The Play Game

I am currently working on a new game along the lines of the True or Hoowie game. I am calling it The Play Game. At present, it is very primitive, but I thought you might like to see what I am up to. You would not believe how long it took me to get this far. My brain is made for creativity, not technical mumbo jumbo!

A lot of bugs need to be worked out. Join me, as I stumble and fumble my way through the world of links, animation, and websites. As you can see from the screenshot above, there is a new tag called The Play Game. Click on the screenshot and give it a go! It is fully functional and ready for your perusal. I plan to have three levels of difficulty: Ridiculously Difficult, Normal, and Stable Genius (very easy).  This first puzzle is Stable Genius and Normal to me, but to others it might be Ridiculously Difficult. Let’s call it Stable Normal. No. I am not saying that I am smart. I am saying that I am immersed in the world of science fiction, while others are not. So, of course this one would be easy for me!

The reasons for doing this are manifest. It’s entertaining, not only to others, but to myself. It is promotional. Each game is like a little ad for Skribbers. Also, the more I post The Play Game, the stronger my presence in the search engines like Google and Yahoo. It’s educational. We can all learn something new while having fun at the same time. It is sneaky because those who play will have no idea that they are being both solicited and educated.  Stay tuned for more!

Perceptual Precept


What is this? What do you see? What is your first impression? What, exactly, is going on here? What do you say about playing a little game? Just describe what you see or feel. It can be an entire paragraph, or one single word. Just respond with something, please.

There is no “right” or “wrong” answer. There is only an answer. One answer.  Yours.

True or Hoowie



[Pluto is not a planet in our solar system.] 

This is the curious oddity that I spoke of in another post. It was a game called True or Hoowie.

Here’s how it worked…you would read the statement in pink and decide if that statement was true, or a bunch of hoowie. Then you would click on either True or Hoowie and the little guys would tell you if you were smart or stupid (allow me to reiterate that the little guys would tell you that, not me).

Well…something happened and it got all wacky on me. It’s not supposed to be a nonstop animation that goes on forever and ever. Before the wackiness occurred, it would only go into animation mode when you clicked on it.

So I deleted about thirty of these because it didn’t make sense anymore. However, I decided to keep this last specimen (as I said before) as a curious oddity.
