Flotsam -- congrats to the Socceroos!

I see that Marigold Ointment not only heals the skin, but it also calms the mind. Sounds just about right for what we need.

BTW -- how many days do people have left to vote for their chosen 15 adventures on this thread?

Up to here.
Over 200 games on the list.
47 games have 10 recommendations or more, with several more poised to join them with 1 more recommendation.
16 have 20 or more.
The original tends to do better than the sequel, although with multiple sequels there is more of a split.
Monkey Island 4 is the standout no show from a series with multiple games.
Only 5 sleeps left.
