Yobi's my current profile picture. He was featured in the Bright Star spelling games.

Ah, okay. Thanks. :) I was wondering who that was.

You Don't Know Track - a sub of the (in)famous "You Don't Know Jack" series, devoted to track-and-field trivia. (Actually, that might just work).

Team Fartress Classic - er, no comment as to what weapons would be given to players. This idea was quickly and quietly shelved.

Empire Dearth - in this game, you are not expected (or even allowed) to build an empire. Instead, you content yourself by building up your little town and looking at the pretty pictures. ;)

Does anyone want to continue this game? :)

Sure!

Nero's Quest: Play the infamous Roman Emperor and help him achieve maximum debauchery. Throw wild parties, torture impudent subjects, and all out do what the Romans do when in Rome.

Mystery Spouse: Take control of an eccentric millionaire who buys himself a mail-order bride through a mysterious catalogue. The bride varies in each playthrough, but each one is not all she seems. Help your rich protagonist navigate the pitfalls of marriage and strive for happily ever after, assuming you survive.

Passionate Patti's Palace of Pancake Pantries: Someone has broken in and stolen the secret recipe to Patti's delicious syrup!

:lol: Nero's Quest. ;) Nero also fancied himself as an artist and a poet (but, by all accounts, his poetry stank so much that people injured themselves so they could leave and get medical treatment). :shock: So here's a quest for Nero: write a poem that doesn't suck. :P

What's "Mystery Spouse" a parody of? I don't think I know that one.

:lol: again ... Passionate Patti's etc. ;) What's the quest? Any complications? Maybe the thief published the recipe - oh noes! Now Patti must issue a Cease-and-Desist letter! :shock: But that's not all! And I'm finishing every sentence with an exclamation point, like I'm a character from the Archie Comics! :P

Qings' Quest. Cedric the Owl has betrayed Daventry and defected to the Chinese Qing Dynasty, and now the Qings have invaded! :shock: Can the elderly King Graham and his loyal son Alexander thwart the invaders, capture the traitor owl, and wring his silly neck? :twisted: Tune in to find out, same quest-time, same quest-channel! ;)

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Long Blizzard. Larry's one-liners just don't seem to work on Sylvanas Windrunner, Jaina Proudmoore, Tyrande Whisperwind, Maiev Shadowsong, or Lady Vashj. Not sure why! ;)

Police Jest. In a surprise twist, Sonny Bonds is partnered with Punny Bones! ;) The new partner jests, jokes and japes quickly get on Sonny's nerves. However, Punny's unorthodox methods of subduing criminals are certainly effective - i.e. he tells the crooks silly jokes until they tell Sonny, "Fine, arrest us - just as long as we don't have to listen to this fool!"

Code-Name: Ice Cube: You still have to pilot a submarine, but rapper/actor/producer Ice Cube is in it, so it has to be an improvement. Right?

The Black Pot: As a psychiatrist, you must help a pot recognize its tendency to deny its own qualities while attributing them to others (in particular, a Black Cauldron) is unhealthy psychological projection.

SWAT 5: There are flies. You have a fly swatter. That's it.

:lol: SWAT 5. Do you have to swat five flies? ;)

Hero's Jest. The hero's application to FACS goes missing in the post. Instead, he is sent to JACS (Joking Assassins' Correspondence School), where he is taught all the classic moves: putting up with a bucket of whitewash in his trousers, taking a pie to the face without flinching, and squirting a poisoned dart out of the daisy on his lapel. (Bwa ha ha. Laugh at me, would you?) :twisted:

Quest for Story. Like, you know, whatever. What would happen if Lori and Corey don't bother to write the story.

Police Rest. Sonny Bonds sits on a park bench and massages his weary feet. Being a beat cop is tiring, man.

Leisure Suit Harry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. Mr Potter's all grown up and has his own leisure suit! Watch out, Lost Wages! ;)

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Airport Lounge Lizards. Leisure Suit Larry's latest job: fly all around the USA and collect debts. But on the side, he chats to "babes" in the airport lounges. Naturally, he completely fails to do anything else. :P
