|Dec-12-16|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Thanks again, Nuklu :)|
|Dec-13-16|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Thank you Nuklu :)|
|Dec-14-16|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Thank you Nuklu... one more please, but not before someone else has reached five :)|
|Dec-14-16|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Thank you very much Nuklu... now I'm stuck with the grand prize :(|
|Dec-14-16|| ||Annie K.: ;)
|Dec-14-16|| ||Penguincw: Yep, congrats on winning the grand prize. I believe it's 100 years for a life membership, so I guess your membership will now expire in 2126 or something.|
But too bad it's not infinite, considering you have been alive for 100s, maybe 1000s of years, giving kids gifts every Christmas.
|Dec-15-16|| ||centralfiles: latest clue must be some kind of cipher why is anatoly karpovs name speeled out but not fischers also soviet rival etc... but i dont know how to crack it|
|Dec-23-16|| ||centralfiles: I noticed many zeroes in the 16 photo clue
if you add the indivial numbers within each number,
The sum of all 24 will then equal 192 which is 12X16.
Though you can't create magic square with those numbers though I don't see how a magic square would help there would be too many symmetrical options anyhow.
|Dec-24-16|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Merry Christmas to all my friends here!|
|Dec-24-16|| ||WinKing: Merry Christmas to you <Switch>! :)|
|Dec-24-16|| ||Penguincw: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year <Switch>. Good luck in the Championship leg (and this leg of course), and of course, the WJC. :)|
As for Santa, how's it going Saint Nick? Must be great having your job, right?
Like, you work from home, work only one day a year, have lots of fun, get to wear comfortable clothing, work with kids, delivering smiles on their faces, you own some reindeer, you get cookies and milk as bonuses, you're the boss of countless dwarfs, you own your own home, and you're on top of the world, literally.
Don't forget to visit Antarctica. It's summer here, and there are some very well behaved chicks here. Some of us would also like to receive some tips from those reindeer on how they can actually fly, even without wings...
Sincerely, someone from the opposite pole.
|Dec-25-16|| ||moronovich: Merry Christmas <Switch> !|

|Jan-20-17|| ||Annie K.: Hi <Switch>... :)|
Don't miss an excellent new Esklavos: http://www.esklavos.com/escape/fall...
And a new game designer affiliated with TomaTea: Amajeto. Similar, simpler but more prolific. :)
|Jan-20-17|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <Annie> Thanks! :)|
|Jan-25-17|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <Annie> Found time for the new Esklavos...|
Nice, though (like some other Esklavos games I've played) it had good graphics and seemed to end very abruptly. A lot of build-up that didn't really lead anywhere. What story? You have just escaped from the story!
But it wasn't nearly as bad pixel-hunting-wise as most Esklavos games I've tried :) No getting stuck looking for the onyl rite pixil.
|Jan-25-17|| ||Annie K.: Heh... glad you sortof liked it. :)
I guess that *was* the story; Fede seems to like this "implied" style of storytelling. In fact, it's even realistic enough; if such an event occurred, chances are that the people affected would really never find out more than that. Annoying as that may be. ;)
|Jan-25-17|| ||Annie K.: Then again, maybe he's planning more chapters - the structure of the game's title may indicate that. I would certainly like to play out more of this story too. :)|
|Jan-25-17|| ||Annie K.: Oh, and I see I forgot to tell you about another very good "small epic" game (but much longer than the Esklavos one) I played a while back - definitely worth checking out: Roc'h Arnev Island http://play.escapegames24.com/2016/...|
