Re: Is it the end for TZL???

Have you had any takers yet? I hope someone does step up to the plate. I know that I do not get on here often...actually I haven't been on the board in months. But when I do visit - it's like warm fuzzies!! I would be really really sad to lose this connection completely.

Re: Best Zork Format For Future Games?

I would have to agree that Zork Nemesis or GI would be the best venue for a new game. The text adventures with no graphics to me are much better than text adventures with a "picture"/art. So, my vote would be for a purist style game - or go big. I'm not really getting into the new rpg online game - ...

Re: The New Message Board

Sure - he's 8....old enough to be sluggin' em back by now!! Well, about that cake....it shrank. Looks really funny. And the boy decides he's going to tell me how it's done.

Re: puzzling mysteries

Well, I think it's easy to see how all these interests can be tied together. I'm saving the ideas for the murder mystery party for future use!! My youngest is having his 8th birthday party on Friday - and he wants another Zork style party. I wonder if his friends will tire of it - but they don't see...

Re: The New Message Board

Yep that's how it starts....but the really GOOD letterboxes you won't see right away. And there are TONS of guy letterboxers. I am working with two right now on a series based on a serial killer. They are awesome (the boxes) and ever so creepy, and incredibly difficult. Not too many people get into ...

Re: The New Message Board

Those puzzles are facinating. But expensive!! I will have to start saving my pennies...though I am still longing for my very own zorkmid. Here's why I prefer letterboxing over geocaching....geocaching is generally putting some numbers into your GPS, and then go find it. There are a few puzzly boxes ...

Re: The New Message Board

Ah - since I have been here last...I have discovered a new hobby. Quite an addicting one - and one that in some sort of strange way has allowed me to incorporated all things Zork. Well, to backtrack - two hobbies. Both include Zork strangely enough. 1st - A murder mystery game - set around the G.U.E...

Re: Dusting Off My Sword

I have been playing the legends of zork for a bit - game name is Zorket (what else??), level 31.
I figure - if nothing else - it shows there is still interest in Zork!

Long Live the big Z !! ;D

Re: Using the Maps

:o ACK!!!  CHEATING, OF COURSE!!!!! But then - you have already played the games, and drawn the maps - so there is probably no point in doing that all over again for a replay.  But I think that everyone who plays should have the joy and the frustration of creating their own maps at least once.  I re...

Re: LOST

Yes, I think they'll go back.

And - not sure it was any reference to zork at all - just my own personal take on it.
But the signs were overwhelming to me since the beginning...  but then again, I am often told that I live in my own little [zork] world... ... ...

LOST

Okay - are any of you LOST fans?  I am a die hard fan of this show. Last night was the season finale.  Okay - all along I had been thinking that the writers of this show must have played Zork along the way...last night's show proved it! Benjamin Linus had to fill this bunker with metal objects, wh...
