        • efhosci

        • Argent Stonecutter

          In the future, every tiddlywink has alt text on it.

          • Keldor

            So the tiddlywinks ,will end up like fortune cookies?

          • Mewfifteen

            (In reply to Keldor)
            *le gasp* WHOA, yer right!
            But where do we get a cursor in the waking world?
            …do you mean we have to break them tiddlywinks open?

      • The face

      • Lupus

        Now THAT is a reference

      • Profesor Rod

        In the future, all phone comic readers will get alt texts… ON MONOCYCLES!!!

  3. ZincChloride

  4. IceKitsune

    TiddlyWinks! The most manly of games!

    • efhosci

      I can actually pretty easily imagine Kevin playing it…

  5. SilverZeo

    Shouldn’t that one dog say ‘NEH” all the time… and where are the motorcycles?

  6. Ryufire

    Nice Johnny Bravo hair do! :P

    • SilverZeo

      Only less gel and uncombed…

  7. Cristian100n

    Jeesh Spot cards ARE so last year!

  8. RootsofOrigin

    Alt-text: In the future, they decide Tiddlywinks is boring. So instead, they playTtiddlywinks… on TRICYCLES.

    • 1boredcanadian

      You beat me to the alt text, NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

    • Camtheman16

      Actually, I beat both of you! No hard feelings! ;D

  9. xhunterko

    Oh the many wonderful concoctions fo game vocabularies!

  10. 1boredcanadian

    Alt text for those of us in cellphone land: “In the future, they decide Tiddlywinks is boring. So instead, they play tiddlywinks . . . on TRICYCLES.”
    I dunno, I want tricycles and something involving fire. Now that would be interesting.

    • nyathetexascat

      why not on unicycle?

      • 1boredcanadian

        Because….um…You have a very good point. Unicycles it is!

        • The face

          Dont forget the Multiple love issues, and the players being voted out every 5 days.

          • 1boredcanadian

            Also a good point. Now I just have to find somewhere that will show it. Hmm…I’ve got it! I will say that it was created by the Mayans and it will end up on History. They’ll show anything…But so will almost any other broadcasting service.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Unicycles and paws don’t mix.

  11. leaffly

    I never really understanded that game…

  12. cheetahwolf

    how is it fair to let a super dog play in a tournament.
    that all i got see you need week :l

    • Frank

      Ah, but this is a Japanese tournament! Superpowers and extraterrestrials are allowed!

      • Frank

        aaand avatar fail

        • jinxed

          Fortunately, it seems your new avatar feels your pain .

  13. AuveAkita

    And even further into the future, they’ll say that Tiddlywinks on Tricycles is boring, so they’ll switch to Tiddlywinks….on UNICYCLES

  14. REB_MAN

    I don’t know what “Tiddlywinks” is but it sounds like a fun game… now… how on earth do you play it?!?!

  15. DaveedW

    I laughed with the alt text. Nice Reference by the way!

  16. Somebody Somewhere

    And yet, in the far, far future, tiddlywinks will, of course, be replaced by the juggling of grizzly bears.

  17. maskedman189


  18. Argent Stonecutter

    “Spot: The Hunger Games.”

    Spot: hey, wait, these tiddlywinks. They’re Necco wafers!

  19. WingedwolfGirl


    Sorry Peanut, that’s how I read it.

  20. Tara

    LOL that one doggy in the last panel has Yugioh hair, I get it. c:

  21. Daemon Blitzkrieg

    ….why am I suddenly think of Bakugan as “Circle Colors”? >.>

  22. Legendario13

    Is bad if i dont understand what the last dog is talking about?

    • Frank

      Short version? He still thinks he’s playing MonsterCards™

      • Legendario13

        Thank you frank!
        Always saving me

      • Indagare

        No, he’s using real tiddlywinks terminology.

        • legendario13

          Ok now…Ok now…I dont know what’s going on…
          theres only one solution..
          HELP ME GOOGLE!

          • Indagare

            Basically, the disk used to flip the other disks caused the disc to bounce out of the pot (where you want the disk to go). Though being squopped usually means your wink lands on top of an enemy wink and is thus a good thing here it seems that somehow his wink landed *under* an enemy wink.

  23. Nia

    I’m currently thinking, if this isn’t a nice little stab at Bakugan. If it is, major kudos, since I can’t get enough of that series getting the bashing and trashing that it deserves.

    • Frank

      Meh, I was thinking more YuGiOh but probably any series that mixes epic battling and tabletop gaming will do

      • Argent Stonecutter

        The only tabletop card game that doesn’t deserve scorn is Steve Jackson’s “Illuminati”.

        • Daemon Blitzkrieg

          I am interested in your notion that Yugioh! deserves scorn. Please, enlighten me.

      • Nia

        Huh, do people even still care for Yu-Gi-oh! at this point? I mean, card game wise, sure some people still might be playing it. But at this point, I thought the series was long forgotten and burried.

        • Daemon Blitzkrieg

          Nope, nada, and yes.

          Nope – People still do care about it.
          Nada – Its not dead, forgotten, nor buried & not likely anytime soon.
          Yes – People play the heck out of YuGiOh! I still love to play it thineself. It makes mah brain work! D:

  24. Fell

    Card games with Tiddly Winks on Tricycles on Motorcycles on the roofs of corporate buildings.

  25. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    *giggles* even the tags are funny! xD

  26. Pix

    Screw the rules, I have green hair!

    • jinxed

      Dis reference!

  27. Tom Flapwell

    Wow, the green-haired dog sits like a non-anthro dog.

    • Legendario13

      Role playing?

  28. Ozimul


    For those that have no idea, you basically scatter a bunch of tiny plastic discs around a cup, and use another disk to try to fling them in.

  29. Draven

    You can tell they are good because their hair is big.

  30. Grip the Wolf

    In the third panel, the green haired dog looks slightly derpy.

    • Alucai Vivorvel

      That… might be the point, not sure.

  31. spencershot5


    • cheetahwolf

      i believe this to a one time thing

  32. Alucai Vivorvel

    Darn it, sorry Rick, I spent all my money at eBay and buying other little things like your other short story, Argo. I wish I could buy TTMU…
    Anybody willing to spare some change? I take Paypal…

    On-topic: what is this I don’t even
    Nooo of course a Spot (superdog) comic would show up during a bunch of one-offs! Just please don’t make it an arc, while they’re good every once in a while I much prefer regular ol’ Housepets! thank you. :)

  33. God Girl

    Woo! New comic on my last day of school and I got a new Jamie Grace CD in the mail today! My day is fully made!

  34. Faokryn

    That… is the single greatest alt-text… in the history of the world.

  35. Mewfifteen

    Tricyles? Pfft. In the next NEXT time, they tried it on… THE TABLE UNICYCLES.

  36. toboe

    @Ten Thousand Miles via Rick
    He’s a Captain and a slave? I’m confused

    • 1boredcanadian

      I want to feel smart for a moment so I’ll say what i think and leave it alone. I think it’s similar to a pilot on a plane or the captian of a ship. He’s the commander of that space or that object and whatever goes on there but is still technically a “slave” to the company that owns said ship or plane.

    • Dissension

      Yes. Read the story! I promise everything makes sense.

  37. Xander

    how does one find this Alt text that i always see commented about?

    • cheetahwolf

      put your pointer over the comic and wait a sec.

  38. legendario13

    OMG the comments didnt reach the 100!


    get your tricycle and RUN!

    • God Girl


      • legendario13

        What? what the mayans said?

        • God Girl

          The Mayan calendar ended after 2012 and people say that it means that the end of the world is here.

          • Legendario13

            I know is silly but…
            I lied!
            I knew it!
            April fools day!
            That goes for the one of Gary too.
            (if i didnt know it would be almost offensive)

          • Legendario13

            And…. In other bussines X3, I love your avatar, im lost in it.

  39. Air

    I swear this is an Ed Edd n’ Eddy reference.

  40. KidChimera00

    I wonder how many people actually remember Perfect Hair Forever.

  41. Crescent Fox

    Oh Rick. You make my insides smile.

    • Legendario13

      Or is yours……..

  42. Camtheman16

    Wow, this is the least amount of comments on a single comic, since HP got popular…

  43. King_Crimson

    screw magic he has green hair -cough-and money-cough-

  44. Jelli

    So, basically Pogs? They marked the crap out of those colored circles.
