2 disks
game is made by lucas arts

""WICKED GAME""

I have not sold a thing yet and this is like my tenth thing I am trying to sell

I bought this for $30

cheak my other listings, I am selling more computer games.

I have not sold a thing yet and this is like my tenth thing I am trying to sell :laughing:

Maybe I should leave a comment & tell him to actually play the game before selling it?

He sells other things as well. Check out "all 3 red alert games", his "requirements" are great.

He even has a home made board game...

And a game demo, starting bid of which is $1. I've never had to pay for a demo in my life.

Poor little bugger.

I mean you can kind of argue that you travel the seas and kill bad guys in Part 3.

You don't kill any bad guys though, you just fight them and steal their money. The only person we kill is LeChuck and hell, he's been killed so many times, it's more like and inconvienience for him now.

When I saw the kid's home made board game *** zen echo *** and his sadness at never selling anything, I decided to bid on it.

Should make his day...

You do realise you may end up buying this... and convincing him to sell ***zen echo 2*** and ***zen echo 3***...

May just keep a sharp eye on this guy.

The promise of sequels is what has me intrigued.

He doesn't seem to be selling Zen Echo any more! Are you the lucky owner, jp?

Give us a review. Is it better than Thrillville?

I am assuming yes.

But in Zen Echo, can you make a guy get laid just by winning a teddy bear? Personally, that's a fantasy world I wouldn't mind escaping to.

Fantasy world? That happens to me all the time. I'm kind of sick of it now. I yearn to win teddy bears in peace.

OK, you can keep up with the great unveiling of *** zar echo *** in this thread on the force.net boards (http://boards.theforce.net/Message.aspx?topic=25128303&brd=10008&start=25129279).

Oh man, that's great, although I'm more than a little bit confused on the bus issue. Have you played it yet? I hope you're going to invite all your friends round for Zar Echo night.

Yeah, the bus is a bit odd, but an intriguing addition to the lore of *** zen echo ****. As another person points out in that Force.net thread,you need 2 dice at most points in the game, but there are points where throwing a total of 1 is desirable, which is difficult with 2 standard dice.

Haven't actually played it yet, no.

I think I will have to figure out how the winner is determined before setting up my first session.

In fact, I'd live to take it to the city, to one of those D&D type Games Workshop stores that I've always been too scared to enter, unfold it on a table with a bunch of friends, and have a good hour / hour and a half long *** zar echo *** session in there.

Glad I'm not alone in this.

Much like those establishments with blacked-out windows, marked simply 'PRIVATE SHOP', entering a Games Workshop store is an intriuging yet scary prospect. I would not attempt it alone!

The difference being that the Games Workshop doesn't tend to have blackened out windows so people will see you in there. :D

Yes, and being seen in a Games Workshop is one of those things I'm trying to avoid in this lifetime.
