Funny, I thought the same thing... "Huh, I didn't know that, but thanks for the information..." It's nice having a variety of people on TA.

Learn something new every day, eh?

BTW, the game is quite intriguing...

DBC

I give up.

Other than that I don't really know much about it other than it's a text adventure style game.
Waiting for kids to go to bed later on.
