The tig party is historically based on a little know bts joke from the lord of the ring commentary (if you bought the 4-dics special addition for each movie, though I believe this comment is on the first movies disc) where billy boyd and dominic monaghan made up a game to entertain themselves in between filming. See Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan had convince Sean Austin (who was descent at the game) and Elijah Wood (who was bad at the game). That Tig was a real game, like tag... for if you tig a tog then you have to tag the next person, or (if to slow or you forgot your part) spin around like a chicken three time ( or some such ridiculous thing) Seriously, lots of fun at Elijah Woods behalf.
No, I am not lying, that is the joke (watch the LOTR four-disc special extended edition commentary from the actors not the director...movie #1-fellowship, I'm pretty sure). So as an early 2000's message board we took that joke and ran with it like the best of the early internets did... That is the Third Annual Tig Party! Where we gather to dare people to tig after a tog and then tag, tig, tig tog, before the next person must do the same and add more. And I am glad to be back!!

Hello again guys nearly 2 years since my last "How ya doing"
got married August 2018, moved into a house etc doing the full adult life now. Still watch LotR religiously and looking forward to the TV Show. Hopefully it creates a spark and gets this forum talking again
"In the year of our Lord 1314, patriots of Scotland, starving and outnumbered, charged the fields at Bannockburn. They fought like warrior poets. They fought like Scotsmen. And won their freedom."
Congrats on the wedding Disco!! That's great news! Good to hear from you. I too got married and had two kids, life became busy.
As far as a New party... Lotr and Anarchy seem to be old news.... surely there is something more. To quote Dr. Seuss "Was there nothing to look at... no people to greet? Did nothing excite you or make your heart beat?"
