Well yesterday evening I spent the best part of four hours play testing Jonathan Green’s latest gamebook, Alice’s Nightmare In Wonderland. I must say I was rather impressed with how the book has turned out. After dodging a dead link early on in the adventure ( only thanks to seeing Jonathan a couple of weeks ago), I became more and more engrossed in the gameplay as it became more and more scary as she proceeded through Wonderland. He has cleverly interwoven some basic combat rules similar to Fighting Fantasy, and added a more fearsome environment without going over the top and segregating younger readers whom would be fans of the original work by Lewis Carroll. I faced one death and two failed attempts due to lack of needed items before reaching the end.
The game play mechanic seems to work fine, however I shall be playing alternate decisions and proof reading previously unused references over the weekend.
Great work Mr Green. Cannot wait for the final product and hope I’m dodoing good 😉

OK anyone who knows me know I am a fan of AMCs #The Walking Dead and I have looked forward to the spin off for so long. It doesn’t / hasn’t delivered for me 😦 . I am three shows in so far and and these people seem to be as thick as pig shit. I’m sorry but the only thing good about it is the special fx. Huge waste of money #AMC , you should be pumping that budget into the original and best. Besides….wasn’t it budget cuts that buggered up the origionals second season?
Here is what I have done with my social munzee. I have printed a few off for laminating tomorrow and will be hiding them about the place. Wonder if they bring in more caps.
As followers will know I recently took up the outdoor pastime known as Munzee. If you have never heard of it or need an excuse to get off your arse, check out this page for a basic briefing. There is also a special mention of a series of Munzees that I have hidden locally.
Had a very productive day today. I’ve done my Zombie Apocalypse munzee series at long last. Timed it just right as well, I finished off just in time to catch the last bus home with only seconds to spare. Been up till now (3:40am) editing all their descriptions. Well, must go sleep now or I’ll be zombified myself in the morning 🙂
