That’s genuinely impressive.
Those games are extremely unfair - from the ‘hoover up everyone’s quarters’ era of video game design.
We’re up to ten episodes, so this seems like a good time to mention again that @Lordof1 and I are doing a podcast about film, masterpieces and… otherwise.
I’ve even kept the accents down to a minimum for this one.
Including your own?
Well I speak with unaccented perfect crystalline Queen’s English so that’s hardly necessary.
My dear boy, your vowels betray you.
Damn those ‘U’s.
Well, since I’ve been talking about both dice and playing cards on other threads recently, I may as well put my book links up here:
Dice Divination! The history of it, and a new dice oracle based on the Elements.
(Seeing a copy of this in Foyles bookshop in London blew my mind)
And released right in the middle of lockdown in amazing timing,
Playing Card Divination!
Including 52 short stories, because apparently I love to give myself extra work.
I deliberately went for items (dice / cards) that are super cheap to obtain and don’t look spooky, but of course the divide between fortune-telling and games has always been paper thin so they ended up being objects with interesting gaming histories too.
The only drawback is, I now collect dice and playing cards and my wallet hates ebay more than ever.
Very much enjoyed the Maltese Falcon noir episode!
Ooooh love me a bit of noir.
We noired ourselves out in the end but I’m sure we’ll return to it!
I’d advocate Brick as an awesome modern teen noire for your return.
