Bernie, I forgot so many other things, as you can see from the previous Comments. LOL I'm playing an HOG now (and it is dark and raining), and I have had to forge metal, repair a fountain, make a crossbow from found materials, put out a house fire using only a rug, chop wood (after making my own axe), repair a bathtub, make jewelry, create a slide for a projector, break mirrors and crash through doors wielding a fire extinguisher, solve yet another Roman Numeral puzzle, assemble those two parts of shears already mentioned, grind coffee, and restart a boiler. LOL

Oh, and the usual umbrellas, snails, scissors, goggles, teddy bears, mushrooms, thermometers, model airplanes, feathers, butterflies, cameras and old-fashioned typewriters proliferate every HOG scene. So funny!

Hi, Reenie!

Do the baddies have red eyes grin ? I really got a kick out of your list, and it's obvious that you put a lot of time and effort into it.

Is there a game that doesn't have the slide a paper of some kind under the door to catch they key when you slide something into the lock to knock the key lose? I'd like to see that puzzle retired.

Reenie,very funny list, and very true. I always wondered why you couldn't dig thru dirt piles with your hands. You must always find a shovel.... and the locks are never ordinary, you must always find some oddly shaped item to unlock them.... and who spends all their time breaking and hiding these things when they should be busy taking over the world?

Reenie,and everyone else, this was so funny thumbsup

about the crows, have you noticed that their crowing sounds absolutely the same at every game? they must be the same crows smile I even encountered them in the "walking dead" game, so they must be moving on...

Yep. No matter what game it is, the crows seem to be the same sound file. But then, maybe what sounds like canned crow "speech" to us is just a popular slang in the crow universe. lol

Please don't forget about the windmills. A piece here and a piece there. When you finally put them together you'll be able to grind something or pump something. lol
