JuryRig of the Month

Scenario: It is late at night and you are enjoying a snack when you hear a noise outside. When you look out the window, there is a group of men walking towards the outside of your home. You recognize these to be a local gang that is notorious for house robbery. They will be inside in a matter of minutes and this gives you enough time to jury-rig something together. You don’t want to kill them, but teach them a lesson so they will no longer live a life of crime. The items at your disposal are anything located in a kitchen and living room. Your bedroom and gun locker are just too far away and you will lose sight of them.

Goal: To solve the scenario by combining two items in the environment. Please feel free to think outside the box and be outlandish.

JuryRig: Mankind has discovered that he/she possesses the ability to combine any two items together. The main item gains one attribute from attached item. For example an RPG chainsaw, It is a fully functional chainsaw but with the ability to be fired like a rocket. This is a favored tool of many zombie survivalists.

1st place $10
