February's Fandom : Leverage  
Each month will also have an broad theme that ties into a fandom. You do not need to know the fandom, you don't even need to like the fandom, it'll be loosely related to the games & lottery challenges for the month :D

I know not everyone will always be happy about the theme, but i'll be sticking to reasonably popular fandoms to try and keep as many people as happy as i can. If you'd like to suggest a fandom, feel free!

The theme for February will be Leverage
