Why is it that adventure games give me educational regrets? I regret not taking art courses (the better to sketch symbols, glyphs, etc.) I regret not taking more French classes, and not taking German at all (so many adventures published first in those languages). I regret not taking math classes.

Strike that last statement.

I regret not taking more piano lessons (listening to the subtle differences in sound puzzles).

Becky, you're never too old to learn wink

As a confirmed A.W.A.N. (anti walkthru adventure nut) I've spent many fascinating hours researching (and learning about) topics such as Feng Shui, Solar Systems, Greek and Egyptian Mythology when its clear that a knowledge thereof is needed to solve a puzzle.

Now, if only school had been as much fun... happydance

I'm in complete agreement, Becky. When I was in sixth grade, I used to hide in the girl's bathroom during the math class and read a book instead. Now when someone says math puzzle, you can guess where I immediately run to! laugh

I hated math when i was in school and I hate math even more now. I exspecially hate math when you have to figure out "if timmy was going 30 miles north and Jane was going 50 miles northwest at what intersection or line would the two meet?" My thoughts to this question was who is timmy and who is Jane and where are they both going and why not where both of them are going to meet and in which angle or direction they will meet in. Then gamers decide to put math in a puzzle and to test your hearing and visual aquaty and so forth it just drives me crazy!!!

<strong> I too look for a walkthrough before I start playing. I have such limited playing time, that I refuse to be stuck on something for more than a couple nights. Playing is my escape from reality. If it frustrates you so much you don't enjoy it anymore then it is no longer an escape. I have made it through a number of games without any help but I like the security of knowing help is available should I need it.

I use the walkthrough mainly for reference when I am stuck. Some puzzles are just too complicated to figure out. ie Odyssey trying to follow Kristis, took two weeks before I figured it out. Just another item, I find the reviews on Boomers good because I can find out if I need to use a disc each time I play or can just "tap in" the game company seems to forget this little gem.
