Simple. I'll start off in House Three, where I'll make friends with Arne the Earth Pig from Quest for Glory 3. ;) His motto is: "We dig - earth pigs."

Since he's such a good digger and burrower, I'll ask him to dig tunnels to all the other houses. Then I'll move from house to house whenever I feel like it! Huzzah! ;)

My favourite selection would be in House Six.

But I would still pick House Seven, because "Island of Dr. Brain" provides randomized puzzles and the other two games would keep my kids amused.

What about House Six would have been your calling?

I don't know You Don't Know Jack and well, Phantas 2 is one I really need to go through again now but it's so hard to set myself to it, but Hoyle Classic, that's brilliant. It's my favourite cribbage AI and if I turn off the sound and put on my own albums I can play for hours.

Toss-up between room 8 and room 1 though, since that does have my GK and my LSL and a PQ game I don't know yet... Good thing you don't really have to choose!
There's a new script around: PHANTASMAGORIA! Check the Script Party topic in the Bard's Forum!

You Don't Know Jack is a fun (sometimes "risque" adult humor) trivia.
That house I set up as a friends/family house; but then purposely threw in the most unfamily friendly game Sierra made - Phantasmagoria 2.

LSL2, SQ4 and LB2 just seem like a fun average selection to keep the mood light. Plus, I could listen to Gary Owens narrating SQ4 for days.

I'd probably go with House Seven. I haven't played any of those.

On the other end of the spectrum, I wouldn't go to House Five. I didn't like Willy Beamish or Heart of China and I think KQ5 is the weakest of the KQ series.
