The Klik of the Month Klub meets right here on this very website on the third Saturday of every month at 4pm Pacific Time (taking daylight savings into consideration) for a two hour Klik & Play Showdown. Everyone who participates gets two hours to create something from scratch in Klik & Play. Abusing the stock objects is encouraged. If you really loathe Klik & Play you can use whatever game development platform you want. Two hours is a pretty tight time limit, though, so choose wisely!

Klik & Play is absolutely free to download, and learning it takes minutes, so everyone can get in on the action.

Want to talk to your fellow Klikwreckers? Join us on IRC -- server irc.freenode.net, channel #glorioustrainwrecks. We've also got a Mumble voice chat server -- just connect to glorioustrainwrecks.com using Mumble and you can talk to us like real human beings! Join the mayhem!

After you've made your game, you should upload it here!

For more information, check out the KotM N00B FAQ.

Sign up below if you want to get reminded by email the day before the klikkening begins!

Is the regular Klik of the Month Klub at an absurdly inconvenient time? Then try the Ladies' Auxiliary Klik of the Month Ball! (Ladies' Auxiliary Klik of the Month Ball is open to all genders and time zones.) The Ball takes place at 4PM GMT -- check that link to see what time that falls on for you.

The rules are the same: You get two hours to make a game in Klik & Play. If Klik & Play is a hindrance rather than a boon to your creativity, feel free to dump it for the game creation tool of your choice. If you're new to Klik & Play, check out our Learning KNP FAQ.

It's no fun making games by yourself in a vacuum, so make sure to stop by IRC. Our server is irc.freenode.net, and our channel is #glorioustrainwrecks.

After you've made your game, you should upload it here!

For more information, check out the N00B FAQ.

Today is a Someday.

What is a Someday, you must inquire? It is when the one who must do certain things on a Thursday instead does not, and proceeds to not do for several months thereafter. The not doing is what which is the cancer. And the Someday is that which is the cure.

Someday is Sunday. Someday is Wednesday. Someday is Fries Day. Some days are rainy days. Someday is all days.

On the waning of the second half of Someday, July 27th, 7PM to 9PM Eastern, we shall experience the two-hours phenomenon where trains are wrecked. It is known as the Themed Trainwreck Somedays.

However, one must be wary of the trains they are about to wreck, for one mustn't wreck the train the way that any train ought to be wrecked. Instead, one must wreck the train in a very peculiar manner. A manner that follows a theme, if you will. The one theme this manner follows is entitled Single-Button Games.

Buttons are frightening. Buttons are terrifying. Buttons once bit my sister. She became hospitalized for five months.

It is of critical importance that one mustn't include more than a single button in their wrecked trains. The single button may be pressed. The single button may be depressed. The single button may be held in the downard orientation for that matter of time longer than a short period of time. The single button may be not pressed within a period of time longer than a short period of time. However, you shall have no other buttons before the single button.

The tools for wrecking trains shall be found in the place where things are kept. The intercommunication between your other persons who are wrecking trains shall be located on the #glorioustrainwrecks which lies within the irc.freenode.net, and the verbal air through which Mumbles and grumbles are heard. Should one find themselves in a state that involves not understanding the wrecking of trains using the Playing in Addition to the Kliking, the one should press and depress a single button over this arranging of letters.

I cannot give any further utterances in regards to aid that follows in avoiding pressing a greater amount of buttons than that of the single button, so I shall deliver to you the best of regards in your wrecking of trains.

P.S. The finalized trains that have been wrecked should be transported through a single button press and a single button depress through this arranging of letters.

This is a week late, but whatever! Copied and pasted from the last Knytt of the Month:
Make a Knytt Stories level in 2 hours! Alternatively, make something else in 2 hours. It's up to you, really.

Don't know what Knytt Stories is? No problem! Download it here, and give the tutorial and bundled level a spin to get a feel for how it plays. The editor comes with the game. A good way to learn how to use it is to poke around existing levels to see how they work. This guide is also a good way to learn the basics. And don't forget to check out the Knytt Stories Recommended Reading List for some inspiring Knyttery!

Join us on IRC for more fun and good times. You can use the in-browser chat here, or you can point your favorite IRC client to #glorioustrainwrecks on irc.freenode.net.

Upload your level here when it's done!
