Though, I do think Dewey's expiration date is long overdue.
I wonder how the working relationship is now that Cox and Arquette are separated. If it is acidic, then maybe one of them won't survive... I've always found Dewey to be an annoying character and I don't understand why fans like him so much. I wouldn't be that disappointed if he bit the dust.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Dewey was actually supposed to die in the first one but preview screenings' strong reaction forced the crew to re-film scenes of him being carted away alive. If this is the case, they may want to avoid such a fiasco again. I hope none of them do, personally, although my favourite character (Tatum) died back in the first one so go figure.

I bluffed my way through my English exam. The essay question was so random- we were required to write an essay on the spot about a poem we'd never seen before and write how architechture is used as a metaphor for humanity's relationship with the divine. I barely understood the poem, which was dense and a mass of contradictions and ambiguities. I can't wait for the next essay. What'll it be about? Compare and contrast Jesus with Spider-Man?

I was watching The Shining on my computer when my brother walked in. He insisted that it wasn't a real movie because there was no way Jack Nicholson was a real actor. In his mind, it had to have been some Youtube sketch or something. When I explained that it was Jack Nicholson and everybody's heard of him...he said that he never has and he's sure nobody else has either.

Oh God.

...
I don't know what to say to that... :shock:

I woke up at 6.20 AM this morning, got on a bus at 7.30 for campus, and I get to stay here until my midterm this evening from 7 till 8, by which time buses headed in the direction I want to go will be leaving once every hour. I have an hour long ride and an hour of walking to look forward to, getting home at around 10 PM, hoping that my breakfast, two cookies, and Harvey's (if I get it after my lab) will last me the day. Hooray.

So, I've been working on a new non-Clue board game. It's called The Horror of H*ll House.

Image

Basically, a large number of people (Six of whom are playable) are offered the opportunity for a scavenger hunt in a notorious haunted house; they must seek out the hidden wealth in the manor's walls and pray to survive until daylight. The game involves collecting various artifacts and sums of cash over a set period of time. The player with the largest stash at dawn is the winner. (Though, even if you are the last one alive, you must make it to the morning, or no one wins.) Naturally, the resident ghouls and your fellow players will try their best to hinder your progress. Here are three cards (1 Player, 1 Monster, and 1 Event). There will also be Item cards (Weapons for example) which allow you to do certain things when used.

Thanks, he's three more and an Item card. Hewie the Dog is a special item card. He follows the player around and can be used to wander the house and bring back treasure and other items. However, as evident by the dog whistle, he can be "stolen" and even killed.

Why not make a new topic for this game? The new picks are fantastic.

I've never played a donkey kong game. Though I have played games with Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.

I'm a huge fan of the original Donkey Kong Country trilogy, which are excellent, entertaining games, even if their premises are similar. The Kremlings are no longer the bad guys for this new game- now it's the Tikis... It looks like it'll be excellent, just like the new Super Mario for Wii.

Does anybody know where I can find a working version of Dragon's Lair? Or Space Ace?
