This reminds me of the sewing puzzle in one of the Nancy Drew games. I needed help getting that stupid dress made. I have stopped playing ND games for all the recipes she has to do. The last one was Dangerous By Design. Never could get that tea made and stopped trying. Game's still on my hard drive but will go along with Blackmoor Manor. I Liked Shadow Ranch a lot, though. Sometimes things will mess with a game so much that you just have to leave it alone. Agatha Christie:And Then There were None, Rhem 1, Alida, The Arrival and a few other older ones for me. It's odd that the recipe and the laser field in Still Life didn't bother me at all. I've seen some people have trouble with those, but I'll bet they had no trouble with some mazes, recipes or whatever I got fed up with. That's gaming for you.
