletop game that you can buy and own and cherish and play until your eyeballs fall out and you lose all your dice!” 

Mordecai groaned. “Hijole, seriously? Why?” 

“Mordy, please—we need to get through this. Tina, where were you?”replied the Marketing suit. 

“Girl, stop interrupting me! VAULT HUNTERS, ARE YOU READY FOR THE GREATEST FUN YOU’VE EVER HAD?! This is your first-class ticket to Boom Town! Now sit down and strap in because once this choo-choo’s chuggin’, we’re not stopping for NOBODY. ROLL FOR INITIATIVE!” 

“Tina, slow down, can you at least tell the people about the game first? They need to know what it is.” 


“Oo! I can talk about the game!”Claptrap chimed loudly. “I know all the rules AND I’m the best player ever!” 

“Claptrap, we got this. Why don’t you all just start playing, and I’ll tell our fans about the game?” 

“Fine, but I’m Bunker Master!” Tina agreed.
