:shock: Yikes! So you did, SHP. I'm sorry, I forgot. :oops: Bad Rath! Do better next time. ;)

Tawm, I really liked yours. "Sing Quest". :lol: But I don't understand "Seize Your Boot Hurry", or "Maze Quest". Is "Maze Quest" a reference to the bamboo maze in LSL3?

King's Test - King Graham sets a series of tests for Alexander and Rosella. It's all the usual subjects - geography (places in Daventry), history (the history of Daventry), alchemy (brewing up potions), philately (finding the best stamp - hang on...) :P

If they pass, they are allowed to remain his heirs! If they fail ... it's Mananananan time. (Mwahahahaha!) :twisted:

Jest for Glory - Yorick, Keapon Laffin, Punny Bones, and Ann Agrama organise a Jest-Off - the best that gnome jesters can offer! Huzzah! :D (And as a special treat, they go to the land where no gnomes have gone before - Tarna! Double-huzzah!) :P

Leisure Suit Harry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards - Through a twist in the space-time continuum, Harry Potter exchanges places (and clothes! :shock:) with Larry Laffer. Now Larry tries to hit it off with anyone at Hogwarts, while Harry tries to get out of Lost Wages.

Will they succeed? Tune in to find out!

Spaced Out Quest - Takes place between SQ4 and SQ5. In an effort to pass the final exam at Space Academy, Roger Wilco stays awake and studies for three days and three nights. :shock:

Roger's examiner is mighty impressed with this, until Roger says "Oh, it wasn't three days and nights straight". ;)

"Seize Your Boot Hurry"... "Leisure Suit Larry"... :)
"Maze Quest" is "Space Quest" with a reference to, as you guessed, LSL3.

Polite Quest: Learn proper etiquette and decorum as you prepare to host a dinner party.

Time Zone 2: The brain-twisting puzzle game! If it's 3:00 PM in London on a Wednesday, what time is it in Tokyo? Is it a Tuesday or a Thursday?

Spice Quest: Take control of a highly polished, realistic kitchen equipped with all kinds of utensils and stands. Unlock and master over 60 recipes or use dozens of lifelike ingredients to cook everything you like. All spiced up with a dash of real-life physics!

No joke. That's the actual description of Cooking Simulator.

Conquests of Lancelot (This is too obvious to not have already been mentioned?) - but a Historic Leisure Suit Larry type game, where you control Lancelot and seduce all the ladies - with the final lady being... Well, you probably already know!

Conquests of Strongbow - Sierra partners with WaRP Graphics and makes a game about Strongbow.

That's odd, Tawm. I thought it would be about this strongbow. Or maybe about Genghis Khan ... ;)

I like all of these, but especially "Polite Quest" and "Conquests of Lancelot". :D Does Lancelot also brag about *ahem* "conquests"? That would just put the stamp on it ... *grin* Or maybe he shouldn't, he's too chivalrous!

Low-Lice Quest - in this game, you play a parent whose goal it is to delouse your computer-game kids. Bonus points for imaginative home-made treatments, not store-bought ones!

Spare Quest - we had one just lying around. Like, you know, whatever. Make up your own quest. Why do we have to do all the work? (From the world's laziest design and programming team)

Leisure Suit Lorry - a truck driver drives long-distance across the USA, delivering leisure suits to wannabe Lotharios.

Ping's Quest - deliver all 4 packets without dropping one. If you drop one, go back and re-configure your router. (Bonus points to anyone who knows what this is about, but it really should be pretty easy). ;)

EwoKuest - play as Wicket W. Warrick as he quests to better the lot of Ewok-kind. :)

The Dagger of Amon Tillado - Thy quest, brave adventurer, is to seek for the fabled dagger of Amon Tillado, the Mad Priest of the Cult of the Dark One! Then, thou must struggle against its malign power as it dominate thee! :twisted: And then - twist of twists - thou must find and battle Amon Tillado himself and slay him with his own dagger, for 'tis the only way to rid thee of the dagger's curse! Mwah-ha-ha, and all that stuff! :twisted:

(Why does all this melodrama sound like one of the "Fighting Fantasy" gamebooks or the "Find Your Own Adventure" books from the 80s?) ;)

Thanks. I've never actually considered myself particularly funny. I usually come up with something funny or clever to say 5 minutes too late.

I should also proofread these before I post. "a server whose obsolete OS it on its last legs". Ughh. I'm usually not so sloppy.
