Isle of Misfit Toys?

Isle of Misfit Toys?

Sometimes we hang out with friends but feel like we just “don’t belong”.  It isn’t anything wrong with us as we are all different – that is what makes the world so unique.  Groups and cliqs are a way of sorting ourselves by likes and dislikes.  I have such a variety of things I enjoy, I feel like a misfit most of the times.  As things unfolded this past year, it seems I was not the only one feeling like this.  It became a greeting in Discord – “welcome to the isle of misfit toys” and well, it just seemed right.

...Vio's Isle of Misfit Toys is born...

When I left Rounder Casino in July 2021, I found myself searching for a “new purpose” to stream.  I didn’t want to be locked down to a specific room for playing poker.  My friends play in a variety of rooms and I wanted to join them.  AND, I didn’t want to just play poker…I wanted to have fun in a variety of ways.

Unplanned Time off Twitch

When I had my last stream as a Rounder Chip Bandit, I had no idea I would not be back online for over a month!  Just 2 days after that stream, we were hit with some pocket storms and my pc took a little lick.  I lost my hard drive and speakers – sigh.  I decided to take the time to think about just what I really wanted out of streaming.

Why do I enjoy streaming?  Well, let’s face it…poker is fun, but I have a long way to go before I am a “winning player”.  Playing on stream all the time was loosing its luster as I didn’t have time to take the game seriously and study to improve my play.  I stand by the philosophy of “never gamble with that you cannot afford to lose”.  So, it obviously wasn’t for the money…but for the friends I have made and the community that has been built.  I fell in love with streaming because I met so many wonderful people around the world and began forging friendships that I would not have made otherwise.

What do I enjoy doing?  I enjoy being with friends and making them laugh and share positivity!  Sharing that energy that makes people feel good and happy inside.  I love playing community poker games…light-hearted fun on the felts.  I enjoy driving games and will be bringing the drive sim set up to life in the coming weeks on stream.  When not online, I play match 3 games and watch a lot of super hero flicks.

Return to Twitch

Americas Cardroom  Still wanting a place for community games, I was able to get an OD game listed with ACR.  I stream this every Sunday evening with game time at 6pm CST. with xxMissWaitWhatxx . We have a community leaderboard with trophy and merch prizes at the end of the year!!!

Wreckfest  This is by far one of my favorite silly driving games and I look forward to bringing it to the stream.  Watch me get serious in NASCAR laps or flat out silly in ping pong – moon gravity mode bumper cars!

Community Games  In between streams or warming up – the community can swing through for some mindless Marbles or kick up the brain with Words on Stream and Jackbox Parties!  I am always looking to add more viewer interactivity on Twitch.

Follow me on Twitter to know when I go live…visit my Twitch page and hit that follow so you won’t miss a stream!  Hope to see you soon!!!
