Pet Spotlight: Crystal Pisano

Posted on August 20, 2018 by Jim

Not far from the lights of Las Vegas are a trio of dogs that help share the spotlight with Crystal on Board Game Blitz and Dice Tower Tonight. Sorry Crystal, Ambie, Tom, and Eric, we know who are the real stars of the show. Tom Vasel even featured them as their own dice buddy avatar, though they requested their mom be part of the background.

Lana, a 7 year old Bichon Frise wears her emotions on her face. You always know what she is thinking and feeling. She often takes both paws and "digs" at the air in front of her as a way to ask for belly rubs and she will not quit until you rub her belly. She is very spoiled and whines a lot until she gets her way.

Sterling, a 7 year old Maltese, is a grumpy old man trapped in a tiny dog body. He is incredibly loving toward Crystal, her husband, Lana, and his best friend Maeby. Usually, the Grumpy Gus comes out when it comes to other dogs, especially big ones. Most nights, he climbs into the bed and gently paws a shoulder until someone lifts the covers so he can crawl under. Noises, especially loud ones, will send him into a tizzy. He barks at any noise he hears. The worst are thunder and fireworks, which terrify him.

Maeby is a 5 year old Poodle mix with some Welsh Terrier and other unknown breeds.  Maeby is super hyper and incredibly loving. She gives kisses to anyone and everyone. If someone refuses to give her attention, she will start whining to make them think something is wrong. She is more adventurous than the other two and more independent as well. She loves to sleep on piles of clothes, whether they are on the floor or in a laundry basket.

Maeby is the true gamer out of the three. She always wants to be part of the action when friends come over to game, with a front row seat onto the table. Lana and Sterling are much more casual players, generally happy to hang out on the floor under the table or take a nap on a nearby couch.

Favorite Type of Games

Any game with lots of tiles and cardboard bits. No one will miss a dungeon tile or cardboard chit here and there. Its not like they need all of the pieces to play the game. Games with other pets are an added bonus.

Favorite Game

Legacy of Dragonholt, because it is the perfect game to play in bed while cuddling up to mom.

Favorite Game Component

Cardboard bits.
