Re: My Shivers playthrough

Good luck, that one's hard! And as adeyke mentioned, it's a classic puzzle, which is why I wasn't too concerned when I decided to look up the solution. :)

Yeah, it's rainy now, which is how I know my Dutch summers!

Re: My Shivers playthrough

In Shivers the points don't really matter. On my first playthrough I had over 500,000 but that was mainly solving the same puzzles over and over (because I thought that was necessary to open a door).

In the Shivers manual you can find of each puzzle what the objective is.

Re: Choose my next adventure

There's no joy to be gotten from beating the microscope, because you as a mere mortal cannot beat an AI that is a thousand times stronger than you. To top it off, there's no reward for microscope.

Re: Choose my next adventure

Yeah the Connect 4 was beyond mean - with 7 columns it's very well playable but with 8... Worst to me is the Mouse game because it's so cute I could have loved it - I got the hint book. For Mouse, the Strategy in the 11th Hour Solution Book, is: "Reset until you get an easy one."

Re: Choose my next adventure

Mmm I think 7th Guest is easier than Shivers - except for the microscope puzzle. But even for that one there's a Puzzle Skip System.

Re: Your Favorite Sierra Memory or/EDIT: Memories. <3

- GK3. Was still living with my parents when I got this, but we were moving when I just got this game. That was 2001. I was cut off from internets for a month. So I had to finish this. On my own. It completely threw me back to the obscure "no help" hardcore era. I wasn't sure if there were dead end...

Re: Soooo.... warm...

You can trust a Dutch summer about as much as a Dutch winter. There's no telling if it will be cold and frosty or surprisingly mild.

It's rainy! Hurray!

We spanned plastic over the balcony so we could sit outside. It was raining.

Re: Soooo.... warm...

Oh wow that's a great vid...

Brought back memories... when Dad and I visited Grandma, it wasn't the greatest weather but it was warm, so we spanned a large piece of plastic on the balcony's clothing lines so we could sit outside. We could watch the electrical storms, which was very impressive!

Aw, poor fishes...

Last night I woke up to a thunderstorm. And so our second heat wave of the year comes to an end, not a moment too soon! :D

Re: Soooo.... warm...

I found the heat to be more bearable in the south of France than it is here, because of the dryness (and Mistral). Never been below the A61, the road by Carcassonne (where I chipped a tooth and first learnt about thumb screws.) I did visit the Provence a lot: Les Baux, Avignon, Orange, Arles, Aix-en...
