100 win-streak by GJ

In 2022, Gambler Justice (GJ) did a very impressive 11-win streak in the dev version of TGGW v2.6 (which since then also has been repeated by MTF who is on an ongoing 13-win streak so far).

Two anniversaries in one

Today is exactly five years since the first public release of The Ground Gives Way!I thought I celebrate with a brief post about the history of TGGW.
