    Shellslingers



    INTRODUCTION

    Are you interested in socializing with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe gamers your age but not been able to "weed out" all the adolescent players? Are you unable to join traditional, time-consuming clans because, being responsible adult, you juggle your free time with going to college, taking care of children, or being employed in a full time job? In short, are you interested in an online experience akin to "shooting the bull" with a group of drinking buddies? If so, then Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Shellslingers is the right place for you!



    MEMBERSHIP

    Our Friend Code Master Lists are growing by the day.

    The Shellslingers clan has explored various titles on different consoles throughout the years, but we are utterly pumped to return our focus back to the Mario Kart franchise!

    Here is our confirmed MK8D Roster prior to launch (last updated: 4/25/2017):

    If you would like to join the club, you need only to fulfill two things:
    That's it! We don't ask for resumes, time trials, probation periods, VR stats, or any other sort of silliness. You just want fun, right? So do we! If you would like to learn more about membership with the Shellslingers, feel free to visit our "How To Join" page at our website.



    GUIDELINES

    We like to ascribe the Shellslinger experience akin to sharing drinks with some buds after work or partying with them on the weekends. Nothing stops the music faster than a few knuckleheads, so we do wield a few guidelines we expect people to follow during their stay:



    CLAN FEATURES

    The Shellslingers experience is as simple and non intrusive as joining up with other adults your own age and playing some Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at your convenience. For those of you who like to take part in activities, events, and communications beyond that simple formula, we offer several popular, optional features as well:


    Thank you for taking the time to view our clan's topic! I wish you the best in your Mario Kart 8 Deluxe endeavors! :happy:

    Hey, this is pretty neat. Do you guys have a Discord channel? I can provide you guys a space on my server, which is geared towards adults/older gamers who are looking for players during evening hours.

    *Edit, I missed the link in the OP... Tho it doesn't seem to be working?

    Hello, Google. Thanks for catching the link mistake. It is now corrected. Also, thank you for the offer. We do currently have a Discord Channel in addition to several other ventures to aid in our group's in/out game communications. Glad to hear more and more folks long in the tooth are still gaming. That is what we are all about among GS!

    That would be great! We would love to have you. Speaking of tomorrow, I was just about announce....



    Welcome to our FIRST Frosty Pints Event for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!!!

    Roughly nine years ago the Gunslingers tradition called Frosty Pints---grabbing some brews on Friday evening and playing some raucous rounds of games---started with Mario Kart Wii, and we are happy (Happy Hour Nintendo, that is; inside reference) to announce that the tradition continues into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. If you have the Nintendo Switch and are picking up MK8D on launch day, you are invited to join us as we blaze through some double item wielding races and duke it out in the newly expansive battle modes.

    Here is what you need to know:
    • Frosty Pints will begin around 4pm Pacific Time (6pm Central / 7pm Eastern)
    • Communications will occur in our MK8 Discord Channel.
    • GS*Silus will start live streaming our activity around 6pm Pacific (8pm Central / 9pm Eastern) - LINK
    • We will be raiding both worldwide races and battle mode during this time.
    • BYOB

    Keep in mind that Frosty Pints is a weekly event, and expect to see Tournament rooms set up starting the following week.

    If you are reading this and have not yet become a Shellslinger, change that by becoming a member: http://www.gunslingergaming.com/phpbb/ucp.php?mode=register&sid=049184aa0b55a85b7f50ec4e66b484f5

    Welcome to another new generation of the shellslingers!

    P.S.: Don't keep Balki waiting. He already has the game. ;)

    Our launch day shenanigans were a lot of fun (even if Amazon delayed some our members' ability to join in on the fun)! Thank you, fellow Shellslingers, for the hilarious races and battles yesterday. It was a heart warming treat to see old school GSers like MikeyFromSantee and Korchie (both of whom have been members longer than we have had a registered domain!) racing along side of brand new members like Brot!

    Also, a big thanks to GS*Silus for doing such a great job live streaming a portion of our Frosty Pints activity from last night. Here is a direct link to his Twitch video:
    https://www.twitch.tv/videos/138763637

    You will hear me talk more about our clan's 10 Year Anniversary in the coming weeks, but GS*Hir3ling has kicked our celebration off with a Shellslingers raffle that all our members are welcome to enter.Take a look:



    That's right! He is raffling off a 10 Year Anniversary of Gunslinger Gaming T-Shirt. His design is epic, and we are proud to share our appreciation of so many gaming folks joining our casual ranks for an entire decade. Look for more raffles by me and other Shellslinger members being announced this summer!

    Hi McMurphy!

    I haven't been in here in ages. In fact, I didn't realize I already had an account here:).

    I've been a Shellslinger since MKWii and it's amazing to still have GS around to have a great crew to game with. There's amazing people I've raced and gamed with for years and always great new faces as well. There's no kiddie drama...just races and good times!

    I always enjoy meeting new people and there's always room for more in Frosty Pints!

    Our third weekly Shellslingers tournament is all about taking advantage of the new color choices when making a Mii, so everyone is encouraged to come with a version of your most often used Mii altered punk style as we bomb our way through some bikes-only mirror mode craziness! Take Balki's present avatar as an example:

    Our fourth weekly Shellslingers tournament is all about paying homage to grunge music in memory of the late rock legend, Chris Cornell. Show up to the 150cc Frantic races with your Mii masqueraded as a musician from the '90s grunge moment in Seattle. Here are some ideas: http://www.miicharacters.com/index.php?t=grunge
