Online Gambling Tips For Gamer Girls

We focus a great deal on World of Warcraft here, but the truth is girls who enjoy online gaming have many options beyond WoW. The Internet gaming community is growing rapidly every day, and one result of this is that there are seemingly unlimited forums in which gamer girls can enjoy a bit of interactive competition. And one of the most enjoyable types of online gaming, these days, can be found in the Internet casino industry.


Let’s get one thing clear right off the bat: casino gaming online isn’t legal everywhere (in fact, in the U.S. it’s illegal almost everywhere). However, some online casinos do offer you “play money” options, so that you can still enjoy simulated gaming, and odds are that casinos are gradually legalized in more and more areas.


Now on to the fun stuff. Getting into online casino gaming can be a blast, but it also requires a strategic approach. So here are five tips for girls who want to try their hands at online gambling!


Set A Limit


This is the #1 tip for any gambler, but is particularly important for those gambling online, where you can spend more money with the click of a button. The Heavy news and entertainment site recommends setting a limit for your gambling (as in, how much you’re willing to spend, or perhaps a number of losses at which you’ll stop playing) and sticking to it no matter what.


Know Your Games


This may sound obvious, but in many gaming environments the best way to learn is just to dive in. For example, it’s hard to properly prepare yourself for a foray into WoW by reading or studying in advance. It’s best for first timers to simply jump in and learn along the way. Gambling games are precisely the opposite. Rules, tips and strategies are of the utmost importance, and it’s important to know your games in advance.


Find Beginner Environments


There are dozens of prominent online poker rooms and casino environments, but some cater more effectively to beginner players than others. The Bet Fair poker site goes as far as to offer beginner player packages and detailed instructions on getting started at the site, all of which can be helpful for a girl who’s new to online gambling. Jumping into a complex or expert environment can be a bit overwhelming when you’re starting off, so keep an eye out for tools and perks like these when you’re finding sites to play at.


Ignore The Movies & Television


For many who are just starting out in online gaming, the prevailing image might be that of Matt Damon bent over a dramatic card game in the film Rounders, or of a high stakes summer poker game on ESPN. Try to erase these memories and expectations. Films and high stakes tournaments are designed for drama, and keeping them in mind can make you play a bit recklessly!


Avoid Multitasking

This has emerged as a major issue for online gamblers. Basically, it’s simple: online casino games require your full attention, and while it’s fine to throw on some music in the background, or chat with others in the game, multitasking and diverting attention can be disastrous for your gaming! Translation: don’t be pulling out your smartphone between poker hands every couple of minutes, or you will miss out on important bets and game trends!


Again, you’ll learn more as you play, and a lot depends on which specific games you get into. You may prefer blackjack to poker, or you may simply stick to online slot machines or roulette. But these tips for getting started with online gambling can help in any game, and should set you

Girls gone WoW 82: Moonk, the Tauren Monk

Announcement from GGW

Rebuttal to feedback regarding Therazane and our boobies segment

Hey Guys, Just before we start show 76, I just want to talk about something that’s happened this week.

We have received some feedback from a listener regarding our segment “Best and Worst Boobies in WoW”, and in particular show 72.
During this show, Therazane was chosen as having the worst boobs, with our guest asking why the earth mother figure had to be portrayed with saggy boobies, couldn’t she be portrayed with more pert boobies like Alexstraza for example. This started a light hearted discussion about whether Therazane just needed a better tailor or corsetiere.

The feedback we received about this says that we have upset people by heaping hate and shame upon the Earthmother and her boobies, and accuses us of body shaming and supporting and promoting a modern male perspective of what beautiful is as regards the female form.

After receiving this, we really felt it was worth spending time discussing this offline with each other and then sharing with you our feelings on this.

Such a topic is naturally something that is close to all of us, being women and Roblin, being a chap who appreciates the female form. But speaking for the ladies of @ggwshow, we have personal perspectives on boobies, being owners of them, and also being women of different shapes, sizes and opinions. Between us, we’ve got all sorts of boobies and bodies, big, small, pert, bouncy and saggy. And they are all perfect in their own way. Not everyone likes every type but that’s fine, as long as no-one is rude or unkind.

Therazane and her daughter, Princess Theradas are obviously modeled off historical depictions of the Mother Goddess, for example the Venus of Willendorf. Such pieces often depict larger female forms with saggy boobies and are beautiful. Overall, we think that Blizzard actually have done a good job in their tribute to these pieces, with one error. The real problem is how the faces have been modelled and in fact we think it’s the faces that cause people to dislike the models. Both WoW models have distorted and rough faces, which act as a harsh contrast to the rest of their forms so as to render the models quite unsympathetic and a little disturbing. Theradras actually has quite pert boobies if you go back and loot at the model.

We have never sort to imply or heap any shame on saggy boobies, or anything or anyone that does not have the form of characters like Alexstraza. Beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder and people should be free to live their lives free of harassment, upset, bullying or intimidation because of their physical form. For one member of the show this is a particularly sensitive topic as they are recovering from an eating disorder that has been sustained in part over the years due to bullying regarding their physicality. The anonymity of online gaming can be a huge release from these day to day pressures as no-one can see you, so can’t comment on what you look like: in that regard it can be a safe space.

Our segment where we ask our guests about boobies in game is meant to be a light hearted way to end our interview with them. It’s all about personal preference and it is perfectly acceptable for people to not like these models in game. It may mean they don’t like them IRL but that is their choice. It might also mean they just prefer pertness in game. Either way, it is perfectly legitimate for them to chose what they like or don’t like. If our question ever turned into a discussion that suggested that RL saggy boobs are unnatural, or disgusting, or wrong, then we would jump on that but it’s never happened. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but respect that others opinions may vary is equally as important.

If anyone has any further feedback then please let us know at Thanks for writing to us.

Our new guild!




The exact origins of this warband are the subject of much debate among the members of the Horde, simply because no real time scale was ever given of theirs deeds. However the earliest they appear in any kind of written record is just after the opening of the Dark Portal.


In the beginning they were merely a pack of orcs still under the influence of the taint. However there were some that were possessed a little deeper by another force. Hatred. History tells us of the grusome and bloody wars that were fought, but mixed in with the accepted historical records lies the history of the Ashes of Man…


During the First War there existed a powerful orc captain know as Thorgax Redgore, an orc with a loathing so intense it is perhaps comparable to that of Garrosh Hellscream. Thorgax would butched humans without end and refused mercy to ANY. Those orcs who followed him thought Thorgax a hero and were always prepared to lay down their lives for him. It was after a sucessful raid on a human settlement that Thorgax’s genocidal hatred took on a new level.


With the scent of death surrounding him and the euphoria of victory intoxicating him Thorgax let out a frightening battle shout. He took hold of a nearby human corpse and flung it upon the blazing fire before him. As the smell of searing flesh filled his nostrils the captain breathed deeps the desecration of his enemies and addressed his bretheren orcs:

“These pathetic worms are a disgrace! Even their lifeless corpses mock us. Join me my brothers, eradicate the human vermin!!”


Howling in frenzied agreement the band of orcs joined with their captain. Throwing the corpses upon the crackling fire and cursing the human race to extinction. From the base of the fire Thorgax scooped a handful of ash and coated his face with it, once again howling to his orc brothers.

“My brothers cover yourselves with their ashes. Ensure all those that see us know, that we will crush them beneath us!! And wipe their very memory from this planet!!!”


Thus began the Ashes of Man. They were the most brutal and vicious of the orcs. Massacring and burning all humans in their path, then charging to the next battle smeared in the ashes of their defiled enemies.


After the taint was cleansed stories of Ashes Of Man quietened down but were never lost. As time had passed they had become somewhat secretive and more selective of who was admitted. Years passed and as the Horde became more diverse so did the Ashes of Man. The idea appealed to some of the Trolls and their barbaric beliefs about life. The Forsaken agreed whole undeadheatedly with the ideal of ending the humans existence. Even the gentle Tauren have those among them whose dislike for humans is intense enough to warrant them to seek out membership. Any Blood Elves that join usually do so to be around when the magic essance is seared from the humans flesh and released back into the grand flow of magic. No-one is truely certain why Goblins, who make no profit from these endeavours, join yet they can be counted among their ranks regardless.


Within the present day Horde Ashes of Man has once again started to rise up into the public eye. There are even rumours that Warchief Hellscream himself is a member, but this obviously cannot be proved. Although the burning of humans doesn’t occur frequently anymore, primarily because it can’t, there is still a tradition upheld by the guild members. Once a year the members gather atop the cliffs of Durotar under dead of night. Once there they slay a harpie each and together they symbollically burn these human-looking creatures to honour the heritage they have inherited. On this night (I rolled a D3 die here to represent each of your birthdays and it came up as EJ. So the night would be 9 days after EJ’s birthday) the guild members sit around the charring fires telling tales of their victories over the Alliance, in particular any battles fought with the human race. All the while coating their faces with the remaining ashes. Such is the tradition of Ashes of Man…




The Ashmask- The leader and most prominent member.


Ashling- The rank given to those whom are new to the ranks (main toons)


White Ash- The rank given to those who attain entry through friends (Alt toons)


Ashen Beast- The rank given to those who have proven themselves to the guild.


Ashen-Fear- Attained through futher deeds and loyalty to the guild.


Ashen-Terror- One of the most senior ranks that garters much respect from the other members. Their loyalty is unquestioned and their feats countless.


Ashen Monstrosity- Second only to the Ashmask. Those whom attain this rank have proven themselves as the best of the best.


Upon joining Ashes of Man you are appointed as an Ashling and presented with a Solid Stone (all but White Ash). This is no ordinary stone, it is a piece of the original alter that first human burning fire was built upon. The stone is still charred with the memory of that fateful night. It is a symbol of your membership, even more so than the offical tabard. All ranks (except White Ash) must carry their stone and to lose, sell or otherwise dispose of it is the GREATEST insult one can give to the guild. No harm or ill will should befall this stone for it should be carried with ever swelling pride as your proof that you are part of the guild.



Funny WoW Story No. 4

I believe it was the first or second week since Ulduar was released, and we were clearing it on 10man. We had just killed XT and were heading up to head to the Iron Council. This being our first time past XT, we were a little fuzzy on the details…

Raid leader: “Hey guys, I think council’s up the stairs!”
*we go tromping up the stairs*

We all died and it became a guild joke that obviously, council is up the stairs.

Funny WoW story No. 2

Back in TBC I was in a guild on Alonsus EU, horde side called Malice. Sadly due to losing a few members and the GM quitting the game it was decided the guild would disband. But the night before all the available members got together and decided to have a naked dance party on the roof of the Orgrimmar bank. People from other guilds joined in and then it was decided to take it to Shat’trath to see if we could get the allies to join in.

At the time the top guild was an ally guild with a Scarab Lord as a main tank. The guild had something of a rep of being very elitist and arrogant, especially this tank guy. But lo and behold they joined in with our dance party, though all still in their shiny epics. So we formed a plan. A few of us mounted up on our flying mounts and used emotes to get Mr Scarab Lord to follow us up as high as we could go. Then we dismissed our mounts. He did that too, expecting a mass suicide. Except we all had slow fall devices (the engineered parachutes, slow fall, levitate) and he went splat in all his shiny gear whilst we floated down to earth and danced round his corpse. To be honest maybe it was funnier when you were there… He took it very well though, even the repair bill.

Anyway, the guild disbanded the next day but we had a good last evening together. And the Scarab Lord? A few weeks later he took all the valuable stuff from the guild bank toon he controlled and transferred server. Oh, the drama.
