The Fool and his Money

April 21, 2006 - 1:55 am 1 Comment

I loved Cliff Johnson’s games “The Fool’s Errand” and “3 in Three” with all my heart. They were puzzly, they were clever, and they were well-written. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of his next game, “The Fool and His Money.” For a long time.

Here are some quotes about the release date:

“The Fool and his Money ships Halloween Day.”

“The game’s new release date is currently slotted for December 1st, 2003.”

“Yes, the Final Official Drop-Dead Sue-Me-for-Damages release date is April Fool’s Day-2004.”

“So I take a deep breathe and whisper… July 5, 2005… and run for cover.”

“Some of you might have noticed that the ever-retreating countdown clock is now set to December 18.”

“My production managers, Chicken Little and The Boy Who Cried Wolf, assure me that the final, absolute, no-fooling-around, drop-dead, unequivocal, categorical release date is April 24th, 2006, I hope and pray.”

“The game ships, August 7th, 2006, a week before my birthday, or else I eat a bug.”
