Space Quest XX: Roger's Out To Lunch. This is the game that launches the career of Roger's inscrutable doppelgänger, "Weelees" Woger Rilco. ("Weelees" is just a nickname). When the call comes through and Roger's at lunch, Woger takes his place! :D

Police Quest XXXV: Sonny Bonds Goes On Coffee Break. And that's all that happens. After 34 years a the job, Sonny's about due for a coffee, right? ;)

Larry Christmas: Help our Leisure suited sleazeball navigate the ho-ho-holidays, and earn extra cash by having him become a mall Santa. Multiple endings occur based on whether you end up on the naughty or nice list.

Queen's Quest: Valanice is preparing for the royal ball, but has misplaced her moisturizer, hairbrush and favorite pair of shoes! Can you help her find them in time? Turn Castle Daventry upside down searching for them in this casual hidden object game.

Yvette and the City: Follow the Parisian adventures of Yvette Delacroix in this Amon Ra prequel, and meet the myriad of men she "touched" along the way.

I'll be damned if that naughty or nice list thing isn't pretty ingenious though...!

It even comes with its own theme song: "Have Yourself A Merry Larry Christmas", sung by a Frank Sinatra look-and-sound-a-like. :twisted:

Let's see if I can "Change a Letter, Ruin the Game"...

Bing's Quest. It's King Graham's birthday, and Bing Crosby was hired to provide after-dinner entertainment - but alas, Bing has been unavoidably detained by an evil witch! :shock: Help Bing escape her clutches and make his way across Daventry to King Graham's castle in time to sing. :)

Leisure Suit Larry In The Land of the Lounge Wizards. Due to a mix-up at Sierra HQ, Shapeir and Lost Wages are intermerged ... with the result that the members of the Wizards' Institute of Technocery now roam around Lost Wages! They've lost their magical powers and cannot find their way. Can our lovable leisure-suited dork help them find the portal to their own world?

Quest for Glory III: Wares of War. Our beloved hero (name not known, of no fixed abode) travels to Tarna, only to find that it is preparing for war! The Leopardmen have emerged from the jungle and are attacking the Simbani in full force! Kreesha is now known as Kueue, a secret agent responsible for developing new magical weapons for war, and delivering them to our hero, who's code-name becomes Pains du Monde*. After many adventures, our hero finds the one responsible for starting the war: it is a totally bald demon, stroking a long-haired, white-furred, purring Leopardman. His name? Blowfly.

Alternate title for the game: "You Only Live Thrice" (since, of course, you can pick one of three classes - fighter, wizard, or thief. ;) Unless, of course, you import a paladin... way to ruin the title...) :P

Ha! Love the "change letters" angle. Bing's Quest I found especially amusing.

Torin's Massage: Help Torin relax after his grueling adventure by planning a spa day for him. Select from hot stone, aromatherapy, deep tissue or shiatsu massages. Some are more effective on him than others, and the better he feels afterwards, the easier his next adventure will be. Choose carefully.

The Colonel's Sea Quest: Period remake of "Codename: Iceman" starring Colonel Dijon in his prime, where he captains a submarine around the Gulf of Mexico. Featuring the voice of Lloyd Bridges as Colonel Henri Dijon.

Can Boogle also get a massage in a bonus level? I like to imagine he turns into a puddle or pretzel when he's done. :)

Sorry, who's Boogle? :|

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fatter(s). Gabriel enjoys a delivery of 25 beignets.

The Feast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery. Gabriel sits back and enjoys German cuisine, including Berliners, Speck, Extrawurst, Kohlwurst, and Stippgrütze. (Common ingredient: fat or lard). Guten Appetit, Herr Knight!

(...and the mystery is: will Gabriel be able to eat it all before he explodes?)

Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Scared, Blood of the Damned. While Gabriel navigates his way through the maze in the climax of the game, Grace eventually has to yell "GABRIEL! Stop yelling like a little boy and hiding every time something scary happens!"

Yeah, I bet he melts like butter when relaxed.

We haven't done one of these in a while ...

Leisure Suit Larry LX: Lookin' For Love In All The Wrong Taverns. Starring the newest member of the family, the hard-drinkin' (but hard-of-hearin') Larry Lager.

Quest for Lori. Help our anonymous hero find God (or - in his case - Lori Cole, since she created him). Once you do, there are several options on what to say, and multiple endings depending if you're nice to Lori or not. Bonus points if you find Corey, too.

Space(d Out) Quest. While Roger tells one of his interminable brag-stories, someone slips him a mickey in his drink. When Roger wakes up, he has a headache the size of Texas. Help Roger sober up, and then find out who did it and why.

King's Rest. King Graham goes to sleep one night - and doesn't wake up the next morning! Is it a wicked witch's curse? Is Mananaman back again - or is it his step-cousin-twice-removed, Bananaman? Or did Graham just take one too many sleeping pills? It is up to you, brave (and slightly foolish) Prince Alexander, to solve the mystery!

Yobi's Basic Selling Tricks: Yobi teaches kids the art of salesmanship in this game aimed at grooming young entrepreneurs.

Yobi's Advanced Selling Tricks: Yobi helps children enter the big leagues by teaching them about the fine art of pyramid schemes.

Work Suit Willy: Willy Beamish is all grown up and a successful (and ruthless) corporate executive. No more fun and games now, it's all about work, work, work! Life is NOT about enjoying yourself anymore, got it!? It's about making more money than anybody else and rubbing their noses in it. Now get to work!!

Wow. :shock: Poor ol' Willy's all grown up and makin' everyone eat his dust. Gee, I got somethin' in my eye ... I'm so proud of him. :P

Who's Yobi, by the way? I don't think I've heard of this guy.

Joan's In the Fast Lane - the classic game gets a re-make - and this time, your game opponent is Joan Jett! Woo!! :D If she wins, she sings "I Love Playin' Games" (to the tune of "I Love Rock 'n Roll"). ;)
